Poll: Limbaugh’s popularity down sharply among Republican voters in three Super Tuesday states
As far as I know, there have been no national polls yet on the impact of the Rush Limbaugh controversy on his core constituency, conservative Republicans.
But approval of the famed radio host seems to have SLIPPED significantly among GOP voters in Georgia, Ohio and Tennessee, three states where Republican presidential primary elections will be held tomorrow:
Rush Limbaugh’s popularity has eroded significantly among Republicans in the aftermath of the conservative radio host calling a Georgetown University law student a “slut” on the air last week, according to a new poll Monday.
Less than half of likely GOP primary voters in three Super Tuesday states said they have a favorable view of Limbaugh – 45 percent favorable to 28 percent unfavorable in Ohio, 46-29 percent in Tennessee, and 44-30 percent in Georgia — a Public Policy Polling survey in those states found.
The last time PPP polled on Limbaugh nationally, 80 percent of Republicans viewed the radio host favorably while only 12 percent saw him in an unfavorable light.
