Skip to comments.AlaskaPoll: Palin at 61% Unfavorable

Sarah Palin may be having some trouble with the voting demographic from her own home state of Alaska. According to results released Wednesday, the Dittman Research Corporations AlaskaPoll showed the former Governor and potential 2012 Presidential candidate rated at 61% unfavorably by a survey taken between March 3 and March 17th of approximately 400 Alaskans.
What do you expect? They voted Myrcowski in for God’s sake.
They also voted Palin in at some point. It’s a notable poll result simply because these people that once liked her now seem not to.
They set out to trash her and they did.
Can’t underestimate the power of the dirty rat media.
Wow - 400 Alaskans! 400 Alaskans surveyed WHERE, a gay bar and a pro choice ralley? That “survey” isn’t even worth mentioning, unless they want to discredit her.
Why, the last poll run in the lower 48 had her “would not vote for” at 26 to 30 %; and she has dropped in the polls over all since then?????
so says one that claims that Palin left the governorship for money and thinks Romney is one of the types need in the GOP
Depends on what the wording of the question was or questions, what market was surveyed and who.
This seems strange to me. At the time she was added to the ticket, she had a 90 per cent favorability rating in Alaska. OF course, as she became more partisan in her new role, it was understanding that Alaska Democrats would start to shun her.
She literally quit being their governor. Why is it BS?
Really, how so?
Just listened to the damn Contessa Brewer on MSNBC. They are doing and E bio on Palin tonite and she conveniently took the task of comparing palin to Pee WEE Herman. Contessa is a bitch. We all need to bombard her now via email. Piss me off.
Another poorly sampled, poorly weighted poll geared to provide desired results to the MSM.
“They set out to trash her and they did.
Cant underestimate the power of the dirty rat media”
And the GOP/RINO establishment.
Please read article from an Alaskan:
“Newsflash: Poorly Conducted Alaskan Poll Produces Poor Results
The Dittman Research & Communications Corporation, let out a doosie today.”
Better find a bunker somewhere quick.......And don’t forget to line it with asbestos.
If I were polled on this question, I would answer the same way just to skew the results.
Actually, a sample size of 400 in a state that only has a population of (roughly) 700K is better than almost all national polls, which generally never have a sample size greater than 1K in a country of over 310M.
Also, this poll isn't at all out of line from a similar poll taken by Rasmussen last May.
Shortly after Palin quit as governor, her approval rating in AK plummeted, and it has never recovered.
If she is that unpopular, quitting as gov would have raised her poll numbers. If folks are unhappy that she quit as gov,
that means they liked her as gov. Depends on how the poll was worded.
I deal with the people on MSNBC by ignoring them - they are absurd.
This poll is full of liberals crab; just flush it down the toilet.
I agree, here is a similar one from several months ago;
I cant do it. Its my mission today to rip them a new one. Sorry.
Of course you are right about the GOP/RINO establishment’s role in trashing Sarah - how could I forget them?
Glad she laid into them in her speech in Wisconsin. However, because she did this I suppose she has already decided not to run.
It’s basically a “hit piece”. Yet even some Freepers are taken in by the headline.
From a link I found;
Veco routinely paid for candidates’ polling
MURKY LEGALITY: When, why, for whom determine lawfulness.

In April 2006, then-Gov. Frank Murkowski’s popularity sagged among the worst of any governor in the nation, and the state waited to see if he would run for re-election.
Anchorage pollster David Dittman — who later became Murkowski’s campaign strategist — said he came up with an idea. While everyone was mad at Murkowski, Dittman would conduct a poll asking people about good things Murkowski had done as governor.
The poll cost $20,000. Dittman said in an interview last week that, as best as he can remember, Murkowski’s chief of staff told him to send the bill to Veco Corp.
Wait. Is that legal?
Phooey. I´ll be voting for her anyway, even if I have to write her in.
I’m just saying, she quit, regardless of the reason for quitting. That may be reflected in her AK poll numbers. The RINO Murk’s write-in victory was basically a referendum on Palin, IMO.
Hit Poll PING!
Thanks much for the link, Rational Thought.
If she "quit," as you say, then why are we having this discussion?
More like line it with bulls***. Check out post 19, the poll is garbage, and in your typical PDS fashion, you lap it up and ask for seconds.
Because it may help explain her unfavorable rating in Alaska. I know why she quit; she didn’t quit on me, though, so I don’t care that she quit. A citizen of Alaska may feel differently than I do.
This thread is about her unfavorables in Alaska, right? I’m offering up one explanation for the high unfavorable number.
I have always thought that the term “useless idiots” can apply not just to people who unthinkingly allow themselves to be manipulated by communists/marxists to their ends, but also to people who buy into what the MSM wishes them to believe.
It is so easy for them. All they need is time and pliable brains of mush.
Garbage in garbage out.
“Palins highest approval rating was around 86% as Governor of the state and 88% as the first nominated female candidate for the Vice Presidency” what about the dem female vp.
If the article has that wrong then it and the poll are most likely BS.
Bought and paid for by Lisa Murkowski PAC.
>> Actually, a sample size of 400 in a state that only has a population of (roughly) 700K is better than almost all national polls...
Does the same reasoning apply when polling 1 person in a State of 1750?
“They” had help from the Dems...
Murkowski LOST the primary... only when she had an illegal write-in campaign and the Dems wrote her in (their candidate was toast) and then some slick vote count irregularity and voila.
“We” (AK Pubs), did not vote her in...
Her high approval ratings as governor were not a result of polls from this Dimwit outfit or any ONE source.
re: ‘If the article has that wrong then it and the poll are most likely BS.’
I see that the Huckaliar/Obama freaky fans and PDS crowd have contaminated FR again.
It’s going to be fun watching thier heads explode when Palin wins...and she WILL WIn.
GAME ON. I’ll be voting for Sarah Palin, Liberty, our Constitution and American Exceptionalism.
