Amusing Poll of the Day

Public Policy Polling, most likely in an effort to drive more traffic to their site, has run a poll putting Charlie Sheen up against Sarah Palin. Palin wins overall (by a lower margin than Obama), but Sheen beats Palin among independents:

We’ve found a lot of brutal poll numbers for Sarah Palin so far in 2011: down in South Dakota, down in South Carolina, down in Arizona, only up by 1 point in Texas, only up by 1 point in Nebraska to name a few. But this has to be the worst- independent voters say they would support Charlie Sheen over Palin for President by a 41/36 margin. Seriously.

Despite her deficit with independents Palin does lead Sheen 49-29 overall. We also tested Barack Obama against Sheen and the President leads 57-24.

They also found that “Sheen is one of the most unpopular figures we’ve ever polled on.” In the current hyper-polarized political world it is not very surprising that partisans would support Sheen over the opposing party’s candidate. It is embarrassing for Palin that independents would choose Sheen over her considering all the other signs of declining support in recent weeks.
