In the "Most Admired Man" category, former President George W. Bush was mentioned by 3 percent of respondents, while former President Bill Clinton, Rev. Billy Graham and Warren Buffett were mentioned by 2 percent of respondents each.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump placed sixth among men, with 1 percent naming him, after last being on the list in 1990.
