Donald Trump named runner-up in Gallup's 'Most Admired Man' poll
For decades, Gallup has been asking Americans which man and woman in the world they admire most.
This year, President Barack Obama claimed the top honor among men, and Donald Trump was named the runner-up. Trump tied with Pope Francis for the 2nd place spot.
Gallup noted, "Trump's surprisingly strong and often controversial presidential campaign has made him a prominent news figure this year and, thus, top-of-mind for many Americans. This helps explain his strong showing when Gallup asks Americans, in an open-ended fashion, to name the man they admire most."
