President Donald Trump and Former President Barack Obama tied for the top spot of “Most Admired Man” according to Gallup’s annual poll.

The Gallup measures the public opinion on almost all-political, social, and economic issue while its data reaches the “highest level of government, the judiciary, business, and academia.” It continually surveys the world’s citizens in more than 130 countries and areas.

Each year since 1948 Gallup has asked Americans which man and woman they admire most. While this makes it the 12th time that Obama earns a top spot, it is the first time Trump is there to accompany him.

Both earned 18% support among Americans and it is no surprise that 41% of Democrats named Obama their most admired while 45% Republicans chose Trump. Also according to the Gallup, 12% of independents chose Obama and 10% chose Trump.

As for the rest of the list, there was no other man that was mentioned by more than 2% of respondents. The rest of the top 10 list included Jimmy Cater, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Pope Frances, Bernie Sanders, Adam Schiff, the Dalai Lama and Warren Buffett.

Who do you admire more–Obama or Trump??
