Is Sarah Palin Popular?
"The Reformers who seem to want to destroy Sarah Palin are picking an incredibly self-destructive fight for the simple reason that, as a political matter, Palin is popular and they aren't (How many divisions does David Brooks have?). Rather, they should be fighting to win Palin and Palin supporters to their cause."
Fellow National Review contributors Kathleen Parker and Christopher Buckley found the Palin pick unacceptable. Parker wrote, "If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself."
As for Goldberg's claim of Palin's popularity, a recent NBC News/">Wall Street Journal poll tells a different story.
Believe Palin is qualified? 55% no, 40% yes
Palin favorables: 38% positive, 47% negative.
Goldberg reads news reports and polls every day. He still refuses to believe that Palin is unpopular. The Goldberg conservatives are the reasons the GOP is in trouble.
