The results of a new ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday bear ill omen for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Nearly two-third of those surveyed said they “definitely would not” vote for Palin should she decide to run for president in 2012. It’s known that she is generally unpopular with Democrats and Independent voters, but the knife in her candidacy is further twisted by the poll numbers from Republicans: 42 percent of GOPers surveyed rejected voting for her.
More than six in 10 surveyed said that Palin was not qualified to be president.
Palin has been playing coy about whether she will run, embarking on a nationwide bus tour beginning late May that she insists is not a campaign tour, and “not about her.” Recently, Palin has been making headlines with her mangling of an account of Paul Revere’s historical midnight ride.
