After asking Americans to check their credit scores, WalletHub surveyed 1,000 people about their preferences and home lives. The findings are intriguing: 

Of those with excellent credit, 88 percent prefer Taylor Swift to Kanye West. 

In late night, 66 percent of Charlie Rose fans have excellent credit; 10 percent of them have bad credit — whereas, Conan O'Brien fans are more evenly split with 32 percent having excellent credit and 27 percent having bad credit.

WalletHub's survey also found that of Americans who prefer hockey, 53 percent have excellent credit. Thirty-four percent of soccer fans, on the other hand, have bad credit.

And apparently, 49 percent of people without kids have excellent credit. Though, 49 percent of parents with three kids also have excellent credit. But 37 percent of parents with four or more kids have bad credit.

Like we said before, these findings are interesting, but are they just a coincidence? Probably, yeah.
