President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton top a Gallop poll as the world’s most admired living man and woman in 2013, according to a Dec. 30 Reuters report. This is the sixth consecutive time Americans have named President Obama the most admired man, and the 12th consecutive year for Clinton.

While the President is admired, the percentage of those who admire him fell to 16 percent this year, which down 30 percent from 2012. Topping the most admired list is typical for sitting U.S. presidents, Reuters reports.

According to The Christian Science Monitor, actor Clint Eastwood joined Bill Gates, Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney and former President Jimmy Carter for one percent each. The Gallop poll involved an open-ended survey of 1,031 Americans.

UPI.com reports that other admired women include Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama and Sarah Palin. Former President George W. Bush, Pope Francis, Bill Clinton also made the list. Though 7 percent of participants named Nelson Mandela as their most admired man, he did not make the list because only living men or women are named on the official list.
