Another Record!! Drew Brees - Most Popular Person Ever Polled!

Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm out of North Carolina, conducted a poll this week in advance of Saturday's Louisiana Primary.

The poll's primary focus was on politics, but likely GOP voters were also asked some other topical questions about personalities and places in the state.

Drew Brees broke the pollsters' all-time record for popularity, with a 94% favorable rating.

Brees is the most popular figure PPP has ever asked about on a poll, with only one percent rating him unfavorably.

The only nearly comparable figure was a national poll PPP did in November in which Abraham Lincoln had a 91% favorable rating, and that was the previous record.

Public Policy Polling has been conducting polls, nationwide, since 2001.

Here are some other findings from PPP:

Only 15% of primary voters think that the New Orleans Saints' bounty program was appropriate to 70% who think it was excessive. And, they're not holding Sean Payton accountable. 74% of voters have a favorable opinion of the head coach, to just 11% with a negative one. Only 19% agree with Payton's one year suspension, while 66% think the punishment is unfair. Only 12% have a positive view of departed defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, while 51% view him negatively.

78% of primary voters in the state identified themselves as LSU fans. But, coach Les Miles has only a 49% approval rating to 36% who disapprove.

Baton Rouge was viewed the most favorably of Louisiana's major cities by those polled, with Shreveport ranked second. Statewide, only 39% of Republican primary voters expressed a favorable view of New Orleans, with 51% unfavorable.
