Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the 10th-most-admired person in the United States, according to the “World’s Most Admired 2016” YouGov poll that gauged the popularity of famous people in 30 different countries.
President Barack Obama topped the chart, Pope Francis came in second, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders was sixth, and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump ranked eighth.
Netanyahu ranked higher than former president George W. Bush, actor Johnny Depp, and former president Bill Clinton, who came in 11th, 12th, and 13th, respectively.
The poll was conducted using “open-ended nominations from panelists across 30 countries,” YouGov said.
