Admittedly, I am mashing up poll numbers from two different surveys, but one rarely sees two people with such low approval ratings.

According to a new poll from Public Policy Polling, despite him no longer being in power, and most of the state’s Cuban population having never lived in Cuba, Fidel Castro is still a reviled figure to Florida voters.  86% have an unfavorable opinion of him, and only 4% a favorable one.

The only person less popular than Fidel Castro is John Edwards, at least if you extrapolate from new polling numbers conducted nationally.

A new CBS News/New York Times poll finds that just 3% of registered voters hold a favorable view of Edwards.

Better to be a Communist dictator than to cheat on your cancer-stricken wife, hmmm?
