WaPo: Palin’s net favorable rating now at -13

posted at 5:40 pm on July 24, 2009 by Allahpundit

I’ll give you the sample up front to save you time. Dems 33, Reps 22, Inds 41; Libs 20, Mods 39, Cons 38. That’s actually the smallest percentage of Democrats sampled in a WaPo poll in 18 months.

The good news? She’ll have plenty of time and money now, thanks to SarahPAC, to turn the numbers around. The bad news:

The last line, obviously, is the killer. This same poll finds the current GOP field shaking out this way: Huckabee 26, Romney 21, Palin 19, which may sound like a fluke but isn’t really. As noted the last time I blogged a 2012 poll, Huck frequently fares best head to head against The One in hypothetical match-ups. If he and Palin have to battle it out for evangelicals in the primary, he’ll be sorely tempted to leverage those numbers on how she handles complex issues to accuse her of ignorance on policy — but how do you make that attack without bleeding over into self-defeating ad hominem nastiness? Run an ad charging her with ignorance and it’ll be read as charging her with stupidity, which isn’t true and the unfairness of which will make her seem sympathetic. Plus, Huck’s never been real adept at concealing his personal disdain for opponents he’s attacking. He might have to skip this area altogether, let the public come to its own conclusions, and focus instead on painting her as a RINO for supporting a path to citizenship and some sort of financial rescue while on the trail last year.

Another fun fact from the poll. Make of it what you will.

Evidence of a public preference for a Keynesian “do something, anything!” approach during a recession, or a broader signal of where America’s secret economic heart truly lies?

Oh, one more thing: 58 percent now say Sotomayor should be confirmed, a higher post-hearing number than WaPo recorded for either Roberts or Alito. Naturally, even though there’s not a thing they can do to stop her, Cornyn and Hatch declared today that they’re voting no anyway. Smart thinkin’, GOP.

Now we enter the next stage, where the attacker cannot think of his/her own words and tries in vain to repeat someone else’s words in a coherent manner.

So, in your world, the opinion that Mitt Romney is a “mutant” is somehow the “reality” that you “supplied.” Yeah, o.k.

There is no “delusion” concerning who I support, as evidenced by the latest polls which. I guess all the conservatives at CPAC who voted Mitt the frontrunner in the straw poll are “delusional” too, huh?

You obviously lack respect for any person who supports a candidate you don’t, as well as the right for such a person to express an opinion supporting that candidate. Sorry, but we live in a society that honors free speech. I will continue to express my opinion regardless of what name-calling occurs. If you think you can change people’s minds with that kind of immaturity, think again.

And ExxonMobil doesn’t really exist so the press release the company issued concerning their participation is a joke.

Ever consider changing your name to Dumb and Dumber?

bw222 on July 24, 2009 at 8:59 PM

Only one that doesn’t know what they’re talking about is you. All EXXON did was agree to provide TransCanada with some information on gas treatment plants at Prudhoe Bay for a price, nothing more. It’s in no way, shape or form a commitment for anyone to construct a pipeline. Now why don’t you try rebutting that instead of throwing around insults?

lowandslow on July 24, 2009 at 9:09 PM

You wouldn’t recognize the truth if it bit you in the butt.

bw222 on July 24, 2009 at 9:03 PM

So tell us the truth, is there any commitment from anyone to build a pipeline?

lowandslow on July 24, 2009 at 9:11 PM

She ranked low on “understands complex issues” and we also have “Oh, one more thing: 58 percent now say Sotomayor should be confirmed…”

I tend to think that most of those polled don’t understand complex issues but rather seek simple, easy “government-based solutions” to their problems.

Therefore I guess the Huckster would indeed be the frontrunner.

So tell us the truth, is there any commitment from anyone to build a pipeline?

lowandslow on July 24, 2009 at 9:11 PM

June 11, 2009, Dallas, Texas – TransCanada Corporation and ExxonMobil announced today they have reached terms on a gas pipeline development agreement. TransCanada and ExxonMobil have agreed to work together to progress the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) Gas Pipeline Project.

AGIA was created as a commercial vehicle for advancing the Alaska gas pipeline project through the first stages of development of what will be the largest private energy project in the world. …

AGIA Facts:

-Governor Palin introduced Alaskans to AGIA in January 2007, promising swift movement to get Alaska’s gas to market.
-Alaska legislators passed AGIA 58 to 1 in May 2007.
-Five entities expressed interest in applying for the AGIA license to proceed with specific commitments from the State of Alaska.
-Private-sector competition created by AGIA encouraged another pipeline project, Denali, to begin down another path to bring Alaska’s gas to market.
-Alaska legislators awarded the AGIA license to TC Alaska in August 2008.
-TransCanada pre-filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in May 2009.
-When built, the natural gas pipeline is expected to carry roughly 4 bcf/day, supplying up to 8 percent of the United States’ annual consumption.
-TransCanada is a leader in developing and operating energy infrastructure in North America.
-ExxonMobil is the largest publicly traded international oil and gas company.

