Independents Think Charlie Sheen Would Be a Better President Than Sarah Palin
Charlie Sheen or Sarah Palin? Charlie Sheen or Sarah Palin? Apparently we are not the only people struggling with the difficult question of which of those two incredibly qualified, sane, intelligent, politically savvy personas we would elect president. Thankfully, there has been a poll, and we have answers. Via Public Policy Polling, independents would apparently elect Charlie Sheen before they would elect Sarah Palin, by a 41/36 margin. Is this good or is this bad? We really can't say. Then there's this...
Despite her deficit with independents Palin does lead Sheen 49-29 overall. We also tested Barack Obama against Sheen and the President leads 57-24.
Well, that's something of a relief. Also reassuring is that "Sheen is one of the most unpopular figures" the organization has ever polled on, with only 10 percent of Americans rating him favorably. So, Charlie, don't go getting any ideas. (Unfollow him on Twitter!)
