Pie is one of the most treasured parts of the Thanksgiving Day meal. A great many of us are more than happy to eat seconds or thirds of this course, regardless of how full we might already be. It's easy to understand why -- Thanksgiving boasts some of the best pie flavors of the year.

While pumpkin and pecan reign supreme on this day, apple, chocolate pecan and sometimes cranberry or pear also make appearances. But which of these pies is America's favorite? We polled the people to find out -- and they have spoken.

Pumpkin pie is America's favorite Thanksgiving pie, by a lot -- and apple beats out pecan with a significant preference. Chocolate pecan has a few fans and the folks who didn't vote for any of those four either can't decide or are crazy and don't enjoy pie at all.

So, what does this mean for your Thanksgiving? Be sure to stock up on pumpkin pie (and we've got recipes to help you do just that).

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted Nov. 13-16 among U.S. adults, using a sample selected from YouGov's opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.

The Huffington Post has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls. You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov's nationally representative opinion polling. Data from all HuffPost/YouGov polls can be found here. More details on the polls' methodology are available here.

Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some, but not all, potential survey errors. YouGov's reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample, rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.
