Palin at 22% Favorable? Give Me A Break-Proper Polls Average Is 46/49

Pollster.com list the four most recent polls regarding Sarah Palin's Favorable/Unfavorable ratings. The two from the Lame Stream Media networks are idiotic-unless you are biased leftwards or work for other LSM- as they reinforce your prejudices. However just a moments glance will show how ridiculous they are.

How can Palin be "the most polarizing politician" and at the same time have a 29% undecided  response (CBS) or a 19% "Neutral" plus 3% undecided response (NBC)?  Further, the network polls are amongst "all voters". If we look at the proper polling organizations, GWU and Rasmussen, who review a likely voter model, the "undecided" vote is reduced and the average of the two polls is 46 Unfavorable/49 Favorable. Interestingly Rasmussen has improved from previous 46/49 to current 48/49.
