LeBron James has been voted the Most Popular Athlete for the first time in his illustrious career. According to a Harris Poll conducted last month, which sampled 2,241 people in the U.S, James beat out Michael Jordan who reigned supreme from 1993-2005. 

After his decision in 2011, LeBron fell out of the top-10 altogether. Among the 18-36 and 49-67 demographic, James was the most popular while Jordan took the 37-48 demographic. 

After LeBron and Jordan it was Derek Jeter, Peyton Manning, and Kobe Bryant tied with Dale Earnhardt Jr to round out the top-5. 'Bron has certainly come a long way from his days as the villain in Miami, and he will continue to trend up now that he is back in Northeast Ohio.
