The winner America’s most admired woman goes to…

Michelle Obama!

According to a Gallup poll released recently, former first lady Michelle Obama won the award for most admired woman this year, knocking Hillary Clinton from her spot at the top of the list for the first time in 17 years.

Clinton has appeared in the top ten a whopping 27 times, taking the title 22 times. This is more than any man or woman, according to Gallup.

According to CNN, Clinton was named most admired woman in 1993 and 1994 for the first two terms of her husband Bill Clinton’s presidency. She took the top spot again in 1997 through 2000. She also took the title from 2002 through 2017 – at the time, she was a presidential candidate, US senator and secretary of state.

The polling period this year took place between Dec. 3 – 12 and was conducted just like all the years before – by asking the open-ended question to Americans, “name the woman you admire most.” 15 percent of Americans this year mentioned Michelle Obama. This is interesting because Michelle has finished second to Clinton three times before.

This year, Oprah Winfrey finished second to Michelle, followed by Clinton and then first lady Melania Trump.

A possible reason Michelle Obama made the top of the list this year could be because of her current tour of the US in which she is promoting her best-selling memoir “Becoming.”

Other women who made the top-ten this year include Queen Elizabeth, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
