Despite poll findings, there is still a big audience that isn’t tired of Sarah Palin

Fact checked

According to a report from The Washington Post, “An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll released on Wednesday reveals something that an exasperated portion of the country likely feels is overdue: The majority of Americans — 54 percent — wish that Sarah Palin would step back into the shadows of public discourse. As we noted, that includes over 60 percent of Democrats and almost 40 percent of Republicans.

Meaning that Sarah Palin must constrain her possible media audience to only 46 percent of the population of the United States, and a little over half of her party. Somehow, we doubt she’ll starve.  Palin has been remarkably adept at parlaying her 2008 vice presidential nomination into this new career. Or, really, not a new career. Before she was in politics, she worked briefly as a sports reporter for an Anchorage TV station. She’s been in front of a camera for longer than she’s been on a ballot. So we really shouldn’t find it surprising that, lifted up onto the national platform, she’s figured out a way to keep from falling off the edge.”
