Poll: Mel Gibson Movies Unscarred By Scandal

60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll Finds Scandal Has Little Effect On Moviegoers



It's the film, not the man, the vast majority of Americans (76 percent) seemed to be saying when they picked "No, no effect" in answering the question, "Are you now less likely to go see a Mel Gibson movie as a result of the recent scandal?" Men at 80 percent and women at 72 percent were almost in total agreement on that one, with 20 percent overall answering they would be "less likely" to view his films.

Check out the rest of the "60 Minutes"/Vanity Fair Poll.

This poll was conducted at the CBS News interviewing facility among a random sample of 847 adults nationwide, interviewed by telephone August 3-5, 2010. Phone numbers were dialed from random digit dial samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups is higher.
