• John Edwards Has Three Percent Approval

    Today begin's the trial of former Sen. John Edwards, and — believe it or not — his favorability is waaaay down. Good thing somebody spent the time and money to get those numbers

    The CBS/NYT poll reveals that only 3 percent of those polled hold a favorable view of Edwards, who has been charged with misusing campaign funds. That is down from 30 percent in 2007 when he was running for the Democratic nomination, which is also the last time the question was asked among registered voters.

    Since 2007, Edwards' unfavorable ratings have risen eleven points, from 30 percent to 41 percent today. However, half of those polled are undecided or don't have an opinion of Edwards.

    Women, however, especially dislike Edwards, with just 2 percent holding a favorable view of him compared to 45 percent who view him unfavorably.

    Just think. In some alternate reality out there in the multiverse, John Edwards is the Vice President of the United States during the Kerry Administration right now.

    Can you even imagine how bad that's guy's approval rating is?
