    I find it pretty funny that they even bother to measure "favorables" on someone like this.

    Of course I say, what favorables?

    CNN Poll: Favorable view of Palin dipping
    Posted: August 12th, 2009 06:20 PM ET

    From CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser


    The favorability of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is down in a new CNN poll out Wednesday.
    WASHINGTON (CNN) – Americans appear to be souring on Sarah Palin, according to a new national poll.

    Thirty-nine percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday have a favorable opinion of the former Alaska governor and last year's Republican vice presidential nominee. That's down seven points from a poll conducted in May, and it's also nine points lower than the 48 percent who now say they now view Palin unfavorably. Forty-three percent viewed Palin negatively in May.

    "Most of that change has come among Republicans and conservatives," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "GOP voters still like Palin — two-thirds continue to have a favorable view of her — but she is not as wildly popular among GOPers as she was in the spring, when eight in ten Republicans had a favorable view of her."

    It's unclear if the drop in Palin's rating is due to her resignation as Alaska governor, a year and a half before her first term ends, or if anything else she has done is contributing to the dip in her numbers. The poll was conducted July 31 through August 3, before national coverage of Palin's stinging criticism of President Barack Obama's health care reform proposals.

    .WASHINGTON, Aug 6, 2009 (AFP) – US President Barack Obama's approval rating has slumped to 50 percent, the lowest since his inauguration, according to a poll released Thursday on the eve of his 200th day in office.

    Everyone has to deal with ratings but what does it really mean. Her rating is higher than his and he is just the president.

    Um, his "rating" is far higher than hers, read the articles. More Americans still see him as favorable. Most see her as disfavorable. Besides, his is the one that counts. He was elected..... and fortunately she wasn't.

    Out today Obama's rating drops to 47%. With 53% of our country not backing the president. I don't think it is a fair comparison. People voted for this person to run our country now over half don't like the job he is doing. Bush was never this low in the poll in his first 4 years. Of course Bush was fighting Terrorist. Obama says we don't have any.

    She's at 39%. That's the reality - eat it.

    How much do you get for these obvious troll posts? a nickel each? Oh and stop e-mailing me. I blocked you.

    You know why? Because she can't stop herself from saying stupid shit.
    The "Obama Death Panels " remark is just the most recent example of her inability to stop.

    She's constantly verbal vomiting all the time!

    Disappear ... regroup ... refocus ... and then come back Palin.

    How are McCain's ratings? Sorry but most elections are really a choice between sly and slyest. We might not have had the greatest options, but nobody wanted the donkey pull cart (McCain) on this version of Let's Make a Deal.

    Out today???? Your assertion that Obama's favorables were lower than Palin's was made YESTERDAY.... I've never heard these figures, probably something FOX dreamed up....

    And you are comparing this "elected" President with the one the Supreme Court appointed? And the one that had 9/11?? This is a ridiculous conversation and
    don't plan on commenting again to this line of conversation. This thread was about
    Palin, not Obama... if you want that, start your own thread.

    Unfortunately "Football1988" was right. Rasmussen conducted this poll, but it differs from others. Do they lean conservative?

    Let's hope she just disappears! Watch for the Repbulican Governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels, to start hitting the news. Supposedly high on the list for 2012. As bad as Palin, and was a total Bush lackey. The Republican party is really going to need to come up with better options than these two!

    Not liking Obama is your right.

    Liking Palin, even just a little, is not to be explained... Are you even gay???

    I was never the least bit impressed with this woman. The debate with her and Joe Biden was painful to watch with her responses. I'm sorry but give me a president and vice president who speak well, know the world issues around them, act and be smarter than me to run this country. I don't want someone running this country that I can "sit down and have a beer with"...I have friends and family to do that!

    Interesting how when a poll says Sarah Pallin's popularity is dropping, it's somehow something worthy of a thread to some of you here at RealJock. But god forbid someone would mention that Obama's ratings are the lowest ever. Oh no, how could that be? LOL! You guys have such selective hearing when it comes to reality that it's almost laughable.

    I kind of of pity the woman - she's probably had a breakdown of some sort or the other - I mean, really? Alaska?

    ..SERIOUSLY?

    I can't imagine that Alaska is as tough to manage as, say, Iowa, and that's not to say they don't have their problems, but c'mon - really?

    Alaska?

    Faced with public scrutiny and a basically admitted knowledge that she's been branded as an idiot has probably got her on edge. She quit her bloody job, and people don't do that without having a pretty good reason.

    She's allowed to exercise her rights to free speech, but...with her numbers on the decline I don't think it'll be long before history moves on, and another page is written, and everyone forgets about the train wreck that was Sarah Palin.

    I keep hoping that she gets the nod to run, than Democrats can take over the whole country! That will surely push the Right, and their leader Rush Limbaugh, further over the edge
