Finally, a scientific poll about Rush Limbaugh

Finally, a scientific poll about Rush Limbaugh:

The surprising results came in a new scientific telephone survey of nearly l,100 respondents conducted Aug. 20-22 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.93 percentage points. It was done by Wenzel Strategies.

While nearly 60 percent of the respondents claim they never listen to the dominant voice on the radio airwaves today, only 15 percent were unsure whether Limbaugh is helpful or harmful to the U.S., and almost exactly the same number were unable to rate his performance.

In the poll, 56 percent said Limbaugh is doing an excellent, good or fair job, while only 28 percent said his performance was poor. Fifteen percent had no opinion.

More than 51 percent said his work is very helpful or somewhat helpful to the nation, while 34 percent said he was very harmful or somewhat harmful. Again, 15 percent held no opinion.

"Even among the very liberal, 42 percent said he was helpful to America," said Fritz Wenzel, president of Wenzel Strategies. "There is a significant gender gap for Limbaugh, as 59 percent of all men considered him helpful to America, just 43 percent of women agreed. That said, more women than not agreed that Limbaugh is helpful to America – just 38 percent of women said he was harmful, while 19 percent were not sure.
