Skip to comments.Perry the GOP frontrunner in Ga., and nationally as well (Poll results)
Posted on 08/20/2011 6:21:16 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
Via Jim Galloway, a poll of Georgia Republicans by Channel Two Action News and InsiderAdvantage:
Rick Perry: 24 percent;
Herman Cain: 15 percent;
Newt Gingrich: 9 percent;
Michele Bachmann: 8 percent;
Mitt Romney: 6 percent;
Ron Paul: 5 percent;
Jon Huntsman: 1 percent;
Undecided, 20 percent.
Its no surprise that Perrys doing well in Georgia, but the size of his lead is a little startling so soon after his entry into the race. The fact that Romney, the longtime frontrunner who has been in the race for months, draws just 6 percent here in the Peach State is a stark reminder of his problems with the partys conservative base.

ALRIGHT CAIN NUMBER TWO WITH A BULLET!!!
Why are Newt Gingrich’s and Ron Paul’s names on this poll and Rick Santorum’s name is not???
Perry is that spark of enthusiasm this field has been severely lacking.
The Press is driving his name recognition ratings through the roof, with all their “controversial” reports on Perry’s positions.
It’s going to take a lot of Democrats voting for Romney to have him win the southern primaries. Undoubtedly, he has McCain’s voter list to try to swing it, however.
Santorum is not polling above 1% it seems. Neither is Palin. Like Ames, Her “write-in’s” are falling by the wayside really fast.
They also like Perry!
If they get less than 1% they don’t show in the polls.
Problem for the MSM is, those “positions” are skyrocketing his popularity.
Interesting: Why is Bachmannn so low....and where is Santorum?
Bump of interest.
I don’t know why Bachmann isn’t more popular with Georgians but she isn’t. And I guess Santorum attracted less than 1% of the vote.
Romney is a joke.
This poll right here shows that Romney as the nominee would be a disaster.
The southern base would stay home and the black turnout could see Obama take states like GA and TX.
It also contradicts the claim that Perry is not a Conservative. So far, his positions have been courageous and very Conservative.
No wonder the average American is starting to view him as the way to fix what Obama has ruined.
It would be interesting then to know a bit more about how this poll was conducted.
It does, however, seem good for Perry. At present, he is at the top of my list too.
Everyone likes their homies. You don’t think Perry’s going to win TX? Bachmann in IA? Romney in NH?
Everyone likes their homies, everyone except Tennessee that is, they were smart enough to vote against Al Gore in 2000.
The details: 425 likely GOP presidential primary voters, conducted by automated telephone interviews on Thursday, margin of error plus or minus 5 percent. Source
Most of the folks dissing Perry are pro-Romney crony-capitalist establishment RINOs.
—> You don’t think a bunch of RINO operatives have been sent to this board to create anti-Perry threads to discourage pro-Perry cause-conservatives?
They need to be ignored.
Well, he still has a 10 year record to deal with, but that is just it, we have 10 years of him to look at and weigh the good the bad and the ugly. IMO the good weighs more than the bad and ugly, and apparently from Palin’s own words, she heartily agrees, and I trust her judgement.
She may still run against Perry for prez, but she really can’t bash him now after all that praise, and Perry won’t bash her. If Sarah runs we are going to see them compete against each other for the conservative vote by bashing bambi and his commie admin, that will be a LOT of fun.
