Posted on 01/15/2011 6:44:22 AM PST by Bigtigermike
A new national study among 1,437 self-reported Democrats, Republicans and Independents revealed that Americans indicated that Sarah Palin was more sincere and believable after viewing her speech in response to the shootings in Tucson.
The study was conducted during January 13-14 by HCD Research and reported on its MediaCurves.com® website, to obtain Americans perceptions of Sarah Palin after viewing a video of a speech she gave in response to the shootings in Tucson.
Respondents were asked to rate Sarah Palin on a scale from 1-7 regarding likeability, believability and sincerity, with 1 representing not at all strong in this attribute and 7 representing extremely strong in this attribute.
With the exception of likeability among Democrats, Palins attribute ratings increased among all parties after viewing her speech. The most notable increase was her sincerity ratings, which increased from 2.62 to 2.69 among Democrats, from 5.25 to 5.45 among Republicans and from 3.68 to 3.85 among Independents.
Here is the raw data. 81% of Republicans and 56% of independents concluded that the speech will help her image and 78% of Republicans and 54% of independents concluded that the speech will help her in a potential presidential run.

When Sarah Palin has eggs for breakfast, it's the end of her career in politics. It's just not presidential. And yet millions of people see her as our last best hope.
I really never thought about Palin, but since the huge slanders about her by the left since Saturday, I've taken more of a look at her.
I'd like to read some position papers from her though, rather than anecdotal writings.
BTW, Zero had no positions on anything and nothing other than his anecdotal bios and hagiographies by others. He remains a cypher reflecting only those positions of the DNC and, of course, his vacation locations.
This is good. I dont know much about the polling service but who cares. I do think the other side had over done it and people have a more sympathetic ear toward Palin because of it. Whew.
Media Curve is a big liberal focus group out of NJ I believe.......to me they are more accurate than Frank Luntz dail a meter focus group
She is indeed our best hope.
Thank God we actually have some depth on the bench now, so she is not our last hope. We have Bachmann, West, DeMint and others.
And if America really was in the tank and all these conservatives became somehow unavailable: I bet the Colossus himself would take a paycut and run for President. All he’d need is for Mark Steyn to run his show for eight years.
Did you vote for zero?
Wow. Then thats even better!!! Thanks for the info.
But, did all the participants in this survey get a souvenier T-shirt??
I really hope they work together and do not attack each other for personal gain. Seeing Bachmann and Palin fighting each other would really make me sad. But I trust that those who love this country will want the right thing done and will not necessarily put their own political careers as their only priority.
To find most of her op-eds and her facebook articles on various issues you may want to look at her facebook notes page (http://preview.tinyurl.com/4n9oh2h) and conservatives4palin.com.
Thanks, I’ll take a look
It’s queer and baffling. I’ve never seen such hatred and sheer unadulterated malice leveled at any public person, including Nixon and Bush.
This goes beyond reason.
Tell that to the Palin-bashers in the news media, whose only mission in life is to destroy her.
The American people as a whole, have more common sense and fair play in their pinkies then all the liberals in the country put together.
Earah Palin stands out in front of all the others because her beliefs are true and from the heart.
She would have never ever remotely tried in any shape form or permutation perversion had done a campaign rally on 6 coffins like obama did.
Expect no forgiveness and no favors after Sarah is inaugurated.
I think it’s motivated by the fear that she might beat them politically.
