Sarah Palin overall favorable rating is 24%. Her unfavorable rating is 54%. When the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was last conducted in April, 9% of those surveyed had a very positive view of Palin. After Paul Revere that number is 7%. Her publicity blitz did cause people that have a very unfavorable view of her to drop from 41% to 38%, but this was offset by an increase in those who had a somewhat unfavorable view of her from 12% to 16%.
In a January 2011 CNN poll, Sarah Palin had a 38% approval rating. By March, a Bloomberg poll had her sinking to 28%. In an April Washington Post poll, Palin’s approval with tea partiers fell to 60%, and her disapproval rating overall shot up to 55%. Later that same month, the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll measured her approval rating at 25%.
To summarize, Sarah Palin’s approval rating when we began 2011 was 38%. It is now 24%. If the point of the bus tour was to make Palin more popular, then it was a gigantic fail on wheels. She may have been able to get something positive out of the bus tour until she was asked that gotcha question what did you do today? As soon as Palin answered with her revised history of Paul Revere’s ride, any shot at positive publicity was down the drain.
For the twelve people in the country who may not yet have seen it, here is Palin's rendition of the "Ride of Paul Revere."
And here she is doubling down on the stupid.
Wow, a 24% approval rating seems awfully generous after watching that.
And this was AFTER she tried to bring her number back up with this "educational" bus tour.
One can only imagine how much lower her poll numbers will sink after THIS thing scalds their eyes, and sears their brains in the movie theaters.
You know the funny thing is that Palin's plan to increase her popularity is exactly MY plan to destroy her popularity, and that is to simply let people learn more about her. In her opinion, the more people know they better they will like her, and my opinion is just the opposite.
Gee who do you think has been right so far?
