Rush Limbaugh Less Popular Than Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Reported by Ellen - February 4, 2009 -

Oh, the poetic justice. All that hate-mongering on Sean Hannity's part for naught. First, Barack Obama wins the election. Now, Max Blumenthal, at The Daily Beast, reports that Hannity's soulmate, Rush Limbaugh, has lost a popularity contest with their campaign scapegoats, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers.

Blumenthal writes:

Republicans who have turned to Rush Limbaugh to lead the fight against President Obama may have backed the wrong horse. According to one recent poll, Limbaugh turns out to be one of the most unpopular political figures in the country.

An October 24, 2008, poll conducted by the Democratic research firm Greenberg-Quinlan-Rosner has Rush Limbaugh enjoying a public-approval rating of just 21 percent among likely voters, while 58 percent have “cold” feelings toward the right-wing radio-talk-show host. Limbaugh was the least popular of the all the political figures the firm polled. He polls seven points lower than Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright and eight points below former Weather Underground domestic terrorist William Ayers.

Put that in your Viagra pipe and smoke it, Rush!

Unfortunately, his fellow hate monger, Sean Hannity is 10 points more popular.
