Bad news: Levi Johnston’s favorable rating in Alaska now at … -66

posted at 1:48 pm on September 3, 2010 by Allahpundit

Alternate headline: “Blogger pretty sure Palin doesn’t have to worry about Levi hurting her reputation anymore.”

One of the Conservatives4Palin people keeps e-mailing to remind me that PPP completely blew the Alaska Senate primary in its early polling and that Alaska is notoriously difficult to poll under any circumstance, which is why we shouldn’t believe their numbers showing 62 percent of Alaskans don’t want Palin to run for president or, per today’s data, that her favorable rating is only 37/55. Fair enough — that last figure does look ridiculous in light of Miller’s upset — but Levi’s rock bottom favorable rating seems oddly plausible, doesn’t it? According to PPP, these are the worst numbers they’ve ever recorded anywhere for anyone, John Edwards included. Could a gossipy, backbiting, “I’m sorry for being sorry” answer delivered while fame-whoring on CBS really drive someone down to -66 favorability? I’m thinking … yeah, probably.

Edwards’ 15/72 favorability on our January North Carolina poll had set the initial record for futility but Johnston matches the 72% unfavorable number while only 6% of Alaskans see him in a positive light. Those poll numbers probably don’t bode too well for his Wasilla Mayoral candidacy.

Johnston is reviled pretty universally across the board but he’s a little more popular with Democrats (15/61) than he is with Republicans (4/76) or independents (4/74).

It’s hard to muster a favorability rating lower than 6%- that’s about where the average person off the street we polled on a lark would be- so Johnson may hold this dubious distinction for a long time. Who besides like Hitler or Osama Bid Laden do you think we could poll who would be less popular in some particular state?

Any reason to post this aside from the slow-news-day giggle factor and the fact that it means his campaign for mayor of Wasilla is likely to end happily for Palin fans? Actually, yes: This is the second reminder in two days that some of her enemies are so ugly in their willingness to take her down that they can’t help but discredit themselves in the process. Vanity Fair will recover because, let’s face it, its readers don’t care if they smear her, but I fear Ricky Hollywood’s path to success has now gotten very rocky. You feel for him, don’t you?

Levi Johnston gives @$$holes everywhere a bad name.

Forget Wasilla, Johnston can’t even be mayor of Bristol.

To redeem himself, he should take golf lessons with Tiger Woods, while wearing a burqa.

But dagnabbit, this one was at the top of the Blog section (not the headline) with a photo! The only way to avoid it was to avoid HotAir. I’m sure you’re not advocating that.

Interesting point, -you know you can use Adblock Plus to block images of any kind, not just in ads? Right click, ‘Adblock Image’. I use it to block those things that hurt my eyes, like Rosie, Whoopie, etc. It’s available for Firefox, not sure about other browsers.

Coincidentally, Johnston’s popularity evaporated along with Obama’s.

maverick muse on September 3, 2010 at 3:16 PM

Quick Levi, you can turn this around if only you promise to pass a healthcare plan for Wasilla by any means necessary!

Anchorage police first began investigating Allen on child sex abuse charges in early 2004 but initially were waved off by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Anchorage because of a separate sex trafficking and cocaine investigation involving millionaire hardware store owner Josef Boehm of Anchorage. One of the reported victims of Allen was a defendant and key witness in the Boehm case.

In 2006, Allen became a government witness in the federal corruption cases.

In 2007, Allen pleaded guilty to bribing Alaska state lawmakers and in January began serving a three-year sentence in federal prison. With time off for good behavior, he’s expected to be released in August 2012.

He also was the government’s star witness in the 2008 federal corruption trial of the late U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens. Stevens’ conviction was later thrown out because of prosecutorial misconduct.

Prosecutorial misconduct, including using a star witness who’d sell his mother under federal pressure.

All this before the 15-year old prostitute now aged 26 pressed charges against Allen? And as far as witnesses go, is she still a prostitute?

Is it mere coincidence that the news hit the press now that the late Stevens’ conviction has been dismissed?

I eschew him as the spreading STD carrier he is.

I know what parents think of him, glad that their kids aren’t in his circle of friends. Those that are have been forewarned.

Nope! I don’t often feel empathy for losahs!!!

When are we going to finally hear that the known parasite did this as a joke, that someone dared him, like Andrew Sullvan?
I can’t imagine there was anyone out there — even those who don’t like Sarah Palin — who ever took this stunt seriously

What happened to “Noted Celebrity Parasite” tag line?

Note to HA: You can drop all the Levi stories in the same trash bin with the Meghan McCain stories. OK?

Another Levi thread, another opportunity to remind people that they have a foolproof way to avoid the Levi threads: Simply don’t read them.

But he’s so deliciously low, so horribly dirty…

Ergo the fascination, I suppose.

Just for comparison’s sake, at what numerical score do you risk getting your ass kicked by random people just for walking down the street?
