60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll: May Edition

Check out the results and weigh in!

Welcome to the 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll for May. May is known for an abundance of flowering trees and plants. It is also a month for races, with the first two legs of horse racing's Triple Crown taking place. First up is America's most famous "run for the roses," the Kentucky Derby which is run at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville. Two weeks later is the Preakness, which takes place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Later in the month, it's a different kind of horse power, when the "Indy 500" roars around the track. Two other important days occur in May. The first is Mother's Day, when mothers are honored for the wonderful things that they do every day. And finally there is Memorial Day, marked by graveside services and visits, barbecues, family reunions and recreational activities of all kinds. It is a great American tradition. And now the results of this month's poll...

People are often advised to avoid discussing religion or politics in polite company, but apparently that does not extend to tweeting. President Obama (31 percent) is the public figure most Americans would follow on Twitter. Next up are two spiritual leaders, the Dalai Lama (15 percent) and Pope Benedict (10 percent). Strange bedfellows, Justice Stephen Breyer and Ashton Kutcher each got seven percent and finally 22 percent think tweeting is for the birds.
