Pouting Palin’s Prospects Plummet In Poll Plunge

Smile for the camera!

Her 15 minutes of fame are quickly ticking away. The bloom has come off the rose. Sarah Palin is no longer the “It Girl”. The former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska is spiraling downward towards irrelevancy.

As each week passes the American public is treated to the release of a new national poll which reflects Sarah Palin’s decline. This final week of 2010 is no exception. A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released yesterday reveals that as President Barack Obama’s standing among Democrats soars, Sarah Palin’s standing among Republicans is dropping precipitously. A whopping 78% of Democrats say they want to see Obama at the top of their party’s ticket in 2012, with only 19 percent saying they would prefer someone else as the Democratic presidential nominee. The 19 percent figure is the lowest figure since March, when the question was first asked. In stark contrast to Obama’s support, Palin’s prospects are dimming like those soon to be extinct incandescent light bulbs. Only 49%  of Republicans say that they are likely to support her for the Republican nomination in 2012. CNN reports that that is a huge 18% drop since December of 2008, when over 67% said they were likely to support Palin.

Indeed, Sarah Palin is now a distant fourth even within her own party. The poll reveals that 67% of Republicans now support Mike Huckabee(hound) the former Governor of Arkansas; 59% support former Massachusetts Governor Mitt(wit) Romney: and 54% support the former disgraced Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. It must be humiliating to Palin to trail that trifecta of trivialism.

Much of the blame for Palin’s decline lies with the Queen of Quit herself. By acting like a Hollywood diva, she has alienated such traditional Republicans (and not coincidentally, Fox News co-workers/contributors) as Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer. When those two pundits repeatedly appear on Palin’s own network and question her fitness for national office, it is only a matter of time before the station’s mindless, conservative puppet audience begins to follow suit. A good example of her decline in popularity among conservatives was the disappointing sales figures of her most recent ghost-written book as opposed to her earlier ghost-written tome. Additionally, even the masses of poorly-educated, gun-toting, Bible-thumping conservative rednecks must have eventually caught on to the fact that starring in a television reality series is not very Presidential behavior. Her crib-noted hands and penchant for communication via the sophomoric Facebook and Twitter are also viewd as net negatives. In short, Sarah Palin is finally being viewed by conservatives as the unelectable clown that she truly is.

POLL-SLIDE

(sung to the TV theme of, “Rawhide”)

Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Poll Slide

Keep movin’, movin’, movin’
People disapprovin’
Sarah’s not improvin’, Poll-Slide!
She cannot understand ‘em,
She hopes results are random,
Soon she’ll be in a double-wide.
There’s no way of definin’
Just why the polls declinin’, declinin’ like a massive
Landslide.

Headin’ down, movin’ fast,
Losin’ ground, ship her out,
Headin’ down, movin’ fast
Poll-Slide!
Kick her out,  shoot her down,
Send her home, push her out,
Kick her butt, fallin’ fast
Poll-Slide!

Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Her eyeballs are ballin’
How come no-one’s callin’?
Poll-Slide!
It looks like stormy weather
And she’s light like a feather
She’ll be swept under by the tide.
She’ll be unemployed soon,
A wolf killin’ buffoon,
And all this resultin’ from her lies

Headin’ down, movin’ fast,
Losin’ ground, ship her out,
Headin’ down, movin’ fast
Poll-Slide!
Kick her out,  shoot her down,
Send her home, push her out,
Kick her butt, fallin’ fast
Poll-Slide!

Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Poll Slide

    Palin’s biggest complaint with the McCain Campaign was that they kept her hidden away, out of public view, as if she were some sort of dangerous and deranged clueless nincompoop.

    In a recent interview, Barbara Walters noticed that Palin’s poll numbers have been sinking. Palin, naturally, believes she can overcome her low favorability ratings with a stellar performance in the primaries: “a primary is months in the process and there are thankfully many debates.”
