We've written a fair amount about the fact that Sarah Palin's influence in Republican primaries does not necessarily means she's a viable Presidential candidate. Here's a classic example of that in New Hampshire 2012 primary results we'll release tomorrow:
The leading Presidential contender among Republicans in New Hampshire who say they're more likely to vote for a Palin endorsed candidate is...Mitt Romney with 33%. Only 28% of the GOP voters positively influenced by a Palin endorsement say they would vote Palin for President.
There's a big disconnect for Republican voters between liking Palin/paying attention to what she has to say and actually putting her in the White House.
And keep in mind also that only 31% of primary voters in New Hampshire said they were more inclined to support a Palin endorsed candidate in the first place.
