"For the first time in 17 years, a woman other than Hillary Clinton has been named by Americans as the woman they admire most," a press release summarizing the poll said. "Former first lady Michelle Obama, who finished second to Clinton three times and is currently touring to promote her recently released autobiography, won by a significant margin this year."
"Usually, the president does not win when he has subpar job approval ratings, as is the case with Trump. Trump and Gerald Ford are the two presidents to date who did not win the honor while in office," the release said.
The top 10 spots for women included Queen Elizabeth, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as for men — former President George W. Bush, Pope Francis as well as business magnate and philanthropist Bill Gates made it to the top 10.
