People Who Participate in Telephone Polls Do Not Like Justin Bieber, Clubs

Recording Artist Justin Bieber performs onstage during 93.3 FLZ's Jingle Ball 2012 at Tampa Bay Times Forum on December 9, 2012 in Tampa, Florida.

A recent survey of people who will actually answer their phones and participate in an automated music poll (so: not teenagers) found that Justin Bieber is not very popular off the Internet, either. Democrats, Republicans, and even Independents do not like him (otherwise they just can't agree, even on a favorite Beatle.) Also unpopular: Rap, Lady Gaga, going to the club, and admitting to illegal downloading (86% said they had not). Then there is this sentence: "In the wake of his recent new album, voters encourage Justin Timberlake to continue spending the majority of his time making music (40%), rather than acting (22%), reuniting 'N Sync (7%) or playing golf (31%)."  Playing golf was close, though.
