A Bloomberg News poll released Thursday shows trouble for the potential presidential candidacy of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
A vast majority of respondents viewed Palin unfavorably. Sixty percent had an unfavorable view of Palin, compared with only 28 percent with a favorable one. President Obama had a personal favorability rating of 55 percent with 41 percent viewing him unfavorably.
Two other potential Republican candidates for the presidency, businessman Donald Trump and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, had low favorability ratings.
Trump was viewed favorably by 37 percent of respondents and unfavorably by 43 percent. Gingrich was viewed favorably by 28 percent and unfavorably by 40 percent.

Bloomberg? nuff said.
let me guess.....they polled the splunkers at so-ho.
Bloomberg News poll? Who’d they poll, the hoipolli at the swanky bistros in Manhattan?
She running and is going to win ......she pretty much spilled the beans to Hannity that she is going to run and there is nothing you can do about it
For the most part, this will be easy to overcome. The only folks who are incorrigible are the misogynists and the pro-aborts.
I wonder how reliable the Bloomberg poll is? Probably not very.
ALL POLLS ARE PROPAGANDA.. even when they favor your position..
“Favorability ratings” don’t mean jack in a country that will elect a Marxist/communist Kenyan. The only thing that matters is who can come up with the most money. The White House is theirs for the buying. One only has to decide how much they are willing to pay for it.
Good. She debates almost as well as Joe Biden.
Which category would you place the OP in?
She’s done it to herself. She’s massively overexposed and she doesn’t wear well. Every time you turn on Fox, there she is mouthing off about something. My mother had a favorite saying about obnoxious people—”fools’ names and fools’faces always seen in public places.”
Palin doesn’t know when to shut up. She gushes verbiage like a fire hose gushes water. In interviews with admiring questioners like Hannity (the only kind she appears with), she babbles and blurts out whatever thoughts enter her head. It’s not indicative of a thoughtful, deliberate person who rations her words carefully so that they have weight and import. I think Palin will eventually fade away as the novelty continues to wear off.
Another article posted earlier today about the Bloomberg poll and Palin’s unfavs if anyone is interested.....
Here's some mouthwash, from the internals of your piss-poor poll.
1,001 random adults.
Not likely voters.
44% of those responding choose high-speed rail over cutting taxes.
47% think that pulling all our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan would make a large difference in the federal deficit.
The percentage who think repealing Obamacare would make a very large, very small, fairly small, little difference in the deficit are 28%, 21%, 18%, 24% respectively.
72% favor repealing all foreign aid.
66% oppose cutting urban renewal programs; 77% oppose cutting Head Start, No Child Left Behind, and the like.
62% oppose cutting the EPA, but 59% want to remove tax breaks for households making > $250,000 / year.
And a large plurality -- 49% -- want to cut defense spending as opposed to Medicare or Social Security.
Where did they take this poll, Harvard?
So yeah, I guess this is a representative sample...of Obaama voters.
How many of her Alaska debates have you seen. Zero. Thought so.
She could give Jesse Jackson and Chuckie Schumer a run for their money to dive in front of a camera.
She was really good tonight. If she can stay on message like she did tonight and just keep hammering those points without the sideshow stuff and wo the tendency to ramble, she can do much better over time I believe.
If she gets a speech coach as well as keeps solely on the economic and energy issues, she might be able to rehab herself.
