Gallup Shock: 'Republican' Tops Obama by 8%
Gallup/Drudge ^ | 7/14/11 | J. Jones

Margin marks first statistically significant lead among registered voters

by Jeffrey M. Jones

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters by a significant margin now say they are more likely to vote for the "Republican Party's candidate for president" than for President Barack Obama in the 2012 election, 47% to 39%. Preferences had been fairly evenly divided this year in this test of Obama's re-election prospects.

Dick Morris says that most undecideds end up voting for the challenger. That puts the score at around Republican 60% and Hussein at 40%.


Morris further explains, “If someone asks you if you will be marreid to your current spouse this time next year and you say, ‘Well, I’m not sure,’ it probably means the two of you aren’t gonna make it.” Say what you want about Morris, that’s damn funny and chock full of native wisdom.

My brother is high up in the Marines and I share crazydad’s pessimism. As patriotic and wonderful as my brother is, and all of his friends, they *would* obey orders. At least, that is what he has told me.

Based on what has happened and is happening in Arizona with the SWAT teams and other cops (yes, I know they’re not currently military), I have little to no faith left either.

UP is Down and Down is up.


Actually its: The liberals call evil good and good evil.
(not like the liberals who “create” there god to who THEY want him/her to be. “And they created GOD in THEIR image.”

The good news is the one true God is on our side. He is not pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage,... He never changes and loves all mankind. He will also forgive a repentant heart no matter what they have done. But, those who choose to be their own god will answer to Him. The bible says woe to those who causes one of my little ones to sin. It would be better for them to have a millstone tied around there neck and dropped into the sea. The people who want to force our little ones to be taught being gay is good/abortion is ok/moral relativism..... they are in BIG trouble. Anyway, bottom line, we win.

"We have to trust God."

Agree.

But you have to realize we are up against the Devil himself.

Has there ever been a more evil President? In 2 1/2 years he has almost ruined this country. Yet his ratings are not bad. You go figure.

“Registered voters” typically lean democrat due to massive democratic voter drives. It’s the likely voters that Republicans have always had to win big enough with as to overwrite whatever oddball unlikely voter happens to do.

The election is likely to go our way if we can just keep a conservative on the ballot spouting conservative free market, tiny goverment ideas.

RINO’s will lose this cause democrats can always out Big goverment a republican. For Good reason, a RINO tends to not only have the leftist intrusive Government policy’s of a democrat they tend to have the compedents to carry it out more effectively. So even the sudo black market suffers.

“The good news is that a significant percentage of those tax-consumers do not vote. What we must do is to ensure that illegal aliens don’t take their place at the polls.”

Yet anther one of the reasons our State Governments are and must be our Highest priority. They are the ones with the real practical say on theses matters.

“Generic polls are completely irrelevant.

Democrats practice the art of personal destruction. They do not run against “generic republicans”. They run against specific people who they try to destroy personally in order to win.

This is nice and may make you feel good to read but it’s not worth anything.”

This is truly largely as a result of their bases own internal weaknesses, and their strength in the media.

Whom would you vote for if the election were held today?

A. Barack Obama. 36%

B. Anyone not a convicted felon. 64%

If you chose B above, would it matter if choice B were not actually human, like perhaps a dog or a cat?

A. No. 98%

B. Yes . 2%

(I’m just venting.... ) I would like to think so also, but no one stepped up against the TSA, just to use one example. Radiation, groping, and lost dignity are commonplace now. “They’ve” conditioned too many to obey anyone in uniform....
I never thought I’d see it get this far in a supposedly “free” country.

And unless the nameless Republican in this poll immediately abolishes TSA and CommieCare, first day in office, it will just get worse!

This is what I keep saying. The whites who voted Obama because they felt “it was about time” for a black President will not re-elect him because he had his chance.

He’s also lost every independent, as well as the centrist Dems who lost either a job, a 401k, savings, or home value.

All he’s got are the most foolish of blacks, and the liberals.

Thank you. It is a scary time in the good ole USA. Will we wake up tomorrow and have the military or local law enforcement going house to house. Like they did in Katrina. It happened then it could happen now. But there will be alot of dead american patriots. Cause thousands of us will not give up our guns. Our god given right could be gone in the flash of a barrel.

Your right, we are up against evil & so much of our society is so lost. So many churches are not teaching God's word. Many ministers, priest...don't care what God says in His word. They try to make God into who they want him to be, so they worship a false god.

TV/Movies/music has really corrupted our kids. So many people are blind to right and wrong. We live in an age where evil is called good and good evil.

We see so many things happening around the world that it can be scary. The good news is that God is waking His people up. He told us he would warn us and we would know by the signs of the times what is happening.

That is why I worry about my loved ones who are not right with God. It's not like God expects us to be perfect. He knows we're the opposite, but when we come to Him with a truly contrite heart and make a decision to trust Him, we find peace with God. It seems the gospel has been told so much, people don't really hear it. My son's grew up hearing it & think they can have fun & later, get right with God. They don't understand that there hearts might get hardened & they won't care about god. (or they become liberals) That really isn't funny, but I do think many people have cold and hard hearts because they have rejected God so many times. How can anyone think abortion up to 9 months is ok. They don't have pity on that poor baby or think about who that child might be one day. The good news is I do know lots of women who had abortions and were very liberal, but they turned to God and are forgiven (and conservative).

