There is some evidence that while waiting for a potential Sarah Palin presidential run, her potential voters have moved on and now support other tea party-backed candidates, such as Rick Perry or Michele Bachmann.
Has Sarah Palin waited too long to announce shes running for president?
(...) So if she does throw her snow machine helmet into the ring, she might start a White House race closer to the back of the pack than the front.
First, lets address the waiting part. The former Alaska governor on Tuesday denied that she intends to announce a White House bid on September 3, (...)
Palin might use the September 3 address to endorse another candidate. She might use it to make it clear she will announce at some point Governor Perry used that same sort of slow-unveiling strategy as he edged into the race.
But the problem is at this point she may be exhausting the patience of potential Palinites.
I think Palin could get back a number of voters should she get into the race people who gave up on her running and moved on to someone else. But, I do not think it would put her in a strong enough position to get into first or second place, writes Erickson.
Some other analysts are less negative. In an opinion piece for CNN, political scientist Paul Sracic of Youngstown State University in Ohio writes that Palins on-camera optimism about America seems natural and akin to that of GOP icon Ronald Reagan.
This offers at least the possibility that, despite her current low standing in the polls, she will be able to leap-frog over the more negative sounding Bachmann and Perry, and compete head-to-head with Romney, writes Sracic.

No...but nice try.
No, Sarah hasn’t exhausted the patience of her supporters, just you clymers in the media who can’t get her to do what you want.
She has been very straight-forward in telling us she would make her decision in September. We’ll wait.
I don’t think she will run.
But if her strategy was to wait, enter the race late and “save the day”...
I think her strategy backfired, big time. Especially with Perry entering the race.
Sarah who? Oh, the reality TV star that went fishing with Kate plus 8! She’s just intent on milking her celebrity for all its worth and translating that into dollars. She is the very opposite of a serious candidate.
I have felt this way for some time. She either needs to get in or get out and stop confusing the voters. Once voters are lost, they are tough to get back. Especially if they have used their wallets in support of another candidate. People are not very patient during these times.
In my case, yes, she has ... But I understand why, it’s so the press isn’t pounder her everyday, and we know that technique works because she has been badly damaged already, it’s not right, but the constant attacks work.
Only her faux supporters.
The armies of Soros operatives and DU losers pretending to offer her advice.
Radical children are so cute!
“The former Alaska governor on Tuesday denied that she intends to announce a White House bid on September 3”
Maybe October then?
Palin has a hard-core, loyal base. They will wait until hell freezes over, IMO.
I like and support Palin, but will not wait much longer. She’s indicated that the end of Sept/Oct is fair to her supporters. I’m willing to give her that time.
Meanwhile, I’ll be working to refute some of the misinformation and lies that have been posted to FR about Perry. He and Bachmann have declared and deserve to have balanced information presented about them.
Nice try what? I support Sarah too.
She’s certainly exhausted the patience of the ABP crowd, but that’s on purpose. We Palin supporters are just reloading.
No, but it’s what the Perrywinkles want everybody to believe.
Just CSM trying a little psyops there.
