If there was ever a doubt that Americans were sick and tired of the elitist hypocrites in Hollywood, this new poll should set the record the straight.
Gone are the days when America looked up and admired the actors and actresses who graced the big screen.
And this new poll may also explain why Hollywood movies are crashing and burning, and box office revenues are in the tank.

Following Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech criticizing incoming President Donald Trump, most Americans see Hollywood celebrities as politically to the left of them and dismiss the stars as poor role models.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 20% of American Adults think most Hollywood celebrities are good role models. Sixty percent (60%) say they are not, while another 20% undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
