Michelle Obama Named Most Admired Woman For The Second Year In A Row


January 3, 2020

We didn’t even need a survey for this!

Forever First Lady Michelle Obama was named the “Most Admired Woman” of 2019 in a Gallup poll for the second year in a row, ABC News reports.

Obama was the only woman to hit double digits in her ranking percentage, garnering 10% of votes in the Gallup survey. Coming close behind her was media mogul Oprah Winfrey and teen climate change advocate Greta Thunberg. 


President Barack Obama was also named “Most Admired Man,” his 12th time receiving the prestigious honor. Gallup has polled people every year since 1948, asking Americans randomly to name the man and woman they admire the most. 

The First Lady was also named “World’s Most Admired Woman” earlier this year in a survey conducted by research group YouGo. Her memoir “Becoming” just released a workbook and she is also nominated for a Grammy for the audio version of the book.

Congratulations to our First Lady! She is truly deserving.
