In a recent report from Politics Daily (Sarah Palin’s Unfavorability Numbers Hit New High, Survey Finds [read here]), correspondent Christopher Weber writes:
“The number of Americans viewing Sarah Palin unfavorably has hit the highest point since she burst onto the national stage over two years ago…. The Gallup survey conducted in the days after the Nov. 2 election found more than half of Americans-52%-hold a negative opinion of the former Alaska governor. Only 40% viewed her favorably.”
Although the title of Weber’s article at Politics Daily is favorable enough, the percentage of Americans who view Sarah Palin with disfavor is shocking.
Only 52%? Really? Ms. Palin, with all respect, is a madwoman. And 40% of people in the poll viewed her as favorable. She knows nothing about politics. She seems to only know about gratuitous publicity. 97% of Americans should be viewing Sarah Palin as unfavorable. And that’s only to take into account a 3% margin error.
Unless we’re talking about shipping Sarah Palin to the moon, I can’t comprehend who’s voting her as favorable.
The numbers get a little better later in the article.
“She might have a harder time in the general election,” Weber writes. “Gallup found 81% of Democrats and 53% of independents viewed her as unfavorably-while fewer than four in 10 view her favorably.”
All right, that’s better.
She’s a madwoman!
