Gallup on Wednesday released the results of its annual poll to determine the most admired man and woman in America — and former President Barack Obama won the title for the tenth straight year.

Even though Obama has been out of office for nearly a year now, he still bested current President Donald Trump by three percentage points in Gallup’s poll. Additionally, former Trump rival Hillary Clinton was once again named the most admired woman in America for the sixteenth straight year.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."
