70% of voters nationally have an unfavorable opinion of Weiner compared to just 8% with a positive one. He’s really burned his bridges with pretty much everyone. Certainly his numbers are their worst with Republicans. He has a 3/85 favorability spread with them. But it’s hard to take much positive from his 14/60 standing with independents or the 8/63 he pulls with Democrats either.
60% of voters think he should resign to only 25% who think he should stay in office and 15% who don’t offer an opinion. A plurality of Democrats (46/34) think he should step aside as do a majority of independents (54/28) and pretty much all Republicans (81/11). Interestingly men (66% ) feel much strongly than women (55% ) that Weiner needs to go.
