Darth Vader has Higher Favorability Rating than Hillary Clinton or Obama

And if you don’t like Darth Vader, you’re a racist.
FiveThirtyEight, the pointless media spinoff site that isn’t Vox (but is also 39% less anti-Semitic than Vox), asked Americans for their favorability  ratings of Star Wars characters. USA Today and the Washington Post matched them against the favorability ratings of politicians.
Darth Vader has a 58 favorable rating to a 30 percent unfavorable rating. That’s compared to a 49 percent favorable and 45 percent unfavorable rating for Hillary Clinton.
While this means that Americans think more highly of Darth Vader than Hillary Clinton.
Hillary still comes out ahead of Emperor Palpatine with a 31 to 24 favorable to unfavorable. The Emperor however may be suffering from a lack of name recognition with 19 percent unfamiliar and 26 percent neutral. His favorable to unfavorable split is still better than Hillary’s.
Obama is currently running at  51 percent unfavorable to 46 percent favorable, putting him below Hillary Clinton and Darth Vader. As evil overlords go, he’s proven to be disappointing even to many of those who voted for him.
