Little Love For Palin 2012 In South Carolina
Exit polls from Tuesday’s elections in South Carolina should little desire among Palmetto State Republicans to see Sarah Palin at the top of the ticket:
South Carolina Republicans like Sarah Palin, but not enough to make her a clear favorite among potential 2012 GOP presidential contenders.
An analysis of South Carolina exit poll data by The Associated Press finds more than 80 percent of those identifying themselves as Republicans on Election Day say they have a favorable opinion of the former Alaska governor. But only 25 percent say they would like to see her win the nomination.
No Republican has won the GOP nomination since 1980 without winning the state’s primary.
A sign of sanity among Republican voters? One can only hope.
