Skip to comments.Poll shows Palin not the clear Tea Party favorite

She's appeared at Tea Party rallies across the country and long been considered the movement's de facto leader, but a new CNN poll out Friday suggests Sarah Palin isn't the group's clear favorite for the White House.

Wishful thinkingt makes for poor political strategy.
CNN Poll = Big Time BS.
I would love to know who they polled in this. Mitt and Newt don't even hit the radar of the average citizen, they are beltway choices. I've been to dozens of tea party rallies and have seen scant mention of either of these two. On Conservative sites from here to Campaign for Liberty (Libertarian leaning) to some of the more religious sites, to 2nd amendment group's sites, there is little love for these two, at that, little attention given at all.
There’s something clearly fishy about this article. I go to a lot of Tea Party events and agree that Palin is not a unanimous choice but I never hear Romney and Gingrich mentioned except disparagingly.
Blatant lies. No way in hell Romney and Newt are the Tea Party favs. Once again we see the LSM hijacking a conservative movement and pushing RINOS.
Is there ANYBODY left who still believes CNN?
I put more credence in Baghdad Bob...
wow...they sampled more repubs than RATs
CNN poll out Friday suggests Sarah Palin isn't the group's clear favorite for the White House.Gee, could it be because she's not running?
Who's the dunce in this picture?
It will be Romney or Palin.
Fairly easy choice for a conservative lol.
Oh how they want to shape public opinion. They are praying for another John McLame to run and endorse their candidate at the same time. It’s good to see they are off to an early start this time. They almost let the Maverick slip away early in the race in 08. It was so much work to weed out the qualified candidates.
I had know idea she was the leader of the movement
I don’t really care anymore what CNN says..... but that is just me!!!
the day is quiet
shocking gun fire alerts us
its only popcorn
Never! Some things are understood without saying.
Hang on, I am looking at the actual results linked, and CNN is not representing the results correctly. Newt didn’t come in 2nd with 19%, in the most recent poll, he came in third with 15%, Palin came in 2nd with 18% (Romney still leading with 21%)
Page 2 here.
Remind me again about how many TEA party gatherings that Mitt and Newt have attended.
Not too many folks around this forum put too much stock in a poll that has Mitt @ #1 and Newt @ #2.
Good effort on your part, though. LOL
Romney is left of RINO status. He is who the MSM wants the Republicans to nominate. It’s sort of like when the MSM was saying that Guilliani was the “clear favorite” for the Republican nomination before the 2008 elections, ignoring Fred Thomas who was ahead of him in every poll.
I doubt Romney is a tea party favorite. Palin may have close ties with some, but her ties with McShame will hurt her with many TP’ers.
See #15- the actual survey results don’t match CNN’s reporting.
Too bad some people still read headlines and trust the MSM instead of digging into the story deeper than the first few lines.
