It’s kinda fitting that the messengers is the closest to all the planets simultaneously because that is like they are all linked to mercury and if you only had one mailman everyone would be closer to the mail man and I think I screwed up, that’s cool

I think the correct question asked in the first place should've been "Which orbit is closest to Earth's orbit, Venus' or Mars'?". On the other hand, a very nice fact to think about. 👍

I feel like most people asking this question are referring to distance when the planets are the closest. Not which planet spends the most time being the closest one.
