Survey: Among Republicans, Sarah Palin has highest favorability of any potential candidate

A new Public Policy Polling survey of 544 “usual Republican primary voters nationwide” from June 9-12, shows good news for Sarah Palin.

When asked, “Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Sarah Palin?,” 62 percent said they had a favorable view, while just 27 percent had an unfavorable view (11 percent were not sure).

There is a caveat, however. Alhough Palin “continues to have the highest favorability of the potential Republican candidates,” PPP also notes that “there continues to be a disconnect between GOP voters liking Palin and thinking she would be a good President or Presidential candidate.”
