Most Americans View Newlyweds Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Unfavorably
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and hip-hop superstar Kanye West were married over the weekend in Paris. The news of their wedding was nearly inescapable, but that doesn't mean most Americans like the newlyweds very much.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 77% of American Adults have at least a somewhat unfavorable view of Kardashian, and just 11% view her favorably. This includes 48% with a Very Unfavorable opinion and only two percent (2%) with a Very Favorable one. Similarly, 71% have at least a somewhat unfavorable opinion of West, while just 13% have a somewhat favorable opinion of the rapper. This includes 45% with a Very Unfavorable view and four percent (4%) who view him Very Favorably. Six percent (6%) have never heard of Kardashian, and slightly more (10%) say the same of her new husband. (To see survey question wording, click here).
