Florida: Romney 52, Huckabee 21, Palin 18 (Barf)
Hot Air ^ | March 11, 2010 | Allahpundit

Posted on 03/11/2010 5:42:36 PM PST by C19fan

We’ve done a million posts about this three-way match-up but I don’t think we’ve done one yet about a key swing state. Not what I would have predicted. Florida’s the first really important stop on the GOP calendar that we’ve looked at, and Romney’s lead there is overwhelming. He gets 52% to 21% for Huckabee and 18% for Palin. It’s closer, but still a double digit advantage, in Colorado. There Romney gets 44% to 25% for Palin and 17% for Huckabee.

Are GOP primary voters so lazy that their automatic default is to vote for the "2nd" place guy from the previous election? Seems like a crappy week for us conservatives who want Willard to just go away.

Polling this early is ludicrous.

And if they must poll can we please have somebody besides the also rans from the last election? No slight to Palin intended - she the best of the bunch by a long shot.

THANK YOU - YOU GET THE GOLD STAR OF THE DAY!

Polling this early is indeed silly, we don’t even know who will run, nor how much of a shake up happens in the mid-terms

BTW....It’s been notice that Palin has many wait-n-see attitude towards her.

You're 100% correct, there does seem to be a bit of intellectual laziness with this type of poll.
Governor Romney doesn't excite many voters to pull the lever.
Governor Huckabee will get creamed due to pardoning that killer who later murdered four police officers.
Governor Palin is the best of this bunch for sure.

Even with all the “other” potential non-has-been contenders, Palin is still by far the best of the bunch.

The only polls that matter are the ones on the dates of the PRIMARIES and then of course the first Tuesday of November, 2012.

However, *if* Palin does intend to run, it will be a huge test to see how well she and her supporters can get organized. This will have to be a 100% grassroots effort, as there will obviously be NO help from the establishment, and everyone in the media lives and breathes to see the day she will be defeated “for good” (according to their book.)

However, with GOD, all things are possible. :)

We shall see what happens!

Actually, I hope none of the above are on the top of the ticket for president. Just because all standards were thrown out for the impostor that resides in our White House, doesn’t mean that we need any of these to be elected.

Altho I deeply love and respect Palin, I don’t think she’s ready for the White House. And the other two people mentioned should not be allowed anywhere near it either: Romney for being a huge RINO and Huckabee for being one too with the added tag of having deliberately holding back his delegates to allow McLame to get the nomination.

First two are RINOs and Palin, God love her, is not yet ready for such a task . . . second on the ticket is ok, but not the top.

Romney WILL BE the Republican candidate. It’s His turn! He will complete the Soetoro presidency if he manages to get elected. He will get all the socialist things enacted that the Kenyan can’t get. Primarily he will get AMNESTY regardless of what he says about it in the campaign if Soetoro doesn’t get it first.

I agree. Somehow Fla got a bad case of the RINO's. Ever since Crist endorsed McCain before, now Jeb Bush? Strange thing is, Palin is a huge hit with the public here. Somethings not passing the smell test.

Romney = Obama in oh so many ways.


“Romney: I Was For The Bailout Before I Was Against It”

“Romney praises Obama
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney praised President Obama
at a GOP fundraising dinner Wednesday ..
"I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."

In those PRIMARIES there will be a huge number of reregistered Democrats because the Social Democrats will already have their candidate unless Soetoro bows out. That and the obsession with Romney in the top of the Party because it is His Turn will make sure that Romney is the Republican candidate.

CRIST HAD A BIG LEAD TOO!!!!!!

LOOK AT HIM NOW!!!

The time for fooling around with RINO’s and marxists who call themselves “Progressives” to hide their marxist agenda (as if that will continue to work forever) is fast coming to a close.

Its a blessed thing that the degenerate slick son of a bitch ROMNEY from a family of cowards is going to try for the GOP nomination because it will once and for all propel a candidate (as yet undetermined) to stop pulling punches and declare WAR ON SOCIALISM.

