Will Sarah Palin Run? Take the White House 2012 Poll

Bookmark and Share As the evolving Republican presidential field slowly begins to take shape, one of the most watched for decisions is that of Sarah Palins. The possibility of her entry in to the G.O.P. nomination contests has many wondering how she would or could impact on their own possible candidacies. One of the most critical aspects of Palins entry in the race is the attraction that the TEA Party movement has with her.

The TEA Party was a major decisive factor in the 2010 midterm elections and anyone hoping to win an election in 2012 is looking at doing so with the help that winning the TEA Party over to their side. But if Palin becomes a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, many of those voters may stay in her camp. If she doesnt run, whom those voters will flock to, or how many candidates will share support from the movement, is up the air.

Even if Palin doesnt run, she will be a factor in 2012. If she decided to back another candidate, that could be an incredible boost to them in the primaries and caucuses. But another school of thought is that Sarah Palin runs but not as a Republican. As explained in a recent White House 2012 post, the thinking is that Palin may wait until a likely Republican nominee begins to emerge and if it is not one that Palin can enthusiastically get behind, she may become a late entry in to the 2012 presidential election as a TEA Party backed independent candidate.

No matter what Palin does, it will impact on the 2012 election. So this week, White House 2012 asks you what you think Sarah Palin in 2012. Do you think she will run? Do you think she will sit out the race? Or do you think Sarah Palin runs, but as a third Party candidate?

Let us know. Take this weeks White House 2012 Poll.

  1. I think if she runs, she’ll encourage others to jump into the race (who oppose her)!
