69% See Palin as Good VP Pick
Conservative HQ ^ | May 3, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 05/04/2012 2:04:50 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

She is the 12th in a series of possible Veep picks graded by CHQ Poll respondents.

We asked you: “If Mitt Romney becomes the Republican nominee, who would be his best choice as vice presidential running mate?

And we explained: “Each day we will offer you a different choice, and ask for your reaction. We are not asking you to vote for the best candidate. We are asking you to give your evaluation of each candidate. In this way we will see who is acceptable, and who is not acceptable, to conservatives and Tea Partiers.”

Here is how you responded on Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska:

69% Favorable. Would make me more likely to work and vote for the Republican ticket.

16% Unfavorable. Would make me less likely to work and vote for the Republican ticket.

13% Neutral. Would not change my likelihood of working and voting for the Republican ticket.

2% Undecided.

Picking Sarah as his VP is the ONLY thing that would make me enthusiastic about supporting the GOP ticket. Without her, it’s a case of holding my nose, blinking back the tears, pulling the lever — and then going home to eat a three-day-dead toad to get the taste out of my mouth.

I’m doubtful that I would vote (r) even if she were on the ticket... and I voted for her in 2008. As long as we feed the elitist beast it will continue to screw up our country. They are only marginally less evil than the left.

The lesser of two evils is still evil.

I’m voting Goode unless he is not on the ballot in my state...otherwise; I will write in Palin.

Ditto. The ONLY thing that would make me consider voting for him.

Sarah in the only choice, the best choice, and what passion she could bring to Romney the passionless cannot be understated

I’m not sure I could support a Romney/Palin ticket...she shouldn’t be getting involved with someone like that...

I voted for Palin in 2008 (McCain was just an irrelevant appendage on the ticket)—would love to do it again...

...especially if Mitt would promise to resign after Inauguration Day.

Agree .... She wants validity she needs to evade such as McRommney.

Guilt by association per se.

Voting for Mitt is like putting more crap in a over flowing toilet to fix it.

My opinion..... Stay safe !

The only thing Governor Sarah Palin did was beat Democrats and “Frick & Frack” Republicans, get on the city council, become Mayor, chair an energy commission, become Governor and run for Vice President, raise her family, not abort her child, share earnings responsibility with her Husband, start a small business, and stick by her pregnant daughter. I can see how she would be a bad example for the woman’s liberation movement, the establishment, Demoocrat & Republican elites, abortion for children without notifying parents and others who want us to buy oil from the Middle East and hate Israel.

Had a thought...

Mitt will pick Sarah because he HAS to (whether she accepts or not is anybodies guess)!

If she isn't Veep, she would be the leading conservative contender to primary his ass out of office in 2016.

‘Keep your enemies closer.” right?

.

Willard will "never" select Sarah Palin as VP ...

The evidence points to "Mitt's People" as starting the vicious "GOP Insider Attacks" against Sarah back in 2008 ...



Fortunately ... this is all academic ...

Newt and Sarah will be the GOP 2012 nominees

Go search my posts for "The Plan" ... or else I can e-mail it to you ...

It's real. It works. It's the future.

“As long as we feed the elitist beast it will continue to screw up our country.”

And you think not voting is going to change the “elitist beast”.

Wanna buy a bridge?

I still have that *taste* from Dole in ‘96 and McLame in ‘08, but it must be AB0 in 2012 - anyone but 0bummer!

Is that 69 percent of registered voters, 69 percent of likely voters, 69 percent of Republican primary voters or 69 percent of people who post at Conservative HQ?

It seems to me you’re the one ‘buying’ ...

- and I didn’t say I wasn’t voting, I said “I’m doubtful that I would vote (r) even if ...” (FWIW, the “(r)” is intended to indicate the elitist republican party and the lack of esteem with which I regard it).

I’m done with being led to slaughter by judas goats.

There will be an election whether you vote or not. There will be a President elected in November. It will be one of two people. A failure to vote or for a third party is the same as a vote for Obama.

You can’t change the system by not voting. You can only change it from within the system. Its too late for this round, we need to get conservatives into the GOP.
