Poll: Americans Hate Justin Bieber

Taking a break from presidential oddsmaking, Public Policy Polling released the results of a different, equally important survey: How do Americans feel about Justin Bieber? In a music-oriented poll, the petulant pop star was among the artists rated unfavorably by 50 percent or more of respondents. (Chris Brown and Lady Gaga suffered the same fate.) Taylor Swift, Adele, Beyoncé, and Justin Timberlake were among the most liked, with Timberlake finishing first among artists Americans would most like to see as president. Among the poll's other interesting findings: 75 percent of Americans have not been to "the club," and 68 percent dislike rap.
