Yes, she can.

What are you talking about Duke?  Things are great so far.   I do have to cling to God no matter what.  I have nothing against this at all,  but in my class there are 9 blacks and 4 whites.  African Americans are quite prevalent in that part of Tulsa.  I don't mind it at all,  but it is an interesting fact in white Oklahoma.

Whoa, didn't see that coming.

I'm looking forward to her being the next senator from Alaska more, though.  She has to have more credibility before she makes a run.

She should probably learn some more about Africa.

     91% favorable for Palin? 80% favorable for Huckabee? Where did they poll? Bob Jones University?

Other polls have shown Palin with a favorability rating of around 80-85% among Republicans.  91% might be a record.  The Huckabee and Romney numbers are also much higher than what they were among Republicans back in February (which is about the last time people were doing polling on Huckabee and Romney).  This Pew poll from early Feb. has Huckabee at 52-29 and Romney at 54-29 among Republicans:

I can understand that, because that was in the middle of a hard fought primary campaign, the favorable numbers within the party would rise after it was over, but not *that* much.

     I find it amazing that her numbers are that high. Among the people I know in everyday life, she has a 0% favorability rating. Especially among Republicans.

If Obama looks unbeatable, they might go with her. She would probably do about as well as Dukakis electorally. I don't see Obama making inroads into any other McCain states except for Arizona & Missouri against her.

Exactly my first thoughts when I read the title of this thread moments ago.

I would have assumed that Governor Palin's popularity amongst a vast majority of Republicans, with the exception of those on the far-right would have rapidly decline during the campaign. I'm quite surprised that her numbers in this Rasmussen poll are quite the contrary.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

no...  obviously in the early polls that had Gore ahead, nobody knew 9/11 would happen, especially not Gore himself.  I am sure that he 100% intended to run again until 9/11 changed the landscape.

As much as I trust Rasmussen I think there must be something wrong with this poll. 91% favorability among Republicans, come on. Two other polls have something entirely different and think the truth lies somewhere in between them.

I'm sure Alaska has no shortage of competent, intelligent and very conservative Republicans to consider as Ted Stevens' successor.  Sarah Palin might be Alaskans' choice, but they could do a lot better.
