If not Hillary Clinton, then Sarah Palin for 2016, poll shows
www.washingtontimes.com ^ | 03-31-2014 | By Cheryl K. Chumley

When it comes to women in the White House, Sarah Palin takes the cake in Americans’ eyes, a new poll found.

The Economist/YouGov poll asked participants which female candidate — other than Hillary Clinton — they’d like to see run for the high office.

Mrs. Palin won 9 percent of the vote, Breitbart reported. She was followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, at 8 percent each.

Almost two-thirds of respondents said America was more than ready to elect a woman to president.

I think Sarah would be better than most others being considered by the GOPe. But let’s not let this next presidential election turn into another affirmative action event because we just “have” to elect the first female president.

I’d love to see Ted Cruse get elected but doubt he has a chance to win the primary.

so, basically.....anyone with female genitalia and name recognition was deemed by respondents to this poll to be a candidate.

The Hillary votes will switch to Palin if she decides not to run?

How much do they have in common?

Palin beats out communist/liar Elizabeth Warren (Fauxcahontis) by only 1 point.

That is just wrong.

Considering half of this country is now on some form of entitlements...I’ll take that 1 point and run straight to the bank with it....especially if this is how the polling is before any sort of campaigning.

Although I like Sarah Palin and she’s the only one that kept McCain’s campaign alive, she has been devastated by the MSM. I would like to see her debate Hitlery though, just to show the MSM she isn’t as dumb as they make out to be.

Agreed. Cruz has no chance in the Primaries and less in the General. Much as some like him, he’ll never be the nominee much less POTUS.

Sarah (who I do not expect to run) would indeed be a wild card and VERY interesting. 9%, even if 2nd choice, doesn’t mean a whole lot, but, at a minimum, I’d like to see her run if for no other reason than to shake things up.

No. They will not switch to Palin nor vice versa.

And remember, this is only 9% ... an almost meaningless amount.

Governor Palin and Secretary Rice are far,*far* better qualified to hold the office than are the Former Twelfth Lady of Princess Liawatha.

But we must be aware that if something happens with the Former Twelfth Lady...a health issue,for example....Princess Liawatha *will* be the Rat Party nominee.

I’ll take Ted or Sarah. Ted will be Palinized too. Its up to us to fight for them, not to give in because of the media-created perception that they’re damaged goods.

A couple of my friends have pre-surrendered on Ted.

Even if he wins the primary, he is toast. America is not going to vote for another inexperienced one-term Senator. America tried that and it bit them in the butt literally. We need a big time experienced politician this time. Sorry but the Presidency is not an on the job training position.

Not denying that for a second. It's just the idiots who responded to this poll appear to have laundry-listed any woman they had heard of being in elected office.

yes--she got a whopping 9 percent... Warren and Condi both garnered 8 percent... the writer is intellectually dishonest... this poll does not say, "if not Hillary, then Palin." Elizabeth Warren, Condoleezza Rice and Sarah Palin pretty much came out even with one another...

Propaganda, period. The reason they excluded Hillary from the poll is that the vast majority of voters actually do not want Hillary Clinton for president. Otherwise, Hillary would have been included in the poll.

I love her. I admire her. I wish I were more like her. Failing that, I wish my daughter will become more like her.

That said, I would really rather see Ted Cruz as president. He is authoritative and would command international respect (or fear) immediately; a woman, no matter how admirable, would have to prove herself to the misogynists. That takes time.

It would be wonderful if President Cruz, the first Hispanic president, would appoint Governor Palin as Secretary of State. This would be immensely valuable to her formation. She has many years in which she could be president, later.

When the country as we have known it ceases to be, our grandchildren will read about how Sarah Palin might have saved the USA, except her voice wasn’t what some demanded and so they lost their last, best chance to save America.

Why is it whether a person has a vagina or a penis a reason to vote for somebody?

I have never understood this mentality.

Because of my beliefs I am not an accepted member of the gay community (they consider me a traitor) because I have in the past criticized other homosexuals for not having a world view that extends beyond their genitals.

It is the same for women as well. After 2012, when I see a single women I automatically assume they are incompetent and incapable of taking care of themselves. I also believe they are for the most part whores that care more about free birth control and slaughtering their unborn babies than they do about the economy jobs liberty and the ability they have to take care of themselves. They are not feminists as it seems the left has twisted that definition as well.

The selfish identity politics has to stop. This goes for any victim group. Stop being victims.

It’s all about power, ‘quotas’ and ‘firsts’ and the bragging rights that come with them. Once the threshold has been lowered to the point that the Left deems it probable to be profitable for them they go ‘all in’ to attain the power that comes with the particular office.

The Left gets their votes in ‘groups’: unions, minorities, women, gays, poor, uneducated and environmentalists, just to name a few.

Each group or identity will be fully exploited to keep them in the fold with whatever they want for themselves and their group.

Unions: higher minimum wages and easier collective bargaining rules, minorities: more preferential treatment, women: abortion rights and more women in office, gays: marriage rights, poor: more free stuff, enviros: more regulations restricting the use of land and private property.

The media is complicit with the agenda, whatever it is for each election and will do its utmost to be proactive towards that goal.

They have apparently decided that this coming presidential election will be about electing the ‘First Female President’. That is a huge ‘group’ to entice into the fold, 52-53 percent of the population. Many will vote for the female for the same reason that Obozo got elected, “I voted for the first (black, female, whatever) President of the US.” Those kind of voters are not just stupid, they are dangerous to this nation’s security and prosperity. Look what Obozo has done to this country in five and a half short years.

Stop being a victim is easy to say, but not easy to do. Generations of people have been trained and groomed into believing that someone else is responsible for their situation and they have a right to someone else’s wealth and hard work. You’re not gonna change that over night. Common Core, Title IX and just about every other federal program is geared to making victims, not making self reliant citizens. That’s the very last thing they want, if ever. .........

Palin stared down international oil company execs. And won.

Palin took international oil execs to court. And won.

Palin sued the W. Bush administration. And won.

So.

Palin has proven authoritative bona fides. And if there are international misogynists, let them try to tangle with Palin once. They won’t again.

Cruz is younger than Palin.

Cruz has less governing experience.

Cruz has virtually no executive experience.

All the facts point to Palin for president first, appointing Cruz to a Cabinet position. Or championing him to be Senate Majority Leader.

And yet you posit the younger man with less experience should be president first, and appoint the woman to serve on his cabinet.

Could it possibly be you who are the misogynist?
