What we found was that while 56% of men reported having a favorable opinion of Rush, only 37% of women did.
Apparently that really caught the attention of the man himself, and after calling us 'a bunch of liberals' he announced on the show yesterday that he's going to have a 'Female Listener Summit' to discuss his gender gap. You can read the transcript of his reaction to the poll here.
Here's the gist of his 'summit'
So, you ladies be on standby. Be ready at any moment for me to declare the summit officially underway, and we will take calls only from women who want to seriously discuss the proposition of this giant gender gap that I have, and what I could do to close it. In other words: What could I do to attract a higher favorability rating among more women in America? I own the men, and what must I do now to own women?Almost immediately after Rush discussed this yesterday I got an e-mail from a Robert Wiseman informing me:
SO MUCH FOR POLLING--COUNT ME (WOMAN) IN FOR A APPROVAL VOTE FOR "LIMBAUGH". HE IS THE ONLY PLACE ONE CAN GET THE REAL FACTS ANY MORE ABOUT ANYTHING.
So there you go Rush. You are loved by women named 'Robert.'

Never a boring day...
