Poll: Plurality of Americans do not like Sarah Palin

Published

on

Looks like the voters are going rogue.

According to new CBS News figures [PDF link], 38 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Sarah Palin. Meanwhile, 37 percent are not paying attention, saying they do not know enough to form an opinion.

Just 23 percent of those surveyed think highly of the former Alaska governor. Among Republicans, her favorability rating is even more surprising: only 52 percent. Among Democrats, that figure is predictably anemic, with only four percent giving her high marks.

The survey revealed that Palin’s greatest support seems to come from white evangelical Christians, who would support a Palin 2012 presidential bid by a slim majority, 48-42 percent.

Overall, two out of three people surveyed said they do not want her to run for the presidency during the next election. Even a majority of Republicans — 44-48 percent — do not want a Palin candidacy in 2012.

“Overall, 26 percent of Americans say she could be effective in the job,” CBS reported.

Sarah Palin’s book, “Going Rogue,” goes on sale Tuesday.

It prompted many to wonder if the president whipped out his fact-changing Sharpie yet again.
