"Recently, there have been some pollsters or pitchmen trading on the Sarah Palin name - taking a pulse on the Governor's favorability," said a statement posted Wednesday on the SarahPAC web site.
"None of these polls are authorized by SarahPAC or the governor," the statement said. "Again, SarahPAC is not doing any telephone solicitation at this time."
Several political blogs in Iowa and Alaska reported the polling calls earlier this week.
