I'm not sure how long this will last or what to really make of these numbers, but the next two months will be fascinating. Unknown by two-thirds of voters just seven days ago, Sarah Palin is now an American favorite:

Palin's favorable ratings are now a point higher than either man at the top of the Presidential tickets this year. As of Friday morning, Obama and McCain are each viewed favorably by 57% of voters. Biden is viewed favorably by 48%.

As one would expect, there is a sharp partisan divide; however, McCain supporters have to like her favorable rating among independents:

Eighty-nine percent (89%) of Republicans give her favorable reviews along with 33% of Democrats and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
