Other women on the most admired list include Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Warren, Angela Merkel, Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, and current first lady Melania Trump.

The more detailed data from Gallup showed Trump was tied for seventh with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

While Obama managed to be at the top for a 10th year, he has some way to go to match his female counterpart, Hillary Clinton.

Trump finished second in the poll at 14 percent.

According to Gallup, "a quarter of Americans can not name a man or a woman they admire most" while 9% name a relative or friend as the most admired man and 13% do so for the most admired woman. But Trump's unpopularity kept him from the top spot, by a margin of 3 percent. On the men's side, the 2016 election winner wasn't the, well, winner. Obama is only the second former president to finish first in the list-along with Eisenhower in 1967 and 1968, while Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson was finishing up his time in office.

Concluding the national security strategy address that he delivered earlier this month, President Trump described his foreign policy aim "to celebrate American greatness as a shining example to the world".

Obama retaining his title this year is a bit unusual.

Only one other man-another former president-has been this admired in Gallup's poll.

Seventeen percent of those polled found that Barack Obama was the most admired man living anywhere in the world, a title he's had for the past 10 years.

The poll, which has been taken every year but one since 1946, questioned 1,049 USA adults from December 4-11. Michelle Obama was just behind Clinton on that list, with 7 percent to Clinton's 9 percent.
