President Thomas S. Monson one of Americans' 10 'Most Admired Men,' Gallup poll says
Scott G. Winterton, Deseret News
LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson is one of the 10 "Most Admired Men," according to an annual poll of Americans by Gallup.
President Monson is joined on the list by U.S. President Barack Obama, former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the Rev. Billy Graham, Pope Benedict XVI and American business icons Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
"It is common for the president of the Mormon Church to receive mentions, but (President) Monson is the first to make the top 10," wrote Gallup managing editor Jeffrey Jones in its blog.
The results are based on a Dec. 15-18 USA Today/Gallup poll that asked Americans to name, without prompting, the person they most admire living in any part of the world.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was named the "Most Admired Woman" in the Gallup poll.
