I probably did this wrong but here goes: This is polling data only for the USA Today/Gallup poll, all taken after the last debate. Perry is up from 17 to 31. Romney is exactly the same at 24 from last month. Paul is...who cares...and Bachmann fell 2 points to 5 (no shocker there). Everyone else lost a point or two. Of course the USA Today people are trying to spin it as negative, but what it really says is the only person to gain is Perry. Everyone else stayed the same or slipped. Good day to be Perry. This and the abortion clinic closings in Texas -- WOO HOO!!!!!

Remember, boys and girls: formatting is your friend.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Leaving.....no nominee? Wishful thinking. Anyway, the others on the stage have no chance--Newt, Bachmann, Cain, Santorum, Paul. Did I forget anyone? Huntsman. McCotter.

It's a two man race, and right now, Perry will win that race. That's why there is a lot of talk among establishment types to find someone else to enter--because Romney can't beat Perry.

We’re not looking at the yellow line. That’s the average. We’re looking at the latest POLL. Palin isn’t on it. She polls zero.

Palin wasn't in this poll, you are showing the RCP average. Interestingly enough, Sarah's average hasn't changed since the beginning of July. It appears that she has a floor of about 10% support, and a ceiling of about 15% support.

okey dokey.
So this is average of ALL the current polls, some of which don’t include her, and you ignore the fact that her numbers are fairly decent in those which do, yet you still think she wouldd poll no better if she were to announce? Serious question.

More interesting poll numbers today too.

The only notable conern is that Mitt Romney rose in one area - the most electable. However, even in that area, Perry maintained his front runner slot.

From: http://reddogreport.com/2011/09/rick-perry-the-top-choice-among-conservatives/

Rick Perry the Top Choice Among Conservatives
Monday, September 19, 2011

(Excerpt)

For the second month in a row Rick Perry leads the Daily Caller/ConservativeHome poll.

(snip)

Among active conservative voters, Rick Perry is still looking strong one week after his widely-panned debate performance. Mitt Romney has seen a significant boost, while Michele Bachmann’s attacks on Perry in the debate didn’t do much to slow her downward slide.

In the latest Daily Caller-ConservativeHome poll, which was fielded September 13-16, 2011, Perry’s numbers on electability held fairly constant from August and kept him atop the field, but it was Romney who arguably had the best month.

Perry’s percentage held steady at 46%, while Romney rose from 19.8% to 34.4% since August.

First Choice for President:

Rick Perry — 35.2%
Mitt Romney — 18.7%
Michele Bachmann — 14.1%
Herman Cain — 11.8%
Newt Gingrich — 8.2%
Ron Paul — 7.4%

Most Electable:

Rick Perry — 46.8%
Mitt Romney — 34.4%
Michele Bachmann — 7.0%
Ron Paul 3.3%

As Michele Bachmann continues to lose favor with conservatives,

Businessman Herman Cain is on the rise.

Ron Paul is surprisingly unpopular with conservatives

(End of Excerpt)

There’s a poll that asks GOP voters if your candidate is not in the race who is your next choice. Paul voters Cain voters Bachmann voters etc. call say Palin.Get the picture.When she runs she wins.

Does she have a few weeks before the FL and MI primaries are closed?
Her entry may undo the ugly Mittens - Michele Bachman alliance at these debates.
Newt is right , attack the Marxist and his Media drones and stop attacking one another.
But Mittens and MB are doing exactly what the Soros media was hoping for.

When she runs she wins? She's served almost two years as governor then quit to "go rogue." That was...helpful.

Perry is undefeated in 28 years and is actually in the race. I'll take those odds.

Perry would most definitely have beaten Hutchinson without Palin. That wasn’t even close and was totally hyped by the RINOs that wanted Perry out. It was nice that Palin endorsed him. She didn’t have anything better to be doing. I felt like it did her a lot of good to be on a larger stage with Perry, as well. But if you’re thinking Palin is responsible for his re-election, think again.

In all seriousness, I couldn't care less what Palin does at this point. She really pissed me off with that little Bob and Mark (or whatever they're called) stunt. If she endorses Romney, she's finished politically, and her endorsement wouldn't help him a lick. Maybe she'll endorse Bachmann.

I assume Undefeated is a Palin movie. I wouldn't be able to sit through it.

Actually Romney and Paul are the two that have climbed from the earliest to the latest polls on that list, Perry’s two biggest leads are the next two polls tha will fall off the average.

I expect to see him backslide a little after his rockt to the top. I was just hoping after last week’s bloodbath that he wouldn’t be tied, or that Bachmann wouldn’t have come up. The media and his competitors have carpet-bombed him and didn’t manage to overtake him. They can’t keep it up forever, and Romney won’t get a free ride forever on Romneycare. Seems like great polling news to me today.

I saw this cartoon at Huffington— Post-they have haters over there, big time haters who get paid to post. This has nothing to do with Palin’s stances but, hey, knock yourself out from the person who says they would gladly support Palin if she were to win the nomination.
