Skip to comments.PPP: Obama, Palin tied 46/46 in 2012 polling
Posted on 07/15/2010 10:38:13 AM PDT by Lou Budvis
No, this is not coming from Rasmussen or an internal GOP poll, but from the normally Democrat-sympathetic Public Policy Polling. PPP pitted Barack Obama against five potential Republican challengers for the 2012 presidential campaign, and the only one Obama beat was
Jan Brewer. Even that, PPP admitted, resulted from Brewers lack of name recognition. The headline, though, is Sarah Palins dead heat with the President:

That whole PPP poll looks suspect. Nothing nefarious, I just think that they may have gotten outlier data.
Anybody that would cast a vote for Obama again is just what Rahm Emanuel said they are.
The amazing thing is how close she is to 50% in this poll. And narrow number of undecideds.
She is in good shape if she wants to run.
Oh she can win..all this crap about how her family has drama..PLEASE what family doesn’t have drama in it. I think the Reagan family had their share of family drama, didn’t stop him from winning. PPP I don’t trust(This is the same poll that had Doug Hoffman winning by 20 points) but I do believe that she is either tied with the marxist or even beating him
The media are desperate to convince us of that, and I'm amazed at how many conservatives buy into it. I've talked to several people who say something like, "Oh, I love Sarah but she's just not electable." She's very electable, very conservative, and that's exactly why she terrifies the left so much.
I think Obama is unelectable; she is only "problematic".
Not to mention “stupid”, “ditzy”, “inexperienced”, “flighty”, and “uneducated”.
Oh, and she has a high-pitched female voice.....horrors...
I get so angry with people who repeat the MSM attacks on her.
People who are supposed to be on our side.
God Bless Sarah Palin
shes a patriot
Let’s not forget the people on this very board who do the same thing to her. “She has too much family drama” PLEASE, what family doesnt have crap going on in their lives. Sarah is VERY electable. She has my vote and if she faces off against Obama in 2012 she will win and liberals will jump off buildings so it will be win/win
Palin would be perfect as RNC chair, not president. The only problem is that there isn’t anybody else perfect for president.
“People who are supposed to be on our side.”
Or, alleged to be on our side.
There are a lot of thespian “conservatives” play-acting on this site.
They fool no one.
Well said. Even some conservatives can be fooled by the media's constant negative drum beat.
You are right. Everyone has family issues if you look deep enough. The Palin family is not perfect. But my family is not perfect.
no human being is perfect.
life goes on
While SP would not be my first choice, she’s better than the Romney, Newt, or Huck. I’d prefer Christie, Jindal, Bachmann or Ryan, but none of them are running.
Daniels make look good on paper, but the GOP has a history of losing candidates who look good on paper. Pawlenty couldn’t draw flies.
Yes exactly Eagle.
But I thought SE was agreeing with me.
During the Presidential campaign, the Left saw those thousand of energized, enthusiastic, REAL Americans camped out to see Sarah Palin WHEREVER she went, and were unable to form a solid stool for months.
PLEASE what family doesnt have drama in it.
If it’s just teens disobeying parents and being irresponsible, it’s perfectly relevant.
Obama can not win the election and the Dems know it, we have seen Bill out campaigning for opposite people than who Obama wants, Look for Hillary to resign her position after November and concentrate on her own campaign.
I used spell check in this post, you know, it does not even recognize OBAMA, why should we? hehe
She’ll be in even better shape in two years when Obama plummetts the U.S. further into malaise and she gets to bone up more on interviewing, speaking and policy.
Oh and sorry about LeBron. jk
teens are teens no matter who their mother or father is....the only thing is that some news gets out while others are able to hide it for years.....geez! Ron Reagan cause Reagan grief for many years as well as Patti Davis...the libs mocked and laughed at the Reagans because of their family issues
By 2012, Obama will be trailing Joseph Goebels, Pol Pot, Hillary, Harold Stassen and “Jo-Jo, The Dancing Circus Bear.”
She will not subject herself to that abuse. She is too smart for that.
She will allow her name to be mentioned and stay in the headlines. She will make $50,000 to $100,000 per speech, and another million or two a year as a consultant.
Her “blessing” will be a huge assist for any R candidate.
Sarah knows the only thing better than being the King, is to be the Kingmaker.
You aren’t seeing the rest of the poll.
The others beat him.
Even-steven with the President with two years to go is quite good and very surprising.
She’s doing a good job.
"She will not subject herself to that abuse. She is too smart for that."
Well she's pretty well been through the abuse gauntlet, and has more experience dealing with it than any other 10 politicians combined. She has been thoroughly vetted.
But I tend to agree with you about the "kingmaker" comment. It's just that it will be a practical decision on her part not to run, not because she fears abuse or ridicule.
Yes, Ron was a campaign liability. Patty was worse campaign liability but at least she put off her nude photo-spread till afterward. Even if she hadn't it would not have mattered decisively. Sarah has no family liabilities worse than Reagan had.
Exactly..Bristol has her issues. Sarah should just wash her hands of the whole situation. They wanna get married, fine, but he won’t be welcome in her house. I don’t think Bristol is a bad kid she just isn’t the brightest of the bunch and like other teens, she will have to learn her lesson the hard way. Reagan had his own situation with two of his kids, one smeared the family and posed for Playboy and the other one, Ron, is an idiot, and not just because he has bought into the liberal philosophy but because he behaves like a moron. Doesn’t say anything bad about Ronald Reagan, just happens, sometimes the best damn parenting in the world and you still end up with a messed up kid.
The Demoncraps can't win without 90+% of the black vote and the poverty pimps would stay home if Obumbler isn't nominated.
“...the poverty pimps would stay home if Obumbler isn’t nominated.”
What better excuse to update the plasma TV?
I think you are seriously underestimating Nobama. If we just assume he’s dead meat, our base isn’t going to turn out. He’s in trouble, yes. But his average approval rating is 47%, which is still much higher than Bush was re-elected with in 2004. I’d love to see Christie out there in the mix. I think he’s going to be the big star of the party in a few years.
I just think that if Hillary was to run, she would get the nomination this time, people are mad as heck with what happened last time at the caucus. The other Dems are not loyal, the independents are mad. Heck everyone who voted for him are made, except for his welfare and black panther followers.
Yet she may see it is the only way she can ever be president, just go for it, especially if Palin is our nominee. The two choices being a WOMAN, no more talk about are the American people ready for a Woman president. That, I believe is her strategy.
I do not want Hillary anymore than any one else, as she would be harder to beat in 2012.
I don't think any of our group will ever sit another election out because their candidate did not win the primary. If they do THEY are the ones who deserve the government WE get.
Precisely. This latest thing with Bristol getting re-engaged to her immature boyfriend has a lot of people saying "This is going to hurt Sarah Palin's chances"
But I think a lot of people, especially women, are going to think. "I went through the same thing with my daughter/niece/cousin/granddaughter" It is another "connection" with people who don't normally have anything in common with a politician.
This is great news... How does Thune do against Obuhma?
