So, what happens when Tina Fey impersonates Sarah Palin?
A report from HCD Research and Muhlenberg College admits favorability rating for Palin decreases "slightly" after a person watches Fey impersonating Palin on "Saturday Night Live." The poll, conducted yesterday by a research company and a college-based public-opinion institute, asked people how they felt about Palin after watching an SNL sketch spoofing the VP candidate.
Palin's favorability rating among Republicans dropped 1 percent. Palin's already low favorability rating among rival Democrats fell 7 percent. Among swing voters, Palin's fell 4 percent.
Among all voters, Palin's favorability rating slipped 4 points, down to 43 percent.
