Default Palin more favorable than Obama?

Palin Power: Fresh Face Now More Popular Than Obama, McCain

A week ago, most Americans had never heard of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Now, following a Vice Presidential acceptance speech viewed live by more than 40 million people, Palin is viewed favorably by 58% of American voters. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% hold an unfavorable view of the self-described hockey mom.

The figures include 40% with a Very Favorable opinion of Palin and 18% with a Very Unfavorable view. Before her acceptance speech, Palin was viewed favorably by 52%. A week ago, 67% had never heard of her.

The new data also shows significant increases in the number who say McCain made the right choice and the number who say Palin is ready to be President. Generally, John McCain's choice of Palin earns slightly better reviews than Barack Obama's choice of Joe Biden.

Perhaps most stunning is the fact that Palin's favorable ratings are now a point higher than either man at the top of the Presidential tickets this year. As of Friday morning, Obama and McCain are each viewed favorably by 57% of voters. Biden is viewed favorably by 48%.

Yeah, wait until they figure out that she supported the "Bridge to Nowhere," that she thinks the war in Iraq is a "Holy War," that she tried to ban books from her local library, that she abuses power by firing people based on family affairs - instead of job performace, that she has hired lobbiest to attempt to get earmarks for her state of Alaska, that she didn't even know what the VP does until a month ago...

Everyone loves a pretty face at first. Too bad she has no experience on foreign policy, and the experience she does have suggests that she is a right-wing, religious fundamentalists power abuser.

Amen. It scares the hell out of me that she's a heartbeat from the Presidency. And McCain could go at any moment. He's old as hell.

The difference is, the label of Palin as a religious fundamentalist is rooted in fact. The Obama-terrorism link is rooted in "smear and fear" tactics.

LOL @ mush.

Even though he wasn't on the national scene back then I think I would have liked the Obama who hated God better than how he rolls now.

What has she specifically said about Iraq?

I think it's a Holy War myself.

EDIT:

I'm sorry, but I chuckled when I read this one from CK...

Everyone loves a pretty face at first. Too bad she has no experience on foreign policy...

Lightning had to strike ya after that one.

Damn, talk about a crazy journey; one day you are doing news for a local TV station and 20 years later you are a candidate for vice president of the United States.
