When it comes to John Edwards' popularity apparently familiarity breeds contempt.
A new Gallup survey today finds that 59% of Americans nationally have an unfavorable opinion of him to just 21% that see him in a positive light.
Those numbers are pretty bad, but they compare favorably to the reviews he got the last time we polled about him in North Carolina. 69% of voters in the state said they didn't like him. So much for a home field advantage.
That would seem to indicate Edwards is one politician where the better you know him the less you like him.
