GOP Insiders Sour On Palin
Hotline On Call ^ | January 7, 2009

Posted on 01/07/2010 5:41:06 PM PST by Al B.

A poll of GOP insiders suggests that ex-AK Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has little support among the party's professional class -- and maybe that's just how she wants it.

In a survey of 109 party leaders, political professionals and pundits, Palin finished 5th on the list of candidates most likely to win the party's '12 WH nomination. Ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney (R) was the overwhelming choice of the

Voters were asked to rank 5 candidates in the order of likeliness to capture the GOP nod. The results:

This is very illustrative of what’s wrong with the GOP.

Let's see now - Nixon was the insider.

Reagan was not.

I’m not concerned at all with the GOP.

I go where conservatives go.

I go where Palin goes.

Mitt Romney can kiss my ass.

There's the problem with this poll. Why don't they poll "conservatives" and see where these folks fall? Friggin' elitists covering for elitists!

“has little support among the party’s professional class”

The head of the party’s professional class in Florida was just forced to resign by tea partiers. Even the DEMs were forced to acknowledge this.

Thanks for the blurb, but this has been a known since the campaign. Mitt Romney and crew have been upset ever since the campaign over Mrs. Palin. No big deal. Just remember Romney signed the health car bill into MA and now they are broke...he’s similar to a republican rino nobama. He just doesn’t need a teleprompter. You’re right, I don’t care for Mitt Romney’s politics of lite conservative, just to get ahead. He’s a good businessman, but let him run his business....he’s already ruined MA’s health care system.

Mitt Romney cannot win. Period. Nor can any of the others favored by the political class. In fact, the political class of both parties need to stop worrying about which of them can be elected to which office, and start worrying about which of them might survive what’s coming.
