    Default Poll: Rush Limbaugh could galvanize Dems, alienate independents

    Poll: Limbaugh Could Galvanize Dems, Alienate Independents

    By Eric Kleefeld - February 6, 2009, 12:16PM

    A new Gallup poll explains why Democrats are now so eager to connect the anti-stimulus bill Republicans to Rush Limbaugh, and to set up Rush as the new Leader of the Opposition: Independents hate him, he can galvanize Democrats...and Republican voters actually do like him.

    Limbaugh's favorable-unfavorable numbers among Republicans stand at 60%-23%. Among independents, though, he's at just 25%-45%. And Democrats definitely have it in for him at 6%-63%. Multiplying out the partisan subsets in this poll, we get an overall top-line result of 28% favorability for Limbaugh across the country, compared to 45% unfavorable.

    So if Limbaugh does become a national issue, the data shows he could be a net plus for the Dems -- though the obvious caveat exists that swing voters could have more important things to worry about than some radio loudmouth.

    I knew Dems couldn't stand Rush (and with good reason), but I didn't know how detested he was among Independents.

    He is an unmitigated a-hole.
