Former First Lady Michelle Obama has beaten failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s 17-year reign as the “most admired” woman in Gallup’s annual poll. Previously, Mrs. Obama finished second to Clinton three times in the poll.Americans’ admiration for Clinton crashed so hard this year that she did not even finish second place after Mrs. Obama, instead tying with First Lady Melania Trump, whom the establishment media has relentlessly attacked. “The year 2018 brought about a change at the top of Gallup’s Most Admired Woman list for the first time in 17 years, with Hillary Clinton falling back now that she has more fully retreated to private life after a long career as first lady, U.S. senator, secretary of state and two-time presidential candidate,” Gallup pollsters note. “Michelle Obama stepped into that void as she has authored a best-selling autobiography and is promoting it with a major tour of large U.S. … [Read more...] about Gallup: Michelle Obama Beats Hillary Clinton as ‘Most Admired’ Woman
More than 750 million people want to migrate to another country permanently, according to Gallup research published Monday, as 150 world leaders sign up to the controversial UN global compact which critics say makes migration a human right. The Gallup World Poll survey, which interviewed 453,122 adults in 152 countries between 2015 and 2017, found that 15 per cent of the world’s adult population would like to move to another country if they had the chance.Noting this proportion had risen from 13 per cent between 2010 and 2012, and 14 per cent between 2013 and 2016, the pollster commented that rising populism and a backlash to mass immigration seen in many Western electorates has apparently not deterred would-be migrants from wanting to seek a better standard of living elsewhere. Regionally, the desire to migrate was found to be highest in sub-Saharan Africa, where 33 per cent of adults wanted to migrate permanently, followed by Latin America and the Caribbean (27 per cent), … [Read more...] about Gallup: More Than 750 Million People Globally Now Wanting to Migrate

Five million poor Central Americans want to migrate into the United States’ communities and workplaces, according to a report by Gallup. The caravans of economic migrants moving northwards to the U.S. border “actually represent a relatively small fragment of a much larger group of people in their own region — and around the world — who say they would like to move to the U.S. if they could,” said Gallup.The five million number is one-in-three adults in Central America, the survey firm said. But average birth rate and family size in Central America are roughly twice as large as in the United States, so the migration of 5 million could lead to the birth of at least 5 million additional people after the migrants get jobs in the United States. The estimate was posted by Gallup as President Donald Trump’s lawyers try to fend off lawsuits against his November plan to curb the growing use of asylum claims by economic migrants from Central … [Read more...] about Gallup: Five Million Central Americans Want to Join Caravans to the U.S.