The candidate must name names, vow to destroy the members of the “Congressional Progressive Caucus” and excoriate geographic areas such as San Francisco and other socialist strongholds as “US AGAINST THEM”

The effin party is over, time to smack down these CPUSA stooges and fellow travelers, put PR mens heads on pikes, and put the fear of God and the sword in the hearts of the ENEMY WITHIN

This will have to be a 100% grassroots effort, as there will obviously be NO help from the establishment, and everyone in the media lives and breathes to see the day she will be defeated “for good”

Going Rogue, pp. 110/11: "In 2005, I was the first Republican to file for governor because I didn't want to play the political "wait your turn in line" game to see if Murkowski, the incumbent, would seek reelection.I knew I wouldn't have the backing of the party machine anyway, so my reliance on a grassroots effort required an early edge before the other guys started lining up.In the primary, I was running against Governor Murkowski, of course, and his friend Randy Ruedrich was still the state GOP chairman - a bad omen to some but to us a motivating challenge. To win the primary, I'd have to go through both of them. It also meant we'd have no backing from the state party. I found my underdog status and the outsider label quite liberating. If there were only a few politicians bold enough to hook up with us, that was fine too. We built a network of nonpolitical, hardworking Alaskans who were tired of politicians bending with the wind."

If the Republicans think that they can just, not be Democrats, and walk RomneyCare into the White House, I'll be voting for Sarah if I have to write her in.

I'm beginning to think it's possible a third party will be launched to Palin's left if she wins the nomination, an almost ideal situation for her as it was for Reagan in 1980 with liberal Republican John Anderson.

If Romney wins the nomination and you hold to your statement, they you have voted for King Obama. Many of you just don't get it, we will have no perfect candidate so our best bet to save what we can of America is take the lesser of the two evils. Which are you for?

He can’t win the election but he has already won with the Republican Committee. He is the True Heir after McCain. It’s His Turn is the organizing principle of the Republican Party. The Republicans really don’t care if they win just so long as everyone gets his turn at the appropriate time. Reagan isn’t really appreciated by the party poobahs because he stepped on Bush Sr’s toes when it was Sr’s Turn. I hope Sarah Palin can step all over Romney.

And this time Palin has the socio-path media challenge as well, something she didn’t have to deal with so much in Alaska. She’s obviously taking the reins on that level too: Fox News position, allying with Andrew Breitbart, looking to do documentary about the state she governed, facebook page, twitter, etc...etc...

Romney finished second in 2008 and not terribly far from McCain in Florida. If it hadn't been for Crist’s endorsement late in the game, and Crist was popular back then, Romney would probably have won Florida.

Huckabee and Palin splitting the social Conservative vote could easily translate to a Romulan victory.

If Obamacare passes, everything will change.

Every Republican candidate must make a commitment to the repeal of Obamacare—lock, stock, and barrel. No “fixes” or “tweaks.”

Romney cannot be trusted to go for repeal, even if he commits to it. Neither can Nanny Huckabee.

The Left has probably not realized a big change that has occurred in the past year: Freedom-loving Americans now know about Alinsky and Cloward-Piven.

Obamacare is custom-made for Cloward-Piven. Phone lines jammed with people wanting to make appointments with every doctor. Emergency rooms jammed with people with bumps, scrapes, hallucinations, etc., etc., etc. An epidemic of hypochondria coast-to-coast. Every time the U.N. starts one of their flu scares, ten million Americans jam emergency rooms demanding to be inspected and tested for flu. An avalanche of complaints about rude behavior, sexual harassment, racial or disability discrimination.

The poll is a complete fabrication, and is intended to push Romney into an early lead for the Republican nomination for 2012. This is totally a Democrat operation.

"key swing state"

THE fact that FLA is a November swing state is irrelevant to the primary season ... the key states still appear to be:

IOWA
N HAMPSHIRE
S CAROLINA
FLORIDA

He will be toughest to stop in NH and FLA. The flaw of this poll is that someone else could likely defeat MITTSTER in FLA, but PALIN and HUCK are not strong there.
