Surprising news from DailyKos’ weekly national poll: 8 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Bernie Madoff! (To be fair, 76 percent said they had no opinion of the admitted Ponzi schemer, so perhaps the figures were skewed.) Of 1,400 people surveyed, 57 percent approved of Oprah Winfrey, 56 percent said they had a favorable opinion of Ted Kennedy, 23 percent approved of Bush, and 29 percent said they got positive vibes from Rush Limbaugh. Bush received the highest unfavorable rating, with 68 percent, followed closely by Rush, with 64 percent, and Bill O’Reilly, with 52 percent. Could this be a partisan group?
