A new poll shows that Sarah Palin’s favorability rating has dropped to just 39 percent, compared with 48 percent who view her unfavorably. Most of the decline has come from her fellow Republicans and conservatives, and this poll doesn’t even take into account her bizarre comments about death panels — which we’re cautiously, perhaps naïvely optimistic did not help her with most sentient beings. Also, 5 percent of people have never heard of Sarah Palin. [Political Ticker/CNN]
