We've found a lot of brutal poll numbers for Sarah Palin so far in 2011: down in South Dakota, down in South Carolina, down in Arizona, only up by 1 point in Texas, only up by 1 point in Nebraska to name a few. But this has to be the worst- independent voters say they would support Charlie Sheen over Palin for President by a 41/36 margin. Seriously.More at the PDF.
Despite her deficit with independents Palin does lead Sheen 49-29 overall. We also tested Barack Obama against Sheen and the President leads 57-24.
In yesterday’s release, 86% of Democrats viewed Palin negatively, versus only 64% who see Sheen that way. Similarly, 86% of Republicans disapprove of Obama’s job performance, while 73% see Sheen unfavorably. Naturally, then, Democrats would still prefer Sheen to Palin (44-24) and Republicans Sheen to Obama (37-28). Apparently Democrats are even more intense in their hatred of Palin than Republicans toward Obama. Thus, Palin “only” beats Sheen, 49-29, but the president does, 57-24.The fact PPP would even sink to such juvenile levels shows they cannot be taken seriously. They also unearth this nugget.
“The fact that Republicans and Democrats would vote for Charlie Sheen over the opposing party’s nominee shows how polarized things have become in America,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.
44% of Americans think Fox News should continue to run Glenn Beck’s show to 32% who think he should be fired. Actual viewers of the network are strongly supportive of Beck, while those who don’t watch it think he should go.Kind of like all those people who don't listen to Rush Limbaugh but want him off the air.
