Is Palin Becoming More Mainstream?

Rasmussen seems to think so:

Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin’s than they are to President Obama’s

Just 40% say their views are closer to the president’s than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.

Among the Political Class, however, 68% say their views are more like Obama’s, while 63% of Mainstream voters describe their views as more like Palin’s.
Now I am not sure exactly what "Political Class" means.  But here is a snapshot of the political class:
A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 67% of Political Class voters believe the United States is generally heading in the right direction. However, things look a lot different to Mainstream Americans. Among these voters, 84% say the country has gotten off on the wrong track.
If 67% of them think the country is heading in the right direction they must not really be paying attention.

Well, since Obama is a far leftist ideologue the first poll makes sense. The political class might be referring to the ruling class or the GOP establishment?
