Mr. 24%

According to Rasmussen, only 24% of Americans consider The Goracle an "expert" on global warming.
Former Vice President Al Gore (D) received a warm welcome on Capitol Hill last week for his testimony on the environment and Global Warming. However, while he is now an Academy Award winner and celebrity activist, just 24% of Americans consider Gore an expert on Global Warming. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 1,000 adults found that 47% say he is not an expert on the topic (see crosstabs).

In fact, just 36% of Americans say that Gore knows what he is talking about when it comes to the environment and Global Warming. Thirty-one percent (31%) say he does not know what he is talking about while 33% are not sure. Women, by a 2-to-1 margin, say Gore knows what he is talking about. Men, by a similar margin, say he does not.
After all the hype, after all the lies, he's only got 24% believing him.

Just for comparison, consider after six years of relentlessly negative and downright hostile coverage, according to Rasmussen, President Bush is at 40%, which some might consider good considering how he's been portrayed.
