Little Support for Perry Pres Bid
Public Policy Polling ^ | 06/28/2010 | Tom Jensen

Posted on 06/28/2010 12:30:39 PM PDT by speciallybland

Rick Perry's been mentioned in some circles as a possible future GOP Presidential candidate, but the party's voters in his own state aren't too keen on the idea. Only 14% of Texas Republicans think Perry should run for President in 2012 while 63% think he should not and 23% are unsure. That level of interest compares unfavorably to the desire of Louisiana Republicans (48%) for Bobby Jindal to make a White House bid and South Carolina Republicans (24%) for Jim DeMint to do the same.

Tested as an actual candidate Perry finishes tied for 5th at 8% with fellow Texan Ron Paul. Newt Gingrich leads the way with 23%, followed by Mike Huckabee at 18%, Sarah Palin at 17%, and Mitt Romney at 14%.

A similar poll conducted in Pennsylvania (not including Perry) finds Palin leading with 24% to 23% for Gingrich, 20% for Huckabee, 16% for Romney, and 11% for Paul.

I’ll support any TRUE conservative. But I will not support all the celebrity candidates (Huckabee, & Romney), with the exception of Mrs. Palin.

Looks like more preemptive candidate trashing by “specially flying monkeys”.

He is push polling Texas voters is what he’s doing.

He’s trying to push down Perry’s Governor race numbers (it isn’t helping White to raise his own numbers).

The “impartial” poll should also have posed the question of whether those polled support Bill White running for US Sentate in 2012 (since he has already announced his intent to run in that race as well).

How ya like:

Palin/Bachmann

Palin/Brewer

I don't see Palin running for Prez and having a strong male VP.

No more Bushes.

No more border state politicians running for president (as long as this amnesty question keeps hanging around).

I live in Texas and Perry is an opportunistic RINO. Most people have forgotten that he was a Democrat until 1982 when he saw the (R) wave sweeping the state at the time.

Correction: Rick Perry switched from Democrat to Republican in 1989 (not 1982).

Yea Reagan was a Democrat once but not by 1989.

In 84 Perry ran the MONDALE campaign in Texas against Reagan and in 88 supported Gore in the primaries! F***ing GORE!!

The good thing about Perry however is that he will support ANY position to get elected.

Perry has clearly said he’s not going to run for President. This fuss is fed by White & Thursday Dems, not anything Perry has said.

What would be wrong with running Rick Perry? He's socially and fiscally conservative. Texas is one of the few states that actually gives more than lip service to conservative principles.

And the Republican party could not be so lame-brained as to nominate the aging serial-spouse, Newt Gingrich.

2012 is shaping up to be a cakewalk for Republicans. May God keep them from shooting themselves in the foot.
