Poll: Palin decision doesn't change minds (CNNPolitics)
From CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser

WASHINGTON (CNN) It was a stunning announcement that caught many across the country completely by surprise.

Now, four days after Sarah Palin announced that she will step down later this month as governor of Alaska, a new national poll by USA Today/Gallup indicates that seven in 10 Americans say Palin's decision had no affect on their opinion of her.

The survey also suggests a wide partisan split over whether respondents would likely vote for Palin if she decides to run for the White House in 2012. More than seven in 10 Republicans said they would be likely to vote for Palin for the presidency. That number drops to 34 percent among independents and to 17 percent among Democrats.

"Many Americans have deeply-held opinions about Palin as a result of the national campaign in 2008," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Assuming Palin decides to run for the White House in 2012, public opinion is less likely to be affected by her resignation, and more likely to be swayed by what she does once she leaves office."

The USA Today/Gallup poll was conducted Monday, three days after Palin announced that she would resign as governor, with 1,000 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

It didn't affect my opinion, except to confirm it. :P

1. What 17 percent of DEMS would vote Palin? LOL
Sounds a little far fetched...

3. You can't change what you don't have, right?

4. Nice to see...
...that the Gallup organization is doing everything it can to run damage control for the Republican party. Two polls in the last week with "good news" for the Puggies.

Both polls are getting plenty of airplay on the "liberal" media.

Polls at this point are effectively meaningless. Obama and other Dems re-election hopes depend on how the economy does in the next 3 years.
