General Hospital Poll Results: Fans Sound Off On Alexis Drinking

Alexis General HospitalAlexis General Hospital

Oh, look, General Hospital fans, Alexis can’t handle something… again. And she’s responding by falling off the wagon.

General Hospital Polling

What a strong, female role model she is for her three daughters and her granddaughter. We wanted to know how you felt about this very familiar twist… and over 6,000 viewers answered:


A winning majority 45% of the audience couldn’t believe that all it took was Sam (Kelly Monaco) raising her voice to Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), and, zoom, there she goes, down the throat of a bottle.

Isn’t Alexis supposed to be some hot-shot lawyer? Isn’t she a grown woman who has faced many crises, starting with watching Helena (Constance Towers) cutting her mother’s throat all the way through to her then-husband, Julian (William DeVry), threatening to do the same to her?

What do you think? Post a comment!

Shouldn’t she be a little tougher than that? A little more capable of handling life’s little ups and downs. Grow up, Alexis, we are all very disappointed in you.

Take a Left

A smaller 33% of General Hospital fans are OK with the story point as long as it leads to Alexis getting some insight and changing her behavior – finally. She’s been doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That’s the definition of crazy pants. If this actually forces Alexis to stop acting like a scattered teenager (see above), then you’re all for it.

Dream Drama

And then there are the 22% who want Alexis to stay just the way she is. If Alexis ever gets herself together, there goes the drama. And you love the drama. Alexis as a hot mess is entertaining. Especially when she refuses to see what a hot mess she is. If she were to ever become a functioning adult, well, what would be the fun of that? General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC.
