If Palin Enters the 2012 Contest, Christie Will Too
What will it take to get Chris Christie to say yes and run for the GOP nomination?
Come on down — Sarah Palin.
If the queen of the Tea Party makes a grand entrance into the Republican primary sweepstakes the New Jersey governor will finally say yes to all the calls for him to jump into the race.
At this moment Palin has reason to think she should run. A mid-September McClatchy/Marist poll of registered voters put her only 5 percentage points behind President Obama in a head-to-head match-up. No previous poll ever put her in the elite category of Republicans within striking distance of defeating the president.
