New numbers from Scott Rasmussen indicate that a full 51% of Likely Voters believe that the media is trying to hurt Sarah Palin, while only 5% think the MSM is trying to help her. Only 35% think that the MSM has been providing unbiased coverage (wonder who they are voting for?).
It is pretty obvious what’s been happening in the MSM’s nearly open advocacy for Obama, especially to those of us who follow these developments closely, but it seems like the average likely voter is also seeing the bias. At the end of the day, the impression that Palin is being mistreated only helps her amongst important voter groups, like independent women.