Of course, when the thing’s under way, you can credit Palin’s successor. But then, I’ve heard that Alaska’s fantasy, Palin’s a fantasy…

What does any of that have to do with the statement that AGIA doesn’t require a commitment from anyone one to build a pipeline? How does your “AGIA facts” address the economic viability of the project?
The economic realities of the gas market and the tax terms from the state of Alaska to ensure fiscal certainty for the producers will determine if this gas pipeline will ever get built. That’s something Palin with her AGIA refused to address.

I heard a lot of Mitt in Iowa and liked him best. If not for Huckleberry being McItsMyTurnICrossTheIsleAndKissDemA$$ McCains wingman in the southern states the bad nightmare on elm street, McDumba$$ campaign, would have ended shortly after.

What scares the crap out of me is his religion. I know it sounds terrible and I would definitely vote for him but I heard religious conservatives saying they would not vote for a Mormon like he is some kind of freak. Scared the crap out of me.
I could not believe it and think Huckleberry encouraged it.

I voted for Mitt but now think Sarah and third party is the only way to rid D.C. of the vermin and put both corruptocrat parties on notice- No More.
No more games,
no more rigging your incumbancy so your undefeatable,
no more carreer coruptocrats playin the game to ensure their survival at the expense of the people ie. Gerrymandering, campaign finance laws.
No more multiple topic bills that no-one reads,
no more porkulus vote buying,
no more middle of the night amendments,
no more doling out taxpayer funds to buy senate or congressional votes,
no more fancy contracts to husbands and wives,
no more hiring relatives or passing seats on to them,
no more tax cheating,
no more check kiting,
no more screwing of the American people .

Run On
Term Limits congress, senate, and Judciary,
Military pay scale for congress and senate,
No lifetime pensions,
Same retirement plan as us,
Same Healthcare plan as us,
National Sales tax,
abolish the IRS the National Education assoc. and about two dozen other big gov’t depts.

Tell me we do this and no good men will apply and I will tell you we have damn few now so its worth a try.

Insanity— doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Dem, Rep,Dem,Rep,Dem, Rep, why am I getting F’d? Dem, Rep, Dem, Rep, Dem, Rep. I don’t understand why they don’t listen! Dem, Rep, Dem, Rep.

You seem to not understand how large infrastructure projects work. They take time and have a lot of parties working on them. Coordination takes time and the legal issues don’t get hashed out in a day.

Be patient. AGIA is moving along fine.

You guys just don’t get it, the project is not off the ground. It isn’t any further ahead then it was under Murkowski, he damn near had a deal with the producers in place. For this project to advance they will have to gut Palin’s AGIA because it doesn’t allow for the state to set the tax structure needed for the producers to commit to a pipeline (along with other problems in it). It was nothing more then a populist piece of legislation designed to stick it to EXXON, BP, Conaco/Phillips, etc. Under the terms of AGIA there will never be a pipeline, ever.

Diatribes attacking people who “just don’t understand that lesser-evils are less evil” didn’t work for them, and it won’t work for you. But please, enjoy your RINO candidate and your foamy attack strategy; see how far it gets you.

I’m unhinged? I’m not the one pretending she advanced a pipeline, I’m not the one pretending she governed as a fiscal conservative, I’m not the one deluding myself that her ACES legislation is something other then a windfall profit tax. The bottom line is in her short tenure in an any administrative position, she governed poorly. This is the exact some problem the GOP has had over the last ten years.
If you want to support Palin as a politician because she brings out some kind of excitement in you fine but let’s not pretend she was effective in governing.

Why can’t it me modified over time as more work is done? That’s the way projects work. There is a continuous updating of deadlines regularly so you stay on target.

If the tax laws are not conducive down the road, why can’t the parties negotiate modifications so it is a win for everybody?

I don’t see the problem. This is the way projects are. Without Sarah, they never would have even gotten as far as they did.

Hey, nay sayers go to conservatives4palin and listen to El Rushbo saying Sarah can win.

“The liberals are telling us they are terrified of Palin they aren’t going after Huckabee, they aren’t going after Mitt they are terrified of Sarah because she can beat Obama!”

