Testing Alaskan support for Sarah Palin as US president

Should Sarah Palin run for the American presidency? Newsnight has been to Alaska, Ms Palin's home state, to find out whether people there think she should run and why.

In the order of appearance they are: Ivan Moore, a pollster who has worked with both Democrats and Republicans; Tracey Porreca, who founded; Bob Lester, a friend of Ms Palin who regularly has her on his radio show; and Dave Stieren, a conservative talk show host and Palin critic.

Watch Jackie Long's film on Sarah Palin - including an interview with Ms Palin - on Newsnight on Monday 7 March 2011 at 10.30pm on BBC Two, and then afterwards on the Newsnight website and BBC iPlayer.
