A CBS News/Vanity Fair poll listed radio host Rush Limbaugh as the nation’s most influential conservative voice, according to results released Sunday. Limbaugh was named by 26 percent of respondents, followed by Glenn Beck with 11 percent and politicians Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney at 10 percent each.
That Limbaugh is the nation’s leading conservative voice should come as no shock, given its a position he held – poll data or not – since the early 1990s. The only true shock is that CBS News is actually acknowledging the radio host’s existence without attempting to tie him to an appetite suppressant scandal or something like that. Refreshing! Thanks for telling us what we already knew, CBS!
