Surprise? First Two National Polls Find Palin Gains LESS Support from Women

By Greg Mitchell

Published: August 30, 2008 1:35 PM ET

NEW YORK The first national polls on John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin yesterday came out today from Rasmussen and Gallup -- and contrary to what the GOP probably hoped, she scored less well with women than men.

Here's a finding from Gallup: Among Democratic women -- including those who may be disappointed that Hillary Clinton did not win the Democratic nomination -- 9% say Palin makes them more likely to support McCain, 15% less likely.

From Rasmussen: Some 38% of men said they were more likely to vote for McCain now, but only 32% of women. By a narrow 41% to 35% margin, men said she was not ready to be president -- but women soundly rejected her, 48% to 25%.

Only 9% of Obama supporters said they might be more likely to vote for McCain.

Overall, voters expressed a favorable impression of her by a 53/26 margin, but there was a severe gender gap on this: Men embraced her at 58% to 23%, while for women it was 48/30.

And by a 29/44 margin, men and women together, they do not believe that she is ready to be President.

As for voters not affiliated with either major party, 37% are more likely to vote for McCain and 28% less likely to do so.

Gallup is now out with its own initial poll. It also shows women with a slightly less favorable view of Palin. An excerpt from USA Today:

There is wide uncertainty about whether she's qualified to be president. In the poll, taken Friday, 39% say she is ready to serve as president if needed, 33% say she isn't and 29% have no opinion.

That's the lowest vote of confidence in a running mate since the elder George Bush chose then-Indiana senator Dan Quayle to join his ticket in 1988. In comparison, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden was seen as qualified by 57%-18% after Democrat Barack Obama chose him as a running mate last week.....

Among all those surveyed, 35% call Obama's speech at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium Thursday night excellent, 23% good, 15% "just OK," 3% poor and 4% "terrible." Sixteen percent say they didn't see it and 14% have no opinion. That's higher than the ratings for acceptance speeches by President Bush and Democrat John Kerry in 2004, by Bush and Democrat Al Gore in 2000 and by Republican Bob Dole in 1996.

Asked about the Democratic convention's impact, 43% say it makes them more likely to vote for Obama, 29% less likely. Nineteen percent say it won't make a difference.

She's hot. Women don't like other women when the other women are hot. What did McCain expect?

In a short 48 hours, we already know more about the political positions, executive actions and the elected offices of Gov Palin than we do after 17 months of the Messiah's campaining ( my spelling).

It was funny, because as I was getting ready for work this morning I watched an interview with McCain's wife. There are many things that are clear to me know.

1) She hates Obama from the bottom of her heart.

2) She has no fucking clue why they chose Sarah as VP running mate.

3) She has been force feed reasons and last minute talk.

The interview was flawed because I caught 5 times where she clearly fucked up. One of which she started to talk more about her self then McCain, signs of a jealous wife.

Even bigger when asked about Sarah's experience, she said she was more then qualified based on Sarah's experience, then went down the line in this order.

Well 1 she is a Mother with a son going to Iraq
2) She became Major
3) She now is Governor

I take shits with more experience. This is the funniest thing I've seen on TV, and its shit like this that makes me hate politics.

Then you haven't been paying attention for 17 months.

I suspect that has been a longer trend.
