Poll for which of these legends has had the most enduring and influential legacy. Tried to have some diversity in the list and not just musicians

Kind of hard to judge an enduring and influential legacy for someone who's been dead 10 days.

Which of these figures has a federal holiday in their honor?

I think Anna Nicole Smith just missed the cut.

Does that make Jesus the winner with two? Or is Easter an "official" holiday? Probably not since it's a Sunday.

Anna Nicole and Owen Hart were included because they represented a different area of excellence

if you want to include people whose legacy has actually greatly influenced people for good and changed the world, you have to include:

Fred Rogers
Jim Henson
Walt Disney
Steve Jobs

These are the correct answers. Could add Julius Caesar as well.

On the poll list, I would say MLK wins.
