PPP Polling: Only in Massachusetts is Sarah Palin viewed less favorable THAN ALASKA

PPP has done some analysis of Sarah Palin's Favorability numbers and they're not good.
It's a well known fact that Sarah Palin is the most unpopular major political figure in the country...one thing that may be less well known is that one of the states where voters have the dimmest view of her is her own home state of Alaska.

We've polled Palin's favorability in ten states over the last couple months. In Alaska just 33% of voters have a favorable opinion of her to 58% with a negative one. The only place where fewer voters see her positively than her own home state is dark blue Massachusetts.

Again I point out, What good is winning the nomination if you can't win the general?

What's the party breakdown of this poll?

"What's the party breakdown of this poll?"

===========

It's not one poll. It's an analysis of the last 10 PPP polls. You would need to get that info from each individual poll. My guess is it's a combination of REPS/DEMS/IND.

"Again I point out, What good is winning the nomination if you can't win the general?" Haha, I for one am not worried about Alaska's 3 points. Just because she has an unfavorable rating now does not mean she would lose an election. After all, Mr. Obama's favorable ratings are not exactly anything to brag about.

Interesting how not long ago, anti-Palinites would jump up and down and claim voters vote, not favorable ratings. My how they changed their tune all of a sudden. For now, there is certainly enough people that like Mrs. Palin that she can win with the anti-Palin vote split down the middle between Mr. Romney and Mr. Huckabee. Give me the popcorn and fasten your seat-belts.

OJ,

"Haha, I for one am not worried about Alaska's 3 points."

This tells me the following:

1. If Palin had KEPT OUT of the Alaska Senatorial race, we might have had a Senator Miller.

2. If she's so wonderful, wouldn't her HOME STATE show it. Check the PPP MA poll, Romney is very well liked.

"1. If Palin had KEPT OUT of the Alaska Senatorial race, we might have had a Senator Miller." Yes, the key word is "might"


"2. If she's so wonderful, wouldn't her HOME STATE show it. Check the PPP MA poll, Romney is very well liked." Many great political and religious leaders throughout history were not popular in their hometowns. As for Mr. Romney, he actually left the state a very unpopular man. Only now, are his numbers improving some. Even though Mr. Romney does better than the other candidates in the Liberal state of MA, he still gets beat by Mr. Obama. So much for winning the general election.

Palin Loves Alaska, But the Feeling Isn't Mutual

If you read the whole article Anonymous, it is not exactly complimentary of Mr. Romney and Mr. Pawlenty.

WOW!

It's clear that Palin would never survive in a thinner field of candidates.

She has her base and that's it.

And she's done so much for Alaska.

Served half-a-term as Governor, her show has brought so much positive attention to Alaska (HaHaHaHa!)

I can't understand why she's not loved there.

"And she's done so much for Alaska." Bingo, you are catching on finally.

OJ,

I don't think that's what Bosman was saying.

I think it's called, tongue-n-cheek!
