Coulter's book sales off

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Sales of Coulter's latest book appear to be far lower than her others."](CNN) - Is Ann Coulter losing her mojo when it comes to selling books?

The conservative commentator, whose previous tomes have flown of the bookshelves, isn't having quite as good luck with her latest hardback, "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America."

According to Portfolio Magazine, just over 100,000 copies of the book have sold during its two months on the market. While that number far surpasses most politically themed books, its sales to date rank far below those of other Coulter polemics.

Portfolio reports 2006's "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," sold 279,100 copies in hardcover, 2003's "Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terror," sold 396,600 hardcover copies, and 2002's "Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right," sold 333,100 copies and an additional 108,300 in paperback.

The comparatively low book sales come even as Coulter has mounted a high-profile publicity tour in recent weeks, including widely watched and heated appearances on "The Today Show" and "The View."

    Its about time people got smart and stopped buying her hate filled books.

    She is some piece of work.

    She is as unamerican as they come.....the only thing she honors is the almighty dollar.....and she has sold her very soul (and sold out America) for cold hard cash.

    Please do NOT be upset with Ann Coulter. Do not waste your energy on getting mad at her. Instead, thank God that you were not sexually molested when you were a child. Thank God that your parents did not hit you, slap you, yell at you when you were a kid. Cause if so, you would also have the same volcano of hatred in you as in Coulter, Limbaugh, O' Reilly and Shawn Hannity.

    Please make sure you protect your children from any sexual molestation so they do not grow hatred of the above.

    Zillions of Ann Coulter's books are gathering dust in used book shops all over America.

    All slightly used.

    Saad from NJ-
    That's actually really insulting to people that were abused and didn't turn into a monster like Coulter.

    There are many that overcome attempts to darkent the heart of the innocent.

    Coulter and Limbaugh are ACTORS creating characters, they have different real legal names just like any other hollywood entertainer.

    The funny thing is, they both probably voted for Obama.

    She's still selling a lot of books, but the big dip is clearly a reflection of the mood of the country – the number of people who want to read her angry, bitter, hateful polemics is dwindling.

    Pity, that. Maybe she'll turn into a black hole and implode now.

    Its about time people saw through her lies for what she really is. All she does is act the fear-monger and will say anything false to install that fear. TOOK FOREVER FOR PPL TO FINALLY SEE IT!

    The reason why America is in the dumps. She understands how culture and beliefs are entwined with politics and does a good job of knit picking what other doormats in the new White House women council are afraid to tread on. They rather attend special political occasion half naked to get attention. Ann is rare political genius. Shame there are few that is outspoken like she is even if it hurts at their left rib or whatever. She knows who she is and proud of the color of her skin.

    This woman is seriously demented. Her cruel comments about the 9/11 widows "enjoying their husbands' deaths" was beyond the pale.
    She and that helium-filled blowhard Rush Limbaugh should just shut the hell up.

    Regular People:

    Point well taken. You are right. That was insensitive of me.

    I just think something bad happened to them for them to have this much hate. That's why I don't get upset at them – rather feel truly sorry for them.

    Nice try CNN.

    You failed to mention that this book came out on the worst economic conditions in over 30 years.

    Small point that was missed, I am sure it was an oversight since you claim to have the best political team and Oh you are not bias at all.

    I can hardly believe anyone bought her other books, seems like a goodly portion were publisher buy backs to inflate sales!

    Why would someone pay to hear a right wing nut snivel, moan, and complain when you can hear them do it here for free?

    Dumas... Real Clear Politics avg has Obama at 60% job approval. Way to cherry pick your data though.
