Sarah Palin May Love Alaska More Than Alaska Loves Her
Sarah Palin waxes poetic about the state she abandoned governing, and the residents of the state may not like that she didn’t finish her job. Palin polls poorly in her home state when it comes to assessing the popularity of Republicans who might run for president.
In Alaska the big story is Sarah Palin’s strength- or more precisely lack thereof- only 15% of her home state Republicans say she’s their pick to be President, putting her behind Huckabee at 17% and Gingrich and Romney at 16%. When you see that lack of support for Palin in the state Joe Miller’s apparent loss in the state’s Senate election begins to look more and more understandable. It’s clear at this point that Palin is a lot more popular in the rest of the country than she is in her home state.
Senator Lisa Murkowski summed it up: “I don’t think she enjoys governing.” Murkowki told Katie Couric she would not support Palin because she lacks the “leadership quality” and “intellectual curiosity” needed for the job.Click here for reuse options!
