COUNTRY MUSIC TELEVISION (CMT) thinks a little Country in the OVAL OFFICE wouldn't be a bad idea. According to a recent CMT poll, Country fans think superstar GEORGE STRAIT would be the best pick to be president.
He was followed very closely be REBA McENTIRE, with 23% and 22% respectively. Tied for third place with 14% each is TRACE ADKINS and ALAN JACKSON, BRAD PAISLEY and KENNY CHESNEY come in fourth with 6% each followed by CARRIE UNDERWOOD, KEITH URBAN, ALISON KRAUSS, GARY LeVOX, MARTINA McBRIDE and JENNIFER NETTLES.
It is interesting to note that those voters supporting Sen. JOHN McCAIN in the real presidential election chose STRAIT (26% vs. 20%) and those backing Sen. BARACK OBAMA picked McENTIRE (24% vs. 29%).
