Sarah Palin goes behind enemy lines (The Daily Politico Palin Hit Piece)
Politico ^ | 05/28/2011 | Molly Ball

Posted on 05/28/2011 12:01:25 PM PDT by Rational Thought

Among the New Hampshire electorate as a whole, Palin is viewed favorably by just 28 percent, according to a recent survey by the Democratic automated pollster Public Policy Polling.

In PPP surveys in 31 states over the last six months, just three states had smaller proportions of Palin fans, and all were in the northeast: New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. (Though the firm is partisan, its results generally track with polls by other organizations. PPP’s results were used in this analysis in the interest of consistency across different states.)

In Pennsylvania, Palin likely has pockets of support in the rural center of the state and among tea party activists, said Jim Roddey, chairman of Pittsburgh’s Allegheny County Republican Committee.

“Overall, most of us feel she could be an important force in the party, but I would hope she would not run for president,” said Roddey, who hasn’t endorsed a 2012 primary candidate. “I don’t think she has the intellectual capacity or the depth of knowledge to be president.”

Madonna, the Pennsylvania pollster, said there’s evidence that putting Palin on the ticket hurt McCain overall in Pennsylvania by turning off the suburban swing voters — particularly women — that are crucial to winning the state.

Never ask a question if you don’t already know the answer. That is why
we won’t risk a real convention since Reagan almost stole the nomination from the wonderful Gerry Ford.

Then my next question: who else in the GOP fills every venue they visit? Draws bigger crowds? Better excites the GOP base?

Fills every venue they visit? Excites the "base"?

Are you serious?

By that yardstick, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber could be touted as good Presidential candidates if it were not for the "35 years old" constitutional requirement.

Yes, Sarah Palin, just like Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga, has a very dedicated core of fans and all three of them sell out venues every single time.

Even Charlie Sheen can claim to "sell out every venue".

Charlie Sheen's Sold-Out Tour Expanding To Several More U.S. Cities

However, compared to the size of the entire population of the U.S., those Fan Clubs are relative small.

Most Americans would not go to a Lady Gaga or a Justin Beiber concert even if you gave them free tickets.

As for Sarah Palin, SIXTY FIVE PERCENT (65%) of ALL voters have stated that they would DEFINITELY NOT vote for her.

The Republican Party makes up only 29% of all American voters. Having Sarah Palin getting 100% of the vote of the "base" and 100% of the vote of everybody else that has not already said that they would DEFINITELY NOT vote for Sarah Palin still adds up to a 65% to 35% electoral bloodbath and the reelection of Barack Hussein Obama.

The GOP needs to get a conservative candidate that does not have poll numbers lower than Osama bin Ladin's corpse at the bottom of the ocean (as Sarah Palin currently has) to avoid the certainty of either a RINO President or a second term for Marxist Obama.

Are you serious? You think Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber excite the GOP base?

It is easier to argue a point, when you get to fabricate what you are responding too.

Same old, same old. We’ll find out when she runs, won’t we? Good luck with these same old BS, Politico. Palin’s going to do damage to them and precious and they know it. Couldn’t keep her out and won’t shut her up.

Now, however, with her luster dimmed and her national relevance in question, she has chosen to venture into the belly of the beast.

So much so that Politico can't help themselves from writing about her all the time.

You made my point.

Time wanted Dan Quayle to be the candidate, and their cover says so.

The last thing they want is for Palin to be the candidate.

Why would that be, Skippy?

Turn out trumps skewed polling every time, because the motivated voter is a force multiplier. Motivated voters win friends and influence people to vote with them. Fence sitters are influenced by motivated voters.

BO does not have better motivated support than Sarah has. BO’s support is bussed in and bribed. 13 states have passed laws which inhibit phony vote registration, corrupted absentee-ballot process, and multiple ballot casting. The dems are wringing their hands over it.

My question remains unanswered: if Sarah wants to run who could beat her in the GOP primary, when motivated voters are even more powerful than they are in the general?

Oh Poly, you are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts. Since the last Presidential election, there has been no poll taken that interviewed 100% of US voters, ergo, there could be no such poll wherein 65% of ALL VOTERS said they would not vote for or against any given candidate, let alone against Sarah.

You exaggerated, which is a kinder, gentler way to say, “you lied!”

This always kills me.

I’m college educated. And I support Palin! In fact, I have two degrees and am working on another.

And I’m about as independent minded as they get. Never received assistance from anyone — worked my way through school, still manage to live as independent from the government or from anyone, except WITH my husband - and we split everything 50% and make all decisions together.

What IS this crap they just seem to throw out about women?

I loathe when the liberal media purports to speak “for all women.”
