According to the last Rassmussen poll, taken Tuesday a day before her appearance at the Republican National Convention, 52 Percent of American voters have a favorable impression of Sarah Palin.
I think she will have a considerable bounce after people see that she is a very smart and motivating person who is overqualified for the job of Vice President.
From Rassussen site :
After a long weekend of Democratic criticism of John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate, over half of voters (52%) still have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the Alaska governor. Thirty-one percent (31%) view her very favorably.
Voters are evenly divided on whether Palin was the right choice for McCain and whether her selection makes them more or less likely to vote for the Republican candidate. But 69% of GOP voters believe the choice was a good one, while nearly as many Democrats (63%) disagree. Unaffiliated voters are evenly divided as well.
Thirty-six percent (36%) have an unfavorable view of Palin, including 16% with a Very Unfavorable opinion.
This is very encouraging news. I think she is a great asset for the party.
