Johnny Manziel’s popularity takes a plunge

Johnny Manziel also known as “Johnny Football”, has nearly seen a 50 percent decrease in popularity with the public over the past eight months.

According to a survey taken by E-Score earlier this week, only 49 percent of respondents found Manziel fascinating. His numbers were greatly lower than the 87 percent average of 1,400 athletes who participated in the survey. Just after Manziel won the Heisman trophy back in January 2013, 97 percent of the surveyors found Johnny Football appealing. Quite a decrease huh? The survey also showed that his awareness increased by 67 percent over the past 8 months.

The surveyors were asked to rate Manziel from a list of attributes. The results were- rude, 27 percent; overexposed, 43 percent; and insincere, 19 percent. That is a huge increase from the last survey that was taken with the same attributes. (Rude, 2 percent; overexposed, 5 percent; insincere, 5 percent).

It’s a no-brainier that Manziel’s appearance has taken a huge plunge from his off the field problems. Something else I found that was interesting is that 43 percent said he is “overexposed.” I believe this will keep Manziel from winning another Heisman trophy. People are just getting annoyed with hearing Maniel’s name everywhere, especially Charles Barkley who absolutely can’t stand Manziel.
