Not surprisingly, as people get to know her, Palin's numbers are trending down, down, down.
Some key numbers from CBS;
While Palin remains popular among McCain voters, the poll suggests that the McCain campaign may have cause for concern. More than half of registered voters do not think Palin is prepared for the job of Vice President, and even McCain supporters cite “inexperience” as what they like least about her.
Just 17 percent of registered voters say McCain chose Palin because she is well qualified for the job of Vice President. Seventy-five percent say McCain made the choice to help win the election. (Even voters backing the Republican ticket share this view: 53 percent say the Palin choice was to help McCain win in November.)
Palin’s favorable rating stands at 40 percent, down 4 points from last week. Her unfavorable rating, which stands at 30 percent, has risen eight points in the same time period. Her favorable rating among women has fallen 11 points in the past week.
Thank the flying spaghetti monster, cause I gotta tell you-- I was seriously wondering just how stupid Americans had become in the last 8 years! But it seems as if the brief Palin love fest has come to an abrupt end. Which is not to say that this race isn't still too close to call.
Speaking of calling, phone banking tonight yielded 123 calls. and at least 10 of my voters mentioned Palin as the #1 reason they were so motivated to vote.
