Poll: Obama More Popular Than Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Check out this story over at Foxnews.com:

Poll: Obama More Popular Than Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

From the article:

Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.

Jesus came in second on a list that includes God, Mahtma Gandhi and George Washington.

Other historic or notable figures making the top 10 were Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa.

At the 16th spot in the poll, George Washington, Bill Clinton and Colin Powell tied.

In the first Harris Poll asking this question in 2001, Jesus came in first, followed by the Rev. King, Powell, John F. Kennedy and Mother Teresea.

Obama joked last year at a roast that contrary to rumors, he was not born in a manger but on the planet Krypton. Apparently, Obama is even more popular than Superman, who didn’t make the cut.

I don’t think any comments are necessary; the article speaks for itself.
