Palin endorsement poll: How many will win?

Sarah Palin has brought national attention to dozens of candidates around the country. But her track record is mixed, with nine of her picks she had endorsed losing their primary races (see our tracker).

Here's the poll question I would like to see in the WAPO:

If the 2012 presidential election were held today and there was a respectable, well know moderate candidate running as an independent, who would you be likely to vote for:

1. The Democrat
2. The Republican
3. The Independent

For those who select the Independent, provide a blank where they can fill in the name of their dream candidate. Mine is Olympia Snowe.

I believe that all of the Republicans who keep talking about the thumping the Democrats will receive in 2012 will be surprised to find out that their party and the Democratic Party are held in equally low regard by most people.

Do people fill up their columns with junk like this when they don't have anything else to write? People don't care about this crap. There is other worthwhile things going on in the World without filling the news and the airwaves with this junk.

I assume when you say "junk" you mean palin, if that is correct, you are dead on.

Obama is 0 for 3. Palin will be at least 50/50. Stem the Red Tide on Nov 2.

By my count, this is the 689th anti-Sarah Palin article that the WaPo has run. They, and the Big 'O' must really be afraid of her, or they wouldn't waste so much space knocking her.

Sarah Palin's worthless "endorsement(?)" is more of a detriment to any candidate than a benefit! Sarah "KNOWS" nothing about government or politics and simply a LOT about seducing attention! Her self-serving ignorance is dangerous.
