Sarah Palin Not Fit to Be President: 59% of America Thinks So

Sarah Palin may be on a hot streak with her congressional endorsements, but this ought to take some of the wind out of her sails: 59 percent of Americans think Sarah Palin is not fit to be president of the United States, according to a new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll. Meanwhile, 26 percent say they think she would be an effective commander-in-chief. The poll also shows Republicans splitting 47-40 on the question of whether Palin can lead the country. Those numbers should be comforting to liberals, but another question is upsetting: 76 percent of respondents said Mel Gibson’s recent misogynistic and racist tirade won’t affect whether or not they’ll see his movies.
