Fresh off her November election, a new Gallup Poll released today revealed Kamala Harris has already become the second most admired women in the United States.
She trails only Michelle Obama who took the top spot for the third year in a row, reports The Hill.
The daughter of an Indian woman and Jamaican father quickly rose to prominence after she dropped out of her presidential run and later accepted the number two spot on the Democratic ticket.
Harris in November became the first women ever elected to the second highest office in the country. She also is the first Asian American and Black person elected as Vice President.
According to the American Bazaar, 10% of those polled selected Obama followed by six% who named Harris and 4% who named Melania Trump. Interestingly, Melania has never been voted number one in this poll.
Oprah Winfrey placed fourth with 3% meaning three of the top four spots went to women of color.
Gallup surveyed 1018 adults from December 1 – 17. The poll has a margin of error of four percentage points.
