Who doesn’t like Big Bird?

Who doesn’t like Big Bird? Apparently, quite a few people.

Public Policy Polling released its poll of Virginia voters today and has thrown in some questions about Big Bird.

Clearly, this is aimed at Gov. Romney’s comments in last week’s presidential debate that he’d like to cut PBS funding.

But the question in the poll was on a favorability rating for Big Bird, not his employer. And nearly half of those surveyed aren’t sure they favor the Bird or don’t like him (or her, whatever).


A subsequent question asks specifically about PBS funding. And there, people are more sure of their opinion.


A possible future polling question might be whether people don’t favor Big Bird because they don’t like funding of PBS, or whether people don’t like funding of PBS because they don’t like Big Bird.
