Even Palin’s Supporters Don’t Want Her To Be President
Despite the fact that a majority of Americans apparently agree with Sarah Palin on issues like the size of government, even her most fervent supporters don’t seem too eager to see her sitting behind the Resolute Desk:
Sarah Palin is the most personally popular of the Republicans, with 66% viewing her favorably. She is followed by Huckabee at 60% and Gingrich and Romney at 57%.
The problem for Palin is that a smaller percentage of the people who like her personally support her for President than any of the other Republicans. 37% of the voters who like Romney also say he’s their choice for the 2012 nomination and the same is true for 32% who like Gingrich and Huckabee. But just 24% who see Palin positively on a personal level translate that to intent to vote for her.
As I have been saying repeatedly since the end of the 2008 election, with number like these there’s just no way Sarah Palin will ever be President.
Take that one to the bank.
