Honeymoon Is Over For Caroline Kennedy

by on January 6, 2009

According to the latest poll from Public Policy Polling, Caroline Kennedy is losing popularity fast… According to their polling, while she still is viewed favorably by a majority of Democrats, “the number who see her unfavorably has nearly tripled over the last four weeks.”

Caroline is also no longer the favored choice of Democrats. A month ago, “almost twice as many Democrats said they wanted to see Kennedy appointed to the Senate as said they preferred Cuomo. Now he has a 20 point advantage within the party.”

I still can’t understand why some Democrats are so disillusioned over Kennedy. Joe Trippi, who managed Howard Dean’s failed presidential campaign, expressed his support for Caroline on Twitter, calling her “the best shot at a real reformer.” Excuse me? Based on what exactly? Trippi added, “she isn’t part of the corrupted political system — she shunned it.” If Caroline Kennedy “shunned” the “corrupted political system” then why is she now embracing it in such a sleazy way?
