Sarah Palin – Race Shifter

September 21st, 2011 6 comments

I wonder if Mike Tyson and Joe McGinniss  have a clue as to what they may have accomplished in their attacks against former Alaskan Governor, Sarah Palin.   I believe that they haven’t just inadvertently helped to garner Mrs. Palin sympathy support,  but that they have  helped to open more people’s eyes as to who Palin really is, what she can accomplish and what she has had to endure for simply  being a successful conservative woman in politics.  Anyway, I like this picture; It speaks volumes.  Sarah may actually  be the one we have been waiting for!

WASHINGTON —         Look out President Barack  Obama. Even Sarah Palin’s gaining on you.

     A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds that Obama looks increasingly  vulnerable in next year’s election, with a majority of voters believing he’ll  lose to any Republican, a solid plurality saying they’ll definitely vote against  him and most potential Republican challengers gaining on him.

     Even in potential matchups where he leads, Obama in most cases has lost  ground to the Republican.

           The biggest gain came for Palin, the former Alaska governor who  hasn’t yet announced whether she’ll jump into the fast-changing race for the  2012 Republican presidential nomination.

     After trailing Obama by more than 20 percentage points in polls all  year, the new national survey, taken Sept. 13-14, found Palin trailing the  president by just 5 points, 49-44 percent. The key reason: She now leads Obama  among independents, a sharp turnaround.

     Overall, the gains among Republicans “speak to Obama’s decline among  independents generally, and how the middle is not his right now,” said Lee  Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, which  conducted the national survey.
