A Little Vetting Goes A Long Way

From +17 to +1 in six days.

FiveThirtyEight.com: Palin's Favorability Numbers Eroding

As voters have taken a second look at Sarah Palin in venues like the Charlie Gibson interview and even Tina Fey's SNL sketch, they may not be as enamored of what they're seeing.

The Research 2000 poll for Daily Kos now has Palin's favorability-unfavorability scores at 45-44 -- just a +1. Six days ago, when the poll, launched, she was at a 52-35, a +17.

Perhaps they've heard that she's no longer cooperating in the Troopergate investigation; is still lying about the Bridge to Nowhere; is the Queen of Earmarks and John McCain has been lying about her record; is telling a new lie about the teleprompter breaking during her Republican Convention speech (reporters could see it, and it didn't); and installed a tanning bed in the Governor's Mansion in Alaska (so middle class).

And that's not even getting into her crazy religion, the fact that her town refused to pay for rape victims' rape kits, and that that decision was probably because she is so anti-abortion that she didn't want to pay for the morning-after pill. And so anti-abortion that she picketed a doctor's office. She believes the world will end in our lifetime. In other words, she's a complete whack-job.

She is a Trojan hockey mom who doesn't believe in Trojans.
