Republicanís view of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has fallen deeply in the wake of misogynistic remarks he made about a Georgetown University law student.

Less than half of Republicans in Georgia, Ohio and Tennessee have a favorable opinion of Limbaugh, according to Public Policy Polling. The last time PPP surveyed his popularity nationally, 80 percent of Republicans had a favorable opinion of him, while only 12 percent had an unfavorable opinion.

His favorability rating among women is even lower. In Ohio, 39 percent of Republican women have a favorable opinion of Limbaugh. In Tennessee, 36 percent of Republican women have a favorable opinion.

Limbaugh and Birthers

On our Georgia, Ohio, and Tennessee Republican polls in addition to looking at the Presidential race we also polled on some of the issues that have been in the news over the last week: Rush Limbaugh and the reemergence of

Our numbers suggest that Rush Limbaugh has seen significant erosion in his popularity with Republican voters over the last week. The last time we polled on him nationally he was at 80/12 with GOPers. But now we find him below 50% in all three of these states: he's at 45/28 in Ohio, 46/29 in Tennessee, and 44/30 in Georgia.

Republican women in particular have become very skeptical about Limbaugh in the states holding tomorrow's 2 most competitive contests. He's at only 39/28 with them in Ohio and 36/30 in Tennessee
Feelings about Limbaugh produce a pretty big divide in who GOP voters are planning to cast their ballots for tomorrow. Among Ohio Republicans who like Limbaugh Rick Santorum leads Mitt Romney 39-35.† With ones who dislike him Romney has the 39-30 advantage.
