Hannity And Bila “Explain” How The Left Is “Terrified” Of Sarah Palin

Reported by Ellen - June 13, 2011 -

Sarah Palin may one of the least respected politicians in America but Sean Hannity and conservative guest Jedediah Bila comically insisted on Hannity Friday night (6/10/11) that liberals are “terrified” of her and that Palin would “absolutely” beat President Obama in 2012 – even though the polls show a drastically different picture.

During a discussion that also included Democrat Krystal Ball, Hannity said, "If she (Palin) runs, she will beat Barack Obama.”

“Absolutely,” Bila agreed. “Once she gets out there and speaks directly to the people, then that caricature of her will be erased… (Americans now) know her through the lens of the (liberal) media.”

In an article which noted that Mitt Romney polls slightly ahead of President Obama among registered voters, ABC News’ Gary Langer wrote:

Romney, though, is the only Republican to run that well; Obama leads all other potential opponents tested in this poll -- Palin, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann and Jon Huntsman. Palin fares worst, trailing Obama by 17 points among all adults, 15 points among registered voters.

Indeed, despite advancing in GOP primary preference, Palin faces daunting challenges. Sixty-four percent of Americans say they definitely will not vote for her for president, a new high. Sixty-three percent describe her as unqualified for the job, below its peak but still a substantial majority. Even in her own party, among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, 41 percent rule out voting for her and 39 percent see her as unqualified.

But hey, I’m happy to let Hannity and Bila believe otherwise and blame all her problems on the "lamestream media."
