Responding to PPP poll results released Thursday revealing net negative favorability ratings for all but one primary candidate, blowhard radio host Rush Limbaugh came to the conclusion that "everybody sucks."

The automated poll found that of all remaining candidates (and Mitt Romney, for whatever reason) only the biggest loser, John Kasich, has a net positive favorability — though his 41:39 approval/disapproval split falls within the margin of error (+/-3).

"Kasich also happens to be the one the least heard from," Limbaugh theorized during his syndicated show Friday. "So I think that’s how you chalk it up."

"I mean, if you want a campaign slogan for 2016, I mean, ‘Everybody sucks,’" he continued. "Other than Kasich, everybody is disliked by a far greater number of people than like them."
