Republicans Lukewarm to Possible Palin Run


Now that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has decided to stay out of the GOP presidential race, Republicans are focusing on announced candidates rather than casting their eyes toward former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has yet to say whether she’ll run, Politico reports.

In a Washington Post/ABC News survey released this week, just 31 percent of Republican primary voters said they want Palin to join the presidential sweepstakes, while 66 percent would prefer that she stay away.

In August, a Pew Research Center poll indicated that 41 percent of Republicans see “no chance” they’d support Palin for president. She rarely scores support higher than the low teens in polls ranking the candidates. That usually puts her in third or fourth place.

Ed Rollins, former campaign manager for Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, believes Palin won’t win the nomination if she enters the race.

“At best, she could attract some Bachmann voters, some Cain voters, and maybe come out as the tea party candidate,” Politico quotes Rollins as saying. She would have little time to raise money and prepare for debates and the early primaries, Rollins notes.

But others say Palin has a chance. She could pull away people who now support Bachmann and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed told Politico.
