Even Sarah’s most ardent supporters sometimes tell us “there’s no way the media is going to let her win”. Unfortunately some conservatives voters have the mindset this is true.

The Electoral Votes allotted to each state will change significantly in 2012 due to the census and will favor Palin. This is subject to review, per the census totals, but projections of gain and losses are as follows:
• +3: Texas
• +2: Florida
• +1: Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Utah
• -1: Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Pennsylvania

Let’s look at the most likely path to victory and the one that was evident in the week following her selection as VP candidate prior to the economic collapse in 2008. The map will you show you the colors and the outcome of Palin winning back: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana, Colorado & Nevada for an electoral victory of 282-256.
Governor Palin could lose either Colorado or Nevada and still win. Ohio would remain the key but the ‘Obama Economy’ has driven that states unemployment rate through the roof. It will be a battle but Palin can win there in a traditionally GOP state.
