WaPo Poll: 60% Say Palin Unqualified for Presidency
Sarah Palin better have a back-up plan. A new Washington Post poll shows 60% of Americans say she's unqualified to be President.
[H]er favorability rating remains stuck well below what it was when she first emerged on the national scene at last year's Republican convention....if the goal is the White House, public opinion is now tilted against the idea: asked if they would consider voting for Palin in 2012, 53 percent say they would not.
A CNN poll shows similar numbers. (Added: Same for a new CBS poll.) I don't think she's serious about running for anything. She appears to be into making money -- and sales from her book are her main income right now. I just wish Levi would stop helping her. Today he's threatening a custody battle, which will only keep the family in the news. Sarah is not an Internet buzz.
And more Sarah book fallacies, this time on the timeline of when the McCain campaign knew about her daughter's pregnancy. [More...]
"I was impressed with these guys. They were thorough. For example, they already knew that Bristol was pregnant, a development that I thought only loved ones were privy to at the time."
Yet Palin should have known the campaign was aware of the pregnancy by that point: She told the campaign's vice presidential vetters as much, in writing, far before she was chosen to be John McCain's running mate.
Her appearance on Oprah? Allesandra Stanley of the NY Times says it "mostly showed a politician-celebrity going for broke.
