POLL: SARAH PALIN HAS HIGHEST FAVORABILITY RATING AMONG GOP PRIMARY VOTERS
Breitbart ^ | Wednesday January 29, 2014

Posted on 01/29/2014 8:20:02 PM PST by Bigtigermike

Though former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was not included in a Public Policy Polling survey of potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders, she was still overwhelmingly the most liked person among Republican primary voters. According to Public Policy Polling:

The best liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin who has a 70/20 favorability rating. She's followed by Huckabee at 64/18, Ryan at 58/18, Paul at 58/21, Bush at 56/18, Cruz at 45/20, and Christie at 40/38. Most of those numbers are similar to what they were a month ago but Christie's seen a substantial drop from +18 at 47/29 a month ago to his new +2 net favorability.

The left-leaning polling outfit asked Republican primary voters, "Given the choices of Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Scott Walker, who would you most like to see as the GOP candidate for President in 2016?"

Huckabee led among the group with 16% to 14% for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; 13% for Chris Christie;

If 56 percent of GOP primary voters could easily back Jebbie without hesitation, we remain forever doomed.

Huckabee? These are GOP primary voters? LOL. If that were the case, Ted Cruz would top the list.

Well if we want better than second string, I suggest we start rooting hard for Sarah. Bombard her with fanmail.

Hmmm..... And Unoffical Yet VERY Interesting Ping to Sarah's List......

Though I honestly Don't want Sarah, or Ted Cruz or any true Conservative going through the Hate Machine we call a Culture or the Putzes on our own side that they would get if they became President.

We must Build the America we want in our own Homes, IF our foundation is strong that it doesn't matter who is in the White House, we can weather any storm.

If we are not, than Not Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz or anyone will be able to save this country if WE are not a Moral and Upright people.

2016 is too far away. Palin needs to jump in NOW. A senate seat is up for grabs in Alaska this year. It is currently held by a democrat, Mark Begich.

Palin needs to get off the sidelines and file for that seat, like right now.

Don't worry; though we may love Gov. Palin, the elite will never allow her to get anywhere near the Presidency. If she was elected (which she wouldn't be, due to vote fraud), she would be assassinated before taking office.

This country is lost to the political process,l because the FedGov and most of the states no longer obey the Constitution. We need to start thinking about other avenues of fighting the FedGov than voting.

By all means cheer for the best ones to consider Washington. I believe if we get a really good set of contenders they will actually end up (ironically) coordinating without a lot of infighting, and campaigns will be positive again. Whoever does not do well will bow out and help the others.

Oh throw that mournful fiddle away. A mindset that already cedes the battle before even fighting, will not ever get victory.

Guess what, God ain’t dead, and isn’t even close to giving up America. What the test here is, will America stop giving up God. And it’s hardly a foregone conclusion that it won’t.

I live in Jersey. Do not under any circumstances elect Chris Christie to anything.If this fat ass Lou Costello look-a-like f**king RINO is our candidate for 2016, stay home. Because if he is it’s over for the GOP, conservatism and America. This fat slob gave the illegals kids in-state tuition breaks. Either this year or next it’ll be drivers licenses .

I can’t analyze the politics of that.

But one thing I’ve been seeing is that she has cold feet, a pun-ishing situation for an Alaskan... anyhow, I really feel encouragement will make a difference for her. She was looking for the thousand who had not bent the knee to Baal and if they existed they were too busy kneecapping one another to notice her.

The relationship is mutual (draw near to God and He will draw near to you). We need to can the pity parties. Exalt God again, and repent of the things that stopped us from doing so.

I have to agree with KC_Lion. Our problem in the U. S. is spiritual. The bad politics and corruption are just symptoms of the disease of the heart. We are wasting our time, energy and money if we only fight the battle on the physical front. When someone’s heart is touched by God’s love (hopefully, through God using believers to touch that heart) the sin nature begins to lose its grip on them and “then” they see the light - he changes them from the inside out - not the other way round. “For we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph. 6:12 - 22) The verses following tell us how to prepare for the battle. Sarah Palin nor anyone else will save America. I have never seen evil in our country like I see it today - and I believe worse is coming. We have forgotten our God and he has removed his hand of protection from us. I can’t help but think judgement is in store for our nation. Perhaps as it comes we will call upon him once more.

A certain proportion of evil has been permitted in.

I still believe this is a warning. It is nowhere near the chaos that could engulf America.

And it’s probably because a plurality of America is still believing Christian or Jewish.

God does not want to toss America down the tubes yet. The response, as you suggest, is up to us. It seems logical enough to call on heaven if it seems hell is biting at our heels, but we have been slow of heart and slow of mind.

And you make an excellent point, the same as mine. Let’s not fall into the paradigm of that oh, if we just had another Ronald Reagan it will all be peachy with God. No, it does take more. And it was the whole ship of fools that either elected this fool or permitted this fool to be elected, as captain.

Once that is understood, yes a groundswell of support for saner leader is perfectly good. But it’s because we want to exalt God thereby.

Palin remains tops with me. Whereas I’ve lost all respect, faith and confidence in the GOP as a Party, I’ve never remotely found Palin wanting. Probably too late for the country anyway, as it seems to be decaying into a death-spiral.

Palin’s unique mix of conservatism (anti-corruption reformer, social/values conservatism, western-state libertarianism, independent from party machinery) is the perfect remedy for the country. But at this point, America is a place that doesn’t particularly seem worthy of such leadership.

PPP is a democrat leaning group backed by Daily Kos and the SEIU. I like Palin but she doesn’t have a chance. They would love nothing more than for her to be the republican nominee.

They want to stir things for republicans. They don’t want Cruz, Walker, or Paul to be the nominee because they are our best chance of winning. I don’t believe a word they say.

As always, CONSIDER THE SOURCE ......

Oh boy, just saw this .......

The Republican Presidential Contender Everyone’s Overlooking

A clue as to who this is (and why he's "overlooked"):

....He'd be one of the few Republican governors to embrace Medicaid expansion in his home state, a sticking point for many conservatives. After unsuccessfully trying to limit collective-bargaining rights, he's smoothed over relations with unions. As a congressman, he backed the Clinton assault-weapons ban in the 1990s, even though he now believes it wasn't very effective.

Ah, but consider these headlines:
"Senator Palin holds hearings on Obama's executive orders."
"Senator Palin holds EPA officials in contempt."
"Senator Palin casts the tiebreaking vote."

It would drive the lib's crazy! And it would give Palin a springboard for 2016. I'm not saying that a "Senator Palin" is a must, but it sure would be nice.

To further add, if there’s no Palin or Cruz on the ticket in 2016, the chances of me even bothering to vote are slim to none. My lifelong habit of voting for each and every GOP name on the ballot already came to a blunt halt in 2012.
