By Susan Page, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — Sarah Palin's bombshell that she is resigning as Alaska governor actually has boosted her a bit among Republicans, a nationwide USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, though it also has dented her standing among Democrats and independents.

Two-thirds of Republicans want Palin, the party's vice presidential nominee in 2008, to be "a major national political figure" in the future. Three-fourths of Democrats hope she won't be.

Independents by 55%-34% would prefer she leave the national stage.

The findings underscore how polarized opinions of Palin were even before Friday's surprise announcement. Seven in 10 polled say their views weren't affected by her decision. Among those whose opinions shifted, Democrats by a 4-1 ratio and independents by 2-to-1 view her less favorably. Republicans are somewhat inclined to see her more favorably.


"For independents and Democrats, she's already not their candidate, and with Republicans her support is not based on her record as governor of Alaska," says GOP consultant Alex Castellanos.

The poll Monday of 1,000 adults — including 321 Democrats, 323 independents and 316 Republicans — has a margin of error of +/–3 percentage points for the full sample and 6 points for the partisan subsamples.

Palin's complaints about unfair treatment by the news media resonate with many respondents. Three-fourths of Republicans, more than half of independents and a third of Democrats say coverage of Palin has been unfairly negative.

When it comes to a potential presidential run, the USA TODAY Poll displays Palin's strength in the Republican base and weakness among swing voters, who traditionally decide national elections. Republicans by 71%-27% say they'd be likely to vote for her if she ran for president in 2012, while independents by 51%-44% would not.

"Don't know what the future holds," Palin said Tuesday on ABC. "I'm not gonna shut any door. That — who knows what doors open?"

Levi is a 19 year old fornicator who left a child behind.

I don't value his opinion.

He was a distraction in '08.
He's a distraction now.

Um, it takes two and how do you know that HE left a child behind?

If you don't value the opinions of those who had sex outside of marriage than you are going to have to start ignoring A LOT of people...

His opinions seem to be entirely based on a bitter break up.

Levi Johnston calls Sarah Palin 'snobby,' says his family is not 'white trash' on CBS' 'Early Show'
Quote:
The father of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's first grandchild slammed the vanquished vice presidential candidate for snobby behavior, declaring the biggest misconception about him is "my family's white trash."

In an exclusive interview on CBS' "The Early Show," hunky baby daddy Levi Johnston said Wednesday that he's heart-broken over the end of his engagement with Palin's daughter, Bristol. He also accused the governor and her family of lying.
I'll look elsewhere than his drivel.

He obviously isn't raising him.

He may have backed down from child support.

Also...

On Levi
Quote:
"I'm not here to talk about my personal life," Palin told Lauer, though she did say, with no further explanation, even when asked for it, "I'd love Levi to be part of [Tripp's] life."

She had the nearly exact same words for Cuomo, too, saying, "I'd love Levi to be a part of [Tripp's] life, and I know he will be. Every child needs a father."
What does that indicate?

I admit my biases.

That's why I word my observations as such.

So far, time hasn't told a whole lot.

All it indicates to me is wishful thinking.

So now you are not so sure that he has "left a child behind"? Maybe you shouldn't be so quick to judge.

Rational people can speculate that Levi is a useful distraction.

I'm suprised they haven't been using Peggy Noonan and Kathleen Parker as well.

Did I just give you guys an idea?
