Georgia GOPers like Paula Deen more than MLK

A new PPP poll shows that Deen has a higher favorability rating than King

Topics: Georgia, Republicans, Paula Deen, Martin Luther King, Polling,

According to a new poll by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, Republicans in Georgia have a more favorable opinion of Paula Deen than they do of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Deen, of course, was dropped by the Food Network after admitting that “yes, of course” she used the N-word, and amid other allegations of racism by former employees.
