Give up all hope ye satirists
When Americans were asked whom they admired enough to call their No. 1 hero, the majority of respondents answered "President Obama."
In the new online Harris poll, citizens chose Jesus Christ as No. 2, followed by Martin Luther King.
Others in the top ten, in descending order, were Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa, according to Harris Interactive.
The 2,634 respondents were not provided a list of names. Americans named their heroes spontaneously.
