Obama won by a wide margin in this year's poll after finishing second to the former secretary of state and former first lady in three previous surveys.

"The year 2018 brought about a change at the top of Gallup's Most Admired Woman list for the first time in 17 years, with Hillary Clinton falling back now that she has more fully retreated to private life after a long career as first lady, US senator, secretary of state and two-time presidential candidate", Gallup pollsters note.

First lady Michelle Obama speaks as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton listens during a campaign rally in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on October 27, 2016.

Clinton was named the most admired woman in 1993 and 1994 for the first two years of her husband Bill Clinton's presidency.

From Dec. 3 to Dec. 12, Gallup conducted phone interviews with a random sample of 1,025 Americans, asking them to name the man or woman living in any country who they most admire.

Then, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse codirector Rodney Rothman chimed in: "I didn't know it until you just said this". Rogen, in turn, tweeted: "Sorry dude".

President Donald Trump followed the former president on this year's list of "most admired men".

Among women, Oprah Winfrey came second, while Clinton fell to third. Both Hillary Clinton and First Lady Melania Trump were in third place. Gallup first asked the question in 1946 and has done so every year since, except 1976.

Queen Elizabeth finished in the top 10 for the 50th time - a record, Gallup said.

Also on the list are Pope Francis, Bill Gates, Bernie Sanders, Bill Clinton, Dalai Lama, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, and Mike Pence. However, President Trump did make the list, coming in second, with 13 percent of people surveyed mentioning him.
