Not that surprising to be honest. People love to complain - you always do better when "their guy" is in charge. I imagine Rush's ratings would be up as well.
Amazing that Beck was so high. We really should be able to get Ron Paul on that list.Beck particularly enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence on the national stage in 2009, partially by establishing himself as a bit of a political organizer of the "Tea Party" movement. An increasingly polarizing figure, a recent Gallup poll placed Beck fourth among the most admired men by Americans, trailing only President Obama, former President George W. Bush and South African leader Nelson Mandela. Media Matters, however, recently bestowed Beck with the dubious distinction of being 2009's "Misinformer of the Year."
