A star was born

So shows a new Fox News poll of the presidential race:

"A solid majority of voters (54 percent) say they have a favorable opinion of Palin, while 27 percent assign unfavorable ratings. This gives the 44-year-old GOP vice presidential nominee the best ratio of favorable to unfavorable responses (2.0:1) of any of the four candidates tested in the survey."

By the way, i think Republicans do themselves a disservice by making a big deal about Barack Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comments of yesterday. The context of the statements make it clear that Obama was referring to John McCain and his record, not to Gov. Palin. Obama and his camp are making plenty of actual mistakes right now; focus on those. Don't go off half-cocked and discredit your legitimate points.
