America’s Sweetheart once again. Sarah Palin’s approval rating continues on an seemingly inexorable rise as she reaches new heights for the year at 53.50% approval on the day when Reuters records Mitt Romney at 42% against President Obama. Palin is up a massive 16 points over the last twelve months.
On the heels of major polling firm PPP Polling’s finding that Sarah Palin is more popular, by far, than any of the declared GOP candidates in the recent primary campaign, with a 68% approval rating AT THIS LINK and a net positive rating of +48, now a poll (graphs at bottom of this page) at Election Meter.com has her approval also at a significant level.
The new 5,000+ vote EM Poll AT THIS LINK gives Palin a 53.50% approval rating. This is her fourth rating above 50% in this poll since early 2009 and shows the long struggle against media distortion she has had to undertake, so the slow and steady rise continues.
