The Monday Poll: YA Lit Characters for President!

The White House in 1846 - public domain image accessed at Wikimedia Commons Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we rounded out our Valentine’s Day polls by asking which romantic outcome from YA lit you’d like to change. Apparently freshly baked bread doesn’t win many hearts around here, because Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy came in first with 34% of the vote. The Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer followed closely with 32% of the vote, so Team Jacob is clearly still going strong. Finally, the Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray came in third with 16% of  the vote.  (Team No Tree?)  You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted and commented last week!

This week, we’re on to the next holiday– the United States is celebrating Presidents’ Day, so we want to know: which YA lit character would you vote into the Oval Office?  Your choice could be based on leadership ability, a commanding presence, admirable values, or sheer charisma. Actual qualifications don’t matter, since this is just for fun– so go nuts! Vote in the poll below, and feel free to campaign for your favorite in the comments.
