Palin ‘most untrustworthy’ figure in American politics
A new Politico poll released Tuesday finds that President Barack Obama enjoys broad support — some 66 percent trust Obama a “great deal” or “some” — and is named the most popular figure in politics today.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, found themselves on the opposite side of the popularity fence.
Palin, who enjoyed broad support among the conservative base of the Republican Party during her run for the vice presidency last year, got the highest “untrustworthy” rating of all the major political figures surveyed at 33 percent. Voters were asked if they trusted the politician “to identify the right solutions to the problems we face as a nation.”
