Posted on 01/21/2011 4:10:24 AM PST by Erik Latranyi
Washington (CNN) -- OK, you've got Palin fatigue. Not to worry. So does much of the country: The latest CNN poll shows that 56 percent of Americans view her unfavorably.
More damaging, though, is this: Sarah Palin's unfavorable rating among women has gone up 10 points. And 59 percent of those all-important independent voters don't like her -- and that's up a stunning 14 points in just a few months.
You might argue it's because of the debate surrounding the Tucson shootings -- specifically, Palin's tone-deaf response to the unfair charges that she was somehow responsible for a deranged shooter's state of mind. And that could well be part of it. But there's more: She's completely overstayed her welcome.

I happened to hear that vile old skank Joan Rivers attack Palin on TV. It was disgusting. I don’t know what it is that drives liberals to such a frenzy of hatred against her, but she must be doing something right.
Perhaps this means THEY will stop talking about her.
I’m growing tired of CNN and the rest of the Democrat Media Complex’s propaganda they pass off as “reporting.”
OK, you’ve got Palin fatigue. Not to worry. We in the media have PDS to spare, and intend to spare no expense at proving it!
Conservatives would be better advised to figure out what it is that the so-called "independents" don't like about her and, if possible, fix it. But on thread after thread, I keep telling people that I work with college students every day, and none of the conservatives kids love her. They are all jazzed about most other conservatives, and even many who are RINOS, but for whatever reason they are not excited about Palin. My take is that she's too close to their mother's age.
***She’s completely overstayed her welcome.***
The MSM plan is coming into focus.
For 2 years, these morons have depicted Sarah - in every possible negative way; in order to assassinate her character. It’s clear that tactic has not worked - so they now must bid farewell.
The bigger question is who cares about Gloria Borger?
At any rate, Sarah is a bit overexposed, there is some risk of people getting too much of her. I hope she tones things down going into 2012 in terms of reality shows, media circuses and so on - she needs to stick to looking serious and Presidential.
America needs someone exactly like here as President, I hope either it works out with Sarah, or there’s a brilliant bait and switch to her political/ethical/moral/leadership spirit twin (whoever that might be, I sure don’t see one among the current crop of GOP hopefuls).
the Left is scared diaperless by Sarah, or, for that matter, any heterosexual-supportive, family-supportive, church-supportive, constitution-supportive overachieving woman.
This poll is just more Leftist weasel runny rump snot. They can jam it back where they got it, and like it.
I can't wait until Sarah is our president, and she will be, by a landslide.
here = her. Maybe it was just wishful thinking.. ;-)
Well, anyone we have who is doing well is a threat to the libs! Maybe at least if they are busy attacking our Sarah, they are leaving the rest alone for now. Sadly all they do is attack and call names and charge us with racism. (even though there is only ONE race = the Human Race) Maybe they are so busy attacking Sarah, that they aren’t attacking Paul Ryan, Tim Scott, etc... yet.... Libs just make me SICK. I wish they would all crawl back under the rock they slivered out from under
HAHA, You lost!
They write a plethora of anti-Palin articles every day then cite polls on her popularity.
The MSM do love their self-fulfilling prophecies, don’t they?
(P.S.) Those college pukes represent about 2% of the vote in a national election. Can you say "irrelevant"?
And they still have to run bogus polls trying to prove she's unpopular. If they ran legitimate polls she would win.
That's what's really worrying them. They know the truth.
Someone is very scared of Sarah Palin. She must have turned down the usual bribe money.
“none of the conservatives kids love her.”
It is a pop culture thing.
Celebrities, teachers, the media..They all painted a bull’s eye on her, and have convinced the kids to hate her.
Ask any kid under 25 about Palin and they will go “YUK”.
It is the in thing to do now.
As for me, the more hate that I see, the more I believe that she would be the best POTUS of all the crowd.
Minds full of mush. Maybe Palin should say she smoked pot in order
to patronize those who are to lazy to Vote.
I've never met a Conservative college student. And if you're a superior
I would factor in the grade answer to any of your questions to them.
Bingo! The fact that they are constantly railing against her, shows that they are scared of her. The red-diaper-doper babies are part of the reason we ended up with the communist policies of late. The rest of the chilren thought that they were doing something historic in electing Barry, even though his past is very cloudy. Once they realize that BO has put them into so much debt that they cannot have everything they want, their thinking may change. The real rubber will meet the road when their children (our grandchildren) are under so much debt that they cannot afford a house because of hyper-inflation. If Sarah runs, and wins, she will most likely be another historic moment in American politics. My guess is that she’ll run in the future, but probably not in 2012.
