President Donald Trump has become the most admired man in 2020, ending the 12-year run held by his predecessor Barrack Obama, according to the annual Gallup survey.

The survey, released on Tuesday, Dec. 29, shows that 18% of Americans named President Trump as their most admired man, putting Obama to second place at 15%.

Only 6% of the survey’s respondents named Joe Biden for the title, though he allegedly won the 2020 election.

The survey was conducted from Dec. 1 to Dec.17 with 1,018 adults.

Three percent named National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, while 2% said Pope Francis.

The remaining top 10 men include businessman Elon Musk, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, basketball player LeBron James, and the Dalai Lama—the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists, all of whom received 1%.

This year marks the 10th time Donald Trump has ranked among the top 10 most admired men. He entered the list in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2011, even before jumping into the political sphere. Meanwhile, Biden has only appeared in the top 10 for second time, with the previous one in 2018.

According to Gallup, 48% of Republicans named President Trump this year, with no other public figure receiving more than 2% of Republicans’ votes.

Obama is the top choice among Democrats, at 32%, but that is down from 41% last year. Only 13% of Democrats named Biden.

Among independents, both Trump and Obama got 11% support, Biden received 3% and Fauci 2%.

In the survey’s history, the Rev. Billy Graham, who died in 2018, finished among the top 10 a record 61 times during his life. Former President Jimmy Carter is the living man with the most top 10 finishes—29—putting him behind Graham, and Ronald Reagan for third all-time. Carter finishes just outside the top 10 this year but made the 2019 list.
