He's spot-on with that statement. Honesty and electability rarely go hand-in-hand, and Beck is nothing if not honest.

Fox host Chris Wallace asked Beck if the rally indicated a 2012 political alliance with Palin on Fox New Sunday, trying to hint at any kind of electoral plans for the conservative mogul. Here was Beck's response:
I don't know what Sarah's doing, [but] I have no desire to be president of the United States, zero desire...I don't think that I would be electable.
He also distanced himself from his 2009 comments in which he indicated he thought President Obama was a "racist," while at the same time maintaining that Obama's beliefs actively harmed the American people.
