A sound Trump policy on Africa could protect U.S. interests

It's been over a year (!) since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election, and the American people still can't help but admire the former secretary of state.

Seventeen per cent of the Americans who polled said Obama was the man they admired most, down from 22 per cent a year ago. This is Clinton's 16th year in a row and Obama's tenth year in a row.

"What? Like it's hard?"

Gallup said about one-quarter of respondents could not name a man or woman they admire most, roughly similar to last year's share who offered no opinion in response to the question. Pope Francis took third place with 3% of respondents, and the rest of the top dozen men included politicians, religious figures and billionaires. The current first lady Melania Trump tied for eighth place with four other women.

The vice president wanted to make sure that he was in place to break a tie if it were necessary, the official said. Security Council, blocked a council resolution demanding that the Trump administration rescind its decision.

Gallup said its poll was conducted from December 4 to December 11 with a random sample of 1,049 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 USA states and the District of Columbia.

What may surprise many is that President Donald Trump is now the second most admired man in the world. A Gallup poll released earlier this month showed the share of U.S. adults holding a favorable opinion of Clinton had dropped to 36%, a new low. According to Gallup, which released its 2017 findings Wednesday, Obama is the first former president to win the title since President Dwight Eisenhower did in 1968.

Obama previously beat out Trump for the title of "most admired" in 2015 and 2016, where he held a respective 17 to 5 percent and 22 to 15 percent edge over the Republican.

Finally, the poll also points out that although Clinton took the No. 1 spot for women this year, the likelihood that she will retain this honor in the future remains uncertain and will be "challenging in coming years with her political career likely over". Former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt received the second highest number of wins with 13 nominations.
