A new survey from Public Policy Polling (PPP) finds that Americans are united in their dislike for teenage pop-singer, Justin Bieber.
The poll, which surveyed 571 voters nationwide, found that just 20 percent of respondents have a favorable view of Justin Bieber, while 54 percent view him unfavorably.
PPP points out that Bieber was the only artist whose unfavorability rating stretched across party lines.
Fifty-four percent of Democrats, fifty-two percent of Republicans, and fifty-six percent of Independents all reported negative views of the teen "sensation."
The poll found that 53 percent of respondents have a favorable view of Taylor Swift, 54 percent for Adele, 51 percent for Beyonce and 52 percent for Justin Timberlake.
Fifty-seven percent have a negative view of Chris Brown, 50 percent for Lady Gaga and 44 percent for Jay-Z.
When asked who they would most like to see as president among a sample of singers, respondents said:
Justin Timberlake, 34%
Adele, 19% (who, of course, being English, is not eligible for the position ~JMF)
Lady Gaga, 9%
Bieber, 8% (again, Bieber is Canadian and ineligible ~JMF)
Chris Brown, 5%
(And yes, some-- if not most-- are not yet 35... ~JMF)
