Skip to comments.Poll: Sarah Palin tops list of women Americans want to run for president
Posted on 03/28/2014 8:56:07 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the darling of the Tea Party movement, tops a new list of women other than Hillary Clinton who Americans want to run for president.
A series of Economist/YouGov polls, wrapped up in an article released this week, found overwhelming support for women candidates and a woman president, and has Palin on top of eight women most often mentioned by voters as their top choice to run.
Because Clinton is the runaway favorite potential woman candidate in a number of polls, the Economist/YouGov poll asked this question: Other than Hillary Clinton, is their any other woman you would want to run for president either in 2016 or 2020?(continued)

Plain looks pretty good. So does Bachmann.
If Palin or Cruz run, I’m contributing the maximum amount. I may even campaign.
Eight minutes? You guys are slowing down.
I am a one man army.
Keep up these posts :)
That one doesn’t even make sense.
Send a kiss to DU, they are sure sending them to you, for your, over the top efforts.
RUN! SARA! RUN!
Wouldn’t a Palin/Cruz or Cruz/Palin ticket drive the libs absolutely batty? LOL!
As long as Jim lets this PDS crap continue, it will. And no one should be shocked when we get a Romney repeat thanks to all the hard work the PDS Freepers provide.
So you agree she decided not to run in 2012, for reasons she never shared with you and me? Good, now we’re getting somewhere. I also didn’t run. Did I “tease” you, too?
And talk about opening up the fundraising spigots...
Well, this ought to stir up the old hornet’s nest!
Good to see 2ndDivisionVet in action.
I’m looking forward to watching all the PDSers who voted for Romney tie themselves in knots over a possible Palin run.
Cuz...you know...lesser evils and all. SURELY Palin is less evil than Mr. Severe Conservative...
Coincidentally, Leland Yee thinks that she is nothing but a grifting tease as well!
And darnit, he did something about it back in 2010 by trying to stop her from speaking in California at CSU Stanislaus.
And wouldn’t ya know it, just like so many politicos who attack Palin unfairly, he turns out to be a total scumbag.
I think sickoflibs just wants a winner like Dole or McCain or Romney to run. Backbones of jelly.
Or maybe another Bush, to cement the monarchy our forefathers died for.
Same goes for here professional detractors here once you read their post histories. Funny that...
He’s a long term PDS troll. He is really the last of the old guard that managed to avoid the lightning.
Funny how many of her most vicious attackers go down in flames. Like karma or something.
Why don’t you go pound sand?
Here's a list I found by one of your club from 2011:
Clues she is running:
1. Helping to elect Tea Party candidates and conservatives in 2010. Major political coinage
2. Madison, Wisconson speech....Mr. President, GAME ON!!!
3. Sarahpac website getting an upgrade
4. O4P in 30 states (and growing...especially in early primary states)
5. Bus tour
6. The Undefeated....started out with the Palins asking filmaker Bannan (Gemeration Zero, Fire from the Heartland) for a few video shorts and he counter-offerd with a two hour documentary (under his control and money....he is a capitalist after all). The movie will be shown in the early primary states, AMC theaters, PPV, downloads and DVDs. Coincidence?? Hmmmmm. Political operatives have called The Undefeated a game changer.
7. Neary 3.2 million FB fans (and growing)
8. Highest intensity rating amongst the GOP field
9. Most loyal fan base and voting base within the GOP
10. Palin could of told the O4P people to stop, BUT SHE HASNT !!! In fact, she has been subtlely encouraging them (Pella impromptu speech). Only a sadist or ego maniac would string people along for a POTUS ride only to bail in the last minute. Is Sarah pulled that kind stunt, then shes finished...every snipe calling her a glory-hound or publicity-money-grubber would be true.
11. At the drop of a hat, she can snap her fingers and the cash would flow. Volunteers would pop out of the woodwork.
12. If she wasnt running the MSM, DNC and DC elites would ignore her and write her off as just another cheerleader like Huckabee, Buchanon or Ferraro. She would fade into the night as a trivial pursuit question.
13. Shes been hiring a staff in the subject areas of foreign policy, economics, public relations, and campaign strategy. Cheerleaders DONT DO THAT.
If the MSM actually did its homework, they would spot the CLUES that shes in it for 2012. Palin did say this if she did run, it would be unconventional.

I can only say that if people cannot see the complicity between the two parties, and cannot or will not see that we won’t last long on the path that we’re on, then I can’t do or say anything that will change their mind. We’ll have to wait until after the collapse when they finally open their eyes to it.
At that point, a Sarah Palin or a Ted Cruz might stand a chance. Until that time, the “Free Stuff” is just too powerful a narcotic for them to go “cold turkey”.
Yes, I can see that happening.
“What’s Wrong Megyn??”
