Reuters: Americans Most Want Sandra Bullock, Sarah Palin As Neighbors

By Gary P Jackson

Online real estate marketer Zilliow.com surveyed American adults asking them who they would like to have living next door to them. As it turns out, Sandra Bullock and Sarah Palin topped the list coming in first and second respectively. The cast of Jersey Shore were voted “worst neighbors” in the polling.

From Reuters:

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Americans would most like to live next door to actress Sandra Bullock in 2011, but the cast of the reality show “Jersey Shore” made the most undesirable neighbors, according to a poll released on Tuesday.

Bullock, who has won huge audiences with her All-American, girl-next-door image, earned more than a quarter of the vote in the annual poll on the most desirable celebrity neighbors, conducted by online real estate marketplace Zillow.com.

She was followed by conservative Republican politician, Sarah Palin. That may bode well for people in Arizona as on Monday, headlines trumpeted the news that her daughter, Bristol Palin, had bought a home in the state.

President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha dropped three places to No. 4 on the list after coming out on top last year. They were proceeded by talk show hosts Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia DeRossi at No. 3. Rounding out the top five was talk show host Conan O’Brien.

This comes on the heels of Sarah Palin being named to Gallup’s “Most Admired Woman” Top 10 for the third year in a row. For the ninth consecutive year, Hillary Clinton was chosen as the “Most Admired Woman” with Sarah Palin being chosen second for her third consecutive year in a row.

The Gallup poll asks those surveyed to choose both the most admired man and most admired woman living anywhere in the world.

    It’s interesting to note that Palin manages to come in quite close to the top on MANY general “popularity” polls – even though the LSM continues to beat the drum – with lies & distortions – of just how “stupid,” “unelectible” and generally “disrespected” she is among the American mainstream. What I’ve taken from all these end-of-years pollings is that – on the contrary – she is EMINENTLY qualified, popular & respected by a very wide range of the American public!! (But don’t let facts get in the way of a twisted – yet very determined – Libturd narrative!)

    But, like that old watch add on TV, our Mz Sarah just takes a lickin’ but keeps on tickin’!!

      Yeah, that’s my take as well.

      Most of the polling you see out there is done to create a narrative, not actually state facts. When you see left wing outfits like CNN, the NY Times, CBS and others polling, and showing wildly different results than what we know to be true, you have to look at their methodology, group sample, and how it is weighted. Many times these polls won’t tell you. When that is the case you know they are BS right off the bat.

      Polling has gotten so sophisticated that you can tell the pollster what outcome you are looking for, and the pollster can deliver it.

      You ever noticed how wildly polling varies right up until just weeks, or even days before an election? Most pollsters will play it somewhat straight around then, in order to look credible to those who don’t pay attention most of the time.

      Oldest trick in the book.

    Why does this story even matter? I love Sarah Palin but this story just seems like fluff and totally irrelevent to anything….are we running out of story’s?

      Lighten up. Not everything has to “matter” Sometimes they are just fun and entertaining. It’s interesting to note that Sarah Palin is someone, along with Sandra Bullock, who Americans would love to have as a neighbor.

      It’s very noteworthy that once again, Sarah Palin is one of the most admired women in the world. Coming second in behind Clinton, three years in a row. Although the real story may be how Hillary Clinton has dominated the survey for 15 years or more.

      Again, lighten up. It’s the end of the year, we’ll see all kinds of “best of” and “worst of” lists. These two were interesting. The Gallup poll is a big deal.
