Is God A Tebow Fan?

Some have made the joke that evangelical Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow gets a little help from above when he takes the field on Sundays. But a recent poll shows that there are plenty of people out there who truly believe it. According to a survey by the website, 43.3% of people believe Tebow’s accomplishments on the field can be attributed to divine intervention. The poll surveyed 1,056 people, and of the 756 who said they were familiar with Tebow, roughly 327 of them said they believe God plays a role in the second-year NFL quarterback’s success.  Only 42.3% of those familiar with Tebow said divine intervention does not play a role in Tebow’s success (14.4% had no opinion), meaning there are more respondents who do believe Tebow is receiving a little extra help than there are who don’t. The poll also found that women were more likely than men to believe that God is a Broncos fan.
