I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

59% Of Alaskans Would Not Vote For Sarah Palin For President

When Sarah Palin first burst on the national scene she had an 80% approval rating in her home state, now she couldn’t even get a majority of Alaskans to vote for her:

Sarah Palin appears to be losing the Alaska vote.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds that just 41% say they would vote for the former Alaska governor if she ran for president in 2012. Forty-eight percent (48%) say they would not vote for Palin, and 11% more are undecided.

Alaska voters are almost evenly divided in their views of Palin. Forty-nine percent (49%) view her at least somewhat favorably, while 50% share an unfavorable opinion of her. This includes 31% who regard her Very Favorably and 37% with a Very Unfavorable view.

Perhaps this can be explained in part by the feeling that the ex-governor who became Republican John McCain’s surprise running mate in the 2008 presidential campaign is bad for Alaska’s image. Thirty-eight percent (38%) say Palin’s views and activities reflect positively on Alaska’s image, but 45% think they reflect negatively on the state. Twelve percent (12%) say they have no impact

And that’s from the voters who, arguably, know Palin best.

That ain’t good.

    3% to 5% should be normal but 41% of people are ready to vote for somebody who quit her job as governor just to make money. I think it’s an AMAZING success. It also says a lot about partisanship in this country.
