Poll: Most Americans now believe Bill Cosby's accusers

YouGov’s latest research highlights how far Bill Cosby has fallen in public esteem. In 1997 a survey by Gallup/CNN/USA Today reported that 90% of Americans had a favorable opinion of Bill Cosby and even in November of last year, when the first allegations were hitting the headlines, 51% of Americans had a favorable opinion of him. Today only 25% of Americans view him favorably while 59% view him unfavorably. 

Black Americans are still largely split on Cosby, with 32% still viewing Cosby favorably and 37% viewing him unfavorably.
