President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been named the most admired people among Americans for the sixth year in a row in a survey conducted by Gallup, although both of their ratings have taken a hit compared with last year.
The second most admired man was George W. Bush and the second most admired woman was Oprah Winfrey. Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul tied with Clint Eastwood and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the eighth most admired man of 2013.
From The Hill:
President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were named the most-admired people in 2013 for the sixth year in a row, according to a Gallup survey.
The open-ended poll released Monday found 16 percent of people named Obama as the most-admired man, while 15 percent named Clinton as the most-admired woman. Both scores, however, have dropped significantly since 2012.
In 2012, 30 percent of people named Obama as the most-admired man, while 21 percent named Clinton the most-admired woman.
