As Michael Steele continues to grovel to Rush Limbaugh, a new Gallup poll shows that only 60% of Republicans like Rush Limbaugh.

Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is viewed favorably by 60% of Republicans nationwide, while 23% have an unfavorable opinion of him. In sharp contrast, only 6% of Democrats view Limbaugh favorably, while 63% view him unfavorably.

With Republicans so afraid of Limbaugh's wrath, you would think his approval rating would be 90%. I guess outside of the "ditto heads" people identifying as Republicans don't think he's all that.

Can you help us out?
