7 In 10 Republicans Still Want Palin To Run In 2012

Yesterday, Sarah Palin said, “Politically speaking, if I die, I die. So be it.” But that doesn’t look like what’s going to happen. According to the latest USA Today/Gallup poll, two-thirds of Republicans want Palin to remain a “major national political figure,” and I don’t think they mean as the butt of late-night comedy jokes. And 7 in 10 Republicans say they would absolutely pull the lever for her for prez in 2012, and that the past week hasn’t changed their perception of her one iota. Um, people, don’t you remember when she QUIT HER JOB? How exactly does that make her fit for the Oval Office? This next stat won’t come as a shocker to anyone—75% of Democrats want to see her career be dunzo, already. So, Frisky GOPers, tell us what you think! [USA Today]
