The 37-year-old singer, born Beyoncé Knowles, has a net rating of 63 percent favorable among Democrats polled, compared to -3 among Republicans. That 66-point gap was the biggest between the two political parties of any entertainer on the list.

Fox News’s Sean Hannity took the runner-up spot on the list, with a 28 percent net favorability rating for the GOP and -37 among Democrats.

Beyoncé’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, also appeared in the top 10 on the list, along with other famous faces, including Rihanna and ardent Clinton supporter George Clooney.

Of the survey’s 25 most divisive celebrities, only two, Hannity and Limbaugh, polled higher among Republicans than Democrats.

The survey polled 6,609 adults in the United States last month about a variety of famous names, including rappers Drake and Nas, country music singers Kenny Chesney and Garth Brooks, comedian Dave Chappelle, and Lady Gaga, among others. The poll has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
