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.

He, Jeb Bush, and Huck can knock themselves out in a race to the singe-digits
We don’t need that flippin RINO amnesty queen cluttering the primary.
I call it Perry/Palin 2012.
I’ll support any TRUE conservative. But I will not support all the celebrity candidates (Huckabee, & Romney), with the exception of Mrs. Palin.
"Gingrich really looking like a legit candidate if he gets in- has led in SC, TX, CA on these polls"
Not unless we want to lose.
Well, here’s a real meaningful poll.
Huck just assured us he was the poll leader and would won.
You could even call it E’specially bland’.
Looks like more preemptive candidate trashing by “specially flying monkeys”.
Yepper. And at the same time a bland attempt to pimp for newtie?
separated at birth?
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).
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).
Well, Ronlad Reagan used to be a Democrat once.
Hell, I don’t even want him for my governor.
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.
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.
That looks like a strong ticket.
