Former Senator John Edwards, and full-time philanderer, John Edwards is the most unpopular figure anywhere...anytime...ever polled.
According to Public Policy Polling, Edwards is the most unpopular person they have polled - EVAAAAH!
He's still seen positively by 25% of Democrats but only 9% of independents and 3% of Republicans. Interestingly despite his new image as a philanderer men have a more unfavorable opinion of him (75%) than women (68%).This Huffington Post piece says obviously Edwards would be unpopular - after all, while running for US Vice-President, he fathered a child with a woman not his wife, and that wife, Elizabeth, was battling terminal cancer.
Apparently, (and allegedly) Mrs. Edwards booted Johnny's rear out of the house again, just after Christmas 2009. The National Enquirer, always on John's tail, talked to "Stephanie," a bartender on Figure Eight Island, N.C. Steph said Edwards was in her bar for four straight nights - tried to get her to go to his home with him, and told her he was soon to be divorced.
And yet, to be historically unpopular is a real feat, considering all the loathed politicians. The Huffington Post asked PPP's pollster Tom Jensen to contrast Edwards's plight with those of others he's followed. Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill) was the record holder before Edwards and "Jim Bunning (R) in Kentucky was in that territory as well," he replied.
