LMAO Clinton Soars, Palin Plummets In Most-Admired Survey

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sets a record in Gallup’s annual most-admired survey, while Sarah Palin falls farther off the popularity radar. Clinton was named as most-admired woman for the 17th time since she became a national figure in 1992. Eleanor Roosevelt held the previous record when she was named 13 times as the most-admired woman.

The only two women to finish ahead of Clinton in that 20-year period were Mother Teresa (twice) and Laura Bush (once).

Obama was named most-admired man for the fifth time. President Dwight Eisenhower was named 12 times in the survey as most admired.

Palin came within one percentage point of matching Hillary Clinton in 2009, when she had 15 percent of the polling, compared with 16 percent for Clinton.

In 2012, Palin had just 2 percent of the polling, finishing in a fifth-place tie. Clinton had 21 percent, followed by First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Condoleezza Rice.

President Barack Obama had 30 percent of the polling for men, followed by Nelson Mandela, Mitt Romney, the Reverend Billy Graham, George W. Bush, and Pope Benedict XVI.

The pollsters at Gallup say it’s not unusual for the current president to be named as most-admired man. But in the past, Pope John Paul II, Henry Kissinger, and then-former president Eisenhower were picked over sitting presidents.

With the exception of Mother Teresa, the eight most popular women in the poll since 1946 have had political connections. Margaret Thatcher and Jacqueline Kennedy won a combined 11 times.

The Reverend Billy Graham has appeared in the top 10 list a staggering 56 times, with Ronald Reagan second with 31 appearances. Queen Elizabeth II has been in the top 10 list 46 times. However, neither Graham nor the queen were ever named first in the poll.

Among the names from the 2011 top 10 list that didn’t make it in the following year are Angeline Jolie, Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Laura Bush, Ellen DeGeneres, and Michele Bachmann.

Palin is a joke.

She's quite charismatic and even though I think she's stupid I quite like her. Hilly is a witch. For different reasons I'd hate either of them getting near nukes or serious power.

It's amazing how strong the sympathy vote is. Forget about anything hilly has done, the most important thing is she's having a health scare. I dislike her intensely.

Actually I like Palin

She came out and bashed the GOPe in Tampa over the changing of the rules and said it was outrageous.

As far as Hillary, you will notice they took the polling the week Hillary hit her head, so she was in the news. You don't actually believe in these manipulated polls do you ?

Hillary has about 15,000 Facebook friends, Palin has 3.5 million. I think Palin has a bit more pull.

not that I like palin

but people must be smoking bath salts if they think Hillary is admirable in any way shape or form.

Funny...Yahoo had a poll up


Yahoo had a poll up a few days ago to the effect "Who do you have the most respect for/admire the most?"...or however exactly they worded it.

A. Obama
B. H. Clinton
c. Neither

After a couple hundred thousand votes...it was 20% Obama, 18% Clinton, and 62% neither.

I would have expected the 'neither' answer to be much closer to 100%.

The "talking up" begins

for 2016.
Polls run by puppets mean nothing, but do so much damage.

F**k I hate that you're

right. And I just said "fuck" out loud in my work place as I read that. Ah well, it was warranted.

Exactly what I was thinking, though. It's the same damn script over and over and my wife and I are tired of it.

Ahhhhh does anyone have the URGE to put a politician in jail?!?

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

You already know! That's why Bill

You already know! That's why Bill Clinton excepted Obama, just so she can have a nice job in his cabinet, and then when 2016 comes around, it'll be Hillary in a landslide! It's so predictable man. You remember it was the Clintons who brought up the birther issue! So Hillary became Secretary of State just for her silence, that's all.
