A survey suggests that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s favorability rating has dropped among likely Republican voters in Iowa.

The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll says the rating has dropped to 65 percent in a poll taken earlier this month, compared with 71 percent in November 2009.

The former vice presidential candidate has not publicly announced whether she’ll run for president next year.

The poll of 800 Iowa adults was conducted Feb. 13-16 by Selzer & Co. of Des Moines. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The results include responses from 189 Republican likely voters, which have a margin of error of plus or minus 7.1 percentage points.

Representatives of Palin’s political action committee declined to comment on the new poll.

  1. 65% of Iowa Republicans have a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin!?

    We’re not talking “differing perspectives” here, we are talking mass hallucination!

  2. Only if you are a liberal spender of big government and just love handouts Jeff. But I believe she did pretty well in Alaska and made a darn good vice presidential candidate.
    It is pretty obvious by now that Obama does not know what to do

  3. Why the obsession over Sara’s favorable ratings one way or another. It must be a measure of your personal destruction success. That seems to be your studied profession. If you folks spent as much time on Mamma Obama’s shortcomings as you do on Sara we might overlook some of your overblown savagery…. .
