Sarah Palin’s Low Favorability Ratings?


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin continues to receive unfavorable ratings from the American public overall, a new CBS News poll shows, though many Republicans do hold a favorable opinion of her.

Polls like this continue to baffle me.  There seems like there a new weekly poll about Sarah Palin’s Favorability and it’s always low.  This doesn’t make any sense.  It seems to defy the popular view of Sarah Palin.

So how does Sarah Palin attract 10’s of thousands of people at Tea Party rallies and other conventions?  How does Sarah Palin have 1,521,842 Facebook fans?  I’m not a Facebook user, but that’s a quite a crowd of fans.  This seems to be contradictory to any of Sarah Palin’s book signings and sales.  If she wasn’t popular, why would anyone buy her book?

So who did CBS poll?

This poll was conducted among a random sample of 858 adults nationwide, interviewed by telephone March 29-April 1, 2010. Phone numbers were dialed from random digit dial samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups is higher. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.

858 random adults?  That’s quite a sample.  And were these samples really random?  I’m finding it really hard to believe any of these polls anymore.  What were the specific questions asked?  How come I never get calls from these pollsters?  All these polls say the same things about Sarah Palin.  No one likes her.  She’s unpopular.  Americans find her dimwitted.  Republicans find her divisive.  Democrats call her dangerous.  Independents don’t take her seriously.

You’re trying to convince me that Sarah Palin, who has over a million Facebook admirers, draws tens of thousands at political rallies, yet has a negative favorable ratings amongst the public.  Rubbish, complete rubbish!

As hard as the left desperately tries to convince us by throwing poll after poll in our faces, there’s a larger truth out there.  They LIE!  They make stuff up.  People need to look at the facts.  How can someone like Sarah Palin attract all these people to her message of prosperity, independence, and freedom, be considered unfavorable?

Hey, maybe CBS actually means Crappy Broadcast Standards.  Their polling is crap, like their programming.

Then, there’s this….

Those are my values.
