Washington, Feb 13 (ANI): Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has called former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romeny 'a great candidate', but she isn't yet convinced that the Republican presidential contender is 'instinctively' a constitutional conservative.
"I am not convinced and I don't think that the majority of GOP and independent voters are convinced," Fox News quoted Palin, as saying.
"And that is why you don't see Romney get over the hump. He's still in the 30-percentile mark when it comes to approval and primary wins and caucus wins. He still hasn't risen above that yet because we are not convinced," she added.
According to the report, Palin said Republicans need a candidate who is instinctively conservative because it's too late to be taught the fundamentals.
Palin said she believes Romney is still "evolving" as a conservative after five years on the campaign trail and millions of dollars spent. But, she added, that's a high hurdle for all the candidates to demonstrate.
"He still needs to be able to articulate what his solutions are to the challenges facing America-but not just Mitt. All four of them," Palin said.
"What I want to see is that candidate and I believe that most voters in the GOP and independents, we will want to see that candidate whom we can trust will just inherently, instinctively turn right, always err on the side of conservativism, which means smaller, smarter government, more empowerment for the individual, for the private sector," she added.
