A recent  telephone survey shows that 43.3 percent of people believe Tebow’s accomplishments on the field can be attributed to divine intervention, according to the website, Poll Position.

The poll surveyed 1,056 people 756 of whom were familiar with Tebow.  327 of the 756 were recorded as saying divine intervention is partially responsible for Tebow’s success thus far this season.

After Tebow’s exceptional play in the Broncos’ win against the Steelers last Sunday, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh sparked the discussion that a divine being could be responsible his play. Tebow, who has taken the media by storm this season after helping drive the Broncos into the playoffs, is a devout Christian. The poll also found that 46.4 percent of women believed God is a Broncos fan as compared to 40.6 percent of men.
