The former first lady bumped Hillary Clinton from the top spot. Clinton was the most admired woman for 17 years.

For the first time in 17 years, Hillary Clinton was knocked from her spot as the most admired woman in America, according to Gallup’s yearly poll, by a fellow former first lady: Michelle Obama.

Axios reported on Thursday that Mrs. Obama took the honor alongside her husband, former President Barack Obama, who has held the title of most admired man for the past 11 years.

Clinton held the title of most admired woman for 17 consecutive years, but this year was surpassed by both Obama and Oprah Winfrey. President Trump came in second place for the fourth year in a row, marking only the 13th time — and Trump's second — that a sitting president didn't top the list since its inception in 1946.
