Backlash–By 10 to 1 Americans say Press out to Hurt Palin 4 September, 2008

Posted by David Anderson in Uncategorized.

The Presidential tracking polls were closing even before last night as the non-Democrat voters started rallying behind Palin. Unaffiliated (Independent voters) see her equally or more qualified than Senator Obama. This quote from the Rasmussen Reports is stunning because it is based upon results before the speech. Governor, this looks like an Isaiah 54:17 moment.

Last night’s polling shows that, by a ten-to-one margin, voters believe reporters are trying to hurt Palin’s campaign rather than help. Republicans and unaffiliated voters strongly believe that a double standard is being applied to Palin because she is a woman. Democrats disagree. Perhaps most stunning is that, among unaffiliated voters, just 42% believe Obama has better experience than Palin to be President. Thirty-seven percent (37%) say Palin has the edge on experience. Again, most of the interviews for this survey were completed before Palin’s well-received speech last night.
