It’s the first time the survey has shown Palin drastically losing support within her own party.
Just 58% of self-identified Republicans said they view Palin favorably, down 12 points since last October. At the same time, the percentage of Republicans who have an unfavorable opinion of her leapt from 21% in October to 37% now.
37% unfavorable within your own party is tantamount to political death.
This is bad news for Democrats who hoped Palin might win the 2012 nomination and then die.
Not to worry — there's always Michelle.
