Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Divides The GOP Elite
Posted on 12/11/2009 4:27:20 PM PST by USALiberty
Sarah Palin may draw ecstatic crowds in "real America," but among Republican insiders in Washington, she's not so popular.
National Journal's annual Insiders Poll issue will come out Friday, but we've got some early results; the most interesting finding is how many GOP insiders and members of Congress listed Palin as one of their least favorite members of the party.
Palin was the top response when 85 GOP strategists and insiders were asked, "Which voice in your party would you most like to mute?" 28 percent listed Palin; Republican National Committee Chairman Michael came in second, with 12 percent.

In other words: She makes the RINOs squirm. Good!
Good for Sarah. I hope those “RNC insiders” develop a serious case of heartburn over her.
Seems to me that the Republican “elite” are so out of touch with their base that it would probably be better if they just all head out of town anyway
NO RINOS! Palin in 2012! She’s the only one I trust to NEVER turn into a RINO.
You can tell Sarah isn’t about to give any of these folks job during her campaign or listen to their voices advice from afar.
It is very good news
Who was doing the asking?
Since the GOP no longer seems to listen to the PEOPLE, perhaps that is a GOOD thing.
The GOP elites will get their comeuppance in 2012.
I would like to find a complete list of RINOs so I can start campaigning AGAINST them.
100% of Rebel REpublicans want to Mute Rinos.
Pray for America’s Freedom
I think of Ms. Palin as a conservative rather than a Republican. If that means a third party... So be it.
I don’t recognize anyone as “elite”. A few fat cats appointed themselves to royalty status but I’m not impressed!
Excellent. I rue the day these weasels jump on the Palin bandwagon, as they will because they like gravy trains more than priciples.
Funny, she seems to be uniting and igniting the base.
Run for Prez on the Consrvative/Tea Party ticket. When the momentum becomes so huge, the GOP will have no choice but draft her or form a coalition to bring the Tea Party into the GOP.
Sarah is grassroots, the biggest nightmare there is for establishment Republicans. She is everything they aren’t and attracting support they can never have. She represents what most Americans think, what most Americans want, while establishment Republicans are so embedded in the corrupt system they can’t extricate their heads from big government butt. I prefer Sarah’s viewpoint.
So Sarah isn’t popular with the RINOS...GOOD..more reason to vote for her. Screw the RINOS and screw the GOP, if the GOP doesn’t want to listen to US we will make them listen to us. I don’t give one dime to the Republican party, they abandoned their Conservative principles a long time ago. I support Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann because those two women have more balls then the men in the GOP. Why do they want them to shut up so badly, why, because they are not kissing Obama’s ass. Is the GOP that fearful of being called a racist that they won’t even go after Obama, its a damn shame that the GOP has turned into a bunch of sissies
These pathetic elites don’t realize that a big part of Palin’s appeal is that she isn’t one of the elite, and doesn’t seem to listen to them. Besides, it doesn’t look like any of them were even brave enough to give their names, which means that they are cowardly, worthless wimps.
Wow, that Atlantic post at Ambinder’s is NOTHING BUT GOOD NEWS!
The Beltway crowd despise her. This is just like Goldwater and Reagan.
Time to lead the Revolution from Below, Sarah!
I hope she’s taking names.
These phonies will try to worm back into her inner circle if she succeeds.
A third party, or for that matter four or five parties, is the only external force that is going to correct the incest in Washington DC.
Think the Media will fight tooth and nail to deny voice to those external forces?
AMEN!! I hope she is making friends with GREAT, CAPABLE CONSERVATIVES that shge can call on to be in her Cabinet or Advise her....She can’t win unless she has great people that know how to get good things done and where the bathrooms are.
The “GOP Elite” hijacked the traditional GOP. It is Palin’s duty to take the party back.
The RINOS can form their own party.
The shine of the elite is fading to tarnish when exposed to the harsh chemistry of old truth
I’d say those rinos won’t be there to enjoy an inspired conservative comeback.
The winds of 2010 are getting stronger by the day!
Exactly! Those country club Republicans are the problem with the Republican party. Those country club Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites. They don't give a damn about the hard-working people who make up the core of the Republican party.
