Poll: 57 Percent View Palin Unfavorably

December 13, 2010

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin continues to be a highly polarizing figure, with a whopping 57 percent viewing her unfavorably according to a new poll.

The Bloomberg survey, released Monday, also found that the negative feelings about Palin are particularly strong. A third -- 33 percent -- said they view Palin "very unfavorably." That's the same percentage that viewed her favorably cumulatively -- respondents who either viewed her "somewhat" or "very" favorably (!).

The survey results indicate that Palin faces a significant image problem as she decides to run for president.

Just look at how Pres. Obama's numbers compare. Obama scored a net negative job approval rating -- 48 percent said they disapprove of his performance as president while 47 percent approved, which is in line with other polls and shows the Bloomberg survey isn't a particularly good poll for the president. However, 52 percent view Obama favorably while 44 percent view him unfavorably.

More troubling for Palin is that it may be tough for her to change that perception. Only 10 percent are unsure of their opinion of her.

Notably, the Democratic Party (48 percent favorable, 33 percent unfavorable), the GOP (43 percent favorable, 48 percent unfavorable) and even the Tea Party (37 percent favorable, 41 percent unfavorable) all received higher marks than Palin.

The Bloomberg poll was conducted Dec. 4 to 7, surveyed 1,000 U.S. adults and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.
