Palin Power: Her Endorsements Carry Significant Weight
As the sun rose this day, June 9, 2010, over 80% of Gov. Palin’s endorsed candidates thus far emerged victorious. Though Gov.

Palin’s endorsements are valuable and carry significant weight. The anger of those whose candidates did not secure an endorsement is also strong anecdotal evidence to support this assertion. After all, people do not get angry over something that is of little value or not worth caring about.

Politico’s Andy Barr cited the success of Nikki Haley’s campaign, despite allegations of two affairs as evidence of the power of Gov. Palin’s endorsements. Haley’s spokesman Tim Pearson called Gov. Palin’s endorsement a boon to the Haley campaign. Nikki Haley expressed her gratitude on Fox and Friends and said she would love to have Gov. Palin campaign for her in the general election.

Ian Lazaran, Conservatives4Palin today discussed a Time Magazine article which gave insight into Gov. Palin’s endorsement methodology. Gov. Palin tends to prefer underdogs who have the potential to win with her helping hand.
