For the 60th time, the Rev. Billy Graham has been named as one of Gallup’s 10 most admired men in the world, continuing his record number of appearances on the list.
The 98-year-old famed evangelical preacher made it to the No. 5 slot on the top 10 list, according to findings released by Gallup on Wednesday.
Ahead of him, from fourth place to first, was former Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Pope Francis, President-elect Donald Trump, and President Barack Obama
“This year marks the 60th time Graham has finished in the top 10 — a Gallup record. That includes making it into the top 10 every year since 1955, with the exception of the 1962 survey and in 1976, when the question was not asked,” noted Gallup.
“The results are based on a Dec. 7–11 poll. Since 1946, Gallup has asked Americans to name the man, living anywhere in the world, whom they admire most.”
