From Scott Rasmussen’s latest polling on possible 2012 presidential contenders:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of those voters finds that 82% have a favorable opinion of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the party’s vice presidential nominee in 2008, while just 17% view her unfavorably. That includes 50% with a Very Favorable opinion and eight percent (8%) with a Very Unfavorable one.
This is quite a significant rise in Sarah Palin’s approval ratings, which have consistently polled in the low to mid 70s. Obviously, as her favorables have risen, her unfavorables have lowered significantly as well.
These numbers are getting close to her pre-vice presidential run approval numbers when she was Governor of Alaska, where her numbers were consistently in the high 80s to low 90s. The top numbers of any Governor in the Nation at the time.
