Donald Trump and Pope Francis, influential men with opposing views on immigration, climate change, and just about everything that affects everyday people, now have at least one thing in common.

An annual Gallup survey published Monday found Americans consider the papal and the Republican front-runner the second-most admired men in the United States. Each garnered five percent, far less than the 17 percent President Obama received in winning the "most admired man" title for an eighth time.     

Still, Trump's inclusion isn't a shocking as some may believe. He's finished in the Top 10 before - between 1988-1990 and again in 2011 - and carries distant leads in most national GOP presidential polls.

"Trump's surprisingly strong and often controversial presidential campaign has made him a prominent news figure this year, and thus top-of-mind for many Americans," said Gallup managing editor Jeffrey Jones in a survey summary.

Also making the cut were Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Republican contender Ben Carson, the Dalai Lama, and former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, who holds the record for most times deemed the "most admired woman," finished atop the women's list again this year, 20th time doing so.

"Since 1993, the year she was first named most admired woman, Clinton has stayed in the news as first lady, U.S. senator, secretary of state and a two-time presidential candidate," Jones said.

The former Secretary of State received 13 percent of the votes, followed by 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai with five percent. Oprah Winfrey and First Lady Michelle Obama each finished with 4 percent, respectively.

Other notable women listed are former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, Queen Elizabeth II, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Myanmar politician Aung San Suu Kyi.

To complete the survey, a random sample of 824 adults aged 18 and older was taken between Dec. 2-6.
