Rasmussen: 59% of GOP Voters Say Palin Shares Their Values

I found this at NRO's "Rogue" blog, which is a very good blog so far.

I know Palinmania has arrived with her Oprah appearance today and the book coming out tomorrow. I just wanted to pass this along because it is great news! It shows that we're not going to let the corrupt media pick our candidates anymore. More and more Republicans are supporting Palin and breaking away from the GOP RINO tendencies.

Rasmussen: 59% of GOP Voters Say Palin Shares Their Values [Robert Costa]
From Rasmussen:
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Republican voters say former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin shares the values of most GOP voters throughout the nation.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 21% of Republican voters disagree and think the 2008 vice presidential candidate does not share their values. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided.

By contrast, 74% of Republicans say their party’s representatives in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters nationwide over the past several years. Only 18% of Republican voters believe their elected officials have done a good job representing the base.

The findings in these two surveys highlight the political debate within the Republican Party. Party leaders worry that Palin is pushing the GOP too far to the right to win general elections by aligning herself with Tea Party voters frustrated with both parties in Washington and the big government policies they have produced.

Still, just 18% of Republicans - and 26% of voters nationwide - see Palin as a divisive force within the GOP. A plurality believes Palin is representative of a new direction for the Republican Party. That view is held by 57% of Republicans and 41% of all voters. A plurality of Democrats aren’t sure what to think of Palin’s role within the opposing party.
