According to YouGov’s website, December last year they gathered open-minded nominations from panellist across 41 countries by asking them: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?”
From these, they have compiled list of 20 men and women who have received the most nominations. From March to June, the company “used these lists to poll each of the 41 countries asking two questions: “who do you truly admire?”, where respondents could make multiple selections, and “who do you MOST admire?”, where they could only pick one.”
“By asking respondents two questions, we can understand both the breadth (i.e. global reach) and the intensity of a person’s support.”
YouGov also said that all surveys were conducted online.
Do you agree with the result of the poll?
