    It appears the "Palin Factor" is legit.

    Nearly two-thirds of Palin's endorsements have gone on to succeed in 26 contested primary elections so far - and these victories are far-ranging throughout the country.

    Contrast that to Obama's far more dismal endorsement record and fellow Democrats running away from an Obama endorsement...

    Democrats up for reelection are not only running against a GOP opponent. They are running from President Obama.
    The President's latest two fundraising trips put the spotlight on what will happen more and more this election season: some Democrats simply do not want to be seen with a President whose job approval rating has sunk 30 points, to 43%, since he took office. He is suffering from low ratings even in states he carried in the 2008 election.

    When Obama landed in Atlanta earlier this month, former Gov. Roy Barnes, who wants his old job back, was nowhere near the airport. Barnes was campaigning in Southern Georgia, 100 miles away. His campaign manager said he did not have time to travel to Atlanta and be seen with the President. By the way, Obama's job approval Georgia is 41%.

    I guess this is why liberals hate Palin so much. I can understand being against her personally for some reason but how can anyone be against lower taxes and freedom to make your own decisions.... I just don't get it.

    Wat. Nearly two thirds?

    61% is not nearly two thirds.

    61% is way better than spending $850B to keep unemployment under 8% and then be told by the Administration that "the jobs are never coming back"

    If 26 is 61%, then it implies that there were 42 candidates in all. To reach 66%, 28 candidates would have to win.

    I believe a difference of two candidates could be classified as "nearly."

    On another note, I don't believe Palin had much to do with these candidates winning. She believes one set of things, and she picks candidates accordingly. Luckily (for her) the attributes which she looks for are also qualities looked for by Republican, Independent and--in some primaries--Democrat voters.

    Well there is the obvious, doesn't hurt that several of the candidates she endorsed were establishment candidates anyway.

    Caribou Barbie has endorsed Sharron Angle, who will lose when it counts. In fact, more than half of her endorsements have been in primaries, and those candidates now trail in the polling for the "real" vote. How is this a sign of legitimacy?

    I heard she's actually 10 and 10.

    And that Romney, the next GOP nominee btw, barring unforeseen cataclysms,

    has a better endorsement record than she does.
