Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's political action committee has lost much of its fundraising prowess, bringing in less than half of what it did at the same time during the past two years.

According to the Center for Public Integrity, SarahPAC brought in $460,000 in the first six months of the 2013. This compares to the $1.2 million it raised by the end of June 2012 and the near $1.7 million it raised by June 2011.

Federal Election Commission filings show that most of the money the PAC did raise is not being spent on helping fellow Republicans get into office.

SarahPAC spent about $500,000 during the first half of 2013, the vast majority of which went on consultants, travel, speechwriting and other logistical fees.

The figures could be a reflection of just how much popularity the former GOP vice presidential candidate has lost. A poll released Tuesday showed that if Palin chose to run for U.S. Senate against Democrat incumbent Sen. Mark Begich, she would lose 52 percent to 40 percent .

The survey also showed that 58 percent view her unfavorably compared to 39 percent who view her favorably.
