Sarah Palin had big impact on primaries, minimal influence on general elections
Sarah Palin had a tremendous impact on some Republican primaries where she endorsed losers in Nevada and Alaska for the U.S. Senate, but in close general election races, she wasn't much of a factor, reports Russ Britt.
“She had a major impact on the primaries,” said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics. “In the general [election], I think she was of minimal consequence.”
