President -- 2012
Sarah Palin: 76
Mike Huckabee: 54
Mitt Romney: 52
Bobby Jindal: 19
Ron Paul: 9
In a straw poll at the Olathe Republican Party's annual Picnic and Straw Poll Saturday at the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop, Todd Tiahrt grabbed a big win in a straw poll faceoff.
Tiahrt and Moran, both members of Congress, are squaring off in the GOP primary next year for the U.S. Senate.
Tiahrt: 165 votes.
The 3rd District, which encompasses the site of the poll, is a major battleground in the primary race given that Moran hails from Hays and Tiahrt from Wichita.
Organizers also staged a 3rd District Congress straw poll for the right, presumably, to take on Democratic incumbent Dennis Moore next year.
Patricia Lightner: 74.
Macie Houston: 33
Daniel Gilyeat: 30
Darla Jaye: (write-in): 24.
Sam Brownback: 197
Secretary of State:
Kris Kobach: 192
JR Claeys: 22

Look for her to be a target of every one of the candidates listed below her.
Is anybody even sure that there definitely will be elections in ‘12? The leftist majority could really end the idea of even having any more elections in the future!
If they weren't worried, they would ignore her.
“This is all a lie, everyone knows Mitt Romney is the only one who is smart enough, experienced enough and gosh darned it good looking enough to be our candidate.
Sarah is just an un intellectual back water hick with a trashy family yada, yada yada etc. etc. etc....”
You many now resume your reality based debate where Mrs. Palin is becoming an outstanding potential candidate that is making the RINO Country Club "Republicans" REAL nervous...
Two years from now, straw polls STILL won’t be very good predictors.
Still, YAY SARAH!
she’g got my vote if she runs
Gad, I can’t believe Huckabee came in second.
I’d vote for Ron Paul ahead of the Huchster.
Gov. Barbour did a great interview this morning: now that he’s head of the RGA, do you think we could get him to fill in for Mr. Steele’s appearances too?
Try already happening.
Have you seen the Mittbot posts the past few weeks alone?
Take any given anti Palin post on FR and track back the posters history. 95% are Mittbots.
She is the greatest threat to their golden child.
You can tell that the left fears Palin by how loudly they attack her.
LOL...and true, too.
What I am hoping is that if he doesn't run himself (a 50/50 shot) he will assist Palin. Word is he sees potential there.
There will be an election or Iran will look like a sunday school picnic compared to what will hit the fan here if on is denied for any reason what so ever.
Woman looks better in a T-shirt and baggy pants than the First Lady of Fashion looks in anything!
Yep, just take a look at THIS thread, for instance...
OR this one...
I'd vote for her...again.
And he’s pretty politically astute!
Of course I am sure those here on free republic who see to take issue with her are only offering agenda free constructive criticism.
You can also throw in Victor Davis Hanson.
I know that some of the most diehard Mittens (that was their term to describe themselves) on fr were some of palin’s biggest supporters once she was picked for vp.
Those without an established RINO etc. agenda or candidate have little issue with Palin.
Let 'em have at it. It will make our final candidate that much stronger. If it's Palin, I'm good. She's going to have a real thick hide by then and she'll be able to rip the azz out of The One
She was in his head real big during the last campaign and if she's the Republican pick, she already knows how to flip 0's switches.
It'll be fun to watch.
She gets my vote for the 2nd time.
Well either they have missed a meeting or have been very quite. The vast majority of Anti Palin rhetoric is coming from those with a posting history straight back to Romney, at least among those who are being subtle about it. A few are rather straight forward.
A guy that can tell a crowd in a speech at the Hoover Institution, "I've found more wisdom on 100 acres south of Fresno than on the quad over there at Stanford" is my kind of intellectual...LOL.
Mark Sanford use to be included in these polls......is she now drawing the lion’s share of former Sanford supporters? It’s notable that whoever wins SC usually goes on to win the GOP nomination.
Your destruction is at hand.
And she's *hot*.
I learned much more outside of college than I ever did in the classroom.
Of course that would brand me an anti intellectual to many of our elite Country clubbers here who do such things, but on the contrary it is quite the opposite. I appreciate my time at university, for two main reasons.
First I did learn critical thinking skills and concepts which were invaluable to acquiring knowledge in the outside world, and secondly, I learned to even recognize the most subtle BS when I saw it, mainly due to over exposure while in school...
All the left seriously needs is one or more “9/11’s” to really happen within the U.S. just prior to the November ‘10 election and/or prior to the November ‘12 election and then use such situation(s) as reasons to postpone having any elections in November ‘10 and/or November ‘12! I really hope that doesn’t happen, but leftists are already screwing up the entire U.S. in too many ways to count, including, but not limited to, the ongoing weakening of U.S. national security!
The Senate race is going to be interesting. I think Tiahrt won because he was there. But it's going to be hard fought race between him and Moran.
Palin winning doesn't surprise me at all.
Isn’t that the truth?!
Oh, I like it!
Palin and Bachmann in ‘12. “We have more Balls than they do”!
Palin and Bachmann in 12. We have more Balls than they do!
I don’t know, but you might want to consult with counterpunch.
MEANWHILE IN THE OBAMA BATCAVE IN DC......
That’s it, the secret is out!!! We can’t contain this abominable caribou barbie. Nothing is working!
Our ethics complaints have been rejected
Our media hit pieces and have been deflected
Frenchie and crew have come off as fools
Mittens and Huckster are looking like tools
Letterman got skinned. Lauer got dimmed. Couric is desperate to erase her sins.
IDIOTS...I’M SURROUNDED BY FRICKEN IDIOTS!!!!
Axelrod, take a note and give it to the Daily KOS, ACORN and those in the MSM who still have a job.
ATTENTION. Evil overlord in DC requies the services of:
“rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperadoes, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, half-wits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists....”
RINOS, winos, mudd flappers, mudd crappers, dirt divers, muck rakers, bloggers, floggers, Irish cloggers, media hacks, plumber’s cracks, Daily KOS, donkey’s who floss, old disgruntral reporters with moss, and Hollywood celebs who look really lost.
“I dont know, but you might want to consult with counterpunch.”
Sorry...”What’s not to like for any rational human...”
