Sara Palin



November 02, 2010 – Comments (4)

I know my blogs are supposed to be just about finance and economics but politics does matter and effects both of them.  I've been asked if Sara Palin is really a factor in this election.  My view:

Sara Palin is definitely the Head Cheerleader and will probably win Most Popular but in the end the voters are smart and she will not win Most Likely to Succeed and in not even in the running for Valedictorian.

How do you see her influence?

She reminds me of a young Dan Quayle.  That's about the level of relevance I see her playing.

Palin brought national attention to several candidates that likely would not have been noticed without her.  It appears that her endorsements have changed the results for a few primaries.

I do not think Palin is having a major effect on the election tomorrow, but I don't have access to enough detailed polling data to make a definitive statement.

I do not know why you think the voters are smart - look at the the folks they've elected and keep re-electing to Congress and state legislatures - many of whom are widely known to be both corrupt and duplicitous. 

For that reason, I am really scared that Sarah Palin could end up as our forty fifth President.  By 2012 Iran and Israel will both be nuclear powers, the only remaining ingredient for a nuclear war in the Middle East will be a US President that has apocalyptic beliefs.
