America’s Hatred Of Sarah Palin Reaches Historic Heights
It’s starting already isn’t it. We’ll soon be bombarded with news of this person and that person all running to be the one. I don’t know much about Sarah Palin. In fact, I don’t know much about any of the cadidates, except former Governor Pawlenty who has been on the air with me from time to time. It should be interesting.
In case you thought there was no way that America could possibly hate Sarah Palin any more than they already do, check out her new approval ratings from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Palin’s approval rating has dropped to 25%, which is tied with George W. Bush and one point behind Richard Nixon for the worst ever.
According to the poll, America’s dislike of Sarah Palin is bordering on historic. Within the 25% of Americans that approve of her only 9% strongly approve of her. This actually represents a drop 4 points from the last time this poll was taken in December. The number of Americans who strongly disapprove of her dropped from 16% to 12%, but this was offset by an increase of 7% in those who somewhat disapprove of her from 34% to 41%.
Sarah Palin’s approval ratings have gotten so bad that she is on the verge of making history. At her current rating of 25% favorable, Palin is tied with George W. Bush’s final ratings, and she is only one point behind Richard Nixon’s pre-resignation approval rating of 24%. Palin has already topped Jimmy Carter’s worst approval rating of 28%, and George H.W. Bush’s 29%.
Last month I wrote that Sarah Palin has become the most hated politician in America, but since then her approval rating has dropped an additional three points from 28% to 25%. It may seem impossible, but America actually hates Sarah Palin more than they did three weeks ago. All of this might lead you to assume that there is no way that Palin will run for president in 2012, but logic has no place in a discussion about Sarah Palin. She shouldn’t run, but she still might.
One thing is clear. America definitely doesn’t love Sarah Palin, and there seems to be no limit to how deep their hatred of her can go.
