According to the latest Public Policy Polling survey of likely South Carolina primary voters, Sen. Barack Obama leads the Democratic presidential race with the support of 34%, trailed by Sen. Hillary Clinton with 31% and John Edwards with 15%.
On the GOP side, Fred Thompson leads his rivals with 27%, followed by Mitt Romney at 16%, Sen. John McCain at 15%, Rudy Giuliani at 14% and Newt Gingrich at 11%
I’m very happy, this is very exciting
FREDmentum is building:)
This is great...
Who is “public policy polling”?
well good! i would expect him to prevail in south carolina, that’s really not rudy country : )
An Obama vs. Thompson election would at least be interesting.
And of course Fred would crush him :-)
I live in South Carolina.
Friday night I was at a cocktail party and the who party was buzzing about Fred Thompson - and I would say that 40% of us have been hard core Rudy fans.
We all agreed - if Fred and get aggressive - harness a simple message - he will be HELL to beat.
It was a great party - everyone was talking and there were supporters for all the candidates - except McCain - only one idiot old woman was for him (no offense ladies)
We got her drunk and left her in the corner.
Great GOP primary - no doubt.
How did immigration and Little Lord Lindsey figure in the conversation?
I was at a birthday party Saturday night and experienced the same thing... REAL people are ABUZZ about Fred! (and I didn't even start it)
That was quick.. Fred kicked the others to the curb in one day.. Gingrich as a running mate just might be a blockbuster..
Gingrich in a debate with whoever the democrats chose as VeeP would be like sending the democrat through a chipper.. And with Newts input to Freds campaign would be powerful..
Could galvanize the republican party.. should happen soon though.. They are burning daylight..
Here in Washington State, at Saturday’s King County GOP Convention, Fred Thompson got 89 votes in the straw poll taken. Mitt Romney came in 2nd place with 39 votes, followed by the rest of the pack.
Check that link for lots of new news on Fred Thompson.
Immigration - simple - BORDERS first - then who cares. If we can secure the borders - than those here can stay - that seemed to be the majority.
Lord Lindsay - at the party - his name did not come up. Most men (men) and most women (women) don’t care too much for him. That said - he is one hell of a politician - his skills are strong. He sucks
I have been driving around for weeks with a Fred Thompson bumper sticker. Over the weekend someone placed a note on my car asking me to call them to let him know where I got it.
John Edwards polls 15% in his own state. I guess it’s because he’s sued just about everyone in the state at one time or another.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that we won’t be seeing this poll on Hugh Hewitt’s website.
Most South Carolina democrats are black. That’s not typical across the country. I can’t see the racist Democrats nominating a black to be President, even if he is from The Religion of Peace.
On the GOP side, Fred Thompson leads his rivals with 27%
But, actually, we've been predicting this for weeks. I'm thrilled at this.
Crazy. Thompson hasn’t even declared yet, and he’s winning SC? If the guy had been in a debate, they might have impeached Bush and installed him right on the spot.
“Im gonna go out on a limb and say that we wont be seeing this poll on Hugh Hewitts website.”
Mail him the article and ask him to link it on his website...ROFL
You might. Romney at 16% is the highest he has polled yet in the Palmetto state.
You got the wrong Carolina, my friend. John Edwards is from North Carolina. This is a poll of South Carolina.
“Gingrich in a debate with whoever the democrats chose as VeeP would be like sending the democrat through a chipper..”
Yeah right. Newt really sent algore through the wood chipper on the global warming scam didn’t he?(sarcasm)
Newt’s treatment of his ill wife and his subsequent affairs outed him for the low class human being and hyocrite he is.
Thompson will NEVER choose Newt as a running mate, thank God.
LOL.. first time I have seen that.... I like it.
My gawd, Rudy's in FOURTH place. He can't even top McNutz.
And Fred is nearly double the pack without even entering the race.
McNut down to 15% in the state he’s been working since 2000? In the state he absolutely has to win.
ROTFLMAO! This is excellent.
“According to a new Public Policy Polling survey of likely Iowa caucus-goers, John Edwards and Mitt Romney hold double digit leads in the first major contest of the 2008 presidential race.( snip)
On the Republican side, Romney is at the front with 31% support, while Fred Thompson comes in second with 15%, followed by Newt Gingrich with 10%, John McCain with 9% and Rudy Giuliani with 8%.”
Second place in Iowa for Fred now but that will change once the cornhuskers get up to speed.
Rudy is being CRUSHED which is always a good thing.
FredHead...FredNeck...works for me. I’m in all the way!
I hope. The country might be stupid enough to elect Obama. He is Jimmy Carter but with charm.
“My gawd, Rudy’s in FOURTH place. He can’t even top McNutz.”
Rooty is FIFTH in Iowa..lol
I much prefer Fredneck to Fredhead. Sounds too much like Deadheads, Grateful Dead fans...........
“Fred now but that will change once the cornhuskers get up to speed.”
That’s Hawkeyes my friend.
Oh most definatly.
Obama is good at debating other democrats, but when he debated Keyes (who had no shot what so ever of winning), he got crushed.
It didn't matter much, Obama had that election safe and in the bag, but Keyes exposed all of Obama's weak points debating, it was bizarre.
Well, They have lots of corn to husk in Iowa too...lol
There are increasing signs there will be an “all Tennessee” election, with Fred Thompson versus Albert Gore. Hillary Clinton has too many people against her; Barack Hussein Obama is too inexperienced, too Muslim and not that great at debating; John Edwards is, well, John Edwards (I won’t quote Ann Coulter). On the GOP side, Rudy Giuliani is not a republican; John McCain is crazy; Mitt Romney is too slick and the rest are also-rans.
Gossip?.. You know nothing of this story.. except what you've heard.. Who could?.. Married life has twists and turns and you were Not in on any of them.. Newtwise..
Gossip is perverse.. and one dimensional..
agreed, Newt is radioactive.
GOP should stay away from him. Smart guy, but polarizing (and a tad arrogant).
Let’s beat the drum for the term “Fredneck” (I’m one!) to describe Thompson For President supporters.
Just to p.o. the driveby media so they’ll start calling us racists.
Just so the Dems will go postal and say we Frednecks are racist sexist fascist bigot homophobe nativists blah blah blah.
This is really neat. A few days ago I was resigned to doing nothing in the polling booth in 2008 except to vote against the Democrat. Now there’s an actual conservative Republican to vote FOR!
Though Edwards was born in SC he is from NC. Only in the medias mind is Edwards considered from SC.
FredEx....When you care enough to send the VERY BEST!...........