What they really mean is that: "56 percent of CNN followers view her unfavorably."
Not exactly an earth-shattering revelation.
CNN poll. Who gives a hoot! Watch FOX if you want what is really happening. The liberal media can spin all they want. More people are getting their news from alternative sources and some day the liberal media will just be dinosaurs.
It’s not “chic” in liberal circles such as colleges and the bar scene to support Palin.
WTH? Capitulation does not represent conservative values.
Maybe you were confused and missed the RINO board.
Maybe you can you tell us why the 9/11 terrorists hated us so much, and
WHAT AMERICA DID WRONG?
I’ve had CNN fatigue for 20 years! That’s why I don’t watch it!
I am so looking forward to the inauguration of President Palin.
These whackadrones can’t seem to convince even themselves that they’re not living on Planet Palin . . .
***Its not chic in liberal circles such as colleges and the bar scene to support Palin.***
But they WOULD vote for Tina Fey;)
Wow, totally bass ackward.. Conservatives need to stand for something, not be wishy washy. Independents I.E. sheeple need to figure out who they are.
Kids that age don’t vote.
These lefty moonbat assclowns should stock up on mental depends. If nothing else, Gov Palin provides us with entertaining observations of the DIM/LIBs as they flail about. LIB/DIMs...you are going DOWN (through the ballot, of course). Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Agreed. Their irrational hatred is shocking.
That is odd, the lady’s I am around - including my wife - have become bigger supporters of late. My wife had been beaten down my a lefty friend of hers and the despicable media into not liking Palin, until the Palin Alaska show. Now, she is back on board.
I know some conservative women who do not like Palin. Deep down, it is because Palin is good-looking.
When I argue with them, I tell them that that is why I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, because she is not a hottie. That usually gets them thinking about their own position based on looks.
Which can roughly be translated into: 56 percent of liberals.
You might argue it’s because of the debate surrounding the Tucson shootings
I wouldn’t argue the point at all. Only deranged media whores, are still beating their wives and this dead horse. So you go from BushDS to PallinDS, nothing new under the sun.
I overheard different people talking about " lucky kids" They feel that the kids got some pretty good breaks because of their mom. Not my opinion but when you hear the same thing at different times by different people, I think there is something to it. I don't think the kids are getting that many breaks because they seem to be able to do well when on their own.
Palin is getting a lot of attention (and I believe the Libs are scared to death of her otherwise they would drop it). I can't imagine any of the other( considered "front runners") for the GOP being able to beat Obama. We can't have the MSM picking our primary winner like the last time. Its Palin all the way.
Give me time to get my tin foil hat adjusted.
“hope either it works out with Sarah, or theres a brilliant bait and switch to her political/ethical/moral/leadership spirit twin (whoever that might be, I sure dont see one among the current crop of GOP hopefuls).”
Take another look at Michelle Bachman.
It’s like a circle with the left.
Trash her. Push a poll. Trash her in the analysis of the poll.

Sorry, stopped reading after seeing this was sourced from CNN.
Have a great day!
The only thing I am Tired of is A-Holes telling me I am tired of something,or I Hate Someone I dont!
“Conservatives would be better advised to figure out what it is that the so-called “independents” don’t like about her and, if possible, fix it
Wow, totally bass ackward.. Conservatives need to stand for something, not be wishy washy. Independents I.E. sheeple need to figure out who they are.”
I agree. I’m drawn to Palin because, when I don’t hear a liar when she opens her mouth, as I do with just about every other politician I can think of (not to mention I happen to agree with what she says, of course!).
For Palin to “figure out” what she needs to do to appeal to “independents” suggests that she throw her own beliefs out the window and “moderate” herself to appeal to a bunch of goofballs who are probably too scared to vote for her anyway...and that’s exactly the WRONG thing to do because it IS dishonest.
And, of course, that touches on the big problem our party has. As Rush has said a number of times, if people in our party just stood up and said what they believe instead of worrying about what the deranged left and media is going to say about them, we’d win in a landslide. But they don’t.
Thankfully, Palin isn’t like them, and it looks like we might actually have a Presidential contender who isn’t just saying: “how can I make everyone like me TODAY?”.
Oh, you mean like the public has toward CNN?
Like maybe even when (PMS)NBC is beating youse guys?
Don't get too upset over this folks, cuz only about 64,127 people saw it anyway.
Those who hate Sarah Palin the most do so because of their own guilt. In her they find a reminder of their own failings and shortcomings; they strike out hatefully because of their guilt!
Like Shakespeare once said, or at least wrote, In time we hate that which we often fear.
