CBS Poll: Democrats' Thumbs Down Keeps Limbaugh Approval Low
March 20, 2009 at 5:14 AM (PT)
The bad news for RUSH LIMBAUGH in a CBS NEWS poll is that only 19% of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of the PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS host. The interesting part is that Speaker of the House NANCY PELOSI (D-CA) has an even lower approval rating, 18%.
The poll shows LIMBAUGH with 19% favorable, 40% not favorable, and a plurality -- 41% -- with no opinion. However, LIMBAUGH jumps to 47% favorability among Republicans, with his low overall number resulting from Democrats, only 7% of whom look at RUSH favorably.
The same poll showed President OBAMA's approval rating still high, holding roughly flat at 62%, and his handling of the economy also holding at 56% favorable. PELOSI's 18% favorable rating is actually a jump from FEBRUARY, when she was at 10% favorable.
