 Poll shows Americans would rather dine with Blake Shelton, Adam Levine than the Obamas this Thanksgiving


When it comes to what holiday meal is the best of the year, there's no contest! 65 percent of Americans agree that Thanksgiving celebrations have the best food, according to a recent poll.

While respondents have strong traditional ideas about the foods and activities associated with the holiday, they were a little more divided on other, more hot-button issues. 46 percent of Americans are willing to battle crowds for good deals on Black Friday, but more than three-quarters of respondents agree that retailers should be closed on Thanksgiving.

On a more amusing note, NBC's The Voice judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton beat out the First Family for who Americans would most like to dine with on Thanksgiving, by only a one percent margin.

The data for this infographic was compiled by KRC Research and based on the responses of 500 Americans.

I like Adam and Blake. If I were 30 years younger, I wouldn't mind Blake singing to me, and just hanging out with Adam. He was recently named the most sexy or good looking man in the world (I forget which).

Actually, Adam reminds me of my step-grandson. They look a lot alike and have the same mannerisms.

I would have dined with anyone before I'd eat with Hooch and Mooch.

Blake makes me wish I WAS 30 years younger ~LOL~  I have a thing for Gemini men.

Geminis are quite dangerous, regardless of gender!
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

At least I would hope Blake or Adam would not try to force me to buy health insurance, as the Obamas so famously suggested last week.

I've never watched "The Voice" and know nothing about their individual music careers, and still would rather dine with Blake and Adam. Or their dogs. Or grandmothers. Or cleaning ladies. Or pool boys.

Many of them (maybe most) are young people. He lost that loving feeling.

My husband was a Gemini.......  and many of our friends - Gemini.   A Gemini can charm the birds out of the trees.

I was born 1 day or 2 day short, depending up which chart you use.  My mother thinks I'm very Taurean.  My stepmother says I'm Gemini.  I think I'm just a very stubborn schizophrenic. 
I dated a few Geminis.  It was always like there were 4 people at the dinner table.

My sister and several friends are Taurus.. you are definitely more Taurus than Gemini (don't take it as an insult not meant that way)...
