Do you think Sarah Palin is qualified to be president? Well, if you are one of the 7 in 10 people who participated in CNN’s recent survey, the answer is a resounding “no.”
Although Sarah Palin may have side-stepped the question about whether she was planning on running for president in 2012 during her recent appearance on Oprah to promote her new book, the majority of Americans surveyed said they would not vote for the former Alaska governor, even if she did run.
“The perception that Palin is not qualified to be president puts her significantly behind two potential rivals for the GOP nomination in 2012 – Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee,” said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. (CNN)
