Previous president Barack Obama is as yet America's most appreciated man, as per Gallup's Most Admired Man and Woman survey distributed Wednesday.

Seventeen per cent of the Americans who polled said Obama was the man they admired most, down from 22 per cent past year.

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.

"Hillary Clinton has been named most admired more than any woman - or man - in Gallup's polling history".

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted with a random sample of 1,049 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 US states and the District of Columbia.

However, the website said Pres. Donald Trump's "unpopularity is holding him back from winning the most admired distinction".

Eleanor Roosevelt is a distant second, getting 13 most honorable mentions in the poll. Obama's 10th year as most admired man makes him second only to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. "The incumbent president is the usual victor, since he is arguably the most prominent figure in the country", Gallup reports. The poll, conducted by Gallup, has been conducted since 1946.

Overall, she has held the title 22 times, more than any other woman-or man, for that matter. Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second with 7 percent of respondents, and the third place finisher at 4 percent support was Oprah Winfrey.

Clinton "remains arguably more prominent than other contenders", Jones wrote in a blog post announcing the findings. Rounding out the top 10 for the men were Pope Francis, Rev. Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Bill Gates, Benjamin Netanyahu, Jeff Bezos, The Dalai Lama, and Mike Pence. "However, retaining that stature may be more challenging in coming years with her political career likely over", the poll stated online.
