PPP: Obama leads Palin by eight in South Dakota?
hotair.com ^ | 2-1-11 | Allahpundit

Posted on 02/01/2011 7:43:18 PM PST by Justaham

I’m highly skeptical — this is a state the GOP’s won in every election since 1964 — but their sample doesn’t seem obviously skewed to me. The partisan breakdown is 48R/38D/14I; the sample in the state’s 2008 exit poll on election day was 42R/36D/22I. If anything, PPP skewed too heavily towards Republicans. The ideological sample is similarly in line. For PPP, it’s 43 percent conservative, 44 percent moderate, and 13 percent liberal. In 2008 on election day, the exit poll had it 35 percent conservative, 50 percent moderate, and 15 percent liberal. Again, PPP’s numbers tilt against Obama. And their polling of hypothetical Romney/Obama and Huckabee/Obama races seems credible. Mitt leads 46/40 and Huck leads 47/41 in a state McCain won by eight points.

As a Palin supporter I’d love to see her doing better in the polls, but I don’t care. She needs to run and give Obama and the libs a heart attack. It’s going to be a longshot whoever we run against him so it may as well be on principle. Plus anything can happen, right now most people probably don’t even think she is running.

Just for the record, South Dakota gave us George McGovern and Tom D'asshole.

Not exactly the Annual Mensa Picnic up there.

She’s been Quayled. That’s why she’s tanking. Which is a good thing because she is more valuable as a barnstormer/fundraiser for candidates this coming election.

I'd have to agree. The antidote to that is to have a larger-than-life stage presence (Reagan) or to have Ivy League degrees (GWB had Yale and Harvard). Even Reagan had to wait until he was almost 70 to be elected president. My guess is that if Palin wants to become president, she'll have to spend more than the decade she has in politics. Maybe after she wrests the Senate seat away from Murkowski.

The 2012 campaign is scary. I’m not seeing anyone on the GOP side that has a real credible chance at overcoming the machine that will be 0bama’s campaign. He MUST be voted out of office to minimize the already great damage he has done to our country.

If given a second term, it will take a generation or more to undo what he would leave us with.

If you don’t think part of it is sexism on the media’s part you’re delusional. Chris Matthews and Olbermann can tell you more.

Palin Country.

This is a Pro-Palin website. They only one tanking is you and your Palin vitriol. You lose, this website is Pro-Palin in that she will be the Republican Nominee. Quit bashing her already. It's disgusting how much you bash her.

What part of this picture don't you get? Free Republic supports Sarah Palin. The lame 'quayled' line is pathetic. It's obvious Sarah Palin comes from a very educated family and is very well spoken. How are you unable to comprehend that freerepublic.com is Palin Country?

I don't think so.

At this point, polls are meaningless (remember Kerry in ‘04 and both Obama and McCain in ‘08).

Quayle was never a charismatic candidate and in contrast to Gov. Palin, wasn't clever enough to play the media.

Gov. Palin would carry the Conservative vote and would likely bring new people to the voting booth.

One thing for sure, the opposition still seems most concerned with Gov. Palin. They must have a reason.

Good luck with that. She likely won't even run.

They are meaningless, but in SD? With two candidates with equal name ID?

Once again.....early polls are historically meaningless, even if they are true (PPP is an liberal polling group btw)

These polls are keen to pre-season college basketball polls - they don’t mean anything until you play the actual game (primaries, general)

1.Guliani had a whopping 40% among a crowded field in early polls in 2007

2. Paul Tsongas was the guy in 1991, Bush Sr had a 90% approval, Clinton was in the middle of the pack

3. Reagan got so much bad news, that he was going to lose his own primary in CA, He would lose to Ted Kennedy - People wanted Gerald Ford instead of Reagan in 1980 because they bought the MSM lie that he was another Goldwater disaster - 8 months before the general elections polls had him losing to Carter by 25 points

The left has done a very good job of demonizing her and influencing the sheep/MTV crowd.
