GOP Straw poll needs freeping.
Post Scripts ^ | 9/26/11 | Jack

Posted on 09/26/2011 10:31:00 AM PDT by OneVike



This poll was posted by a guy who claims to be a conservative, but when you ask him why he dislikes Palin, he repeats the same lies as the MSM. Truth is, I personally thing he is a bit Schizophrenic, and I told him so in a comment a few days ago.

He is hopping to prove me wrong by showing that no one would want Palin as the nominee. So do me a favor and shop him the power of FR.

Below is his comment to me about what he thinks of Sarah Palin.

There isn't one chance in billion that Palin could be a serious candidate for election to presidency - she is that far off the radar screen.

She's a popular spokesperson on conservative issues, but it doesn't take a lot of brains to echo what we already know and want to hear. However, she looks good saying it - but that doesn't make her presidential. I really don't want to get into her negatives, mostly because we know them, and more just recently more have surfaced and they only confirm why she's not presidential.

I suppose it's kinda fun to throw her name at the left because she irritates them so much, but is there any other good purpose - I think not.

Sarah should just keep raking in the millions on her speaking tours and maybe do a few book deals and she will have served her highest and best purpose to the conservative cause. To do more would be counterproductive and it worse, it could keep Obama in the White House 4 more years.

I did. Voted Santorum. The first vote of what I see as an eventual landslide for him in that poll.

Ping for a poll about who should be the GOP candidate for President.

This Poll needs freeping. This guy really dislikes Palin and thinks she hasn't the brains to be president.

This guy carries some weight around her in local politics. I would like nothing better then to put his moderate ass in its place.

By the way, I am taking my wife to UC Davis because she has been running high fevers since her operation. Pray that all is OK with her please.

I hate to post and run, but she needs to be there in two hours and we are 100 miles north of Sacramento, so we need to leave in a few minutes.I'll check back later when we return.

Thanks and now I need to run.

Don’t know if any Freepers have hit the poll yet but Palin and Cain are already running away with it.

May God bless your wife and heal her quickly.

I voted in the poll, for Cain. Sarah’s my second choice.

Straw polls are BS. Let’s wait until some REAL votes are counted. I think after Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina have voted we will see some direction. I think whoever wins Florida (the primary, not the straw poll) will most likely win the nomination.

FReeped. Voted for Cain. Sarah hasn’t announced she is running, so I didn’t even consider voting for her.

I can never understand why so many here continually waste their time on online polls of any origin. They are all meaningless.

Hee hee. Where is perry on that listing. The radical Perry supporters won’t like that. Of course their excuse will be that he hadn’t announced yet, but if you look at your listing quite a few had not and still not announced. lol Palin 2012.

I hope you are doing well. We are in beautiful North Carolina this week. I am loving it. The people here might be the nicest people I ever met. We went to Duke University to see the chapel....it is a pretty incredible site. They have mass every Sunday evening at 9 pm.....I think that is great because it ensures that the kids traveling back from parents homes and other places on Sunday still have the opportunity to attend Mass. Take care!!!!!!

You were Sanitorium’s one lone vote?

Palin has 345, and Cain has 154. I don’t think you can cast enough votes to get Sanitorium into double digits.

It’s early. You gotta have faith. In the next week or two, I’ll bet Santorum cuts that Palin lead in half in this poll. You’ll see. The majority of Santorum voters may be on vacation right now.

Sarah first, Cain second in a silly online poll. I would like to see what happens if Sarah stays out. If she stays out, I believe that Cain becomes the grass roots candidate for most, the fallback for many.

I do not believe that Perry / Romney is a choice at all. Cain or Rick Romney.....I choose Herman Cain.

I can clearly envision a scenario where a different candidate wins each of those first four states. Bachmann in Iowa, Romney in New Hampshire, Perry or Cain in S. Carolina and Perry or Cain in Florida.

If any one candidate takes both S. Carolina AND Florida, that could bode well for that candidate in regards to the nomination.

Voted Santorum. The first vote of what I see as an eventual landslide for him in that poll.

Well, you posted that around 12:30 PM today, and as of 5:30 PM, your guy Santorum has 4 votes to Palin's 383.

Hang in there, bud. Maybe he'll beat 'None of The Above' who has 10 votes as of now.

I know. I'm such a bandwagon rider. I really ought to have more faith in Santorum. I'm sure he'll catch fire any year now.

but the media keeps telling us she hasn’t a chance.
Meanwhile she is the ONLY candidate I’d work for if she jumps
