Not as Bad as Edwards

Matthew Continetti, the author of The Persecution of Sarah Palin and a big defender of the former Alaska governor, makes this point in the Wall Street Journal:

"An October Gallup poll put Ms. Palin's favorable number at 40%, her lowest rating to date. In a November Gallup survey, 63% of all voters said they wouldn't seriously consider supporting her for the presidency. Yet Ms. Palin isn't as unpopular as John Edwards..."

Update: A Political Wire reader notes that October's Wall Street Journal/NBC poll had Palin's overall favorable rating at 27%, even lower numbers than in that Gallup poll.
