Skip to comments.Iowa Voters Overwhelmingly Support Palin For President (w/Video)
Posted on 02/07/2011 11:42:08 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
On a Hannity Road to 2012″ focus group special, Frank Luntz asked Iowa Republican voters who they would like to see run for president in 2012. Below is their response when asked about Governor Palin.
(VIDEO AT LINK)
Wow. That’s a big poll. Four people. What’s the margin of error on that thing?
So you didn’t bother to watch the video?
Oh, I did. It’s a Frank Luntz focus group. Which hardly justifies the headline.
But whatever. Good night.
If he was trumpeting Ron Paul, Duncan Hunter or Tom Tancredo, we’d never hear the end of it. Face it: She isn’t going away!!
look at it this way, 2ndDV: the price of liberty
is having to deal with Eternal Vigilance.
Given the endless campaign by the media to destroy her this video is a representation of her resilience. Those folks were genuinely receptive to Palin being elected. I’m sure FOX would have loved it if no one raised their hands. Watch the video.
I watched the segment and most of the group yelled Huckabee when Luntz first asked who they want for President. They also like Gingrich; one lady liked Romney. Christie was also mention, IIRC. Luntz then asked about Palin, and most would also like her for a candidate with about 3 holding up their hands when asked who didn’t want her for President. On the whole, Huckabee is their first choice. I hope they reconsider.
I dont know about her. I get this feeling from her that she is another typical lying politician who would say anything.
I’ve met her personally on the campaign trail..didnt talk a lot but we did talk. If first impressions mean anything, she didnt hit it well with me.
Reminds me of Mitt For Brains Romney.
You go Girl!
Meanwhile, FOX and the mainstream GOP RINOs are backing Romney and looking at Chris “The Islamophile” CHristie.
They like his variety show.
Tell you what. If she is as good as some claim, then she should have called the GB Packers and gave them congrats right? Just for political points right? I mean if she is going to run one would think you’d think ahead of your opponent.
Obama is yet to call the champs. Sarah should have done it ASAP after that game.
Now you might say, so what? So what?! Over 100 million poeple watched that game and she could have plugged into 100 million people all in one swift move.
Politicians are DUMB!
I guess smoked corn screws your cognitive dissonance. How can these Iowans believe, based on record and personality, that Huckleberry is the candidate? I would be willing to bet a dollar that IF huckleberry is the nominee, Obama or a 527 group will actually run a commercial portraying Huckleberry as Gomer Pyle.
“I get this feeling from her that she is another typical lying politician who would say anything.”
Amazing. You’ve managed to get it exactly backwards.
Palin is the least political and the most sincere of all of them. (Except Bachmann, who seems to equal Palin in this regard.)
That's all we can ask for anyone. People who won't give her that much are probably not worth arguing the point with.
The meme from the media that gop voters do not want her to run is also blown away her. IA voters not only want her to run but they are open to her positions and candidacy. which tells me most polls on Palin lately are complete bullcrap and trying to frame the debate instead of presenting the facts on the ground.
All signs are pointing to Huck not being in the race this go around. His final nail in the coffin is reports say his wife is 100% against him running.....
stranger thinks have happened but the signs at this time point to him not running. I think the pollsters simply include him in the polls to make it appear Palin is tied with Mitt. Take Huck out of the Polls and Palin will be up by 10 to 15 pts on Mitt and the entire meme of the MSM would be destroyed....
yeah and the MSM would accuse her of being an attention whore and injecting herself into every story.
That's the thing I like about gov Palin when she is unsure of a subject she always goes back to those core beliefs to make a decision. Like Eygpt. she doesn't know enough to make a decision so she reverts back to her belief in Reagan's trust but verify and calls for the admin to release More information to help Americans understand what is going on.
she always returns to those core beliefs. The MSM wants to spin that as being shallow but like with Reagan It is really being very smart.
I was making a pun (a pretty good one, I think, considering it was totally spontaneous)
I just looked up who EV was, never having noticed his name before: yeah, looks like he’s into self-promotion of an indirect sort, kinda like he wants you to click on his name and go to his AIP/FR homepage and get seduced/
I avoid labelling anyone a troll, and I know pissant from having read many hundreds of his posts/replies. He’s just opinionated, like most here on FR.
On the “who will be the nominee” front, it’s been clear to me for a LONG time, that the ONE person that gets all the flak from every conceivable direction, of course, is the person who’s got the broadest and strongest appeal, and that’s Sarah Palin. Both the Left and the RINOs should know it by now: the more you attack her, even in ‘subtle’ ways, the more popular she becomes, and the more likely you will be facing a VERY formidable candidate about a year from now, when all the dust settles. It’s her inner strength and convictions that carries her forward, and growing numbers of people have come to respect that, even if sometimes grudgingly, above all else.
I think that’s a very shrewd assessment; the pre-campaign equivalent of putting a spoiler in to draw votes away....
Huckabee is a very genial guy, but I can see a million ways he would be a disaster as a candidate,(forget about a disaster as PRESIDENT) and then it would all go down the drain. Whoever becomes the GOP candidate MUST be ready to go all the way, and this whole process will start LESS THAN A YEAR FROM NOW. It ain’t Romney, it ain’t Gingrich, and it certainly ain’t Jeb Bush. Once more EVERYONE ‘left’ and ‘right’ are ignoring the facts out there that a SECOND WAVE of Tea Party passion is about to rush right over them. It’s clear to me that RIGHT NOW, Sarah Palin is the candidate, and she IS the only one who has been “going all the way” for about three years now, unlike all those others.
She’s not the president. That’s traditionally his role. Can you imagine the hair-pulling and gnashing of teeth within the media, intelligensia, Hollywood and nutroots had she done so?
