As reported in Time Online.

“Mitt Romney still does badly among those who social issues as the biggest issue in 2012, as does Newt Gingrich. Perhaps more surprising, Sarah Palin wins among those voters who see national security and foreign policy as the most important issue” reports Michael Scherer

There is no doubt that Palin supporters are smiling like Cheshire cats seeing this. Spending, economy and social issues numbers can be addressed by Palin later, but the big risk for a female candidate is whether she can be seen as “tough enough” to be President. It looks like she is surpassing expectations by her doubters so far.

You also have to feel bad for the other three in the poll, national security is the one area that has to be tough being “beaten by a girl”.
