Majority of Americans don't want to see Sarah Palin hold office again: Poll

Washington, July 14 (ANI): Most Americans don't want former Alaska governor Sarah Palin as a U.S. senator, or as any other public official, a new poll has found.

According to the HuffPost/YouGov Poll, nearly 49 percent respondents don't want Palin to hold public office again, as compared to only 35 percent who said yes.

Palin said on 'The Sean Hannity Show' that she has 'considered' a run for the Senate seat in 2014, currently held by Senator Mark Begich (D-Alaska), the Huffington Post reports.

There was a big partisan divide on the notion of Palin returning to public office in the poll as 72 percent of Republicans said they would support that, as compared to 77 percent of Democrats, who would not want.

The poll found that a 46 percent to 33 percent plurality of independents said they don't want Palin to hold office again.

Overall, only 38 percent of Americans said they have a favorable opinion of Palin, while 49 percent said they have an unfavorable opinion. (ANI)
