Americans Would Rather Share Thanksgiving Dinner with Tim Tebow than Barack Obama

America always loves the underdog and Tim Tebow is the crappy backup quarterback that people just can’t get enough of. It defies all logic, but the numbers support it.

According to a recent Nielsen poll, Tebow is the person most Americans wish they could invite to Thanksgiving dinner. Twenty-three percent of respondents said they would like to share their turkey with the New York Jet.

It is because he would deliver a kick-ass grace? It can’t be because of his potato-passing skills — Tebow’s the worst passer in the NFL.

Regardless of the poll numbers, Tebow likely won’t be attending any Thanksgiving celebrations today — not even with his own family. His New York Jets host the New England Patriots in East Rutherford, NJ at 8 p.m. ET tonight.

Tebow beat out some pretty impressive competition to take top spot in the poll, including Barack Obama. Surprisingly, even though the nation just voted Obama back into office, only five percent of respondents said they would like to invite Obama over for Thanksgiving dinner. Is it just that he’s too intimidating? Are people worried he’ll pardon the turkey after its already been cooked and there’ll be nothing to eat?

Obama couldn’t even beat out Lady Gaga and Big Bird in the poll. More people would like to cut a piece of pumpkin pie for a giant, fictional, anthropomorphic bird than the leader of the free world.
