It's the 10th year at the top of the list for Obama and the 16th year for Clinton.
President Donald Trump took second place for most admired man, getting 14 percent of respondents. Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second place for the most admired woman with 7 percent of respondents.
Clinton has topped the list 22 times total, which Gallup says is more than anyone else, man or woman. Obama's 10th consecutive year as most admired man makes him second only to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Gallup also said sitting presidents usually win the most admired spot, and that Obama was the first former president to top the list since Eisenhower.
Gallup's poll of 1,049 US adults was taken from December 4-11, 2017, with a margin of error of ±4% points.
