New poll out on Rush Limbaugh by Democracy Corps does not bode well for the Republican Party.
With King Rush as the Republican face and mouthpiece he has turned off the independent voters and moderate Republicans.
...a new national survey from Democracy Corps and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner finds that Limbaugh weighs down heavily on an already weakened Republican Party – putting Republican leaders and their party’s conservative base voters out of sync with not only Democrats and independents, but even the bloc of moderate Republicans.
And the young voters? They don't like King Rush, at all.
It does not help that some of the key voters in the 2006 and 2008 elections, like younger voters, are particularly uncomfortable with Limbaugh’s politics.
Again, many voters think the Republican Party is dated, not current and has no fresh ideas or leaders to offer. Well, they don't.
62 percent of voters, including a similar percentage of moderate Republicans, say that the Republican Party is embracing the “same old ideas and leaders it has relied on for the past 20 years” rather than seeking out new leaders and fresh ideas.
But the base, LOVES King Rush!!
Conservative Republican voters, however, embrace Limbaugh, giving him a very high favorability rating; they say he shares their values and urge Republican leaders to defend him when he is criticizing President Obama.
Base only does not equal winning national elections. We just witnessed that with Barack Obama winning over John McCain. And lastly the voters view King Rush negatively by a two-to-one margin.
Republicans this is not good at all. If you can not reign in King Rush, he will be looked upon continually as your MOUTHPIECE.
So, what are you going to do about it? Starting with the Republican D.C. crowd who cowtows to King Rush everytime he talks into his microphone in Florida. What are you going to do?
