Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin are one point within each other and that clearly shows the ignorance of the American public or the bogusness of these polls. Hillary is a hugely accomplished person and is Secretary of State. Palin quit her governorship to write a book and is constantly being harassed by her daughter's baby's father. Come on.
President Obama is the man Americans admired most in 2009, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, while Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin are virtually tied as the most-admired woman.Among most admired men, George Bush gets 4% of the vote and Glenn Beck gets 2%. It's a crying shame Beck's on the list at all.
The close finish by Clinton, named by 16% in the open-ended survey, and Palin, named by 15%, reflects the nation's partisan divide. Clinton was cited by nearly 3 in 10 Democrats but only 6% of Republicans, Palin by a third of Republicans but less than 1% of Democrats.
Obama dominates the field among men at 30%, though his support also shows a partisan split. He was named by more than half of Democrats but just 7% of Republicans. More at USA Today
