There is a media template when it comes to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. That template, fed to them by the far left is that Sarah Palin is simply too extreme and completely unelectable. I have said of Ms. Palin in the past that I doubt even if she were elected to the Presidency that she would have the balls to do what needs to be done which is to strip back every unconstitutional program from being funded by the Treasury, a Department the President controls. No, she would never take down Medicare, Food Stamps, Social Security, Medicaid, Federal Unemployment Benefits, etc.
Would she be better than anything the liberal, elitist left could offer? By a million miles. Would she be a true constitutionalist conservative who upholds and defends without apology our Federal Constitution? Nope.
But to say that Palin is unelectable is still the means to which the liberals try to defuse the fact that she has ten times the brains of someone like President Obama and actually lives in reality unlike liberals. However a new Rasmussen poll shows that the myth of Palin’s ineluctability is a dangerous one that is more liberal delusion than fact.
Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin’s than they are to President Obama’s, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Just 40% say their views are closer to the president’s than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.
Ouch. So if Obama was electable with just 40% of American voters saying he shares their values, to say that Palin who is at 52% (that is 12% more for liberals out there who graduated from our public school system) is “extreme”, “out of the mainstream”, and “unelectable”, simply doesn’t pass the smell test.
She isn’t the answer to our problems. But she might be a successful stop gap to stop the bleeding or at least slow it to a manageable level.
