Part of the reason for Palin’s lower number (40% approve BTW) is because alot of people dont know the REAL STORY behind the so called ethics investigations. Many people just read the headlines and dont bother to real inform themselves about what going on there.
The Washington Compost poll is RIDICULOUS. I look at the Rasmussen poll and see all I have to see. 70+ percent approval from the GOP, 20 percent approval from Dems, and rising poll numbers with Independents. Rasmussen is MUCH more reliable then a newspaper that is in the tank for Obama. What next, a Huffington Post poll LOL
Your point is well-taken. The media uses their skewed polls to drive a narrative because they know people just skim the headlines.
