Americans name Hillary Clinton the most admired woman in the world for a 13th-straight year

Hillary Clinton is once again the most admired woman in the world, according to Gallup's annual year-end poll. Clinton finished with 12 percent in the open-ended voting, followed by Oprah Winfrey at eight percent, and Malala Yousafzai at five percent.

The former Secretary of State and presumptive Democratic presidential candidate has held the top spot for 17 of the past 18 years, her streak only interrupted, in 2001, by ex-First Lady Laura Bush.

On the men's side of the poll, President Obama (19 percent) beat out Pope Francis (six percent) for first, with Bill Clinton coming in a distant third at three percent.