I saw that segment and Megyn was upset with a stupid lib. Megyn was on Sarah’s side of the matter.
Okay, well it's three years later, she's still the NUMBER ONE endorsement you can garner in the Republican Party (primary or general election). They still write HUNDREDS of articles about her on a daily basis. More than the sitting vice president, the first lady, the House minority leader and the top potential Dem contender, combined! She has a television show, a spot on Fox News, a streaming paid show, three NYT bestsellers, is paid six figures for a half hour talk and is one of the top five most recognized female politicians in the world. Tell me more about how her "teasing" us in 2011 hurt her.
Is America stuck in an endless wash cycle?
That is Megyns’ fake ‘seriously concerned’ face. I know her that well. Megyn has a great sense of humor and natural timing. She can also be quite the Warrior who Confronts. Megyn likely doesn’t think very much of Sarah, but knows Sarah has a huge following, so for the sake of the network, she dials it back with Sarah, and allows certain ambiguities to go unanswered. I suspect she (Megyn) is the person who convinced Sarah to return to Bill O’Reily’s show after their first interview went so unpleasantly.
Roger Ailes understands Megyn very well, like a father knows his daughter. Ailes knows that Megyn needs to counterbalance her Bad Cop image with a Bad Girl image from time to time.
How else do you explain allowing her to pose provocatively in black negligee a few years back. Only a very attractive and confident woman could pull that photo session off as well as she did without losing an ounce of gravitas.
Palin is the most popular republican among GOP primary voters, that draws some heat from the rinos, the Ron Paul crowd, and the freaks who see conservatism as the enemy.
Okay, well it's three years later, she's still the NUMBER ONE......
I didn't write any of that crap. Who the hell were you responding to?
To Mr Imagination??
BTW: This thread you posted main point was that she is more unpopular than Hillary is. Are you really her supporter?
Cruz seems like the real deal to me; Palin seems to be better than most, though I have some doubts about her* — but you are very right about collusion and complicity of the two parties; it is particularly telling that there is such plentiful ammunition against current government overreach which the Republican party refuses to use: Fast & Furious, NSA domestic spying, Benghazi, IRS targeting, etc.
|IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE FAR FUTURE THERE IS ONLY GOVERNMENT.
|The Tao of Republican Orthodoxy
|The Modern Democratic Party & You
* Based mostly on her unwavering support of McCain; his own constituency censured him over
a liberal record that has been "disastrous and harmful" to the state and nation.
Look at what the MSM has done to Christy and I am NO fan of Christy
however the media were like RABID DOGS! Yet Bengazi crickets, IRS
crickets, fast and furious crickets, disaster OBAMMIECARE crickets!!!
Sara will once again be ridiculed, mocked, and destroyed our media is
despicable they are nothing but liberal lapdogs, freedom of the press what
I was responding to your post #26. You don’t happen to live in Colorado, do you?
FNC’s decision to bump Hannity up an hour and give Kelly that EST primetime time slot was brilliant.
FNC clearly took the time to groom Kelly over the years to get ready to become their star.
Palin is the top of my list no matter what the gender.
Everyone else is way south of second!
That was the clincher for me.
As far as I'm concerned, the Republicans are the review board that finds no wrongdoing to the Democrat's "No Knock Raid."
Who are YOU responding to, you keep pinging me over and over.
To all crabs.
What are PDSers?
Palin is a movement leader and the real deal, they can never let up on her, anyone who remembers the first three days of her on the national scene as we posted the attacks here at FR, can never forget them, the media was white hot with rage and venom.
It looks like Cruz will be in a similar situation as a Senator, he is authentically conservative, so the media will never let up on him.
You pinged me on this thread drone.
This is just my opinion.
I think she was gearing up for a run in 2012 - she was making all the moves and then suddenly something changed and I could see it on her face in interviews. She went from energetic and optimistic to resignation, sort of depressed. I suspected that someone or a group said something to her to convince her not to run. It would have to be a threat of pretty severe consequence because for the most part she seems fairly fearless.
But think about it - her entire family was completely slandered - even the youngest child - her parents were audited - they moved someone in next door to spy on her, major news media asked their readers to help them try to find a hint of scandal in her governor emails...and on and on. I don’t know of anyone who has gone through such an uncalled for public lynching. if it had been me I’d have disappeared into Alaska never to be heard from again in the lower 48.
I hate them for what they did to her and I think the GOPe was almost as bad as the rats.
That simple post was posted and answered long ago,
The question is, why do you keep pinging me over and over, and using a ping list?
If you really believed that idiotic rule you seem to cite that those who are criticized the most (as you claim Palin is) indicate our best heroes then you would join the Obama suicide cult.
Not to mention, or maybe to, that you keep claiming Palin should be our candidate while claiming that she is that nations biggest victim.
99% of the catcalls Obama gets are fair
