article imagePoll: Majority of Americans don't want Palin to run for President

By Andrew Moran     Jan 18, 2010 in Politics
A new poll by CBS found that nearly three-quarters of Americans don't want the former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin to run for the United States Presidency in 2012.
On Monday, CBS released their latest poll that suggests 71 per cent of Americans do not want the former 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate to run for President in the 2012 general elections, while 21 per cent said they do want her to run, according to the Huffington Post.
The telephone survey further showed that among parties, both are cautious of her running. More than half of Republican voters do not want her to run for the White House, while 88 per cent of Democrats concurred. Independents also are objected to Palin running in 2012 as 65 per cent said no.
In general, Palin is not viewed favorably either. The poll showed, even after her book tour, a large number of Americans don't like her. 41 per cent of respondents view her unfavorably and 26 per cent viewed her in a positive light.
Palin would seek the Republican nomination in 2012 but only 43 per cent of Republicans have a favorable opinion and 58 per cent of conservatives do not want her to run in 2012.
The telephone survey was conducted between Jan. 14 and Jan. 17 with 1,090 randomly selected respondents and contains a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
