Hillary Clinton leads Democratic polls and is apparently admired by millions
(UPI/Mike Thriller)

PRINCETON, N.J. – Two Democratic politicians – Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama – were named in a poll as this year’s runaway winners as the most admired public figures.

A Gallup poll released today shows Clinton named 13% of the time when people were asked about women they admired most. She was followed by Malala Yousafzai at 5% and Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama with 4% each.

On the men’s side, President Barack Obama was even farther ahead, being named 17% of the time by those polled. He was followed by Pope Francis and Donald Trump with 5% each.

Gallup said that “although Clinton and Obama each led this year’s poll by significant margins, the percentage mentioning each as most admired is slightly lower than the percentages they have received in the past. Across the eight times Obama has been most admired man, an average 23% of Americans have named him, while in the 20 times Clinton has been most admired woman, an average 16% have named her.”

Trump has been named in this annual poll before, when  “Gallup asks Americans, in an open-ended fashion to name the man they admire most. The successful businessman has finished in the top 10 four other times, including from 1988 through 1990 and in 2011,” Gallup reports.

    Obama should impose a tax on Hillary’s poops, that would generate some revenue for sure.

      The more trump goes on at the mouth the more media coverage he gets and since he is paying his own way that is called free coverage. Good or bad, at lest he hasn’t broken the law, People here talk about the good old boy club, the clintons own the good old boy club.

        @David-Isn’t it strange that Trump is still ahead in the polls? He is now head to head with Hellary who has no competition. When Bill the great lover hist the trail she will lose even more. He is the only president who turned the White House into a whore house. Obama has turned it into a mosque.

            Think about it, we have millions out of work, you send all the illegals home and there would be that many more jobs available for our citizens. I am just talking about illegals, not legal immigrants.

            are you saying that the jobs that they do are beneath you? I have probably done those jobs myself when i was a kid or in the military, a job is a job and if you need to take care of your family then it doesn’t matter what it is. By your saying that makes you sound racist.

          What I am getting at is trumps business savy. He keeps saying things that piss people off, lack of PC, but in doing so he is getting free publicity. To me that sounds like a good businessman.

            @David-Trump tells it like it is and the P.C. pissant, big mouth liberals just can’t understand when they are told the truth. They are so used to being lied to an lying themselves it has become a way of life for them. If you can call living on someone else’s money and charity a life.

            Ya, real business savvy alright.
            Trump declared bankruptcy 4 times, came out smelling like a rose while others were stuck with his failures & bills.

            Bankruptcy 1: The Trump Taj Mahal, 1991
            Bankruptcy 2: Trump Plaza Hotel, 1992
            Bankruptcy 3: Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts, 2004
            Bankruptcy 4: Trump Entertainment Resorts, 2009

            And you admire this ass?

            The business of his that someone else ran when bankrupt, he never went bankrupt just the business and he followed the law too. when you run a business that depends on other people spending their money sometimes bad things happen, that doesn’t make it your fault.

            You don’t understand, those were “Trump” businesses and Trump played the system and others paid for his failures.
            Sometimes bad things happen?
            Not once, not twice, not three times but count it, four times!

            Others paying for your bad decisions, isn’t that what you call “socialism”?

            Not Trumps fault you say?
            Trump is a control freak & huge micro-manager….he knew.

    Hillary’s constant need to go poop could be a medical condition that she will need treatment for before she even thinks of being president. What will she do, leave a press conference saying “I need to go poopy.”

    People would not have voted for her if they had been at the debate where she took a long poop break, the smell when she returned from the restroom was putrid.
