In a NationalToday.com survey of 2000 Americans, 82% of respondents express their love for cheeseburgers. (We’re assuming the remaining 18% are lactose intolerant—what else could it be?)

7 in 10 Americans say American cheese is their favorite cheeseburger topping.

Did growing up on McDonalds have anything to do with this? Something to ponder.
