ONLY 50% of the Tea Party want her to run.

What this poll tells me is the people are NOT undecided about Sarah Palin. Only 25% are undecided in their opinion of her, and the party is split on whether they like or dislike her. Among all voters, it is worse than Gingrich (and that is bad).

She is a divider, not a uniter. We've had enough division over the past 24 years.

Even though Romney only has a +1 favorable among all voters, he has more undecideds in his camp. It really means that the independents and undecided voters are sitting back and watching the field.

Obviously, to me, the rest of the field are undecided because they are mostly unknown.

It is quite stunning that 50% of Tea Party Supporters do not want Palin to run. (Count me in that group.) She might be intelligent, but she can't win because she would rally the Democrats.

This doesn't look good for Palin either.
