NewsMax Poll On Hypothetical Imus Comeback

Considering who sponsored this poll - and the very fact that it was an Internet poll - it's hardly a cross-section of America. What I do get out of it is that a lot of people who are not Imus fans favor an Imus comeback:

1) Should Imus make a media comeback to radio and TV airwaves?

Yes: 79 percent

No: 21 percent

2) What is your overall opinion of Don Imus?

Favorable: 44 percent

Unfavorable: 31 percent

No Opinion: 25 percent

At least a near third of those unfavorables (10% of total sample) voted "yes" for Imus to return to the air. This group is probably larger than that - I imagine that some may be neutral toward Imus but feel he got what he deserved - but we don't know by how much.

Also, at least eight percent of respondents are complete whackballs:

6) Do you believe Al Sharpton has any credibility attacking Imus?

Has credibility: 8 percent

Has no credibility: 92 percent
