More tea partiers don't want Palin to run

A new CBS poll finds that only 34% of Republicans want Sarah Palin to run for president, while 54% don't.

More surprisingly, 50% of tea party supporters don't want Palin to jump in the race, and only 38% do.

There's another troubling sign for Palin -- her favorable rating with Republicans are just 37%/36%. That's weirdly close. Usually, her favorable ratings are right near the top.

The second and third best known candidates -- Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani -- sport +26% and +15% fav ratings, respectively.
