The former governor has shut down reports that Republicans are on a common mission to stop her from running, telling Fox News the story is "crap."
Whatever her intentions, Palin's interest in the presidency is not being reciprocated by most Americans: Two-thirds of registered voters in a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll say she's unqualified for the job, and more than half continue to rate her unfavorably overall.
While there are political and ideological divides on Palin, she faces hurdles across the board. Even in her own party, Republicans split, 47 percent to 46 percent, on whether she's qualified or unqualified to serve as president. Conservatives disagree, 45-48 percent, as do Tea Party supporters, 48-48 percent.
