POLL: Do You Consider Sarah Palin to Be a Serious Presidential Contender?
foxnewsinsider.com ^

Posted on 06/07/2011 5:12:11 AM PDT by stompk

Yes - if she runs, she'd have the same chance as any of the other GOP front-runners to win the nomination.

No - regardless of whether she runs or not, there are stronger Republican candidates.

Still haven't made up my mind.

(sorry I think my response was not clear)

The poll question seems to presume the best Palin could score, is to be just equal to the other candidates.

Frankly that is absurd.

Right!

She is fine and I don't get why Conservatives are demanding some kind of flawless, larger-than-life, saint from the skies to run against a bounder like “O”.

If half of America voted on auto-pilot last time to get “O” into the WH, why do Conservatives DEMAND strict adherence to ‘cast in stone’ principles or 100% compliance with some dated, irrelevant and tedious formula for candidate perfection?

Are Conservatives making a CONSCIOUS EFFORT to get their chances kicked to the curb

“Ilike Sarah ,personally, but I’d rather have Jim DeMint!”

I was a DeMint supporter until he voted in favor of Harry Reid’s extension of the Patriot Act. We need to get solidly behind any candidate that is a 100% Constitution supporting Conservative. Anyone who votes to give away our 4th amendment rights is not conservative enough for me(which includes almost all of the “Tea Party” endorsed representatives including my Congress Critter Tim Scott (SC-R) that voted for the Patriot Act).

Agree, DeMint is the best of the best.

Palin is going to have to win over a lot of people that thinks she is an idiot over time. She has the talent to do it, but it will take time. Not sure she can wait much longer than Labor Day to jump in. SHe needs to get her negatives down and the MSM is going to make that process as difficult as possible.

Many on the left probably consider her a serious candidate or they would not keep attacking her. Perhaps it is a preventive move. Bill O'Reilly pointed out that Brian Williams said at one point that he would not cover the Weiner scandal because it is not an important story. Yet he went after a minor comment by Palin regarding Revere.

There are also others who unfairly target her. Jay Leno goes way over the line. It not just I but a few other posters already last year noted his obsession with her. Whenever I have watched Leno he has mocked Pail. Last night he spent more time on her than Weiner. His obsession with her is creepy. He is like a rejected guy who turned stalker. he definitely has mental issues regarding Palin.

No, not kidding. It’s just my opinion, but if there is some major reason why a ticket like that wouldn’t work, I’m open to suggestions. I am firm on one choice though, and that is that the nominee should not be Romney.

Every poll the last couple of weeks has had her in 2nd place behind Romney (despite not announcing even an exploratory) far ahead of people like Pawlenty.

Yet FOX news asks if she’s credible. What a joke they have become. Someone up top has it in for Sarah.

Thank you for voting!

Yes - if she runs, she'd have the same chance as any of the other GOP front-runners to win the nomination. 67.94%

No - regardless of whether she runs or not, there are stronger Republican candidates. 26.8%

Still haven't made up my mind. 5.27%

Yup.

Palin is getting the Duncan Hunter treatment.

Except she’s well known, popular, naturally creates enthusiasm everywhere she goes - and far more effective at spinning it right back on them. Hope Guv Palin includes Congressman Hunter in her cabinet.

... The Undefeated, as if anticipating this, opens with clips of a lot of Hollywood nuts and other lefts bashing Palin. Many do so merely because she breathes. In some parts of the world, nothing Palin can say or do will win her praise. The film makes that clear.

One of the most surprising aspects of the film is repeatedly highlighting how Palin transcended party while in Alaska. She frequently worked across the aisle with lots of Democrats, a number of whom still sing her praises today before entering the Witness Protection Program for doing so.

Quite easy. First, those who come to Fox News’ site are biased because she is a Fox “contributor.” Second, the poll is being done too early in the day. Those not voting for Governor Palin, are not usually very active until the afternoon and evening hours! LOL

Silly answers, IMO. I personally, think she’d have a better chance than any of the other GOP front-runners, considering the “front-runners” are RINOS that NO ONE in REAL America wants.

To me, one of the biggest concerns for the next President is appointments to the Supreme Court.

Chris Christy appointed a sharia law sympathic judge. That’s a deal breaker for me.

Ryan, ok, but zero experience. For me Romney is a NO.

I think Palin and Cain are the most conservative. Bachmann is crazy. I like John Boulton, but I need to know more about his views on issues.

They have been throwing every piece of garbage they could dig up or fabricate against Palin and she’s still standing. They even flat out made up quotes at Politico and ran them until they were forced to retract. No other candidate in decades has withstood this level of abuse. Nor will any other candidate be able to if they knock Palin out and turn the fire on them.
