Poll: 2 percent in Alaska support Zimmerman for president (Supposedly, HRC beats SP!)
United Press International ^ | August 2, 2013 | Kristen Butler

In a recent poll of Alaska voters, George Zimmerman -- who was recently acquitted in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin -- got a surprising 2 percent support as a hypothetical Republican presidential candidate.

The newest Alaska survey from Public Policy Polling shows Hillary Clinton's only chance of winning the state in 2016 would be in a matchup against Republican Sarah Palin, where Clinton would lead 49/40 percent.

Clinton trails all other Republican candidates in the survey. Out in front, Chris Christie leads her by 8 points at 46/38, Jeb Bush leads at 49/42, Rand Paul is up 6 at 49/43, Marco Rubio has a 3-point lead at 45/42, and Paul Ryan leads by a single point at 47/46.

GOP voters in Alaska named Rand Paul as their top choice for Republican candidate at 18 percent, followed by 14 percent for Palin, 13 percent for Christie, 11 percent for Jeb Bush, 9 percent for both Rubio and Ryan, 8 percent for Ted Cruz, 5 percent for Rick Santorum, and 2 percent for George Zimmerman.

When removing Palin and Zimmerman from the field, Paul gets up to 20 percent support, with Bush at 15 percent, Christie and Ryan at 14 percent, Rubio at 10 percent, Cruz at 9 percent, and Santorum at 6 percent.....

He is a natural born citizen, unlike the Kenyan. However, he is disqualified by age until 2024.

Oops! That’s 2020, at which time he will be 37 years old. The minimum age is 35 years.

2 percent of Alaskans clearly have a sense of humor, or shouldn’t be permitted to vote because they are morons. (which is no personal reflection on Zimmerman)

My eco-wacko liberal daughter lives in Alaska (they only consume organic foods and probably even recycle toilet paper) Thank God, they are not involved in government....

Just pull a random first and last name out of the phone book and put them in a poll and they will pull 2%.

Low information types, remember?

It looks like the commie libs down at PPP are scared to death that Sarah Palin could run against Slick Willie’s wife.

Mr. Zimmerman voted for Obama twice — don’t think I’ll pay much attention to this.

Because to the AP Republican voters = Zimmerman = racists.

That will give the racist demagogue Al Sharpton something to bitch about.
