Sarah Palin’s First Numbers

Posted by Ryan on August 30, 2008

Renowned pollster Scott Rasmussen has polled the immediate reaction of voters to Alaska Governor and GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

67% had NO idea who she was before Friday.

Yet, amongst all voters 53% have a positive rating of her (including 29% VERY favorable), while 26% do not like her at all.  In contrast, the better-known Biden’s initial numbers were only 43% positive.

The internals indicate what we’ve been hearing over the last 24 hours from the Right — this pick is going over very well amongst Republicans, and the initial impression Palin made is more positive than negative amongst the general voting public.  Phew!  Now she needs to keep it up.  People can change their minds really fast if she does not take care of her momentum or gets defined too early.
