Washington, August 2 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has blamed the media for her upside-down approval rating among independents in a Quinnipiac University poll that was conducted on July 13-19, this year.
According to Politico, a recent polling by Quinnipiac University has shown that 50 percent of independents viewed the former vice presidential GOP nominee in an unfavorable light. Just a third said they viewed her favorably.
"As for the unfavorable, I don't blame people for not really knowing what it is, in some instances, what I stand for or what my record is. If I believed everything I read or heard in the media, I wouldn't like me either," Palin said.
Sarah Palin may be a popular pick for Republicans in 2012, but at this moment, she is shielding herself from any kind of declaration on her presidential plans.
"I've never committed to running for president for one and I know that polls are fickle so we won't even talk about the approval rating or the favorability," she added.
In the poll, her favorable rating among Republicans was much better, with members of her own party approving of her by a 66 percent to 18 percent margin. (ANI)
