Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Has Until Late December to Jump In, and Still Win

As I watch the Republican presidential debates, I must admit that we have a great field of candidates running, and if the reports about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie getting into the race are true, then things will only get more interesting. It is a great field of candidates because America is finally getting a chance to see how truly diverse the Republican party is. After all, take a look at the Democrat party. All you will find is a who's who of the anti-American, communist-reject society.
Although I must admit that there is one person missing from the debate stage, and her absence has left many wondering why. I do know that she is of the belief that times have changed, and that Obama and the Democrats are so toxic that she could enter the race as late as November, or even late December, and still be the one to beat. Recent polls taken of just the conservative base in the Republican party prove her right. She is still the one to beat, and that has the rest of the field a little uneasy, and you can bet that Sarah is on their minds.
When Rick Perry jumped in many were claiming it's all over, but since then he has slipped. Since she won the Iowa straw poll, Michele Bachmann has slipped a bit. Rick Perry even attempted to lock up the Christian right vote before he jumped in, but Sarah Palin is still the choice of over 80% of the Christian conservatives. And guess who will show up en masse if she enters the race? You got it, the conservative Christian base. That is why the country-club Republicans keep touting Romney, or begging

Not sure what it means outside of internet name searching, but the author ties it into Sarah's chances of winning.
At one point it went like this:
"Sarah Palin? She waited too long! It's summertime already! She missed the window, and now it's too late to enter the race."
"What's that? Rick Perry? Rick Perry is entering the race? That is exciting news! This will really shake things up!!"
Then it became:
"Sarah Palin? She waited too long! It's Sept already! She missed the window, and now it's too late to enter the race."
"What's that? Chris Christie? Chris Christie is re-thinking the race? He might get in?? Wow! That will really shake things up!!"
Sarah is held to a unique standard, because the Establishment fears her.
I think she is one smart cookie to be sitting by as the current candidates destroy each other.
One thing I like about the four candidates who are my favorites, and Sarah herself although she has not declared, is that they all see Obama as the target, and not one another. Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, and Santorum all have their eyes on stopping Obama, while Huntsman, Perry, and Romney see their fellow Repubs as the main threat.
Between Sarah and the four I named, Bachmann Cain Gingrich and Santorum, I would be proud to have any one of them as my president. As for the others, not so much. But compared to the O, even the weakest and weirdest of them are giants. I'll vote for them if I have to, in fact I'd support any name picked at random from the phone book ahead of the fruitcake presently occupying the White House
This idiot must not have heard about filing deadlines. They start expiring at the end of October.
How comforting is it to have Google trending for anyone on our side? There is Herman Cain about to rise in the polling
who is the only candidate on the planet that can unite the conservative base, burdened as they are with those who will never vote for Palin and those who will never vote for Perry. If Cain should budge those poll numbers enough to threaten Obama like he did in the Florida straw poll he will soon be deserving of some loyalty for his herculean effort at campaigning. Palin’s minions among Cain supporters may not be so willing to dump him over and leave
him. There are ways he trumps her on grasp and experience with economics and jobs, which suits the times and the mood of the electorate, and he’s apparently a baggage free candidate which is a huge plus.
I respectfully disagree with the premise. If she seriously wants to run (and I’m not sure that she does), I think she needs to jump in within the next few weeks or so, or her window for being considered a serious candidate will be gone.
Yes, but I tend to agree that she needs to jump in at least a couple weeks before the first primary. Don’t you?
I have a friend who thinks she can wait till after the New Hampshire primary even, and still be the top dog to beat.
Yes, 2012 is not the time to sit out for ones principles.
The author fails to mention deadlines for being on the ballot in Florida,Utah and I believe SC.
Unless there is something I am missing, she needs to have her name on the ballot in Utah and Florida in October
If Palin was running she had to jump in a few weeks ago. She has missed too many debates because she is afraid of coming off bad in them. Her time has passed but she can run in 2016 or 2020 I suppose
I think she’s waiting to be drafted at the Convention.
Love the graphic and column. Thank you.
Oct. 31, Florida
Nov. 1, South Carolina
Nov. 18, New Hampshire
I'd prefer either Palin or Cain but I have reached that point too.
She’d better be careful about waiting until the last minute.
All it takes is one minor clerical error to screw things up.
She loses nothing by waiting. If she jumps in, the landscape will reshape itself anyway and meanwhile, in all likelihood several candidates will have run out of money and dropped out.
Doesn’t Colorado have some crazy requirement for registration too?
re: filing deadlines 10/31 and beyond...
Exactly. Anyone saying she can get in beyond 10/31 I’d be suspicious of wanting her demise. The bottom line, though, is Sarah and her team are so far playing their cards correctly, IMHO, and plan her entry sometime prior to 10/31.
Sarah Palin is the most authentic outsider Republican candidate with the best name recognition and best chance of beating Obama.
There are some other apparent outsiders like Bachmann and Cain who don’t have that strength.
And then there’s the fake outsider who’s linked to the Washington political machine, Rick Santorum.
