Gallup: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Barack Obama and Donald Trump are tied this year as the most admired man. It is Obama’s 12th time in the top spot and the first for Trump.
Each year since 1948, Gallup has asked Americans to name, in an open-ended fashion, which man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most. This year’s results are based on a Dec. 2-15 poll.
Americans’ choice for most admired man this year is sharply divided along party lines: 41% of Democrats name Obama, while 45% of Republicans choose Trump.
