It's no mystery that public opinion varies on Tim Tebow, but now it's official.

Nestled within a 35-question phone survey, pieced together by Public Policy Polling to track the Republican presidential campaign among likely GOP voters in Iowa, was this glowing gem:

“Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Tim Tebow?"

Massive can of worms unleashed over Iowa.

Tebow received an almost-down-the-middle 48 percent “favorable" rating from the 171 people who answered the question. Thirteen percent cast an "unfavorable" vote, and 40 percent labeled themselves as "unsure."

No word on if that 13 percent are Raiders fans on the lam, or just generally disgruntled Iowans.
