"Riding a wave of positive publicity from her book tour, Sarah Palin’s favorable rating has crept within just 1 percent of President Barack Obama’s job approval rating, according to the latest polls by CNN and USA Today/Gallup.
The results suggest Palin has fixed the dent in her popularity ratings created this summer when she announced she was stepping down as governor of Alaska.
According to a CNN poll released Monday, 46 percent of voters now say they like Palin. That’s the same level of popularity she enjoyed before she resigned the Alaska governorship.
The Los Angeles Times’ Top of the Ticket blog commented Tuesday: "The very same polarization [seen with Palin] now holds true for Obama, the fresh fellow from the old Chicago Democratic machine who was supposed to bring hope and change to a nation tired of divisive politics and the harsh partisan tone of Washington.
One big worry for the president: Since November, his approval rating with independents has dropped 7 points, USA Today reports."
The collapse (still unfolding, watch Dubai) will lead to a return to old-fashioned values: family, God, putting the gays and libs back behind the dumpsters where they belong, sound money, kicking out Muslim mad-dogs like Major Nasan. The people will turn to Sarah, even though she’s not a slick, fast-talking lawyer charlatan. Let’s hope she can save us!
