Shock poll: Hillary Clinton would beat Sarah Palin 44%-43% in Alaska -- By Paul Bedard, The Washington Examiner

Photo - Huh? Sarah Palin would lose to Hillary Clinton in Alaska, where she was governor, according to a new poll. AP PhotoFormer Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she's considering a presidential bid in 2016.

In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent.

Worse, she doesn't even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, 6 percent; Sen. Marco Rubio, 6 percent; and a tie at 4 percent for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Rep. Paul Ryan.

In the new PPP poll, it is clear that the state remains in the Tea Party camp with Cruz, Paul and Huckabee staying popular. But to come in second in a GOP matchup is a blow to Palin, the darling of that movement and a politician who has done much to propel other Tea Party candidates to victory.

To add insult to injury, PPP found that among GOP voters in her home state, just 28 think she should run for president. Some 62 percent want the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee to sit out the race.
