    A recent poll found more Pennsylvanians find the Phillie Phanatic to be qualified for president than presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump. (Published Thursday, June 9, 2016)

    A recent poll released by Public Policy Polling shows that 46 percent of Pennsylvanians polled believe the Phillie Phanatic is more qualified to be president of the United States than Donald Trump.

    Trump received 40 percent of the vote while 14 percent of the people surveyed were "not sure."

    In case you were unfamiliar, the Phillie Phanatic is the fluffy green mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies who, if you want to get specific about it, was born in the Galapagos Islands and therefore isn't even eligible to be President of the United States. Sad!

    He also doesn't speak, which if we're being honest, could be a tactic Trump could benefit from employing. 

    As for the specifics of the survey, you can check those out here: "Public Policy Polling surveyed 1,106 registered voters from June 3rd to 5th. The margin of error is +/- 3.0 percent. 80 percent of participants, selected through a list based sample, responded via the phone, while 20 percent of respondents who did not have landlines conducted the survey over the internet through an opt-in Internet panel."
