People Really Hate John Edwards


For a few months John Edwards seemed to slip from the public’s mind, but thanks to a little story from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s Game Change, Edwards is back! So this was the perfect time for a poll of his home state to see just what North Carolinians think of the former Senator and presidential candidate. The answer? Not much. Edwards’s favorability rating came in at a dismal 15 percent. Polling firm Public Policy Polling said that makes Edwards the”most unpopular person we’ve polled anywhere at any time.” Congratulations to former record holder Roland Burris, someone is more hated than you!