Rush is RIGHT!
http://www.conservatives4palin.com/
go ther if you dare and listen to Rush!

dhunter on July 24, 2009 at 11:12 PM

Sarah is a good governor and most Alaskans have been happy with her. If she had sat around wasting the taxpayers time and money fighting ethics complaints, she still would have easily won her re-election.

She is clean of ethics problems and free now to take the war to the national level against Obama and the Statists.

Things are looking up for the GOP. They can clearly take the House back and Sarah can help.

If Rush thinks she is the front-runner that’s good enough for me.

Yea, the guy who finshed 2nd because all others but the leader dropped out?’

Huck let a murderer go free, and he murdered again, but not in Huck’s state.

He’s weak on immigration, and somehow get’s support here… I dunno know…

Hog Wild on July 24, 2009 at 11:22 PM

Huckabee is John McCain without the heroic story. Another uninspiring moderate who will find a way to lose a Presidential election. The only way Obama gets a second term is if a guy like Huckabee is the nominee. No matter how awful the next 3 1/2 years are, if we just run another retread Republican, we will lose. America is dying and the best we can do is Mike Huckabee…..we deserve what we get if thats the case.

GRRRRRR…..Huckabee gave us McCain with his back door deals to screw Romney….i will NEVER forgive him for that. I can promise….i know more than a few conservatives that will vote 3rd party before they vote for Mike Huckabee…..

We better nip this in the bud before we self destruct….which is the only way the Dems will keep the White House in 2012.

alecj on July 24, 2009 at 8:57 PM

I’m not a HuckHead, but Huck is nothing like John McCain. He truly believes everything he says. You know McCain doesn’t give a flip about abortion and most socially conservative issues. Furthermore, Huck would have been much better able to react on his feet when the nutbars at his rallies started calling Obama a Secret Muslim etc.

I’m not insulting you personally, just your approach. As for the time I spend here, maybe an hour total a day.

Nah, some of them I do pass up.

I don’t visit C4P much; usually just following links there that I see elsewhere. And it isn’t a question of being upset that someone isn’t “fawning all over her”; it’s the continual cheap shot, ad hominem, desperate attempts at minimization ad nauseam.

It’s not my job to galvanize support for Sarah Palin. She’s not even running for anything that I know of.
And if someone has reasonable criticism of Palin that isn’t somehow rooted in some weird resentment that lots of people like her, I’m willing to listen.

I am done, done, done with both parties who are for big govt, more and more taxes, etc., and are not for the people. Both parties are corrupt period, because whoever is chosen President was already picked by the Elite. Obama, Bush, those before are puppets for the Elite. This healthcare systems we’ve been battling for years (I’m 53 and don’t take pharma drugs because I take care of myself eating foods provided by mother nature, exercise, etc.,), bailouts, nationalization, etc., and god forbid, cap & trade must never pass is just a ploy to get all people controlled/enslaved by our govt. They are not for the people.

Here is a quote by Norman Mattoon Thomas:
(November 20, 1884-December 19, 1968) was a leading American Socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America:

The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US, Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 speech:

The American People will never knowingly adopt socialism.
But, under the name of “liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.
He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform”.

If that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will because this is what we have today. Time to vote for the 3rd party – Constitution Party.

Bradky on July 25, 2009 at 8:12 AM

One of the supreme problems of the Huck, Mittens, and AssClown GOP crowd is that they assume that Palin is ignorant when she is manifestly not. Not only is she not ignorant, in leaving office at this time, she made a shrewd move to get in the open field to deal with her opposition and start rolling up the Right, as Reagan did after 1976.

That’s why I really don’t take the WaPo push poll seriously. I bet if you look at polling done in the summer of 1977, Reagan wasn’t looking too well, either. Events, not men or women, become the masters of our destinies.

Had she stayed in Alaska, the lower 48 would have been left to Mittens’ faux Opportunist Conservatism. And she would have remained under siege financially. Now, she’s not only going to be wealthier, but she’ll be on the attack on all fronts. And she’ll have the chance to become more substantively conservative on issues of national policy.

The problem with this is that right now, whether we like it or not, voting for a third party is the surest way to ensure the left wins. I wish that were not so, but it is.

Rather than branching off into 3rd party oblivion, why not us try and pull a Gipper and retake our party from the weak-kneed moderates and elitists?

SHe’ll do a good job, but under someone elses Presidency I hate to say. VP slot maybe. Huckabee ain’t got it folks.
Obama has ruined it for Blacks for a while.

