You have to admire her for all the racist remarks about her looks she has to endure and still have a good personality. Some serious sick people out there.

We all know how accurate polls are.

I'm sure Ms. Barry appreciates your attempt to spread the fake news though.

Classy, matter of opinion. Faithful wife, do we really know? Is this really a thing to be admired if true? Many women, some of whom are reviled and hated, were loyal and faithful wives.
She went inactive as she wasn't using it at that time. I did that a few times when I was a Realtor.

If Mrs. Obama wants to practice again, she can do so at any time.

But nothing...Mrs. Obama graduated from Harvard Law and then went to Sidney Austin. So yes, she is extreme accomplished.

While polls like these are really more entertainment than anything else, it was fascinating looking at the results by country.

Is that enough for you?

A little research will reveal that she did not grow up in poverty!
You have NO idea about the inner workings of her marriage....none! It may be great....it may not be...only they know!
Quite frankly after reading her college thesis I came away less than impressed.

Half the US probably does.

The other half probably votes her as the 2nd least admired. (to put it nicely)

Take a poll in Texas and check out the results.

Not poverty.

I agree with you that she is most deserving of this accolade. But let's keep the facts straight.
