Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama are the most admired woman and most admired man in the world, according to a new USA Today/Gallup poll.

It’s the eleventh year in a row Clinton has received the honor and the fifth year in a row for Obama.

Following Clinton are: Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Condoleezza Rice, Sarah Palin, Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, Queen Elizabeth, Margaret Thatcher, Burmese opposition politician Aung San Suu Kyi and Kate Middleton.

After Obama are: Nelson Mandela, Mitt Romney, Billy Graham, George W. Bush, and Pope Benedict, Bill Clinton, the Dalai Lama, and in a three-way tie George H.W. Bush, Ron Paul and John McCain.

Hillary Clinton's first-place finish “further solidifies her position as the most often named most admired woman in Gallup's history — a total of 17 times going back to her first year as first lady in 1993,’’ the poll said.

She missed being most admired in 1995 and 1996 when she finished second to Mother Teresa, and in 2001, when she came in after Laura Bush.

After Clinton, Eleanor Roosevelt is second with most first-place finishes — 13 — for most admired woman. She is followed by Thatcher, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Mother Teresa.

On this year’s men’s list, there were no winners from the world of business, while last year the group included Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, and Bill Gates.
