A recent survey of American voters revealed that everyone hates Justin Bieber, but would probably vote for Justin Timberlake for president. North Carolina’s Public Policy Polling surveyed 571 voters earlier this week and found that, while most people like Taylor Swift, Adele, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake, they don’t much care for Chris Brown, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, and Rihanna. Bieber was the only artist PPP asked about that Democrats, Republicans, and independents all universally despised—and by a pretty wide margin at that.
PPP also asked respondents to pick between eight different potential presidential candidates: Adele, Bieber, Beyonce, Brown, Jay-Z, Timberlake, Gaga, or Rihanna. Unsurprisingly, only two percent of respondents picked Barbados resident Rihanna to lead the United States, but a whopping 34 percent chose Timberlake. Non-American singer Adele came in second with 19 percent to beat out Beyoncé, who came in third with 14 percent. Her husband Jay-Z drew a mere nine percent.
Still, despite his de facto majority lead, most respondents weren’t really all that sold on Timberlake being president either. Asked the inane question, “How should Justin Timberlake spend most of his time?” a full 31 percent said he should just play golf. Forty percent of people said he should continue making music, while another seven percent said he should try and get ‘N Sync back together, as if that were something that wouldn't take him much time or effort at all.
The survey also asked these totally uninformed respondents to pick their favorite iteration of Snoop Dogg’s name, because sure, they’d probably have opinions about that. "Snoop Dogg" was the clear winner at 56 percent, beating out "Snoop Doggy Dogg" and "Snoop Lion." ("Snoop Diggity Dog" was not an option.)
Finally, the rather all-over-the-place survey determined that its respondents tended to favor country and classical music over R&B, dubstep, and rap. Only 17 percent of respondents said they’d ever been to “the club,” compared to the 75 percent who said they hadn’t, while there was another eight percent of people who probably weren’t even sure what "the club" was. Not surprisingly given the answers, 60 percent of those surveyed were 46 years of age or older.
