A new CBS poll finds that Americans overwhelmingly don’t want Sarah Palin to run for president — and furthermore, even conservatives don’t want her in the race.

Respondents were asked: “Would you like Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012?”

The top-line numbers: Only 24% would like Palin to run, compared to 66% who don’t want her to run. Broken down by party identification, among Republicans it’s 44%-48%, with Democrats 9%-83%, and among independents 26%-62%.

And among self-identified conservatives, only 41% said yes, to 50% who said no. Palin’s only bright spot was white evangelicals, who favored a run by a narrow margin of 48%-42%.
