The power of the Dark Side: Darth Vader more popular than White House hopefuls

Darth Vader is more popular than President Barack Obama, Congress and every single 2016 presidential hopeful as of Wednesday. The results of a comparison of the net favorability ratings of “Star Wars” characters and U.S. political figures, published in The Washington Post, suggest Americans would choose the fictional evil villain as president over Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Andrew Cuomo, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Martin O’Malley, Jeb Bush, Joe Biden, Rick Santorum, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell and, of course, Congress—in that order.
