Tina Fey was the Secretariat-sized winner, according to social media, garnering a whopping 32.7% of votes. [And yes, Secretariat also got a vote.]  The next closest were her good friend Amy Poehler and Stephen Colbert, with just under 11% each.

Will these votes influence CBS’ decision? We’ll have to wait and see, but we think Tina Fey would be an amazing choice.
