More voters agree with Palin than Obama

So Sarah Palin may have her passionate devotees but her far out ideas and lack of experience render her unelectable as president huh? Hmmm, well according to the very reliable Rasmussen Report
Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin's than they are to President Obama's, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just 40% say their views are closer to the president's than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.

Sure there are qualifiers, ifs and buts; sure agreeing with a candidate doesn't necessarily translate into voting for a candidate. However

Voters are fairly evenly divided in their views of Palin. Forty-eight percent (48%) view her favorably, while 49% hold an unfavorable opinion of her. This includes 21% with a Very Favorable view and 31% with a Very Unfavorable one. This marks little change from last November when Palin was on a national tour to promote her book, "Going Rogue."

However, 76% of Republicans and 52% of unaffiliated voters now hold a favorable opinion of Palin.

Once upon a short time ago Barack Obama was considered unelectable because of his lack of experience, his uninspiring legislative record and his hazy background. But...poof! he was elected.
