Megyn Kelly's Not a Fan Favorite

Megyn Kelly’s new NBC morning show isn’t raking in the ratings, possibly because Americans aren’t the biggest fans of Kelly herself.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% of American Adults have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Kelly, a former Fox News anchor who made the switch to NBC News earlier this year.  Forty-five percent (45%) have an unfavorable opinion of the current host of “Megyn Kelly Today.” This includes just six percent (6%) with a Very Favorable view of Kelly and 19% with a Very Unfavorable one. Twenty-seven percent (27%) don’t know enough about the television personality to offer an opinion. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
