A new survey from Public Policy Polling (PPP) finds that Americans are united in their dislike for teenage pop-singer, Justin Bieber.

The poll, which surveyed 571 voters nationwide, found that just 20 percent of respondents have a favorable view of Justin Bieber, while 54 percent view him unfavorably.

PPP points out that Bieber was the only artist whose unfavorability rating stretched across party lines.

Fifty-four percent of Democrats, fifty-two percent of Republicans, and fifty-six percent of Independents all reported negative views of the teen "sensation."

The poll found that 53 percent of respondents have a favorable view of Taylor Swift, 54 percent for Adele, 51 percent for Beyonce and 52 percent for Justin Timberlake.

Fifty-seven percent have a negative view of Chris Brown, 50 percent for Lady Gaga and 44 percent for Jay-Z.

When asked who they would most like to see as president among a sample of singers, respondents said:

  • Justin Timberlake, 34%
  • Adele, 19%
  • Beyonce, 14%
  • Jay-Z, 9%
  • Lady Gaga, 9%
  • Bieber, 8%
  • Chris Brown, 5%
