Palin should have jumped in before Perry, could have been her getting the Perry buzz...now if she jumps in she would just help nominate Romney and take votes from Perry and Bachman

Meh, it's a long campaign, eventually movement conservatives and Tea Party folks would settle for either Palin, Perry or Bachmann as an alternative to Romney.

Palin does poll extremely badly now, even among Republicans. I don't think she is running and haven't for months, but for whatever reason the things she is doing now seem to be making her even less desirable as a candidate to most Republicans as time passes.

Wow...a rational, calmly stated post on a Palin thread.

Absolutely correct on all counts. It IS early despite the fact that it seems the campaign has already been going on for months. And yes, Tea Partiers will support whoever seems to be the alternative to Myth.

Also agree that she isn’t running. I too haven’t thought she would for some time and would only add that if her plan was to get in now, she probably made a tactical blunder by doing so. She let Perry become a first tier candidate so from that perspective she waited too long.

I’d also add that there are a couple of filing deadlines bearing down...Colorado coming up this month I think and another next month - I’m not sure which one.

But Sarah can read polls. She simply can’t win. That doesn’t mean I think she’s not a good conservative...she clearly is. For many reasons, most of which aren’t really her fault, she just isn’t electable.
