Palin and the Public: Voters Have a Problem with Saint Sarah

President Palin—don't bet on it. Despite her appeal to the radical right and highly deluded folks, Sarah Palin is not winning converts.

Check out some recent numbers:
59 percent of Americans believe Sarah Palin lacks the “ability to be an effective president,” according to a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll. Only 26 percent of adults said she would have the ability to be effective, while that number is considerably higher — 47 percent — among Republicans. Only 21 percent of independents said Palin would have the skills to be effective.
