His margin over Trump, however, equates to an essential tie if factoring in the poll's margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points at a 95 percent confidence level. "The incumbent president has won 58 of those times". It's a rare result, since, for the most part, Americans will name the current president as Most Admired Man.

The survey from Gallup has taken place every year since 1946, and rounding off a decade at the top, the former U.S. president came out as America's choice again.

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.
