Barbie - Totally Toxic
Okay, here's still more evidence,
as if you needed it, that Sarah Palin is increasingly toxic to voters
who reside outside the Palin Nation bubble.
Pew Research just released a new poll finding that more than twice as
many Americans see a
Palin endorsement as a negative for a Congressional candidate than view
it as a positive.
The numbers: Thirty eight percent say they are less likely to back a
Congressional candidate if
Palin "campaigns on their behalf." Less than half that amount, 18
percent, say they are more likely
to do so. Forty two percent say it would make no difference, only
slightly more than see it as a downer.
No one is contesting the fact that Palin is a major draw among GOP
primary voters. But the larger
story here -- one that goes directly to the heart of her presidential
aspirations -- is that she's successfully
tightening her emotional grip on her devoted legions of supporters at
the expense of just about everyone else.
Far more see her as a turn-off than as a turn-on.
Palin supporters get very, very angry when you point this out.
But the evidence is overwhelming at this point...
Maybe she'll get the nomination in 2012.
Then she'd have to do real
interviews, not just puff pieces for FOX News.
If Palin runs, that'd be great for me but a disaster for
America if she wins.
