The exact fate of The Daily Show may still be up in the air, but America has spoken about what they'd like to see happen. According to a new study, the people want Tina Fey.

In a national poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, 19% of voters said Fey is their top choice to replace Jon Stewart. In that same poll, 16% said they'd like to see Dennis Miller, 8% for John Oliver, 7% for Brian Williams and Craig Ferguson each, and 5% for Chelsea Handler. 

Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,286 registered voters in the United States. It may seem odd to ask only a voting pool about television, but the Daily Show  could have some sway in the 2016 election.  So, learning what registered voters would like to see feels relevant.

Fey emerged as the most preferred candidate. However, there was a variation when it came to gender breakdowns. Women chose Fey 23-12%, while men chose Miller 21-15%. Voters aged 18 to 34 go 27% for Fey. 

Long story short: Offer Fey the job.
