Nobody Likes Sarah

Sarah Palin must be the most-polled political figure who doesn’t even hold office, but as long as we’re going to get relentless coverage of her it’s good to get data like this.

Palin’s more popular in her own party — 69 percent of Republicans see her favorably. But far fewer, 37 percent, do so “strongly.” (By contrast, in an ABC/Post poll last month, 70 percent of Democrats had a strongly favorable opinion of Barack Obama.) More problematic for Palin is that even in her own party 52 percent think she’s not qualified for the presidency — up by 16 points from an ABC/Post poll in November, shortly before the publication of her memoir, in which she criticizes the strategy of the 2008 Republican presidential campaign.

Full results here. Palin’s been the beneficiary of some magical thinking from pundits and reporters, as evidenced very well in David Broder’s silly column that shares space with this poll today. It was always obvious that by bailing out of the only powerful job she’d held, Palin was attempting to become a celebrity pol — the kind of candidate that conservatives accused Barack Obama of being, when they groused about the media not examining him enough and spending too much time promoting his “narrative” of unity and change. The problem is that Palin, who has been unpopular for all but one month of her time on the national scene (from joining the GOP ticket to the Couric interviews,) has used her post-gubernatorial career to whine and score-settle and not — as the defenders said she had to — talk about policy in any serious way. Instead she’s filibustered about “common-sense” politics, a silly dodge that’s as old as politics itself.

Anyway, here’s what Bill Kristol wrote in The Washington Post when Palin resigned.

She has fervent supporters, which would presumably help her in primaries and caucuses. Among the general public, she has a not-great but not-unmanageable 45-44 favorability rating.

That was in a June Pew poll. Seven months later, she’s got a 37-55 favorability rating. And here’s Matt Continetti writing when Palin’s book hit the shelves.

Independents are a different story. These are the folks who decide presidential elections, and they are divided on Ms. Palin. In last month’s Gallup poll, Ms. Palin had a 48% unfavorable and 41% favorable rating among independents. Not good, but not insurmountable. Flip those percentages, and they could be serving moose burgers in the White House in 2013.

Today:

Six percent of Democrats now consider her qualified for the presidency, a drop from 22 percent in November; the percentage of independents who think she is qualified fell to 29 percent from 37 percent.

But if she finds a way to move up 21 points, they could be serving moose burgers in the White House!

Hopefully we can get the Republicans back into power in the fall and again in 2012. Then we'll be set with another couple of unfunded wars, unfunded tax cuts, unfunded increases to Medicare, and of course some rigorous right-wing ideological views to keep the Christian Conservatives happy.

No, but really Republicans have turned out to be torture for our great country….and it will be a long while before I vote for one.

I hope Palin runs for office. Then the Democrats can keep working on the things that matter.

What's not to like? Sara Palin = George W Bush with breasts… The American people seem to think that Bush was the greatest thing since sliced bologna, why not Palin? She's got all the charm, wit, and brain dead attitude the Georgie had, plus those 2 extra parts!

Sarah Palin is in touch with the American People, has a proven record of balancing budgets, getting rid of corruption, and listening and working for the People. Obama is an elitist who comes from corruption, works strictly for his re election, and has our country in worse financial mess in its history. As a former Democrate, I'd vote for her today in a heart beat.

“If anyone likes her, they probably are not educated.” You hit the nail on the head. It's painfully obvious from the interviews shown on TV when Palin did her book tour that the people supporting her are a few beers short of a six pack… “Ah luv her, she's such a smart and purty woman…” Ah yes – ignorance truly can be bliss.

I like Sarah a lot better than anyone in Obama's administration, including Obama.

Obama's administration staff reads like a laundry list of anti-capitalist, socialist-leaning individuals who believe in anything but personal responsibility. Their view is that bigger government with more control over the private sector is the answer to this country's problems. The more the public realizes this and all that it entails, the more the public will seek people like Palin and will realize that she has a lot more to offer the American people than just speeches and more government.

Kay below is a perfect example. They say a whole lot of stuff that sound OK but when you actually look for the facts they are no where to be found. The GOP is just disgustingly out of touch.

It's led and left now with a bunch of anti-intellectuals that seem to prefer our country to be run by an illegal plumber or a beauty queen that took 6 years to get a journalism degree. It's time the party abandoned the morons that want to teach our children the universe was created 6000 years ago. The conservative of today seems only conservative with three things, intelligence, reason and compassion. Opposition orientation is not a charter, or a policy position.

I'm tired of British owned corporations like New Corp (Fox News) having so much control over the US information marketplace. Frankly, I think they have too much control over US media already, but oh well, greed is legal and if the Brits want to buy up America and take over who am I to stop it.

I don't know why, but it seems the Brits want to make sheep out of us through propaganda campaigns broadcasted through AM radio and cable TV. Palin fans love it.

The only way that she will EVER be a candidate for President is if she runs on the ticket of the Tea Party. Which she probably will.

apostasyusa,

Thank you for being such a voice of enlightenment. Your moral correctness show us all the light. When issues like health care, climate change, and handling of terrorists is in play, we can look to you and Democrats as the moral beacon to guide us. Those who disagree simply are wrong, have no standing, and cannot possibly hold the same intellectual water.

Thankfully, intellectual powerhouses like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Emanuel, Waxman, Frank, and others can do the thinking for all of us. When confronted with opposition from the American people, they rightly push ahead, knowing that in the end they know what's best for everyone. Some will say this is hubris, but I know better because their moral positioning is non-debatable.

