Thomas: Trump's accomplishments obscured by distractions

Following a year in which he achieved new lows in approval ratings for a new president, Trump is now the first chief executive to not win Gallup's Most Admired Man poll in the first year of his presidency since, uh, ever. Seventeen percent of those surveyed named Obama as the man they most admire, to 14 percent for Trump.

Former president Barack Obama and former candidate Hillary Clinton are the most admired man and woman in the US, according to the Gallup poll.

"Trump's unpopularity is holding him back from winning the most admired distinction", Gallup observes. "The incumbent president is the usual victor, since he is arguably the most prominent figure in the country", Gallup reports. Nevertheless, Clinton retained enough support among the public to top every other woman on the list.

Others receiving votes as most admired man this year include Pope Francis, Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and the Dalai Lama.

Oprah Winfrey, who some say is rumored to be considering a run for President, comes in as the third most admired woman this year.

Still, it's the 22nd time Clinton's been rated the most admired woman - more than any other man or woman ever on the list. Obama's 10th year as most admired man makes him second only to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The poll was conducted from 4-11 December among 1,049 American adults from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and has a margin of sampling error of ±4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. Former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt received the second highest number of wins with 13 nominations. Another 9 percent name a friend or relative as their most admired man, with 13 percent doing the same for most admired woman.
