"A majority of Americans now believe that Sarah Palin would be unqualified to serve as president if it became necessary, and her unfavorable rating has doubled
And on her favorability rating:
Forty percent now have an unfavorable view of Palin, up from 27 percent a month ago and from 21 percent in late August
Only 24 percent of those polled approve of Bush's job as president, an all-time low for a CNN survey
And on the state of the race overall:
Fifty-three percent of likely voters questioned in the poll say they are backing Obama for president, with 45 percent supporting McCain.
That 8-point lead is double the 4-point lead Obama held in the last CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll, taken in mid-September.
The poll was conducted Friday through Sunday.
And here's how the Christian Science Monitor's Jimmy Orr (who I believe used to be a Republican) very amusingly portrays the state of the race:
Full steam ahead! Keep shovelling Sarah!
Another juicy quote from this article:
The McCain campaign received some good news today. The study released this morning that showed one in four mammals are in danger of becoming extinct did not include the McCain-Palin ticket.
This is a very amusing, must read article:
McCain/Palin in full panic mode. Erratic and hot-headed. Obama and Biden stay cool and collected, like a good President should.
