Michelle Obama’s popularity is apparently bigger now than ever.

According to a poll conducted by YouGov, the former first lady ousted actress Angelina Jolie to become the most admired woman in the world.

Jolie fell to third place while television personality Oprah Winfrey was second this year.

Current first lady Melania Trump made the list at No. 19.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates remains the world’s most admired man. President Trump was No. 14, just ahead of Pope Francis.

YouGov said more than 42,000 people were interviewed in 41 countries to compile the list.
