Sarah Palin's Unfavorability Numbers Hit New High, Survey Finds

Washington (CNN) – Sarah Palin is getting more bad polling news: her unfavorable rating has reached an all time high in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey.

According to the new poll released Wednesday, 53 percent of all Americans say they hold a negative or very negative view of the former Alaska governor while only 25 percent give Palin high marks.

That compares to the 50 percent unfavorable rating Palin registered in a similar NBC/Wall Street Journal poll last December and a 45 percent unfavorable rating the former vice presidential nominee garnered one year ago.

And less than 50 percent of Republicans polled have a favorable view of the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee for president, 25 percent say they have an unfavorable view. When in comes to those without allegiance to a political party, almost two in ten independents have a favorable view of Palin and more than half have an unfavorable opinion of her. Eight in ten Democrats do not have a favorable opinion of Palin.

The NBC/WSJ poll - which surveyed 1,000 Americans by telephone from March 31-April 4 and carries a 3 percentage point sampling error – is the latest in a string of polls showing Palin headed in the wrong direction as she contemplates a presidential bid.

According to a Gallup survey late last month, Palin's support among likely Republican primary voters continues to decline. That survey showed the Alaska Republican drawing 12 percent of support from Republicans and Republican-leaning independents – a 4 percent decline from a similar survey conducted one earlier.
