Several more prominent Republicans have questioned Sarah Palin’s qualifications for president because she quit in the middle of her term as Alaska governor.
Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO) told the Kansas City Star, “I have reservations about anyone who quits as governor halfway through the term.”
Former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R) told CNN that, “I mean, she was a governor. But the fact that she left office before even completing her first term is — that’s just not an attitude that I think is necessarily in the best interest of your constituents — rather what’s in your best interests.”
Interestingly, a new Bloomberg poll shows Palin’s favorability rating at just 33% while 57% have an unfavorable view.
