Thirty eight percent Americans would not vote for candidate Palin supports: Poll

By Abdul Nisar

Washington, August 4 (ANI): Thirty eight percent of the Americans have expressed that they would be less likely to vote for a candidate that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin campaigns for, while only 18 percent said her support would make them more likely to vote for that candidate, according to a Pew Research Center/National Journal poll.

According to The Washington Post, within those numbers are two others sets of figures suggesting that a lot of Republicans will ask Palin to stay home.

Among independents, 36 percent said that Palin would make them less likely to support a candidate, while only 15 percent said her support would help that candidate.

The poll also revealed that Palin turns off more Democrats than she turns on Republicans. 41 percent of Republicans said they'd be more likely to vote for a Palin-backed candidate, but 58 percent of Democrats say they'd be less likely to support one of her favorites.

These numbers suggest that the influence of Palin, peaked during this year's Republican primaries, has dipped down to become a negative aspect for the GOP (Grand Old Party) or the Republican party. (ANI)
