Blagojevich More Reviled than Charlie Sheen



    Blagojevich More Reviled than Charlie Sheen

    Not many people actually like Charlie Sheen these days.

    Sure he's fun to watch in that train wreck kind of way, but according to Public Policy Polling he's not adored.

    That group took a poll -- under the pretense that Charlie Sheen has a better shot at the White House than Sarah Palin; he would -- and found that Sheen's favorability rating is 10% with 67% holding an unfavorable opinion.

    Only two people ever rated lower than Sheen on the favoribilty spread and they both belong to Illinois Politics.

    Sheen is one of the most unpopular figures we've ever polled on. 10% of Americans rate him favorably to 67% with a negative opinion of him. The only people we've ever found worse numbers for are Rod Blagojevich in Illinois (an 8/83 favorability spread), Jesse Jackson Jr. in Illinois (a 10/73 favorability), and Levi Johnston in Alaska (a 6/72 favorability). Sheen's -57 spread ties what we found for John Edwards in North Carolina the last time we polled him (15/72).

    So, when it comes to unfavorable marks, Rod Blagojevich is the one who's, duh, winning.

    We'll see if a jury agrees this summer when the former governor's retrial is expected to wrap.
