Tom Brady had the sniffles at his press conference in Foxboro, Mass. Tuesday, but he shouldn’t expect much sympathy from the rest of America.

According to the third annual NFL poll done by Public Policy Polling, the Patriots quarterback is the most hated QB in the nation. And get this: the “most hated” list includes eternal free agent Tim Tebow. Here’s the list:

Least favorite QBs
1. Tom Brady 18 percent
2. Tim Tebow 12 percent
3. Robert Griffin III 11 percent
4. Eli Manning 7 percent
5. Peyton Manning 5 percent
5. Drew Brees 5 percent
7. Cam Newton 4 percent
8. Aaron Rodgers 3 percent
8. Russell Wilson 3 percent

The best part about this poll is that it splits things up depending on whether or not voters are Democrats or Republicans. For instance, would you have guessed that just 5 percent of people who voted for Mitt Romney in the last election believe that the Washington Redskins should change their name? Or that just 6 percent of people who call themselves “Very Conservative” view Tebow unfavorably?

Wonders never cease.
