Michelle Obama is ‘most admired’ woman in the world new poll says

Michelle Obama, who earlier this year released bestselling memoir "Becoming", topped this list as the world's most admired woman - replacing last year's leader Angelina Jolie. They are the only musicians on the list. He's topped the list every time YouGov has conducted the survey.

- Although more than two years have passed since the Obamas left the White House, former first lady Michelle Obama remains loved and appreciated throughout the world, according to a new poll.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama came in second for the second year in a row behind Bill Gates - the world's second richest man at a net worth of $96.5 billion.

Interestingly, in the YouGov survey of the Most Admired within the USA, neither Taylor nor Madonna make the cut, nor does any other singer, male or female.

Former first lady Michelle Obama responds to questions as she is interviewed by actress Sarah Jessica Parker during an appearance for her book, "Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama" at Barclays Center Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, in NY. President Donald Trump is the second-most admired man in the United States, while Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the second-most admired woman in the United States.

Iran's seizure of two ships 'unacceptable': UK
Iran's seizure of the British tanker is being widely viewed as a retaliatory act. The U.K. government has been increasing pressure on Iran to release the tanker.

"This year the study expanded to cover the views of people in 41 countries - the most ever - with more than 42,000 people being interviewed to compile the list", the site reads.

Obama, whose recent autobiography, Becoming, has sold 10 million copies, was named by nearly 9 per cent of respondents.

Comedian Ellen DeGeneres was number 15, while first lady Melania Trump came in at 19 out of 20 names, according to this poll.

For what reason is Michelle Obama the "most admired" in the world? So congratulations, Michelle Obama!

This is an individual who has said she's never been proud to be an American. They invested in real estate by purchasing their original home in Chicago before the presidency (at $1.65 million in 2005) and an 8,200-square-foot mansion in Washington, DC, for $8.1 million which they previously rented. Soon, the Obamas can hit the billion-dollar mark and join the circle of wealthy billionaires like Winfrey.
