And yet we keep treating Sarah Palin as a movement leader

This exhaustive survey of polling data shows what Nate Silver and others have already spelled out — Sarah Palin would need to fly through the sky and stop an incoming asteroid from destroying Disney World to win the 2012 election.

The big number here: She’s rated 33% favorable and 58% unfavorable … in *Alaska*.

Public Policy Polling: Palin State by State

Between this and Rebecca Black, it’s obvious: To succeed in life, be unpopular.

(Yes, I know the link gives a thorough beatdown on the Forbes calculation that Rebecca Black is already a millionaire. But it demonstrates that she and her parents are still turning a tidy profit on that $2,000 investment. And I could probably buy a new house if I were hired to ghost-write a book for her.)
