Pro-Free Markets/Strong on Defense Giuliani best against Obama
Courtesy of our friends at Race42012.com, a new Harris interactive poll shows Romney on top of the GOP field. But Giuliani, not even a candidate, does best against Obama.
Harris Interactive Republican Primary Poll
General Election Matchups
Editor's comments - Of course, the always vocal Ron Paul people despise the anti-Islamist/pro-Israel hawk Giuliani. It'll be interesting to see their reaction to these numbers. Also a surprise. Palin does rather well in this poll. Giuliani/Palin?
Rootie is a liberal and the Huckster isn’t running.
Did they poll NY City “Republicans” for this joke?
There was no “unsure” so lack of name recognition basically meant “Obama” as an answer or “Not Obama” as an answer...hence him doing so well against Cain, for example.
Giuliai beating him was weird...he hasn’t made any serious noise has he?
That’s one crappy poll. Too many people who aren’t running.
Julie-Annie is anti-Second Amendment.
These bull$hi+ internet blog polls are a waste time and conducted by incompetents.
Obama 51% Romney 49%
Is that for the democRAT nomination?
Giuliai is the LSMs latest hot candidate du jour. Like their others, he will be just so much cold gruel in a few days.
It says it was a Harris poll.
JimRob cleaned house...it took months for some to get over it..
Oh, Lawd, please..not again
“Also a surprise. Palin does rather well in this poll.”
No one dimwitted enough to be surprised by that should be writing for public consumption.
Sorry, no gun-grabbing baby-killers need apply.
Palin is at the top of the ticket. Can’t think who should be second banana. It should be someone even more conservative and ballsy than Palin, so the demonrats won’t have an incentive to assassinate her.
The abortionist/gay rights pushing Rudy Giuliani is unwelcome on FR. If you wish to push his candidacy, please remove your self from FR first.
There will be NO campaign for Rudy (or any other abortionist) on FR!! That’s a guarantee you can take to the bank!!
You may very well be right; I don't know. What I DO know, however, is that priority #1 is to DEFEAT THE EVIL WANNA-BE DICTATOR in the White House with the heaviest-duty electoral firepower we can muster (the most conservative one who CAN WIN). I did not start this thread because I'm a Giuliani lover. I'm a freedom lover. I'll take my time and watch and see...
Not with Rudy. Keep pushing that abortionist bastard you get the ZOT!
I’m hurt. I posted post #15 BEFORE I saw your post #14.
You may want to read this thread:
Got it. I accept your admonition and promise never to post anything that emphasizes Rudy again.
You’re quite welcome. Best wishes.
The poll serves to push the idea that only RINOs can compete against Obama. We saw in 2008 what happens when RINOs go up against Obama.
I’m surprised there are that many members of the Sheeple who even remember who Giuliani is.
Polls are designed to influence not inform. If they plan to steal an election all they have to do, is have many polls showing the results they planned for. Bingo their poll was right on the money.
FR has never gotten over the purge. Traffic collapsed after that. And the result was McCain.
No it says it is an interactive poll, which means it is BS, anyone can vote as many times as they wish.
One of the comments at the original article:
It’s odd that you’d compare Trump to Giuliani. I did so the other day myself.
They’re peas in a pod — corrupt and incompetent government careerists whose only selling point is their ability to self-promote.
The only real differences are that Giuliani opted for direct government employment rather than the corporate welfare queen route, and that his incompetence and corruption therefore has probably cost more in American lives than Trump’s has.
When Giuliani came in as mayor, one of the top recommendations in the wake of the 1993 WTC attack was to get the police and fire departments on the same comm gear. The gear was available, but the bribery process ran so slowly that it hadn’t been purchased by 9/11/01, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of NYPD officers who didn’t get the word to clear the buildings.
Also in response to the 1993 WTC attack, it was determined that New York needed an emergency response HQ. The experts recommended siting it in Brooklyn. Giuliani thought it was smarter to put it under the World Trade Center, which resulted in he and other city functionaries spending three hours trying to crawl out of the wreckage instead of being available to coordinate the response.
Then he turned down $10 million in 9/11 relief funding because the guy who offered it had made a common-sense observation as to the circumstances which brought 9/11 about.
And afterward? Giuliani avoids public appearances in NYC to this day, because whenever he makes them, the post-9/11 cleanup workers he fucked over and exposed to lung damage by lying about the air quality and refusing respirators, etc. — those who remain alive, anyway — show up to tell everyone what a rotten son of a bitch he is.
When he gets on the national stage, if his greasy medicine show carnival routine isn’t enough to turn people off, his opponents can always bring up the fact that his closest associate is in jail for corruption in the office Giuliani appointed him to, and that since leaving the mayor’s office, Giuliani has chosen to work as a lobbyist for such savory characters as Hugo Chavez.
He’s about as likely to win the GOP nomination, let alone the presidency, as Jacobite pretender Francis II is to move into Buckingham Palace.
Thanks, I didn’t know that. That must be why Giuliani won.
>>>Palin is at the top of the ticket. Cant think who should be second banana. It should be someone even more conservative and ballsy than Palin, so the demonrats wont have an incentive to assassinate her.<<<
Or, conversely, Palin-Cain, although the sad news is that some people might think it’s the same guy who ran in 2008.
Palin-Murray. Just to see the heads explode over at NPR, like Nomad in that old “Star Trek” episode over the cognitive dissonance of smearing a woman and a dark-skinned minority. This one might be the best, actually, although the more I keep hearing Michele Backmann, the more she impresses me. You should see her biography - it’s pretty solid. However, presidential tickets are often about balancing politics, and Murray brings in the South.
Hell, Bachmann-Murray sounds good, too.
As long as I don’t have to vote for another RINO. The last time it took several weeks to get the stink out of my conscience.
