Skip to comments.I think Palin's unfavoribles are wide, but less than an inch deep

Obviously there is no logical reason for her unfavorables in the polls to be what they are. Did she do anything like let an intern give her oral sex or get involved in some disasterous scandal ? absolutely not. There is NOTHING on her. They have looked and looked and looked. Nobody has found a thing. She seems to be the kind of leader that the American people are wanting to represent them.
They do. I contend to you that her unfavoribles mean NOTHING. It is useless polling data and should have no impact on who wins the nomination in 2012. If she gets the nomination, she would win electoral votes based on national and global events (the economy, ect)
I believe the number of Americans who hate her with a passion is very very small. The unfavoribles you see in the polls are a result of some very shallow group think left over from the 2012. Nobody has seen Saraj Palin run her own national campaign. It would not take much at all to turn those numbers inside out.
What we see here is that the anti palin people in this country are just very loud. Conservatives hear them and for some reason think the high volume of their voice mean they have huge numbers. Even some here on FR get their information from people who hate them and then they are ignorant enough to toss it around like it is fact !
Anybody who has read more than a thread on two since 2008 knows full well that Sarah is NOT nearly 'uptown' enough for you. But are you really really going to call out Sarah over 'mismanaged real estate deal' given what the really smart politicians have done to real estate/mortgages? I really do not care if you like her or not but I do not find you to be a competent judge of character.
And how'd that work out for Obama?
My sense of the whole situation is that after all the rest destroy each other Palin will step in and all the negative from the conservatives and the independents will fade away.
There is nobody that is going to rid America of the DC Prostitution ring, except SP, and that is why the slimy bastards on the GOP side must destroy her. The worst of the lot Perry and Romney. As bad as Romney is as least he can be trusted sometime. Some people have courage and then there are people like you that don't recognize it.
You have PDS and everyone that posts on SP threads knows it.
Ah yes. Aren’t you the poster that blames Palin because she didn’t know law better than the lawyers that crafted it? Yes. You are.
RFK "connected" with some people because his brother had been assassinated.
Have you been in a coma the past 45 years?
And how'd that work out for Obama?
Are you saying that the Tea Party is no different than those Obamunists who were expecting to get some of that Obama-stash? Bumper-sticker, narcissistic Entitlement mentality?
You asked the question.
Reagan was not high risk in 1980. It was his third run for Pres. He was a successful Gov of a big state. Of the candidates running, he was was the safe bet. The only one who beat him in polling was Ford.
Blame the victim, eh?
Victim must bear some of the blame if she helps create and install her opponents “weapon of choice”, hayna?
Some people have courage and then there are people like you that don’t recognize.
I will hold me nose and vote of Perry or Romney as I did for McCain. I will encourage others and send money to support a true conservative that will do what she says she will do. There are hundreds of thousand that feel the same way I do.
Precisely. Coming off the 2008 election, Axelrod, Plouffe, Emmanuel, Dunne, Jarrett, and Rouse identified her as Obama's biggest threat for 2012 and set in motion a plan to destroy her before she could take down Obama. People around here have completely forgotten as to how badly the Republican Party was beaten in 2008, and how the GOP's leaders had all but given up, except for Sarah Palin. She was the only one willing to keep on fighting at the time, and so Obama's goons targeted her.
And there are a bunch of people on FR today who are still enabling Obama's goons with their PDS nonsense. FR will be a much better place for Conservatism once JimRob gets around to finally cleaning house, as he's promised to do.
No he wasn't. See post 69. Your Carter example is not relevant. We are talking about getting the nomination from GOP rank and file. Of the people running in '80, Reagan always lead in the polls. He was not some dark horse with incredibly high negatives coming from behind for an upset.
Yep, tis true!
Actually she made a commitment to announce one way or another within the next 12 days, so as not to be seen as “stringing people along”. We’ll see.
Please see my post 70.
...and much ado about nothing.
Point to me where I mentioned TEA Party.
Funny...I sure don't remember it that way.
John Mccain was the only Republican that would have been able to win in AZ, JD was probably the worst Senate Candidate I have ever seen. Even a dog knows you do not crap where you eat.
CA is lost cause for Republicans and has been for a long time. Where do you come up with this logic of yours? Nightmares after too many Burritos?
