Patrick Ishmael, at Hot Air's Green Room:
“With over 6000 ballots cast... Sarah Palin has returned to almost her highest vote take since the survey began, at 36.94% of the vote. Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry run closely together, coming in second (19.95%) and third (18.91%) respectively. Herman Cain takes fourth at 6.68%, continuing his downward movement since his May highs. Mitt Romney takes fifth, at 6.3%.”Editor's Note: So let's see if we've got this straight. Gov. Palin dominates this poll. She wins going away, by her highest vote total "since the survey began," beats the two candidates the anyone-but-Palin media is currently hyping (Bachmann by 17 points, Perry by 18 points)... and HA desperately tries to spin this as somehow bad news for Sarah? Why is Ed Morrissey the only contributor at Hot Air that seems to have no axe to grind when it comes to Gov. Palin?
