lmao,, the gop base will not win elections.. you need moderates and independents. Palin had the lowest favorability ratings of all four canidates on the ticket. and only 20% feels she hurt the ticket? only??
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Approval Index for Friday shows that Barack Obama has gained a little ground, primarily resulting from a decline in the number of voters with a very negative view of his performance.
Today, 41% of voters nationwide Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is handling his new role as president-elect. Thats up a point since yesterday (see trends).
Twenty-nine percent (29%) Strongly Disapprove, down three points.
These figures give Obama a +12 rating on the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Approval Index. The Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. Rasmussen Reports believes that this is a better measure of public perceptions than the overall approval ratings.
These figures are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time and a FREE daily e-mail update is available.
By way of comparison, 14% of voters Strongly Approve of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president. Forty-eight percent (48%) Strongly Disapprove. That gives the current President a -34 on the Presidential Approval Index.
Rasmussen Reports: The most comprehensive public opinion coverage ever provided for a presidential election.
Apparently not enough.
Mac's one new strategy per week did a lot more damage to the ticket than Palin ever could have. While war heroes like Dole, Kerry, Bush Sr.,and Mac have proven to be weak presidential candidates, Mac's advisors like Davis, Schmitt & co. are incompetent, and aren't qualified to run a campaign for junior class treasurer of Beverly Hills High.
But Palin represented his shift to a new strategy per week.
She was the first hail mary. After she started fading, he tried a new hail mary (suspending campaign) and then a new one (bringing up wright ayers) and then a new one (socialist) and so on.
before Palin he was pretty steady in his moderate stance, and wanted Liebermann or Romney which would have been a continuation of his previous steady hand - Experience and country first.
They must have surveyed Barbara, George Sr., Jeb, and Laura ten times each to get a number that high.
he was showing signs of being very inconsistent before she showed up
with no clue about economics, Mac relied heavily on his advisors when it came to domestic issues, and they were always disagreeing and changing his focus each time he lost a point in the polls
Palin has a bright future, she showed consistency and strong leadership skills by straying from the horrible campaign with whom she shared a ticket.
The people ripping on Palin are liberals and moderate Republicans.... They know she is a threat in 2012 or beyond that's why they are blaming her...
There's something creepy about posters who clap for themselves.
Separate names with a comma.
