Not according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll that found a mere 16 percent of adults nationwide have a favorable opinion of the actor, while 71 percent have an unfavorable impression.

Those findings also say 42 percent have a very unfavorable view of the Two and A Half Men star. Ouch.

And while Sheen news is dominating publications and websites (like yours truly), it looks like only 35 percent of Americans are keeping up with the headlines.  Most folks — like 63 percent — are not paying attention to news reports about Sheen curing himself with his brain or his crazy talk about warlocks (perish the thought!). And among those who are actually taking the time to get the dirty details, 57 percent support the Men’s producers while only 18 percent give a thumbs-up to Sheen.

The survey of 1,000 adults was conducted on March 1 and 2 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of error is plus/minus 3 percentage points. For more about this oh-so-important survey, click here.
