A new statewide survey in Alaska shows President Obama beating Sarah Palin in her home state in a head-to-head matchup. Continue Reading
The poll, by Hayes Research Group, had a sample size of 500 likely voters and a 4.4-point margin-of-error.
Still, it showed Obama's support as stronger than Palin's in a horserace.
Some 34 percent said they felt "strong" in backing Obama, while 6 percent were "not so strong," and 2 percent were undecided but leaning toward him.
Palin, Alaska's former governor and the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, had 25 percent of likely voters saying they felt "strong" about supporting her, while 6 percent were "not so strong," and 5 percent were unsure but leaning toward her.
Still, there were a large number of undecided voters in the survey, with 7 percent saying they'd support another candidate, and 16 percent saying they remained undecided.

I get trashed for saying it, but Palin cannot beat Obama.
I don’t trust Politico.
lebron not too popular in cleveland. see what i am saying?
the only time a poll of 500 people matters is if there are only 1000 people to begin with
When reading “poll results,” it’s always best to keep in mind the old, old apothegm that, “There are lies, damned lies, and statistics.”
There’s no way to know how the five hundred test subjects were selected; one may be fairly certain, however, that they’re NOT “typical” voters.
In other words, this is absolute bunk.
Just back from that Hellhole. I can see why. It runs on Federal handouts and Oil.
AK apparently has a much higher concentration of retards than I thought.
Personally, I think “The Alaskans” pulled the pollsters leg. They must have loved it!!
So she had an 88% approval rating while governor and now she couldn’t beat a slow motion train wreck. This just doesn’t smell quite right.
“The poll, by Hayes Research Group, had a sample size of 500 likely voters and a 4.4-point margin-of-error. “
500 voters from the University of Alaska in Anchorage?
Isn't this outfit a completely discredited polling company?
There is only one way to determine if Mrs. Palin is a viable candidate for President, and that is if she runs.
Until then it is all speculation and wild assumptions based on worthless polling data.
You fell through a wormhole to an alternate universe — one where Alaska is a hellhole, rather than the paradise it is in this universe.
Oooh, 500 likely voters. I’m so impressed. Remember the polls that showed Hillary Clinton as the shoo-in Democrat nominee? I do.
You won’t get trash for saying Palin can’t beat Obama because most already know you support “somebody else” based on your previous posts and you don’t necessarily like Palin anyway
Just someone in Obamas propaganda machine spreading disinformation....
