Former President Obama may be out of sight, but he isn't out of mind with respondents of Gallup's annual "Most Admired Man" poll.
The survey, which polled more than 1,000 American adults from December 4 to 11, found that 17 percent of respondents most admire Obama, compared to 14 percent who most admire Trump.
This year marks the 16th consecutive year that Clinton has taken the top spot as the most admired woman.
"Hillary Clinton has been named most admired more than any woman - or man - in Gallup's polling history". Other women on the most admired list include Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Warren, Angela Merkel, Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, and current First Lady Melania Trump.
Gallup's poll of 1,049 U.S. adults was taken from December 4-11, 2017, with a margin of error of ±4% points.

In the 71 years Gallup has gathered information, the present president has won the best title 58 times.
Gallup 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 December poll found 17% of respondents named Obama the man they admired most, a dip from 22% of respondents saying the same previous year. Nevertheless, Clinton retained enough support among the public to top every other woman on the list.
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. The next winningest woman is Eleanor Roosevelt, at 13 times.
Pope Francis finished third, with 3%.
Obama retaining his title this year is a bit unusual. "She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders".
