Palin not in Oprah’s race
*Â According to the latest Rasmussen survey, Sarah Palin is nowÂ more popular than Barack ObamaÂ orÂ John McCain.
I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her onÂ after the campaign is over.
This willÂ explodeÂ in Oprah’s face.
Media whore O’Reilly promotes the Bommah:
This surprises me – and should alarm Obama:
McCain’s address at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night was seen by about 38.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Obama received 38.4 million. That meansMcCain’s speech is now the most-watched in convention historyÂ — 41% higher than President Bush’s acceptance speech four years ago, and 1% higher than Obama’s address last week.
So which candidate has the buzz, after all?
One further point.Â I wrote yesterdayÂ that McCain’s speech seemed a bit flat at times. It wasn’t delivered fluently. Yet I remember slabs of it that way I haven’t remembered Obama’s more soaring oratory. Maybe that’s because what McCain said seemed so tangible, with his astonishing personal narrative vividly explaining the political stance he was outlining. It rang true and loud.
I’m not denying that Obama symbolises something hopeful, even redemptive, but his message is built on mere words, not great deeds, and so are more easily blown away by the breeze of time.
Palin is viewed favorably by 58% of American voters.Â The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% hold an unfavorable view of the self-described hockey mom….
Perhaps most stunning is the fact that Palin’s favorable ratings are now a point higher than either man at the top of the Presidential tickets this year. As of Friday morning, Obama and McCain are each viewed favorably by 57% of voters. Biden is viewed favorably by 48%.
AndÂ to repeat: the dismissal of her as a mere token woman, sent to hoover up the votes of Hillary Clinton’s disappointed fans, is a fundamental misreading of her appeal (as well as a patronising and sexist one):
She earns positive reviews from 65% of men and 52% of women.
