Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman of 2014, a new poll has found.

According to a Gallup’s annual list of most admired public figures, conducted Dec. 8-11 of 805 adults, 12 percent of people named her. She was the only person to reach double digits on the women’s list, and it’s the 19th time in the poll’s history that she has come in first.

Clinton is “easily the most [admired] of any woman in Gallup’s history of asking the most admired question, six more times than Eleanor Roosevelt,” Gallup said.

Oprah Winfrey came second with 8 percent, while Nobel Peace Prize-winning Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai got 5 percent.

A number of other women in the political arena also made the list including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice with 4 percent, Michelle Obama with 3 percent, and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin with 2 percent.

Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is often floated as a possible 2016 presidential contender, attracted 1 percent. And former First Lady Laura Bush also got 1 percent.
