Poll: Rush Most Influential Conservative
By a wide margin, Americans consider Rush Limbaugh the nation's most influential conservative voice.
Those are the results of a poll conducted by "60 Minutes" and Vanity Fair magazine and issued Sunday. The radio host was picked by 26 percent of those who responded, followed by Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck at 11 percent. Actual politicians - former Vice President Dick Cheney and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin - were the choice of 10 percent each.
This is the kicker:
The random national telephone sample of 855 adults was conducted by CBS News from Nov. 6-8. The margin for error is plus or minus three percentage points.
Keep in mind this is a CBS poll, but back to that in a minute.
Why would you poll all Americans to find out who the most influential conservative is? Wouldn't you maybe poll conservatives only? Why would anyone else have any insight, or any business for that matter, in determining who the most influential conservative is?
Now, as I said, this is done by CBS. To say their polls can have a little liberal bias is beyond ridiculous, they have a lot of liberal bias.
So we have a poll that is likely slanted to the left asking this question. Any guesses as to why? Could this perhaps be done solely to attempt to embarrass the right and push CBS' far left agenda.?
Naw, they're a news organization. They would have better standards than this. Right?
