Google+ THE TALK SHOW AMERICAN: Poll: Bush Top 'Good Guy' and 'Bad Guy'

Poll: Bush Top 'Good Guy' and 'Bad Guy'

Bad guy of 2006: President Bush. Good guy of 2006: President Bush.


When people were asked in an AP-AOL News poll to name the villains and heroes of the year, Bush topped both lists, in a sign of these polarized times.


Bush won the villain sweepstakes by a landslide, with one in four respondents putting him at the top of that bad-guy list. When people were asked to name the candidate for villain that first came to mind, Bush far outdistanced even Osama bin Laden, the terrorist leader in hiding; and former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, who is scheduled for execution.


The president was picked as hero of the year by a much smaller margin. In the poll, 13 percent named him as their favorite while 6 percent cited the troops in Iraq.
