Poll: People want Trump to do their taxes

A Web site said its latest survey found 33 percent of respondents chose entrepreneur Donald Trump as the celebrity they would most like to do their taxes.

WalletPop.com said its online survey of 41,451 people found CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was the No. 2 pick, with 27 percent of respondents wishing for the newsman to fill out their tax forms, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Beth Pinsker Gladstone, the Web site's editor, said the results came as a surprise.

I'm very surprised. I thought for sure Jon Stewart would win, she said of the comedian and host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show.

Gladstone said poll participants picked Paris Hilton as the worst celebrity to do taxes.

The poll also found 50 percent of respondents said they were more stressed than usual during this tax season because of the economic crisis.
