Americans agree: 59% say Palin couldn't be president

Any 2012 presidential bid is looking that little bit less viable today for Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska and high-profile vice-presidential candidate for the 2008 election. A new poll, released today, reveals that 59% of people who responded believe that she lacks the skills necessary for the job.

In the survey, conducted as a joint venture by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair, conducted Aug. 3-5 by CBS News among 847 adult respondents, 59% told pollsters that they thought Palin could not be an effective president compared to only 26% who said that she could be.

Eighty percent of liberals reportedly said that Palin couldn't be an effective president, while still under half - 47% - of Republicans believed that she could be.

The latest ratings put her in a position where she is '52.7% unfavorable'.
