"Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Jesus Christ?" — One of the questions in the many Louisiana polls released last week. Jesus has a 97 percent approval rating among Louisiana voters, according to the Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey of 721 Louisiana voters taken Aug. 16-19 — and only 1 percent of Louisianans said Jesus was not all right with them.
Jesus' showing bests New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and the late Mother Teresa, who both came in at only 81 percent approval. (Thirteen percent of respondents said they disapproved of Brees — clearly Atlanta Falcons fans.)
