Good Poll Number for Palin
In a hypothetical match-up with Charlie Sheen, Public Policy Polling find that Sarah Palin would win 49-29.
Now, if only Palin can get the Democrats to nominate Sheen…
Going inside the numbers we find, however, that independents prefer Sheen to Palin, 41/36.
However, Sheen’s ability to win is clearly undercut by the fact that he is “one of the most unpopular figures” that PPP has ever polled with a 10% favorability rating and negatives at a whopping 67%. As we all should know, high negatives make winning electoral office rather difficult.
While it is true that Sheen has a remarkable following on Twitter, it just goes to show that getting attention for oneself does not always translate into useable political popularity in an electoral sense.