SHE QUIT!!!!
Rather than roll up her sleeves and and lead the State of Alaska she quit. What a role model, you betcha.

jero_jones on July 25, 2009 at 12:18 PM

You’re right! She should have stayed chained to her title like a good little target and sit back helplessly, unable to campaign for conservatives in the lower 48, and watch as she was sued into bankruptcy while the people of Alaska was charged millions, her policies were permanently stalled and Parnell had no coat tails to run on.

Brilliant strategy!!

powerpro on July 25, 2009 at 12:29 PM

I am no big Huck fan but had to roll my eyes yesterday when Howard Kurtz tweeted a whine that Huck was the guest host on O’Reilly and made snide comments about Fox, Huck and the race for 2012. Kurtz can be OK and then he can be a real jerk.

Polls don’t mean anything…especially when they come from WaPo.

SO WHAT!!! LOL. Sour grapes because she won’t play your game, don’cha know. Too bad you’ve been outsmarted again, you betcha!

I voted for Sarah in 2008 in spite of John McCain and I firmly believe that I’ll be voting for Sarah again in 2012 no matter who the Republicans put up against her.

RJL on July 25, 2009 at 2:31 PM

At the picnic yesterday Sarah was photographed holding a copy of Mark Levin’s book Liberty and Tyranny.

WaPo says it all. Another rag along the lines of the NY Slimes. Please. No one in their right mind takes any poll seriously. They are 100% rigged.

WaPo: Palin’s net favorable rating now at -13

Bill30097: AllhPukeit’s net favorable rating now at -100%

bill30097 on July 25, 2009 at 6:34 PM

Huckabee??? Talk about pulling the moths out of the closet…

ErinF on July 25, 2009 at 9:03 PM

ANYBODY that’s had the kind of hardcore media smothering that has been done to Palin is bound to have these repercussions in public opinion. The general public still has not fully awakened yet.

But they will soon…

ErinF on July 25, 2009 at 9:05 PM

We are a long way from any kind of critical election. Polls at this stage are not really important. By the time it matters again… people will likely forget about the way Palin left her job. I’m not a fan but I just don;t read too much into these numbers at this time.

lexhamfox on July 25, 2009 at 11:32 PM

Hey Allah, haven’t you figured it out yet? The only reason that Huck consistently leads the pack is because he is the only one with a TV presence via his own show on Fox. Connect the dots willya?

Dr. Dog on July 26, 2009 at 1:02 AM

Oh for goodness sakes you chickensh!it appeaser republicans and rhino Democrats in republican clothing are pathetic.

Go ahead, Run Huckabee…hahaha.

Lose another election….morons.

Or better yet, just tell Barry he can have a second term uncontested.

Unbelievable how stupid you all are.

BillaryMcBush on July 26, 2009 at 1:53 AM

If you stop talking about the sinister minister maybe he’ll go away.

Dr B on July 26, 2009 at 4:50 AM

I’m not a HuckHead, but Huck is nothing like John McCain. He truly believes everything he says.

Scary isn’t it?

MSimon on July 26, 2009 at 5:36 AM

Romney Care sank Romney. He just doesn’t know it yet.

MSimon on July 26, 2009 at 5:41 AM

58 percent now say Sotomayor should be confirmed, a higher post-hearing number than WaPo recorded for either Roberts or Alito. Naturally, even though there’s not a thing they can do to stop her, Cornyn and Hatch declared today that they’re voting no anyway. Smart thinkin’, GOP.

Never vote according to the evidence and one’s platform. Always join the mob. Smart thinkin’, Allahp.

No sense to any opposition on anything that matters because the only thing that matters is being “in” on the group-think. Otherwise, nothing matters.

maverick muse on July 26, 2009 at 8:15 AM

Scanning the WaPo article twice, and attempting unsuccessfully the WaPo link TO the poll, I did not notice WHERE those who were polled lived. I saw personal comments from Ohio, etc., that were not necessarily part of the poll, just part of the article. And articles are nearly always composed by various writers who interject their own opinions; modern “jernalism”.

IF the poll were taken from Washingtonians, old news is no news.

You caught his attempt to “slow” Obama this week.
/lol if it worked

MSimon on July 26, 2009 at 5:36 AM

Note well Obama’s fixation to “make” press conferences. We ain’t seen nothin’ yet if it were Huck. Can you imagine Sunday School ad nauseum from the TOTUS? Huckabee’s “golden moment” interjections during conservative talk radio commercials make me puke. And THAT’S a huckabee moment.

So she doesn’t read newspapers but she does read books with flags and eagles on the covers?

simplesimon on July 26, 2009 at 11:48 AM

Well, recent Zogby and Rasmussen polls put Zero at -9. Joe Biden isn’t listed. But after Wednesday presser all MSM will not broadcast his pressers to prevent him from damaging himself further.
