Does she really have any followers? I'm a Republican who lives in the home of Rush Limbaugh and one of the most conservative places in the world-- and I can't say that anyone I know (and I'm talking staunch tea baggers, conservatives, etc.) are followers or fans of Sarah Palin. I think at this point she's become a complete media creation and circus.
Not many, I don't think. Combination of things happened and made her look small - her response to the Giffords shooting, halfway jumping in late on the birther thing, and then Trump soaking up all the attention. She'd endear herself to people more at this point if she'd just lay low for a while.
Everyone keeps saying this but it's not true. Virtually every poll every conducted since the 2008 election has her as one of the leading potential candidates for president. Yes she does have followers, as many faithful followers as any viable candidate. It's possible I guess that that's it, that she won't absorb other supporters as people drop out, but if you had an election tomorrow between all of the viable candidates I wouldn't be surprised if she won it.
