King Harald was voted the most admired man in Norway :
I find this results quite surprising as not even Haakon is in the Top 10.
I have to say that this is such a random list that I imagine people voting were given a choice of X number of people - so probably no write-ins. If you asked Americans who was most admired, I doubt they would include a king a queen or a Norwegian chess champion! So I would take it with a grain of salt. I'll bet the Queen, MM and even ML weren't even choices on the list to choose from.
Well, according to YouGov :
"HOW WE DID IT –
In December YouGov gathered open-ended nominations from panellists across 34 countries, asking them simply: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?” These nominations were then used to compile a list of the 25 men and 25 women who received the most nominations and were nominated in at least 2 countries. An additional 5 popular local figures were added to the lists for individual countries.
In January, 23 of the 34 countries were polled again in representative* surveys, where respondents were asked two questions: “who do you truly admire?”, where they could make multiple selections, and “who do you MOST admire?”, where they could pick only one. These two numbers were then combined into the score (displayed to the right of each name above.)
By asking respondents those two questions, we can understand both the breadth (i.e. global reach) and the intensity of a person's support, which we regard as both important measures.
Altogether, we polled in countries that constitute nearly two-thirds of the world's population. However, some parts of the world were better represented than others, so we weighted up the impact certain countries had on the final scores and weighted down others so the global scores more accurately reflect the breakdown of sentiment in the world overall. "
So the nomination were open and that means that even if Haakon, MM, the Queen or ML were choose by Nowegians at the first round of vote , either they were part of the 5 popular local figures ( because I doubt they were nominated in at least 2 countriesà and they weren't choose in the 2nd round by Norwegians or they didn't even make it to the 2nd Round...
At least, that's what I understand for the YouGov site , maybe I'm wrong ?
