Aaron Rodgers Has Higher Approval Rating In WI Than Mother Theresa, George Washington, MLK And More

Thursday November 17th, 2011

Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers has an 89% approval rating among voters in the state of Wisconsin, according to Public Policy Polling (PPP).

PPP was so surprised with that finding that they decided to find what the approval rating was for other famous people in a national poll. According to their results, Aaron Rodgers was more popular in Wisconsin than George Washington, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Santa Claus, Mahatma Ghandi, Nelson Mandela and Steve Jobs were on a national level.

Beating out Rodgers on a national level were just two people, Abraham Lincoln and Jesus Christ. According to the poll, Americans had a 91% approval rating for Lincoln, and a 90% approval rating for Jesus.
