• Sarah Palin Surprisingly Popular with Willfully Ignorant Voters

    Are you ready to have your explode from disbelief? Are you prepared to expose yourself to a fact so shocking that your fragile sanity will surely be rent to tatters in its wake? Are you willing to learn a thing so completely counter-intuitive that you shall be left with no recourse save the soothing descent into madness?

    Okay, then. Prepare yeself: Sarah Palin is the 2012 candidate of choice amongst birthers

    "A 51% majority of national GOP primary voters erroneously think President Obama was not born in the U.S. 28% know that he was. With the latter, Palin's favorability rating is 41-52 — other than Ron Paul, the only candidate these voters view negatively. But with birthers, she has a soaring 83-12, far higher than for any of the others."

    Birthers like Palin more than all the other 2012 GOP hopefuls to an overwhelming degree. And she is the only 2012 hopeful aside from Ron Paul who is viewed negatively by Republicans who know the President was born in America. I'd say this tells us a lot about the secret to Palin's appeal and about who she appeals to.

    It just doesn't add up! How could this be? How could this beeeeeee?!?!?!
