Palin: Resignation No Impediment to Nomination

Prior to her resignation, Governor Palin's odds at Intrade were bouncing around between 10 and 15%. According to Intrade, Palin's resignation caused a momentary blip where her odds dipped briefly to the single digits, but then bounced right back up to the 15% level, closing Tuesday at 16%.

It remains to be seen what the future holds, but according to Intrade, the announcement had no immediate lasting impact on her potential as a presidential nominee.

My sense is that Palin has a populist support that would crawl over glass for her that amounts to about 20% of the electorate, plus another 20% that generally support her. She also has 20% of the population that despises her, and 20% who are generally negative.

No, since the people who despise Obama have a valid reason, usually, for doing so (obvious racists excluded). The antiPalinites are mostly drooling libtards following the party line like good little goose-stepping sheep.

Gosh, guys, haven't you heard the latest WAPO-ABC poll? Palin's numbers are falling steadily.

Among libtards that actually respond to WAPO-ABC polling questions, I'm sure that's even true.
