POLL: SUSA Respect Ratings


A new SurveyUSA automated survey of 1,200 adults (conducted 9/3 through 9/4) finds:

  • When asked to rate each presidential candidate on a scale of 1 to 10 "where 10 means you have the highest possible respect for the person, and 1 means you have no respect for that person whatsoever," ratings for former Mayor Rudy Giuliani average at 5.5, Sen. Hillary Clinton at 5.3, senators Barack Obama and John McCain both at 5.2, and former senators John Edwards and Fred Thompson both at 5.0.
  • Ratings for Former Pres. Bill Clinton average at 6.1 today -- 5.2 on the eve of his grand jury testimony.

Andrew:

Are pollsters bored these days? What kind of idiotic question is this?

I don't know, the fact that 17% of white people (24% of Republicans) chose between 1 and 4 for Martin Luther King, Jr. was pretty shocking to me.

Sort of puts the issue of racism and basic civil rights back into perspective, no? That's a *quarter* of Republicans who do not respect King. They're either allowing petty political disagreements to overshadow the massive good that he did, or they're flat-out racists. Either way, wow.

Don't worry, Till, that 25% is probably pretty old anyway.
