GOP Voters to Palin: Don’t Run

Could Sarah Palin be suffering from overexposure? An overwhelming majority—72 percent—of likely Republican primary voters don’t want the former Alaska governor to run for president, according to a McClatchy-Marist poll released Wednesday. Only 24 percent said they hoped she’d run, and only 13 percent said they would vote for the former vice-presidential candidate. The findings are similar to a recent poll by Pew, which found that 41 percent of Republicans wouldn’t consider voting for Palin. Palin told Fox News Wednesday that she still is considering running for president, and said she remains confident that one of current crop of Republican candidates can defeat President Obama.
