Guess it helps when you can get your own message out without the active interference of the mainstream media, well, with greatly reduced interference. I mean, during her book tour, the media isn’t letting up, just not attacking her with the ferocity of their campaign coverage last fall. If any of the internet news aggregators offer headlines about the former Alaska Governor, they tend to be critical of that accomplished reformer.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll (which tends to lean Democratic) released earlier today found that
Americans are split on Palin, with 46 percent saying they have a favorable opinion of her and an equal amount saying they have an unfavorable view of last year’s Republican vice presidential nominee.
Looks like she’s doing just a tad better than the president. The current pollster average has 48.4% of Americans disapproving of the job he’s doing with only 47.8% approving:
Wonder what his numbers would look like if the media treated him as they do her.
UPDATE: Come to think about it, maybe I should have picked a different title. While Palin’s poll numbers are on an upward trend, Obama’s are heading south. Not quite parallel that.
