Palin Dragging the GOP Ticket Down

It has been said that people vote for the person at the top of the ticket, well not for the McCain Palin ticket.

Fifty-seven percent of likely voters questioned in the poll said Palin does not have the personal qualities a president should have.

“Just after the GOP convention in early September, 53 percent said they would vote for Palin over Joe Biden if there were a separate vote for vice president. Now, Biden would beat Palin by 12 points if the running mates were chosen in a separate vote,” said CNN Polling Director Keating.

“It would be a 4-point edge for Barack Obama, 52 percent to 48 percent.  Since the McCain-Palin tickets is currently getting 46 percent in a match-up against the Obama-Biden tickeet, it looks like Palin’s oresense on the GOP ballot is taking 2 percentage points away from McCain.  In a close race, that might represent the margin of victory, ” Holland said.

The unfavorable numbers for Palin, Alaska’s governor, also have been growing.  They are 8 points higher in the current poll than in early October, and they’re twice as high as they were when McCain accounced his running mate in late August.

I have been saying this along, Palin is too extreme, too unqualified, and too much of a liar to be of any value in the White House. In the waning days of this election she may very well be one of the major reasons why the Republicans lose the White House. She was not properly vetted in a desperate attempt by McCain to shore up the far right of the Republican Party, but not one thought was given the independent voters who largely help close the deal on the race for the White House.

Well, John, you reap what you sow.

  1. This is such a bogus poll – anything CNN does is a poll on liberals. And those voting for McCain couldn’t give a flip what liberals think. Nice try CNN… still out there trolling to influence the election I see. I wonder what you are going to report if your boy does win, and all of those Dem workers get laid off as promised by the corporations who have made it clear they will be cutting jobs under an Obama win? Who will you be able to blame it on then – if the Dems have the house, senate and the presidency… Mickey Mouse?

    Well – my money will leave the US, and I will release the workers I have here under an Obama presidency. No way will I let him spread my wealth to the lazy baby mommas.

  3. Bull!! The media with their pollsters will do anything to stomp on Palin let alone any conservative. When one combines all the media outlets, the sum dwarfs the audience of Fox , Limbaugh, Hannity et al. Add this to the fact that to polls are skewed even further due to the over sampling of liberals, which is about 3:2. The libs will do “anything” to destroy Palin’s political future.

    By his words and deeds, Sen. Barack Obama shows utter contempt for middle-class, average Americans. A prime example is how Obama trashed Joe the Plumber for daring to ask Obama a question. While standing in his own driveway, Joe asked why Obama wanted to raise his taxes. Obama said he wanted to confiscate Joe’s hard-earned money and “spread the wealth around” to reward people for not working. This is pure socialism that will kill the will to work and destroy our economy. After Obama realized he had exposed himself as a wealth-distribution socialist, Obama and his media allies went on the attack to destroy Joe and deflect attention away from Obama. Stunned, Joe, a single parent, said during a TV interview: “When you can’t ask your leaders a question, that’s scary.” If Obama becomes president while Congress and the media are controlled by his fellow left-wingers, there will be no check on our government’s absolute power, and we will lose our freedom to challenge our government. Just ask Joe.

  5. Are you kidding me? My friends and I were leaning toward Obama until Sarah Palin comes along. She closed the deal for us. She has more experience than the other 3 canidates. With all the craps the mainstream and bloggers like you threw at her, she comes out more confident and stronger than ever. She has convinced us that she’s ready for vice president.

  6. If McCain chose Lieberman or Romney, this would have been a neck and neck race at this point…

    That’s what happens when you go for shock value instead of substance…

  7. Look I don’t consider myself either rep or dem, but I work in the pharma industry so i vote rep a lot. But McCain is no friend to pharma or healthcare for that matter. She is the reason I am not voting for a rep. I cannot stand her and I think she is far too conservative and inexperienced it’s almost laughable. She scares me.

  8. my perfect cadidate would have been Rudy…conservative but pro-choice…nailed it on the head there!

  9. I have just never understood why McCain had to pick a VP candidate to “solidify his base” call me crazy, but I hava a feeling those people would be voting Republican anyway! He needed to get a running mate that would reach those more moderate Republicans and Independents/

  10. Palin blew it. She came onto the scene with everyone willing to give her a chance. Look how she wowed them at the convention. But then we started to hear her speak incoherently and incorrectly, and it showed us that she didn’t have a grasp on the issues, or the English language. Of late, her behavior suggests that she wishes she could get rid of McCain and run the show by herself. Her parody on SNL and then her appearance cemented the idea of a beauty queen bubble head. She’s toast.

  11. What bothers me most is how people of the GOP clearly try to compare Palin with Clinton. This is an absurd comparison. Clinton is a brilliant Senator who has reached out to millions of women and Americans alike. Palin knows very little about anything; including her own running mate. She has backwards ideals, and would probably bring us back 5,000 years if elected. I agree with Bill Maher in saying that Sarah Palin is a Level 5 Moron.

  12. Joel… the Republican party was hoping that women would vote with their vaginas and not their brains!! Women aren’t going to vote for someone simply because of their gender!

  13. Too late now. McCain is too old, too late, and too much like Bush.
    He’s stuck with Palin and he’ll rue the day.

  14. It seems that some people think intelligence is a vice. Hilliary was a brilliant attorney and she has been involved in national and international issues since the early 1990’s. Anybody who compares Sarah Palin to her is ignoring the obvious. Sarah Palin has been governor of Alaska for two years. That state is ranked 48th in population and has no state income tax because it feeds at the spigot of the oil companies, so what could she possibly know about taxes and economics? More importantly, Alaska has no love for the other 49 states and even less interest in the rest of the world. It is a ‘small town’ state. Obama was a state senator for Illinois, which has 20 times the population of Alaska, and its complexity of government is light years beyond anything Palin has ever seen, much less experienced. Most important of all, Sarah Palin is a substandard intellect, who attended 5 small colleges before she finally got a degree in Journalism. Her lifetime goal was to be a television newscaster. Those who try to compare her skills and achievements to Barack Obama are driven more by right wing ideology than logic. That’s why Palin represents the same old partisan politics and gamesmanship that has led us to the disastrous crisis we’re now facing. If you’re an educated person who understands the advantages of a deliberative intellect, then the idea of voting for someone like Sarah Palin would never even occur to you.
