Sarah Palin, America’s Most Popular Governor
Well, not quite anymore. A new Hays Research poll from Alaska has Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R) popularity falling precipitously from the mid-80s to only 54 percent, with 42 percent of Alaskans saying they have a “negative” view of her.
Some popularity drop-off isn’t uncommon right now, as states battle with their budgets, but Palin has really not adjusted well to her new role as a national figure from an obscure state.
