‘America’s Hottest Governor’ No More
The final Hays Research Poll on former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) finds her popularity with Alaskans tumbling just into negative territory; 48 percent of voters view her favorably, 47 percent view her unfavorably. It’s a strikingly polarized survey, with a similar one-point gap between the people who view her “very unfavorably” and “very favorably”—31-30.
Before she was picked as Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) running mate, Palin’s favorable rating was at 80 percent.
