Skip to comments.Poll Shows Palin Surge in GOP Primaries
Posted on 05/05/2011 8:16:22 AM PDT by therightliveswithus
In the last several months there has not been a solid frontrunner in Republican polls for the 2012 nomination. While Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney have been near the top, neither has been dominant.
Donald Trump was able to surge last month, although where his polls go now is unclear. With much of the attention reverting away from him, he may see a dip in his vote share.
And it appears that may have already happened-- and Sarah Palin has picked up the slack. Palin has reduced her profile over the last several months, cutting back on public speaking events. Many supporters appeared to move towards Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann.
Now, in the newest Quinnipiac poll, it appears that the former Alaska Governor has received a new boost in support.
Romney: 18% Palin: 15% Huckabee: 15% Trump: 12%

America Needs a Margaret Thatcher. Go Sara.
These polls are useless at this stage. They are historically poor predictors of what will happen, and they reflect little of any importance, but rather just name recognition, in such a potentially crowded fields, especially when the “headliners” haven’t even entered the race (or announced that they’re not going to).
Onslaught of the Mommy Grizzlies
Imagine a President who doesn’t agitate and create chaos, who believes in America’s exceptionalism and entreprenerual spirit, smaller government, good stewardship of taxpayer dollars, an original American born natural citizen with an original birth certificate, who doesn’t ‘pussyfoot’ around or dither, who wasn’t raised Muslim in Islamic countries, who would protect our way of life instead of bowing to Muslim kings...
Her name is Sarah Palin.
do they hand out no-doz at the door for mitt yawnmey events??
If you want to find the best person for America, look
at the one the Marxist ridicule the most.
And John Bolton as U.N. ambassador.
I agree, and I also think poll numbers alone are always questionable unless the reader knows how the questions were framed.
I don't think anyone anywhere can generate the enthusiasm that Sarah Palin will once she enters the race in earnest. That kind of poll cannot be manipulated.
I agree completely.
Margaret Thatcher would never have debased herself by doing reality TV with “Kate Plus 8.”
I'm torn - Bolton for UN Ambassador and Liz Cheney for SoS, or the other way around?
see my tagline....
From the same poll, the devil is in the details;
Percentage who would never vote for each candidate
Total of (Enthusiastic + Consider) / Never Vote For
Maggie couldn't and wouldn't kill a caribou and butcher it while the blood is still warm, either. Sarah is a different person, with different traditions. She will be a great President.
LOL - there are so many great possibilities!
