What Quarterback Would Make the Best President? – Survey of the Day
This weekend we learned that Mitt Romney will almost certainly be running against Barack Obama for President this fall, and that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has cemented his status as an elite quarterback by winning his second Super Bowl. Now imagine a crazy scenerio in which only QBs can run for President.
That’s what the folks at Reuters/Ipsos did, and their recent survey of 2,475 adults asked which NFL playoff quarterback they would choose for president of the United States in the coming election.
Denver Broncos’ QB Tim Tebow came in first place, snagging almost 30 percent of the total vote. Eli Manning finished runner up, just edging Tom Brady and Drew Brees, who finished third and fourth respectively.
One caveat though: This poll was taken right before the Super Bowl, and now that Eli has snagged his second Super Bowl MVP, it stands to reason he could best Tebow for the White House. He’d certainly win New York’s vote.
