So another establishment Politico wannabe pipes up. Too many counting eggs before the chicken house is even built.

Palin should have jumped in before Perry, could have been her getting the Perry buzz...now if she jumps in she would just help nominate Romney and take votes from Perry and Bachman

I think Palin is getting more buzz than any of the candidates right now. C4P reported that 70 media credentials were issues to 32 news organizations for her speech in Iowa today.

Meh, it's a long campaign, eventually movement conservatives and Tea Party folks would settle for either Palin, Perry or Bachmann as an alternative to Romney.

Palin does poll extremely badly now, even among Republicans. I don't think she is running and haven't for months, but for whatever reason the things she is doing now seem to be making her even less desirable as a candidate to most Republicans as time passes.

Wow - the MSM working hard to prevent a Palin campaign. I'm not sure I've ever seen them so afraid. It's not like there are polls about how many would like to see Hillary not run, or Christy, or Ron Paul or even Obama for that matter. Maybe 70% would like to see Obama not run if only they were asked.

Once again polls as news indicates that the MSM is too lazy to engage in investigative journalism. Fredie and Fanny nothing to see there, Obama's social security number- yawn! - GE the billion dollar stimulus recipient and green power broker - no interest, the global warming con and Al Gore's financial interest - no story. Polls we want polls about events that have not taken place, like how many would like to see the Yankees not compete in the 2015 post season or how many would like to ban cat entrails on their pizza in San Francisco or how many would like to keep little green men from Mars from filling for earned income tax credit.

"Only 20 percent of all voters wanted Palin to run for the White House while 74 percent opposed the idea -- and the voters who wanted her staying out of the contest included a large part of her base. "

Most people don't like to be played with, even by Sarah Palin. Since she's been "running" -- will she or won't she -- for the past two years, there is absolutely no reason for her not to have declared that she is officially in the race months ago.

Sarah Palin is Fred Thompson in a skirt, just better looking, more energetic, smarter, but the same tease -- and guess who is going to be left "holding the bag", her supporters who are still waiting and will still be waiting for her to jump into the race Nov 1, 2012.

Same media that picked McCain, Dole, and other RINOs. I can’t believe such intelligent people as FREEPERS are falling for it AGAIN.

The real title should be, “Rick Perry Leads While Voters on the Sidelines Want Sarah Palin”

I suppose they want her to walk ten paces behind as well like a good little aquaw.

Or maybe ten paces ahead strewing rose petals at his cowboy boots.

Do you imagine that Rick Perry and Sarah Palin don’t know each other? If so your are completely wrong! They do!

John Fund got this EXACTLY right yesterday!
