Pope tops NCR poll

The Nobel Prize committee didn’t select Pope Francis for the peace prize this year (Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi got that honor), but he would have won -- by a large margin-- if NCRonline readers would have been consulted.


I asked readers to take a poll yesterday answering the question: Whom do you want to be selected for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014? Here’s the results:

Pope Francis             118

Malala Yousafzai         59
Ban Ki-Moon                 4
Snowden        21
Responses Other (please specify)

              Health workers fighting Ebola -- 1
We don’t have peace, there should be no prize 3
Silly suggestions 4
