Skip to comments.More votes for Perry than Palin in Iowa Straw Poll
Posted on 08/13/2011 5:35:56 PM PDT by Minus_The_Bear
Rick Perry who just announced his candidacy received more votes than Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.
How much longer can Palin just drive around the country not doing much of anything and still expect to run for POTUS?
A potential candidate without the organization to even manage 100 write in votes looks really really bad.
Don’t trouble yourself.
What makes you think she’s running? Maybe she will just endorse a candidate and continue her gallivanting about America...
Welcome back Shamnesty.....
I’m not for Perry.
Relax. She’s not running.
I don’t believe so either...
Is your post ‘important’??? Please advise.....NOT.
Rick Perry will soon join the ranks of Myth, and both of them are a myth, myth republicans.
Perry, a RINO, reminds me of Hucksterbee.......
I voted in the straw poll today. I did not write-in Sarah, but I expect to vote for her in caucus and on election day.
Remember, today’s poll is a GOP fundraiser. If Sarah were to have purchased 5,000 tickets, that’s a $150,000 from her to the GOP Establishment. I don’t want her to do that. I didn’t pay for my ticket, either, and I wouldn’t financially support the Iowa GOP. I got a free ticket from a candidate.
According to many credible reports Palin has a better grassroots organization through Organize4Palin than many of the announced campaigns in Iowa but Peter Singleton, director of O4P announced that they would not push for Straw Poll votes:
“Were not pushing people at all to write in Sarah Palins name, he told me. We support the Straw Poll, and encourage everyone to attend because its a great event for the Republican Party here in Iowa. If people want to write in her name, of course we appreciate their doing so, but were not doing any push for votes in the Straw Poll, in any way. Nothingwe are not even sending an email out to our mailing list in the state encouraging people to do so. We are simply not focused on this. And there is certainly no organization that is working harder for their candidateannounced or unannouncedthan Organize4Palin is working on behalf of Governor Palin.”
But for us, since our candidate is not in the race yet, we are focusing all of our attention on the caucuses on February 6, 2012.
>How much longer can Palin just drive around the country not doing much of anything and still expect to run for POTUS? <
The 2008 Straw Poll had Romney winning, and McCain 11th...means nothing.
BTW, that’s easy for you to say. Palin will announce on her OWN time. YOU are not the one whose life will be personally destroyed by the MSM for the next 11 months IF she decides to run so chill...
Thank you for reminding some people here what it's really all about.
Answer: She can drive around the country right up to the last day the allows for filing paperwork as a candidate.
Is that a problem for you.
Were you going to vote for her? Yes or no please. Just like your posted question, I want to know. Fair is fair right?
Dude did u even see the coverage of her at the fair yesterday....lol
Sarah Palin is the conservative wing of the GOP either accept that or not but really you don’t have a choice for truth is basically ur only resort...lol

Palin tells NBC News: Bachmann win will not affect her decision to run bc “don’t think was much of a surprise” #decision2012
