Palin’s Favorables Nose Dive

The more that Americans see and hear Sarah Palin, the less we like her according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Palin is not qualified to be president, according to 70% of those questioned. Her numbers don’t improve noticeably when only Republicans are polled.

The Post reports just 45% of conservatives consider Palin qualified to move into the Oval Office. Last November, 66% of conservatives said she was qualified.

Only 37 percent of Republicans have a “strongly favorable” view of Palin. Among all Americans, her overall favorable/unfavorable split is 37/55, the lowest it’s been since ABC and the Post added her to national polls in Sept. 2008, when John McCain made Palin his runningmate on the GOP ticket.

Palin continues to be popular with Tea Baggers and FOX News hardcore followers, such as those who support Mormon Glenn Beck’s show. This loud but easily misled group continues to direct its anger that a black man is president at the so-called “elite,” which Palin and Beck mock using short words and phrases they and this group can understand.

    No, Mike, we leave racist nastiness like yours on the board in order to expose the real motives of right wingers.

    See, normal Americans know that the economic crisis that cost your son and daughter their homes was created by George W. Bush and the Republicans who ran Congress from 1994 until 2006.

    The Republicans’ motive was to turn the wealth and power of this great country over to corporations, and they couldn’t have done it without convincing middle-class and poor half-wits to vote against their own self-interests.

    People like you only have yourselves to blame. Too bad everybody else has to suffer because you are so easily duped.
