I know this polls is ridiculous but......
August 19, 2005--Cindy Sheehan, the grieving mother who maintained an anti-War protest outside of President Bush's ranch, is viewed favorably by 35% of Americans and unfavorably by 38%.
Sheehan is viewed favorably by 34% of men and 35% of women. Forty-two percent (42%) of men and 34% of women have an unfavorable view.
In general, people see in Sheehan what they want to see. Opinion about Sheehan is largely based upon views of the War, rather than views about the woman herself. Democrats, by a 56% to 18% margin, have a favorable opinion. Republicans, by a 64% to 16% margin, have an unfavorable view. Those not affiliated with either major party are evenly divided.
People who think we should withdraw troops from Iraq now have a positive opinion of Sheehan (59% favorable , 12% unfavorable). Those who do not think we should withdraw at this time have a negative view (15% favorable , 64% unfavorable).
Among those with family members who have served in the military, Sheehan is viewed favorably by 31% and unfavorably by 48%.
Forty-two percent (42%) of Married Americans have an unfavorable opinion of Sheehan while 33% have a favorable opinion. Among those who are not married, Sheehan's numbers are 38% favorable and 30% favorable.
Fifty-five percent (55%) of Americans say they are following the Sheehan story somewhat or very closely. That is a lower level of interest than Americans have in stories about Iran's nuclear capabilities. It is roughly comparable to the interest in stories about Supreme Court nominee John Roberts.
News reports said that Sheehan left Texas yesterday (Thursday) to be with her mother who had suffered a stroke. Sheehan vowed to return as soon as possible.

Yea and thats with the MSM giving only favorable accounts of what she is doing!
And 28% want to know which reality show she's on?
This is bad news for Libs. Her unfavorables are only going to get worse as she gets more camera time and her looney statements get out. She better hurry, there is only a couple of weeks left before the bored media folks get back to D.C.
Gonna break Don Imus and Frank Rich's hearts but perhaps they can comfort each other.
I feel sorry for her. Losing a child has got to be the worst thing that could ever happen. I think the grief has really made her lose her mind.
Spend the night at Cindy's house with all her crazy friends.
Our society is SO screwed up.
You mean what I have been watching hasn't been "Survivor: Crawford."
I can't bring myself to feel the least bit sorry for this woman. She's virtually destroyed her son's legacy as well as her family through her liberal antics. If anything she makes me ill.
EXACTLY! Good point.
Yeah, since the MSM can't seem to report the news accurately. I was watching traffic and weather this morning and found myself screaming at the TV when in a blurb they announced she had to leave her vigil waiting for a meeting with the President after losing her son in Iraq. "2ND MEETING YOU NON-REPORTING TWIT!!"
Oh that game was great. Day of the Tentacles was just as funny and good!
I've always been of the opinion (once I read her rants) that the more attention she gets, the better.
Glad you liked it ! :)
Is it possible that 15% "favorable" reflect the feelings of those who believe that Cindy's antics are exposing the true nature of the left? (I could be in favor of that!) If so, then her true "favorables" really plummet!
He calls himself "Patient Zero."
His use of duct tape would suggest the lad is sometimes a bit wobbly on his feet.
