After being the most admired woman for the last 17 years, Americans have switched from pro-abortion Hillary Clinton and now say Michelle Obama is the woman they admire most.

According to a Gallup poll released Thursday, Obama is the woman Americans admire the most, with 15 percent of those surveyed picking her. Abortion proponent Oprah Winfrey came in second place with 5% of the vote, and Clinton tied for third place with Melania Trump, with 4 percent of the vote.

The results are despite Obama advocating abortion and calling Trump supporters “wing nuts and kooks.”

Gallup’s annual survey, conducted Dec. 3-12 this year, asks Americans, in an open-ended question, to name the man and woman living anywhere in the world today whom they admire most. Gallup first asked the question in 1946 and has done so every year since, except 1976.

Also among the top 10 most admired women this year is Queen Elizabeth, who placed in the top 10 for a record 50th time. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, human rights activist Malala Yousafzai and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi are the other top 10 finishers this year.

Like the queen of England, Winfrey and Clinton have long histories finishing among the top 10 women, with Winfrey appearing for the 31st time and Clinton for the 27th. Winfrey has never finished first, but has been second on 14 occasions. Clinton has finished first 22 times — more than any other man or woman — including in 1993 and 1994, 1997 through 2000, and 2002 through 2017. Clinton has finished second on three occasions, third once (this year) and fourth once (in 1992). (Gallup)

Recently, Michelle Obama revealed that she suffered a miscarriage and underwent infertility treatments to conceive her daughters.

Speaking ahead of the release of her memoir “Becoming,” the former first lady said she felt “lost and alone” after miscarrying a baby 20 years ago, the AP reports.

“I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” she told ABC’s Good Morning America. “We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”

Barack Obama earned a reputation as the most pro-abortion president in United States history. Yet, it’s clear from the new details of their lives that he and his wife knew babies in the womb are valuable. Otherwise, why would they mourn a miscarriage? A miscarriage is the natural, unintentional death of a baby in the womb. An abortion is the intentional killing of an unborn baby. Both are tragedies.
