palin7.jpgThe new Rasmussen poll contains more evidence that Sarah Palin has appeal beyond the pro-life crowd:

…[F]ollowing a Vice Presidential acceptance speech viewed live by more than 40 million people, Palin is viewed favorably by 58% of American voters.
….Perhaps most stunning is the fact that Palin’s favorable ratings are now a point higher than either man at the top of the Presidential tickets this year. As of Friday morning, Obama and McCain are each viewed favorably by 57% of voters. Biden is viewed favorably by 48%.

Percentage of non-affiliated voters with a favorable view of Palin: 59.
And:

The Palin pick has also improved perceptions of John McCain…. Among unaffiliated voters, favorable opinions of McCain have increased by eleven percentage points in a week–from 54% before the Palin announcement to 65% today.

Oh, yeah, the poll also shows the GOP really loves her:

There is a strong partisan gap when it comes to perceptions of Palin. Eighty-nine percent (89%) of Republicans give her favorable reviews…

Sarah Palin. She’s not just for pro-lifers anymore.
