Now today's poll result at Election Meter.Com LINK has her approval also at a significant level.
The new 6000+ aggregate vote EM Poll gives Palin a 55.61% approval rating. This is her ninth rating above 45% by one point or more increases in this poll since 2010, and shows the long struggle against media distortion she has had to undertake. Still, the slow and steady rise continues-as Palin's polling over the last year indicates clearly.
Her strong statements on President Obama's handling of the economy during and after the 2012 election have clearly elicited a positive response. Voters look for strength of character and unwavering conviction which, whether one agrees with her views or not, Palin has in abundance
Her winning endorsements for high profile campaigns e.g. Deb Fischer's and Ben Sasse's come from behind Senate primary wins, and Ted Cruz's remarkable rise in Texas-all of whom won their election campaigns with Palin's support adds to th eperception of the influence and power of Palin.
Yes certainly, the Election Meter poll is an on-line poll and can be discounted to a degree because of that. However, when Palin was at her absolute nadir in this poll in 2010 at 19.2% her enemies would have seized on it as being representative of a general feeling.
The longer term graphs which, because of the time frame involved, must be valid in the wider context they support. Surely the absolute polling height of 72% in 2008 was a genuine reflection of reality at that time.
