There is a growing sense that the former Alaska governor is not qualified to serve as president, with more than seven in 10 Americans now saying she is unqualified, up from 60 percent in a November survey. Even among Republicans, a majority now say Palin lacks the qualifications necessary for the White House.
Palin has lost ground among conservative Republicans, who would be crucial to her hopes if she seeks the party's presidential nomination in 2012. Forty-five percent of conservatives now consider her as qualified for the presidency, down sharply from 66 percent who said so last fall.
I'm reminded of the clip of Pam Geller's twitching reaction to Ron Reagan Jr. and Stephanie Miller claiming that Palin is essentially an intellectual midget and lacks the ability to even articulate her most basic ideals she allegedly holds dear. These are the people that think Palin could serve as President. And that, if anything, should show the American people who makes up her base - the wing-nuttiest of wingnuts.
