Senator Bernie Sanders and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are among the men most admired by Americans this year, according to a new poll.

Gallup poll released Wednesday found that the Jewish Independent from Vermont and the prime minister placed seventh and ninth respectively in the list of most admired men, with one percent of Americans naming each of them as their first or second choice.

Former US president Barack Obama, President Donald Trump and Pope Francis placed first, second and third, with 17, 14 and two percent, respectively, citing them as their first or second choice.

No Jewish women made the list of top ten most admired women, although one percent of Americans named Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as their first or second choice.

Less than 0.5% named Ivanka Trump, Trump’s Jewish daughter, as their first or second choice. Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey topped the overall list for women.

The poll was based on telephone interviews with 1,049 adults ages 18 and over conducted between December 4 and December 11. It has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
