I didn’t see this poll when it was originally posted, but I thought to myself: “Duh! Who WOULDN’T choose Palin?”

I think he meant as far as iconic hairstyles.

Palin... though this is obviously a terrible situation to be in.

I think she's less evil than Trump and while she is very stupid, I think Trump is much stupider.

The real challenge is Pence vs. Trump vs. Palin. Pence wins, I think?

Yes this is a zombie. And I'm surprised that Trump is ahead.

Palin is an idiot like Trump. But miles ahead of him in just about every other aspect. I think, for one thing, that she may actually care about the country. That's sort of a plus when you're President.

Trump should demonstrate he can helm the governorship of a state before he were to consider assuming the responsibilities of the presidency. This question is kind of insulting to Palin.

Put it in a magazine, she'll never see it.

Hitler didn't do all those things in the first two years in power either.

But we've already got the camps and the prolonged propaganda campaign of demonization of a minority population including reference to them as "vermin". We've got repeated reference to the media as an "enemy of the people" and we've got rallies in which he incites his followers to violence. Oh, and we've got supporters who march through the streets carrying swastikas and chanting anti-Jewish slogans.

Plus his official spokesperson said this yesterday:

So - you were saying?

He's not as capable as Hitler and there are a lot more barriers in his way than Hitler had, but he's expressed admiration for pretty much all the worst strongman dictators. Don't think he wouldn't jump at the chance to be Hitler if he could get away with it.

Palin. Definitely Palin.

While she's not smart, I don't think that she's evil. She can surround herself with smart people that can help.

Trump is evil. No matter who he surrounds himself with, he'll still be evil.


ETA: Just saw that this is a zombie. It would be interesting to see how the voting patterns have changed over time.

Palin appears to be rapidly closing in on Trump, compared to where things were a few days ago. (FWIW, I didn't vote in the poll when it was first posted, although I'm not sure whether that's because I didn't see it or because I didn't have a strong opinion; I would now take Palin in a heartbeat, and voted accordingly.)

Prior to Trump winning the election, I recall Sarah Palin basically being the GOP villain on the Dope. The Trump before there was a Trump. I think the vote was 3-1 in favor of Trump against Palin.

After Trump won, the majority of votes on this thread have probably been in Palin's favor since.
