You Betcha - Sarah Palin's Endorsement May Have Hurt Senate Candidate's Campaign

Huffington Post is reporting that Sarah Palin's endorsement of Republican candidate Kelly Ayotte in the race for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire may have adversely affected the conservative contender's campaign.

A new survey from Public Policy Polling finds that Ayotte has experienced diminished support from moderate voters since the ex-Alaska Governor issued a statement of support for her candidacy.

An excerpt of analysis from PPP:

The Palin endorsement may well be playing a role in this. 51% of voters in the state say they're less likely to back a Palin endorsed candidate to only 26% who say that support would make them more inclined to vote for someone. Among moderates that widens to 65% who say a Palin endorsement would turn them off to 14% who it would make more supportive.
The polling organization notes that 47 percent of New Hampshire voters identify as moderates -- comprising the largest voting bloc in the state:

[Democratic candidate Paul] Hodes' lead with them has expanded from just 8 points at 47-39 in April to now 21 points at 51-30. Ayotte's favorability with them has gone from +5 at 32/27 to -19 at 27/46.


  1. Palin whores out her children to do a reality show. Levi gives up on his 15 minutes of fame but after throwing bristol palin and family under the bus, he now takes back his words against them because he sold out for money and a reality show. What a lard of shit. These people call themselves christians. They are white trash media whores.

  2. Sarah doesn't know New Hampshire voters. You betcha she better not enter the presidential primary there.

  3. Sarah Palindrome--- A terrible syndrome diseasing this world.
