Situational awareness: "President Trump's legal team plans to cast former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn as a liar seeking to protect himself if he accuses the president or his senior aides of any wrongdoing", three people familiar tell WashPost's Carol Leonnig. To no surprise, there was a wide partisan split, with 35 percent of Republicans saying Trump was most admired man of the year, and 39 percent of Democrats picking Obama. The poll, conducted by Gallup, has been conducted since 1946. Of those 71 surveys, the incumbent president has won 58 times, the poll noted.

Barack Obama's numbers were down from 22 percent the previous year, but he was the first former president to win since Dwight D. Eisenhower did so in 1967 and 1968.

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted with a random sample of 1,049 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 USA states and the District of Columbia. The incumbent president is usually the victor, "since he is arguably the most prominent figure in the country", Gallop stated in its news release. Pope Francis took third place with 3% of respondents, and the rest of the top dozen men included politicians, religious figures and billionaires. John McCain and Elon Musk scored 2 percent each. Bernie Sanders, Bill Gates, Vice President Mike Pence and the Dalai Lama with a respective 1 percent.

For the 10th year in a row, Americans have voted Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as the man and woman living anywhere in the world who they admire most, according to a recent Gallup poll.

Gallup's December poll found 17% of respondents named Obama the man they admired most, a dip from 22% of respondents saying the same past year.

"She has held the title 22 times in total, more than anyone else".

Donald Trump trailed Obama in second place for the men while Michelle Obama was close behind Clinton in second place for the women. This is Clinton's 16th year in a row and Obama's tenth year in a row. "She managed to win this year because she remains arguably more prominent than other contenders".

"Clinton's and Obama's standings this year are more tenuous than in the past", Gallup reported.
