Skip to comments.Poll postulates Palin popularity plunges precipitously
Posted on 08/12/2009 6:26:32 PM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist
Sarah Palin, the wife of a popular Arctic snowmachine racer who also once served as Alaska's first female governor, seems to find her own popularity plummeting.
According to numbers atop a new poll by CNN/Opinion Research the popular hockey mom's favorable rating in a survey of at least 1,136 adult Americans has plunged seven points since May. A significant drop.
She went from 46% favorable down to 39% a few days after she experienced premature resignation and left office 17 months early to save Alaska from more partisan attacks on her. And, who knows, maybe plan some future political activity in other states.
Palin, who plucked Sen. John McCain from political obscurity in Arizona as her GOP presidential ticket running mate last summer, enjoyed her highest popularity right after a rousing speech at the Republican convention in early September. She was at 57% then, but much higher among Republicans and conservatives.

Aw, come on!
The LA Times wouldn’t lie, would they?
Far be it from us to wish you a long walk off a short pier.
They thought they had knocked her down. Then she gave her bear speech and came roaring after them.
Aw, come on!
The LA Times wouldn’t lie, would they?
A CNN poll!? ROTFLMAO!!! Now that’s funny. You’re never going to see the truth in a state run CNN poll. CNN “polls” are for instructional purposes only. They are meant to tell the dumbasses in this country what to think.
Leave beckett alone! He has his sensors wired to Sarah Palin at all times! He knows what he's talking about!
I'll have to remember that one ...
But she resigned though, where in that oath did it say she has to serve out the entire term? As opposed to having her criss-cross the country while collecting a check as Governor? Which option do you think is more honorable?
There was a time when conservatives could be counted upon to think clearly and critically on matters of moral obligation
In her case, which she did. She put the people of her state ahead of whatever future ambitions she may have had and gracefully stepped down. Again, as opposed to just "milking it" and gaming the system. A politician who steps down to fight for what's right. When was the last time you heard of that?
even if it requires a silly, weak, dishonest and disjointed resignation speech that basically sold out the conservative principles of perseverance, courage, honesty and fortitude.
She served with honor and integrity, she stepped down for the good of the state. You conveniently forget that she resigned from the state energy commission when she saw corruption. She could have easily stayed and looked the other way but she took on the corruption.
Shes a pitbull with lipstick. Uh-huh. Right. Keep on telling yourself that.
Yes, she is. For a private citizen, she continues to get massive media coverage and has a huge grassroots following. Name another Republican that has what she has.
I see a train wreck approaching for Palin, not a triumphant march to the White House.
That's just your opinion. Remember, that she's not a declared candidate of any sorts, so speculation about her chances in 2012 are moot at this point. I'll say this: I support her goals of bringing back government to the people and whatever else she does.
In a million years Reagan would never have dreamed of walking out on a job he took an oath to fulfill. In fact, the contrast between Reagan and Palin goes directly to my point in an earlier post. Palin conservatives appear unable to think clearly about moral obligation, an inability which Reagan never suffered for one minute of his life.
You're obviously a tad p-ed off...
Personal prudence prevents prolonging perpetual pronouncement pertaining previous proclamations. ;-)
I'm sure we'll all be spending quite a bit time discussing the popularity of someone "whose fifteen minutes are up."
If you really feel it needs to be said, it can't be true.
Pusillanimous publishers print pugilistic Palin piece.
LOL. Palin has more of these qualities in her little finger than all the toady politicians combined. She has just taken ownership of the Health Reform issue while many of the "leaders" were quibbling or hiding.
I take my hat off to you, sir.
I kowtow to the master. ROFLMAO!
"Palin, who plucked Sen. John McCain from political obscurity in Arizona as her GOP presidential ticket running mate last summer,..."
These people are psychopaths...
Re: #57 - I think you need to fit the word “poltroon” in there somewhere.
All right. So who do you favor?
From the LA Times...are they still in business(chuckle). The same people who called O “the magic negro”. The same people who withheld the videotape of O at a party for a terrorist in Chicago, where there was a dance troop of muslim boys who did a dance simulating beheadings of Americans and Jews. The LA Times....blech! Only good for lining small pet cages to catch the doo doo.
All the libs are still agitated by Sarah, and that can only mean they fear her. The grassroots support for her is astounding. She is us, we are her. It’s about time we could vote for someone like us instead of an elite blowhard who never had a real job. Someone who has gotten their hands dirty doing real work. Someone brave enough to field dress a moose. She’s got more brass than half the men in the country. Liberal men know that. They tremble at the thought of her as president. She is on a mission from God. Where He will take her is anyone’s guess, but she is going someplace important to our Republic. To the White House Sarah! To the White House!
Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t read the source, just went off half-cocked on a rant. Oh well. The headline and the main paragraphs of the article is all most people would see. If his point is that this is bunk, the writer needs to get to the point right away.
The noun or adjective? ;)
In your dreams, and Obama's, as well. Your saying so, doesn't make it so. When did you get the title of "American Electorate Spokesperson"? She's not going anywhere but up!
Sarah Palin, excerpted from 2008 Convention speech-
"* This is a man [Barack Obama] who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word victory except when hes talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed when the roar of the crowd fades away when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponents plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after hes done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger take more of your money give you more orders from Washington and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. ...
A CNN poll, wow, they probably polled those who work for CNN. May as well post a poll regarding Palin run by the reliable pollster David Axelrod.
Oh, those sneaky medias, leaving such info till the end of the story like that. And this.
fervent fear of that fearless femme fosters false fantasies of her falling fame.
Liberalism = Steal, Kill, Destroy = Barry
Conservatism = Life, Life more abundantly, Freedom = Sarah
I was thinking of the (plural) noun, but I trust your abilities - use whichever you think fits the best. :-)
Publishing poltroons pretend public political preoccupation pertaining pulchritudinous Palin.
Thank you, thank you very much! Viva la Free Republic!
Obama was at 65-29 in May, now he’s at 53-40 in Gallup. His decline is even worse in Rasmussen. If Palin’s decline is a serious drop, then what is Obama’s? SO far he’s worse at this point than W, Bush41, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, LBJ, Kennedy, Ike, basically every President ever except Clinton. Way to go, Barry.
