As America sets to elect our country’s next president, there are plenty of other places to cast a vote today.
ESPN’s SportsNation asked fans who they would vote for if there was an election for the “President of American pro team sports?”
The majority of voters chose Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning over the other four candidates, Derek Jeter, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Tom Brady. The only states not to side with Manning, who received 53% of the 92,568 votes cast were Connecticut, which went with Jeter, and Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, which all chose Tom Brady.
As people have voting on their minds, ESPN has issued another poll, asking fans to weigh in on who has had the better comeback season, Manning or Vikings RB Adrian Peterson. To share your thoughts, use the hashtag #APvsPeyton.
