Rasmussen: In Hypoethetical Match-Up for President, Palin Edges Biden 47-44

Not unambiguously good news -- Palin is obviously a more likable figure. Biden only stays close due to Palin's relative inexperience.

Just over half of voters view both of the vice presidential candidates at least somewhat favorably, although 35% rate their opinion of Palin as Very Favorable while only 23% feel that way about Biden. Twenty-eight percent (28%) have a very unfavorable opinion of the woman governor of Alaska versus 20% who say that about the longtime Delaware senator.

Women continue to be more skeptical than men of the Republican vice presidential nominee, only the second woman to be on a national political ticket. While men split 50% to 37% in Palinís favor, women support Biden 50% to 44%.

When Palin is pitted against Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee wins 50% to 43%.

In the same survey, Palinís running mate, John McCain, beats Biden 49% to 45%.

Obama beats Palin? Yeah, I guess we couldn't expect her to beat him. Yet.

Thanks to WilliamA.
