Obama Approval Rating: 46%
Good news/bad news...good for Palin, bad for Obama
As Sarah Palin blankets the media on a whirlwind book promotion tour, the former vice-presidential contender is clearly back on America’s radar screen. Despite being characterized by many as a divisive force in her party and the nation, Americans are much more likely to give Palin a positive rating (47 percent favorable) than another prominent female leader — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (28 percent favorable). Moreover, about six in 10 Americans (61 percent) think Palin has been treated unfairly by the press, according to the latest Fox News poll.My view is that the press in general has been extraordinarily antagonistic towards ALL women seeking high office. The only exception is Nancy Pelosi, who has been treated by the MSM to a favorable degree that highlights the poor treatment of Mrs. Palin, Mrs. Clinton and others.
