Wondering about the Newsweek cover story of the former Governor of Alaska, David Harsanyi asks:
a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation recently found that 48 percent disapprove of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a woman busy writing policy that affects all of us. Does this not require a “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Nancy?” headline from the venerable magazine?
(Via Instapundit.) So, that got me wondering why doesn’t Newsweek run a cover story on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, picturing him in workout gear, asking about the problems this unpopular politician poses for the Democratic Party. After all, he has a “51 percent disapproval rating” in his home state. The most recent nation poll, shows 14% having a positive view of the Nevada Democratic, 26% having a negative view, with 19% having a very negative view.
Guess their absence of charisma prevents them from being featured on magazine covers.
Despite being characterized by many as a divisive force in her party and the nation, Americans are much more likely to give Palin a positive rating (47 percent favorable) than another prominent female leader — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (28 percent favorable). Moreover, about six in 10 Americans (61 percent) think Palin has been treated unfairly by the press, according to the latest Fox News poll.
So, Palin has a favorable ranking three times than of the Senate Democratic Leader. If she’s a problem for the GOP, ol’ Harry must really be a problem for the Democrats.
