Michele Bachmann vs. Sarah Palin On The Issues

Side-by-side Issue Stances

Authored by Jesse Gordon

Bachmann vs. Palin On The Issues

A side-by-side comparison of two Republican leaders, detailing their issue stances on key issues. Based on information from the website OnTheIssues.org.

Pundits claim that Bachmann's demographic similarity to Palin (both are charismatic conservative female elected officials and Tea Party favorites) contributed to Palin's declining to enter the 2012 presidential race. The pundits assume that their demographic similarity translates into interchangability on issue stances. This book explores where that's true and where it's untrue.
