(Reuters) - Americans named President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the world's most admired living man and woman in 2013, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday.
Obama topped the annual list for the sixth consecutive year, a typical ranking for a sitting U.S. president, the polling organization said.
But the percentage of those surveyed who choose him as the most admired man fell to 16 percent this year, down from 30 percent in 2012.
The president's job approval rating has dropped during a year marked by a botched healthcare rollout and stalled legislative initiatives at the start of his second term.
Clinton earned the top spot among most admired women for the 12th consecutive year and 18th time overall, more than any other woman in the poll's history.
Fifteen percent of Americans surveyed gave the former first lady and U.S. senator the highest ranking, down from 21 percent who named her as the most admired woman last year, the poll showed.

What's wrong with this poll?
Good God, America.
Are you that far gone?
Bill Clinton’s still the all time best seller of urinal cakes with Jane Fonda for the gals.. but Oprah’s gaining.. literally. (Personal poll)
Gallup said its data came from a poll of 1,031 adults between December 5 and 8, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.That is a much higher than normal margin of error, isnt it?
“Gallup said its data came from a poll of 1,031 adults between December 5 and 8”.
They admire liars....sadly.
"Are you that far gone?"
This country is circling the drain. This is just a piece of evidence as to proof of it.
When the two most corruption marred and dishonest politicians in the last 100 years are also the most admired and respected.....this country is finished!
They are lying. Real Americans loathe both of those reprobates.
I wonder if this is what it was like in Sodom and Gomorrah...
The tanked, lying Leftist media use selective data, say, Detroit City workers to poll:
Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer:
WASHINGTON New Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is also a prolific Obama bundler, according to a list of top Obama campaign fundraisers obtained by The New York Times.
According to the document, Mayer has raised $112,400 for Obamas reelection and $386000 since 2007 for the president. She is listed by her former title, Vice president for search products and user experience at Google.
It’s always political nowadays and obviously the LIVs make up 47% of the sample size.
BHO would score way over 16% in that poll.
Please note that the same two names top the “least admired” list. This merely shows what a small number a plurality can be and who’s gotten the most media attention over the year.
To add some fuel to the fire, some pundit said that if we had the same demographic back in the day, Dukakis would have won easily.
Our elected officials are not the problem.
The electorate is the problem.
