As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Palin Outpolls Bachmann in New Survey

Sarah Palin fares better that Michele Bachmann in a new ABC/Washington Post poll, and each of the GOP women eclipse all other GOP candidates except Mitt Romney, who leads them both.

Without Palin in the race, Romney tops the field at 30 percent to Bachmann’s 16 percent, with Paul at 11 percent. Perry is at 8 percent.

Were she to run, however, and a primary or caucus were held today in their states, 18 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents would vote for Palin, second to Romney’s 26 percent. With Palin in the field, Bachmann is at 12 percent.

The poll suggests Palin could quickly become a major factor were she to suddenly jump into the race. Bachmann, while breaking out of the pack, is still mainly supported by Tea Party backers.

Romney easily beats Palin among college graduates, while Palin nips Romney when the contest is limited to those who have not made it past high school.

  1. Another WashPost poll?! Really. Are they the pollsters who gave MrO the 80% of America wants him to raise taxes poll results?
    Professional, college educated people like MrRomney and blue-collar/no-collar barely literate people like MrsPalin; that’s a clever, sneaky slam on MrsPalin and anyone who supports her.

  2. The part that just amazes me about the GOP is the way they select presidential candidates. It seems that whoever came in second for the past presidential nomination (Romney in 08) ends up being the leader of the pack the following election cycle. It’s like the powers to be in the Republican party think that everyone deserves a turn.

    McCain was a huge mistake in 08, and we are reaping the whirlwind of that election. Now it seems that it’s Romney’s turn, and I really don’t see him taking on Obama and winning. The man has too much baggage from Mass. and the DNC and Obama will use it to pound away at him.

    Not everyone deserves a trophy, if you lost you lost. Unless you have improved your game, and I really haven’t heard anything from Romney that shows he’s improved his game, just repackaged it, I can’t see him winning.

    The only way to beat Obama is to go after his core beliefs and policies, and to take the gloves off totally. Something McCain would not do. Running for political office is not a job for the faint of heart, and in today’s economic crisis, military crisis (three wars on two continents) and the general malaise that is settling over the country we need a leader, not a politician, to make a run for the WH.

    I know, I know if we go after Obama on his policies, then the race card will be played to “N”th degree. But there is a way around that. Go directly to minority groups and point out that they are the ones suffering the most under this administration. Point out the facts that things like abortion are targeted at minority groups, schools are failing in the inner cities due to union power and parental disenfranchisement. Point out that unemployment in the minority community has gotten worse under Obama. And finally point out that the people who are most donating to the “O” are rich white guys.

    Turn the race card against Obama, and make it so that he and the DNC have to defend their record on how they treat minorities. How, due to their economic policies they have hurt the black community. How, due to their lack of vision they have destroyed the American dream for most people, especially minorities. How their border policy has allowed millions of illegals to take sought after jobs from Americans who desperately need them. In this economy, I would venture a guess that the “jobs Americans do not want to do” would be done by people wanting to feed their families.

    Finally, the GOP needs to realize that a vast majority of Americans are fed up with the SSDD mentality that permeates DC politics. Romney in 2012, we might as well just rehash the 2008 election. Leaders are needed, not politicians.

    • Excellent analysis Shofar. You are describing precisely how Reagan campaigned against Carter. The race card puts a new spin on things but your ideas could prove to be very valuable.

      The establishment GOP is fighting the Tea Party influence. They refuse to see the danger this country is facing. Conservatives are tired of being told by the establishment to sit down, be quiet, and accept the candidate they give us. They will have a rude awakening come 2012. Romney, Huntsman, and Pawlenty are all part of the establishment. Many Tea Party people admire Perry, but he is part of the establishment too. Like he predecessor George W. Bush, he’s a “compassionate conservative”.

    • Good post. Romney is BO’s brother from another mother. They are one and the same and the country cannot stand another 4 years from either of the brothers. Romney should be nowhere near a ballot.

  3. I have to laugh every time I see these “polls / propaganda” It’s very telling that none of them including CNN’s include Ron Paul, even though he’s won all of the straw polls….I recently took a sidebar poll / vote on FB on if Obama should get re-elected for 4 more years…. I even took a screenshot of it…93% AGAINST

  4. Breaking News!

    Sarah Palin is a spy. Everything about her is a compete fabrication.

    She was planted as McCain’s running mate to flush out those who are a part of the “New World Order.” This group consists of CEOs, wealthy elitists, and a collection of corrupt politicians with the goal of overthrowing the US government.

    Obama, much like Osama, appears to be nothing more than a spokesperson for this group. Osama Obama, Biden Bin Laden, it’s a code. The feds are trying everything to contain this from leaking out. Whether you believe this or not it is honest to God’s truth. The military is using Obama as their puppet. This is also the reason why all the CEOs who ran in the last midterm didn’t get elected.

    The majority of the media has been taken over by the feds in an effort to suppress this. Want proof? Didn’t you find it a bit odd that we caught Bin Laden 3 days after Trump, of all people, got Obama to release his birth certificate? Did you actually look at his birth certificate? After 3 or 4 days covering the death of Osama, a completely manufactured lie, the media moved onto 3 weeks of Anthony Weiner’s weener coverage. The Pentagon is not only controlling the news stories, they are also controlling the commenting. 90% of the comments you’re reading are manufactured garbage. This is what your tax dollars are paying for.

    If you want the real story about what’s going on in America then by all means read and share the following story before our democracy ceases to exist. The future of our country is in your hands. Are you going to do anything about it?

  5. The fact that Palin is still in the news let alone being considered as a presidential candidate is horrendous.
    One always hopes that the people who run for public office are better than we – this woman left office because she was about to be charged with misfeasence and is one was opening dispised by Alaskans.
    Being voted Miss Congeniality (3rd place) in a second rate beauty contest is no qualification for public office – just ask the smart people of Wassila!!!

  6. These polls are shallow , celebrity mentality , not on true issues , nor where these candidates actually stand. The Democrats want Romney , who is everyone kidding, Romney is so center, with his own Obamacare, besides with this slide in the economy , no health care is better than any health care. The entire concept of mass entitlements and super pensions , will only bring down the country quicker. Economize is the answer, everyone in the federal system is overhead. To eliminate debt, you need to eliminate overhead. If we reduce costs for the private sector, jobs will come, and if we can cut government jobs and for them to go work in the private sector, the debt spending will reverse.
    We have non capitalists who never ran a business running our check book.
    A total disaster!!

  7. Sticking her neck out confronting Obama,
    24,000 emails, and an independently made movie,
    all show that Sarah Palin is a hard working, capable, incorruptible, servant of the people.

    Palin has the truth on her side. The more that comes to light, the better for her.
    This is exactly the opposite for most of her opponents and especially Obama.
