People Agree with Jon Stewart More Than Any Conservative Commentator, Poll Finds


According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, Jon Stewart topped a list of 10 pundits and more than half of respondents said they agree with him on some issues.

The Reuters piece explains that, "Stewart...also ranked highest on two other traits – fearlessness and most admired. Of the 2,013 people 18 and older polled, nearly half found him unafraid in confronting 'issues that others ignore,' while 48 percent said they admired him."

According to the same poll, only 34 percent of respondents agree with Rush Limbaugh, but almost 90 percent are familiar with his work.

Jon Stewart's final Daily Show appearance will take place on August 6th.
