American public opinion is so down on BP, Brits are beginning to protest. But in the midst of all this, Reuters's Felix Salmon reminds us: BP still isn't as bad as Goldman Sachs (according to public opinion, that is). A chart from BrandIndex shows people are still hearing more negative things about the Wall Street giant than the company presiding over the Gulf oil spill. Salmon muses over the chart's implications:
To get a score of -40, where Goldman Sachs seems to have fallen to, you'd need 70 people saying they were hearing negative stuff about the bank for every 30 saying they'd heard something positive. BP's not there yet: I do wonder who's hearing positive things about them.
