A recent poll by the Palm Beach Post asked residents to name their favorite Palm Beach icon and Jimmy Buffett came in third.

Who is your favorite iconic Palm Beach County person? — came down to three men: The Golden Bear, the Bandit and the Man from Margaritaville.

In the end, the Bear won out.

Jack Nicklaus won the Taking Your Pulse poll for favorite local icon with 30 percent of the vote. More than 1,700 votes were cast, making this the second most popular poll so far.

Burt Reynolds ended up in second place at 15.8 percent, while Jimmy Buffett took third at 10.3 percent.

Rounding out the top five are comic Larry The Cable Guy at 3.9 percent and radio personality Rush Limbaugh at 3.7 percent.
