He’s 97 and has kept a much lower public profile since his last crusade 10 years ago. But in 2015, Billy Graham was again among the 10 men most admired by Americans, the Gallup polling organization reported this week.
The Charlotte, N.C.-born evangelist has now made the Gallup Poll’s Most Admired Men list 59 times. That’s a record and way ahead of anybody else. Graham’s first appearance on the list came in 1955.
President Barack Obama was the most admired man in 2015, for the seventh consecutive year.
Graham’s column is published Monday-Saturday in The Star.
