From a new Rassmussen survey:

Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Sarah Palin?

21% Very favorable

30% Somewhat favorable

14% Somewhat unfavorable

29% Very unfavorable

5% Not sure

That's 51% now.

I listened to a pundit last night say that the biggest reason people say that they like her is because they feel that she is who she says she is and that they trust her. It's the way she lives her life. Little things like this, from her new book:

Just before I left the hotel room to hit the convention stage, on the evening of September 3, I noticed that Trig needed changing. I also noticed that we had run out of diapers. After a frantic, hotel-wide search, someone found a stack, and the last thing I did before heading down to give the biggest speech of my life was to change the baby.

It’s the kind of thing that keeps you grounded. (more excerpts at NRO)

She refuses to forget what is truly important, or to forget who she is and what she values. She knows that to give those things up for political points takes away the whole reason for being there.

No wonder so many trust and admire her. But not everyone.

Pretend "moderate" Democrat Juan Williams said this weekend that she is self-centered and a bad mother.
