PPP: Voters back the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

About 49 percent of U.S. voters are rooting for the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, which takes place on Sunday.

The survey by Public Policy Polling found 22 percent supporting the Seattle Seahawks and 29 percent with no opinion — at least maybe until the first quarter.

The PPP poll found Americans united in their support for the Broncos: Liberals, conservatives, men, women, whites, African Americans, Democrats, Republicans, Latinos, and voters young and old are cheering for Denver.

The survey also found that 64 percent of Americans have a positive opinion of Broncos star Peyton Manning to just 8 percent who see him unfavorably.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a favorability rating of 34 percent, but more people — 58 percent — don’t have an opinion of him.

The same survey found:

• Barack Obama’s approval rating is 41 percent, matching his all time low in the polling.

• 53 percent of voters disapprove of the president.

• Republicans have moved into a slight lead on the generic Congressional midterm ballot at 42/40.

• 38 percent of voters support the Affordable Care Act overall, and 52 percent oppose the law.

• 62 percent think the big roll out of the ACA was unsuccessful.

• 55 percent of voters support increasing the minimum wage to $10 an hour, including 85 percent of Democrats and 28 percent of Republicans.

• 63 percent of voters think long-term unemployment benefits should be continued.

• Mitt Romney’s favorability rating has dropped since the 2012 election to 39 percent.

• Only 22 percent of voters see Donald Trump favorably.
