The headline: from Rasmussen: Just 11% of Republicans Say Limbaugh Is Their Party’s Leader.
This certainly sounds like it might be of significance in light of the Democratic efforts (with Republican cooperation) to tie the GOP to Rush Limbaugh. One’s interpretation of this headline should change considerably after reading a few paragraphs down:
For this topic, respondents were asked if they agreed or disagreed with the statement, “Rush Limbaugh is the leader of the Republican Party. He says jump, and they say how high.”
Phrased this way, I’m surprised that even 11% agreed. A poll regarding Republican views of different potential leaders without such leading language would be far more interesting. I bet far more than 11% would say they like Rush.
