LOL, Zimmerman more popular than Sharpton

by James Denison / July 20, 2013 3:21 AM PDT
What a twisted web Sharpton weaves when he first began to deceive. Seems he failed in getting the "respect" he was hoping for.

"The last Rasmussen poll that looked at NBC's Al Sharpton was in April of last year. It showed that only 26% of Americans viewed the MSNBC anchor favorably, while a full 60% viewed him unfavorably.
It is hard to imagine that has improved much considering his demagogic
and racially-divisive behavior surrounding the tragic shooting death of
Trayvon Martin.
By contrast, however, a new Rasmussen poll shows that George
Zimmerman, the Hispanic man recently acquitted in the fatal shooting of
Martin, is viewed favorably by 32% of the public (6 points higher than Sharpton), and unfavorably by less than half of the public, 48% (compared to Sharpton's 60%).
What's remarkable is that after 15 months of the media, political left, and Barack Obama engaging in a relentless campaign of lies, race-baiting, fabricating evidence, and selective reporting against Zimmerman, his unfavorable rating isn't above 50%. "

Sharpton is not a valid comparison since he is disliked even

by his own constituents. And it is much too soon to assume Zimmerman won't melt down shortly after this all settles down.

this whole event has been crazy

Blacks trying to make it a huge cause, but as we've seen it's not what they'd imagined. Yet other events that could easily be considered to back whatever point they want to make exist, such as that old white man in Milwaukee who shot a kid who really was just 13 and lived next door, and it's all on video. Compared to that old coot, Zimmerman is a saint. I think once the emotionalism dies down more the general opinion among both whites and blacks will be that expressed by Barkley, former NBA player.
