It's safe to say Caroline Kennedy's senatorial roll-out was a disaster now.

Data from Public Policy Polling found that 44 percent of New York voters have a "lesser opinion" of her than they did before she announced her desire to fill Hillary Clinton's vacated Senate seat.

“When Caroline Kennedy was first mentioned as a possible Senate appointee there was a lot of enthusiasm among New York Democrats about her,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Her reputation has taken a pretty clear hit over the last month, and if Governor Paterson does end up appointing her she’s going to have some work to do to overcome this bad first impression she’s made on New York voters.”

PPP's poll was conducted among 700 New York voters on January 3rd and 4th. More information on it is HERE.
