People think Palin has a shot in 2012?

I  know you can’t have enough 2012 polls.  Its good fun and anybody can be right, nobody’s wrong.  BUT, I still cannot fathom why Palin is even included in these polls and not just because of this- via Hot Air

a majority of Americans hold an unfavorable view of her, and there is broad public doubt about her leadership skills and understanding of complex issues

I realize that voicing a negative opinion of Sarah Palin is GOP suicide and a serious breach of the 11th commandment {76% of conservative Republicans have a favorable view of her}.  Dale Carnegie certainly wouldn’t approve.  She is not electable as a national candidate.    Focus on the unaffiliated voters and independents who are deserting The One in droves.  Per Rasmussen;

Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats continue to approve of the President’s performance while 80% of Republicans disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 37% offer a positive assessment.

Ergo, 63% of unaffiliated voters have a negative assessment of Obama.    Maybe those voters are looking for a new Presidential candidate in 4 years.  I don’t see how supporters of Sarah Palin expect the same independents who voted for an ultra-liberal candidate  over her and the most independent, squishy Republican in John McCain in 2008 to come back around 4 years later after she quit her job as governor.

Via Hot Air–  Something to think about….

When Romney is the Republican nominee, he beats Obama among unaffiliated voters 48% to 41%. But when Palin is the GOP candidate, unaffiliated voters prefer Obama by a 47% to 41% margin…