We just have to pray right now. Our leaders really need prayer to stand strong for what is right. I remember Dr Dobson of Focus on Family staying that when he was in DC there was a feeling of evil all around him.

He is a paragraph of my prayer from yesterday.

We know You are with us and we will win. You are a holy God of truth, righteousness, peace, mercy, forgiveness, love, joy. You are faithful and just and have had Your hand on this nation since it's beginnings. The left has managed to push You out of many places, but You remains in places they can't touch. Our hearts.

>>...voters by a significant margin now say they are more likely to vote for the “Republican Party’s candidate for president” than for President Barack Obama in the 2012 election...

I wonder how long before those same organizations ask:

Would you vote for the “Republican Party’s candidate for president or for Hillary Clinton”

No wait, never mind, the Chicago thugs have probably already threatened to annihilate any pollster who asks THAT question!

Actually, if Zero’s numbers get too bad, I would expect a national ‘emergency’ would occur, FEMA to take over, and postpone the election until Zero says so.

I don’t see that happening in Conservative States, leftist States maybe. But not Conservative States & counties. In any case while we are on the subject we do need to take a serous look at our tactical situation as a population.

Our military and police have too much of an arms and organizational advantage over us. The military resources of the United States need to be decentralized more. More personal and equipment needs to be shifted away from the Federal army and air-force and to the State and Local Militia(guard) units.

Furthermore the States need to be more aggressive in selecting State loyal officers in their respective Guard units.

I can’t say this enough, this stuff is critical if things ever go to hell in a hand-basket we will need theses organizational systems to save us.

Big deal...an unnamed candidate with unknown qualifications can be built up in the mind to be anyone. Unnamed candidates always outperform incumbents in the polls. Find someone wearing skin, and the dynamic usually reverses.

I agree with your comments.

The issue is that the public would be tearing into a Republican President with Obama’s record, but it isn't happening. The power of the Liberal Media cannot be denied, even in the age of the Internet and Fox News.

We would be very naive to think that most people see what we see. I spend a lot of time outside the wire talking to people who aren't as invested in Politics as the average FReeper.

People are still tuning in to Network News and reading Newspapers full of NYT and AP articles. They scoff at criticisms of Obama with the “Politicians are all like that” argument. They do not see Obama as a Radical like we do. I can't believe it when they tell me these things, but they do. When I try to show them the truth of the situation, they are either disinterested or they think my views regarding Obama are Radical. They just don't see it...

We still have 16 months to change the course, but people aren't waiting in line for gasoline like in the Carter days.

All I can do is hope that these same people have an epiphany, but I'm not holding my breath.

This is a most interesting poll and very telling this early in the campaign.

The pundits hasten to add the fact that when put up against a specifically named Pub candidate Obamer does much better.

The Dems got the spokesnoids out fighting back against this very revealing, and truthful...as I see it...poll. Van Hollen suckup from Merryland on Fox and Friends this morning pooh poohing...you know they’re scared when they’re getting them up early like this.

anyway, the specific pub candidate comes in not as well as the generic right now because the primaries are just beginning for God’s sakes. Lots of folks not ready to settle on one Pub contender but these same folks know that come hell or high water....they’ll eventually go for ABO.

Anybody But Obama.

Heh.

It probably is more than 8%. They just played with the numbers to not scare the dims that this is as bad as it really is. They have to know that Obama is in trouble. This nation cannot continue as it is. If this country reelects this idiot, then America deserves to go down. We deserve it because we are too stupid to see it. It is just simply hard for me to believe that Americans agree with this crap. I think that everyone wanted to wash away the old racists stuff, elect the slick black dude, and show that we are all black friendly, yada yada yada, and now you see what you get when you vote for a party, a color, something other than the QUALIFIED person!!!

My worst fear is that we will get a candidate that will be milk toast and will be terrified of being called a racist.

bachman is getting the homophobic treatment right now.

Frankly, any candidate needs to drill on the truth. He/She will be called negative, mean, and dirty campaigner. To bad, that candidate needs to tell people. I do not believe the American people are Children. The American people can take the TRUTH.
Zero will lied like Casey Anthony. It will be up to Repubs to make sure he doesn’t get by with it.

-——Expect them to double down on the hate index.-——

We need to produce a video, that is , us here at Free Republic. The video will answer to the Rat piece where Gran’ma is dumped off the cliff. In the old days, full page ads in the Washington Times were created here little by little graphic element by element word by word.

Here’s the story board....

A blonde white kid, 4 or 5 is sitting at a small table, a kid’s table, coloring. On the table corner is a fat pink piggy bank. In his lab is a dog eared teddy bear.

He looks up from the coloring to see a tall man in a dark blue suit, a black man with close cropped graying hair and big floppy ears, enters, back to camera. The kid smiles until the man produces a baseball bat and smashes the piggy bank. He swipes all the money off the table into a dirty cloth sack.

The kid starts whining and the man gives him a double smack once with his palm side and the backside on the return.

Now crying full bore and wiping his red whelted face the kid struggles to keep hold of the teddy bear that is snatched from his grasp.

Teddy bear in one hand, money sack in the other, the tall big earred black man exits.

There needs to be a harsh voice over “The president is stealing the future of your kids and grand kids. “
