2016 presidential campaign and Trump endorsement mostly gossip, trivia[edit]

The whole "2016 presidential campaign and Trump endorsement" section is mostly gossip and trivia. The fact that she endorsed Trump is, i guess, relevant, but reporting on *speculation* that she would be the vice presidential nominee? Then following it up by claiming that Ben Carson is somehow a surrogate for Trump is absurd and not backed up by the source cited. The back and forth about her and Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are all minutiae that have no real place here. Perhaps there is some page about Trump's presidential campaign that this could be worked into but here its just trivia. I am going to offer a new edit that cuts to what actually matters.

Sophieloeb (talk) 22:13, 20 September 2016 (UTC) unnecessary detail regarding Palin's spending on a private chef.

Sophieloeb (talk) 22:17, 20 September 2016 (UTC)185- Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol, comment is a bit random in the whole theme of that paragraph regarding Palin's VP race.

Environment Section[edit]

In the environment section of her political positions [8.5] It says she was against "cap and tax." That should be "cap and trade." "Cap and tax" is a idiotic rhetorical device that opponents for carbon pricing use to describe cap and trade. There are no taxation going on in cap and trade. Please change this immediately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.1.107.145 (talk) 17:51, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Done. --Malerooster (talk) 17:26, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Sarah Palin Political Positions[edit]

Some of the citations are coming from biased sources. Reference 291 for example comes from a biased page and the information presented that she is in favor of the death penalty can easily be retrieved from a more reliable and less biased source. Some information is also out of date. For instance, Sarah Palin and many other Republicans have changed their stances on same-sex marriage. Palin believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman but is not opposed to gay rights and thinks that everyone should have the freedom to choose who their partner is regardless of gender. This is important and should be added to the section of her stances on social issues. Her approval ratings provide little detail and are distracting to the rest of the article because it is unnecessary. Gsoffer26 (talk) 01:02, 31 January 2017 (UTC)Grant Soffer
