New NBC/WSJ Poll: Sarah Palin and George W. Bush Liked By Same Percentage of Americans

by geoffgresh

For a little background on this, let’s consult the Balloon Juice Lexicon.

27 Percenters – Those Americans who will predictably vote against their own best interests. In his seminal post on the Crazification Factor, John Rogers used the 2004 Obama/Keyes senate race as a measure: Keyes was from out of state, so you can eliminate any established political base; both candidates were black, so you can factor out racism; and Keyes was plainly, obviously, completely crazy. Batshit crazy. Head-trauma crazy. But 27% of the population of Illinois voted for him. They put party identification, personal prejudice, whatever ahead of rational judgement. Hell, even like 5% of Democrats voted for him. That’s crazy behaviour. I think you have to assume a 27% Crazification Factor in any population.”

Now for the poll results (PDF).

The Quitter:

Very Negative/Somewhat Negative – 43%

Neutral – 24%

Very Positive/Somewhat Positive – 29%

The Decider:

Very Negative/Somewhat Negative – 50%

Neutral – 21%

Very Positive/Somewhat Positive – 29%

There you have it.

As a side note, Adolf Hussein Obamastalin’s numbers are 47 positive/40 negative – meaning he’s 60% more popular than both The Quitter and The Decider.
