A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that Republicans are abandoning Sarah Palin.

For the first time in Post-ABC News polling, fewer than six in 10 Republicans and GOP-leaning independents see Palin in a favorable light, down from a stratospheric 88 percent in the days after the 2008 Republican National Convention and 70 percent as recently as October.

She is still at a 58% rating, third behind Mike Huckabee’s 61%, and Mitt Romney at 60%  among presidential contenders, but her unfavorables are rising.

But Palin’s unfavorable numbers are significantly higher than they are for any of these possible competitors. Fully 37 percent of all Republicans and GOP-leaning independents now hold a negative view of her, a new high.

In another first, fewer than 50 percent of Republican-leaning independents — 47 percent — hold favorable views of Palin.
