What do Alaskans think about Gov. Palin? by The Elephant's Child

The New York Times has a long article from the Obama campaign in today’s paper on Sarah Palin.  They sent some 30 attorneys with pockets full of cash off to Alaska to dig up dirt.  The Obama campaign must be really, really scared of her.  Surely most Alaskans must have some nasty things to say.

A new poll from American Viewpoint (not commissioned by the McCain campaign) asks about the job approval for Governor Palin.  Overall: 86%.  Among Independents: 86%.  Among Democrats: 75%. 

Overall: McCain/Palin: 57%       Obama/Biden: 33%

Among Independents:  McCain/Palin: 50%     Obama/Biden:  37%

Voters who say Energy is Top Issue:  McCain/Palin: 74%    Obama/Biden:  18%

Polls don’t really mean too much at this point, but perhaps nasty personal attacks on Governor Palin aren’t the best of strategies.
