A Rasmussen survey, as reported yesterday, shows that 52% of voters say their views are closer to Governor Palin's than they are to President Obama's. That's no surprise to me, as I expect American patriots to relate to love for our Constitution, support of our military, defense of the unborn, and the desire for government to get out of the way rather than taking more of our freedoms and putting future generations into more debt.
The report states:
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.
Eighty-four percent (84%) of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party say their views are more like Palin’s. Eighty-one percent (81%) of Democrats say they think more like the president.
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.
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of GOP voters said in November 2009 that Palin shares the values of most Republican voters throughout the nation. At the same time, 74% of Republicans said their party’s representatives in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters nationwide over the past several years.
