While the media obsess about the Hollywood red carpet and the fashion runway, three Republican women in the halls of government are leaving their mark on a generation of young men and women.
In a recent Gallup poll reported by the Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson, Brit royalty Kate Middleton, who is ubiquitous in the English tabloids, and platinum recording artist Beyonce Knowles, were beat out by a handful of Republican ladies for the “most admired women” in the world.
Here is Gallup’s list, including the Most Admired Man and Most Admired Woman:
As can be seen above, Barack Obama narrowly edged out Donald Trump after the current president’s first year in office: 17% to 14% of respondents.
While Hillary Clinton stayed atop the standings, she recently took a hit, Gallup pointed out.
The 9% who name Clinton is the lowest percentage she has received since 2002, when 7% named her in another close first-place finish. Clinton won the title this year in the same poll she registered a personal low favorable rating. This indicates she remains top of mind for enough people who like her to be named more than any other woman in response to the open-ended question, finishing ahead of some women who may be better liked overall but are not as prominent in people’s minds.
On the rise are three Republican ladies, who join former First Lady Michelle Obama on the list.
These women not only beat out Beyonce and Kate Middleton, they have become “divas” in the slang sense, as laid out in the Urban dictionary:
“A person who exudes great style and personality with confidence and expresses their own style and not letting others influence who they are or want to be.”
That definitely suits all three of these bright and influential women to the letter.
The former Stanford Provost, and by the way, first African-American female Secretary of State, who served under former President George W. Bush, has exuded class and intelligence both in office and outside of it.
The current First Lady of the United States has won over the American people with her elegance and charm, despite a news media that has been excessively critical at times. Combining the kind of intelligence only seen with a polyglot who speaks five languages, the Slovenian immigrant has shown that she has brains to go with her fashion model background. She is currently viewed as favorable by a majority of Americans, according to a recent Gallup poll.
Nikki Haley’s fierce and unrelenting demeanor, combined with a pronounced sense of compassion, have catapulted her to the forefront of American politics. Her willingness to take principled stances in the face of overwhelming opposition at the UN, has made the ambassador a political force to watch. There is even a budding movement to see Nikki Haley become the next President of the United States.
It’s refreshing to see great political leaders at the top of influencers on the culture and on America’s young people, instead of just pop icons. There’s hope for America’s future, after all.
