WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Louisiana voters would by “happy, happy, happy” not to see one of the “Duck Dynasty” stars run for Congress.

Following reports that some GOP leaders would like Willie Robertson to run for the seat of retiring Rep. Rodney Alexander, a poll conducted by Conservative Intelligence Briefing found that 41 percent of voters believe he should not run. Only 26 percent believed he should run for Congress while another 33 percent were not sure.

The poll also found that the Duck Commander CEO is not even the most popular character on the hit reality show on A&E. Twenty-five percent of those polled say Uncle Si is there favorite Robertson family member, followed by Willie at 24 percent. Phil Robertson, Miss Kay and Jase Robertson rounded out the top five.

Rumor about a potential Willie Robertson run spread last week after a report in the Washington Examiner stated that GOP officials were open to having the reality star and multi-millionaire CEO run for Congress.

“My boys want to run Willie Robertson for the seat,” an advisor to the House GOP leadership told the Examiner.

Robertson, though, quickly shot it down.

“I’m kind of busy right now. I got a lot going on,” he told Fox News.

The “Duck Dynasty” season premiere was watched by 11.8 million viewers last week, making it the most-watched nonfiction series telecast in the history of cable television.

The Robertsons operate their multi-million dollar Duck Commander business from West Monroe, La.
