During today’s The Five, the panel went around the table assessing last night’s Iowa results and the subsequent analysis, particularly Sarah Palin‘s comments on the end of the race, praising Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney but warning the Republican Party that “the worst thing that the GOP machine can do is marginal Ron Paul and his supporters.” Most of the panel agreed, except for Eric Bolling, who argued that his supporters were mostly one-issue voters.
Bob Beckel was the first to react to Palin’s comments, and called them “one of the smartest things that was said” on air last night.” “She’s exactly right… he’s the only one with committed supporters,” Beckel remarked, to which Kimberly Guilfoyle agreed.
Bolling did not, however, suggesting that the only thing Rep. Paul supporters cared about was drugs. “What percentage of the vote would Ron Paul get if he wasn’t a libertarian and he wasn’t for legalizing pot, marijuana, or other drugs?” He dismissed the voters as being “all 25 years old… he talks about foreign policy and their eyes glaze over.”
