New Poll: Michelle Obama Is ‘Most Admired Woman’ In The World

According to a newly released Gallup poll, former first lady Michelle Obama is the “most admired woman” in the U.S. for 2019. She was also named the most admired woman in the world according to a YouGov poll, beating Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, and Queen Elizabeth II as well as Hillary Clinton.

Mrs. Obama earned 10 percent of the write-in vote, according to Gallup. First lady Melania Trump was second with 5 percent.

Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton and teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg all got three percent of the vote each.

It’s Obama’s second year in a row at the top of the Gallup poll. She earned 15 percent of the vote last year.

The polls come after Obama’s global book tour for her best-selling memoir, “Becoming.” The book, published in November 2018, sold more copies than any other book published in the United States that year.

Michelle Obama was also consistently more popular in polls compared to her husband President Barack Obama while he was in office, according to The Washington Post.

Former President Obama tied with President Trump as “most admired man” in the Gallup poll, with both men getting 18 percent of the vote.