The “anti-intellectuals” on the right are of course foolish to align themselves with everyday Americans—a bunch of gun toting neanderthals that want to raid every abortion clinic and bludgeon to death everyone with an iron-clad bible, dispose of every science book that speaks of evolution or any science whatsoever, bomb and invade every Muslim country with a big Texas flag painted on each tank and a healthy sized armada of oil workers quickly following suit.

God help us all if active citizens like the Tea Party or concerned independents ever get their wishes heard.

Unless of course we're talking about the future. Like 2505 & 'Idiocracy'

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/

Narrator: “The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.”

As MUST see for anyone that wants to see what the future is for a country that scorns education, encourages the dumbing down of the population, and thinks that everything will be all better when IDIOTS like them/Sister Sarah get to run the show.

President Camacho: “Sh*t. I know sh*t's bad right now, with all that starving bullsh*t, and the dust storms, and we are running out of french fries and burrito coverings. But I got a solution.
South Carolina Representative # 1: That's what you said last time, dipsh*t!
South Carolina Representative # 2: Yeah, I got a solution, you're a dick! South Carolina, what's up! “

And this Mike Judge film was released in 2006 mind you, 2 years prior to the rise of Sister Sarah, and 3 years in advance of SC Joe 'You Lie' Wilson.

I realize this 'information' is likely going to be 'wasted', on the Palinistas but, for the record, you are 'wrong' about the 'goals' of Socialism:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism

“refers to the various theories of economic organization advocating common or direct worker ownership and administration of the means of production and allocation of resources, and a society characterized by equal access to resources for all individuals with a method of compensation based on the amount of labor expended.[1][2][3]“

“Most socialists share the view that capitalism unfairly concentrates power and wealth among a small segment of society that controls capital and derives its wealth through exploitation, creates an unequal society, does not provide equal opportunities for everyone to maximize their potential[4] and does not utilize technology and resources to their maximum potential nor in the interests of the public.[5]“

And, furthermore, 'socialism' isn't a 'bad' thing/slur to many VERY happy people around the world like the folks in the 44 countries that have better infant mortality rates than the US: CIA's #s:

http://j.mp/1wlmRH

'We're Number 45, We're Number 45' sounds like the kind of thing an IDIOT would be 'proud' of. The Swedes, Brits, Swiss, Taiwanese, Canadians, Dutch, Germans, Japanese, French, Norwegians, et al are ALL probably much happier with a)universal health care 2) the fact the more of their kids LIVE at birth than #45 United States.

US ? 49th behind all those 'socialist' countries. 'Come on, let's hear it IDIOTS: 'We're # 49, We're # 49! (Shouted to the chorus of 'Drill Baby Drill').

Seriously you Palinistas are so stupid, you stink.

Nice criterion by which to judge a politician.

Considering that more people have likely heard of Sarah Palin than David Weigel, you probably are correct.

Gobbledegook or Jibber-Jabber (Early Cyle of Squidbillies).

Anyone who 'thinks' (used very loosely) that the 'stream-of-(UN)consciousness' that rattles around in the 'hairdos' (empty) head and comes out her lipstick platform is 'straight talk' is OBVIOUSLY on something(s) like the over/under medicated old fool, John Sydney McSame III.

These folks are more than likely tranqed-up BIG time with a combo of anti-depressants, stimulants, sleep aids, and erectile dysfunctional meds.

Just keep 'em away from automobles, heavy equipment, and the reigns of power and we'll be ok.

The brits got you fooled. They knew they could at least make fools out of the Party of idealogical freaks, the Republican Party of the USA.

It's sad to hear how much power and influence Fox News a British owned Corporation has over so many Americans. They are not he only one. Ever heard of Sandline International? Oh wait I'm sorry it's called Aegis Defense Services now. Americans give billions to them too.

Sarah Palin's Nashville speech was the most significant oration of the 21st century.

In all seriousness, a good mother would not have chosen to run as a v.p. candidate in 2008 as she did. There she was with a four month old infant with special needs, a pregnant unwed 17 year old daughter and two other minor children at home. I'm all for women having equal opportunity, however, there are some times where you have to put your children first and this should have been one of them. She was warned about the press and how they would investigate her past and present. She also had a daughter who complained about all of Alaska knowing she was pregnant yet her mother was willing to throw her under the bus by introducing her to all of America as an unwed 17 year old girl. There is no shame for either of them that she was pregnant. These things can happen and do happen in the best of families. She also had a four month old child with Down's syndrome, who she knew would require intensive special therapy for the first five years of his life if he was to develop to his full potential. While one parent will suffice, two parents working as a team is what's best for the child. She should have said thank you for the compliment in offering her the position of V.P. candidate, politely refused, explained her reasons why and gone back to her position of governor and mother. After all, she was only 45 years old with excellent poll numbers, in the process of becoming known to the D.C. movers and shakers, and would be able to work on the areas in which she was deficient such as foreign and economic policy. Truly intelligent people should be able to recognize their own shortcomings and do something to change them if they wish.. Was she oblivious to her daughter's embarrassment and pain, her son's needs and the needs of her family? She had a husband who was known to be gone for days at a time due to his job so the children were already being short-changed in the parenting department.

Instead, she went forth, oblivious to her family's desires, her own deficiencies and when she failed, proceeded to try to blame it all on everyone else. Strong women can accept their own mistakes, learn from them and move forward. The GOP cannot afford another one of her mistakes. I don't think she'll run, to be honest, but the sooner that becomes known, there goes the donations to the PAC, the demands for her speeches and decreased times on FOX. She'll hold out on a decision as long as possible to make the money while it's available. However, these polls indicate that a large number of people are aware of what she's really about and it's highly unlikely she's going to change their minds. That idea of “strong common sense, conservative solutions” needs to be expanded upon and she has neither the ability to do so or the desire.
