“compared to 20% of liberals and 18% of moderates who said the same thing. In other words, Limbaugh’s potential audience is larger than that of liberal competitors because more liberals say they will listen to conservatives than vice versa.”
Its very simple. Liberals are not entertaining or optimistic. Who wants to sit around and listen to doom and gloom and it’s “Bush’s Fault.” It not inspiring, entertaining or informative. Also, subconciously, those liberal listeners want to change to the dark side, they just won’t admit it. Peer pressure ya know. :)
Well, I suppose liberals like to break away and hear the truth once in awhile.
It helps them separate truth from spin. They get educated, and go on to deny all the truth they discovered.
Zogby has low credibility. You really cannot accept as fact any statement from Zogby.
Oh, right...it's Zogby.
So conservatives don’t enjoy listening to morons and pablum spewing lefties while liberals do enjoy listening to intelligence and common sense.
Hmmmmm . . .
Yeah, but they often don't know it's fiction..
Zogby is a proven liar. Rush’s audience is not drawn from libs.
“...liberals were much more likely than conservatives to listen to commentary and entertainment with which they disagreed philosophically. This could be part of the reason Air America has faltered there are simply fewer potential listeners.”
What a bunch of crap.
Keep listening liberals. Maybe you will see the light and convert.
They’re trying to spin this as “liberals are more open to other points of view” - that’s pure BS. The most intolerant people on earth are “liberals”.
Mr Zogby misread his results. Libs listen to conservative radio and conservatives don’t listen to liberal radio because:
Conservative radio is good.
Liberal radio SUCKS rocks.
Harry Reid listens to Rush as per his tantrum denouncing Rush about the phony soldiers in which Harry was incorrect.
You would think they would learn something while they listened.
Sorry, Zogby and Gallup, and all the rest...I’ll take two ounces of common sense over fifty gallons of polling data any day when it comes to trying to figure out what is going on around me.
Liberals can listen to conservative ideas and even like to steal them on occasion, like Bubba Clintoon. Every once in a while they’ll find themselves saying, “hey, that’s a good point.”
But conservatives have trouble listening to liberal idiots for more than 5 seconds before hitting the off button. The last time I heard myself saying “that’s a good point” to a liberal idea was ...
well, let me get back to you.
Keep in mind that the other participant in this garbage was the Norman Lear Center. Norman Lear is a very far left Hollywood guy despite his funny TV shows years ago.
It strikes me that this is Lear's left-wing agitprop with a thin icing of Zogby to make it seem like it's a poll rather than an outright fabrication. As though the two are mutually exclusive ...
Zogby and Norman Lear...yeah sure! I’ll believe anything those 2 have to say about Rush. Sure I will.
“his popularity may have more to do with preset beliefs in the minds of his listeners than with his presentation skills.”
Then why don’t other hosts draw identical numbers?
Limbaugh’s show is truly useful.
I now pick up women the Limbaugh way. I ask them their names and then always respond “oh that’s one of my top ten favorite all time female names”
