Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, will endorse Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, officials with his campaign confirmed. The endorsement provides Mr. Trump with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.
If Donald Trump gets bumped out of the Republican primaries and runs as an independent third party candidate, 36 percent of Republicans and a whopping 19 percent of likely Democratic voters would support him, according to a new poll.
About 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they would buck the party and vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a general election, according to a new poll.

Sarah Palin has millions of followers. The left hates her and never misses the slightest chance to criticize her. But, there are millions of people that see the left for what they are and continue to see Sarah Palin for what she is.
This is a good endorsement for Trump.
Mrs. Palin endorsed several of Mr. Trump’s Republican rivals in their statewide races, including Mr. Cruz during his Senate bid in Texas and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky. Mr. Cruz, after his 2012 primary victory over the incumbent lieutenant governor, David Dewhurst, said he would not have made it to the Senate without Mrs. Palin’s backing.

So does he, and it doesn't seem to have bothered anyone.
I have to know though ... What do endorsements really matter? Has anyone ever really waited breathlessly for this or that person or newspaper to endorse a candidate so you could decide if you were really going to vote for them or not?
he Left has no reason to hate Sarah Palin except for that she's not left wing.

The Left has no reason to hate Sarah Palin except for that she's not left wing. And for the side that claims to endorse woman's rights, the leftist media was particularly sexist against her.
"To the connoisseur of American political theater, the most entertaining aspect of the 2010 election season has been the rise of the right-wing cuties -- political celebrities whose main qualification is looking terrific on television. From where I sit, in a comfortable chair in front of the tube, the GOP Cupcake Factor has enlivened an otherwise dreary campaign season." ~ Gene Lyons (Salon)
