Some Interesting Poll Numbers

I happened to stumble across this while reading about the happenings of everyone’s favorite political-wannabe Sarah Palin.

CBS News took a poll (of which you can read the results here) and asked people if they would like to see Sarah Palin run for President of the United States.

71 percent of Americans said they did not want to see her as a candidate while 21 percent wanted to see a candidate Palin, with 8 percent undecided.

Of course there are going to be more Republicans that want to see her run than Democrats, but over half of all Republicans, 56 percent, do not want to see her run.  Let me reiterate that, the majority of Republicans don’t want Sarah Palin to run for President.  88 percent of Democrats also don’t want to see her run, along with 65 percent of Independents.

In the same survey, CBS asked the participants in the poll their view of Sarah Palin: 41 percent had an unfavorable view, 26 percent had a favorable one, 19 percent were undecided and 13 percent hadn’t heard enough about her (which kind of shocks me because she pretty much dominates the news–usually being attacked by pundits from both sides of the political spectrum).

It seems kind of funny to me that she is such a popular conservative spokesperson while most do not want to see her run for president–58 percent of conservatives (not the same thing as Republicans) don’t want to see her run.  Although, I guess it makes sense because they want to see her as a controversial political pundit on television like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck.  Just the thought of those three having a very dominant influence on part of the political spectrum makes me want to throw up.
