A recent Public Policy Polling survey found Jesus is the second most popular person in America, just behind Abraham Lincoln, the Christian Post reports. The survey, which was taken to see if anyone in history could beat the level of favorability of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (89 percent), showed that 91 percent of Americans view Lincoln favorably, with Jesus coming in at 90 percent. Respondents were also asked to rate themselves, and 93 percent said they viewed themselves positively. Other high-ranking figures were George Washington (86 percent), Mother Teresa (83 percent) and Martin Luther King Jr. (74 percent). Also, notably, all Republicans polled had a favorable view of Jesus.
