Poll: No To Trump, Palin

Nearly 60 percent of Americans would never support a Republican presidential bid by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin or real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump, according to a new poll Wednesday.

Many contenders are not well known and many who are known are not liked,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute/Reuters. More here.
