Colorado: Palin 29, Romney 25, Huckabee 18

posted at 6:47 pm on May 18, 2010 by Allahpundit

Yeah, it’s just one state, but she deserves a little free buzz after doing a nice job on the State Department’s China/Arizona fiasco. Besides, to my knowledge, this is the very first PPP poll of any kind where she’s had a lead. Sarahmentum?

Conservatives 4 Palin makes a nice catch: When PPP polled Colorado back in early March, Romney was winning going away. What happened? Two things, I think. One, obviously, is that a lot of conservatives did some re-assessing of RomneyCare after ObamaCare passed later that month. And two — well, just compare these crosstabs from March to the new ones up above:

Sarahcuda’s ticked up a few points but it’s Gingrich’s inclusion in the new poll that appears to be killing Romney. (Paulnuts, I suspect, comprised many of the undecideds in the earlier poll.) Which is mighty bad news for Mitt, because as of this afternoon it sure sounds like Newt is running. Exit quotation: “[H]e thinks Obama has ‘about one chance in five of getting reelected.’”

That prospect has the Obama war room waking up in the middle of the night thinking of that nightmare scenario.

technopeasant on May 18, 2010 at 7:49 PM

I told the people at C4P to remember that just because PPP is good to you one day doesn’t mean you consider it a legit outfit.

I take anything from them, even this result, with a grain of salt?

Palin @ 69% among libtards? Really?

Yes, that is the only 3 AM call he has concern about, allth eother scenarios he wants to happen.

bluemarlin on May 18, 2010 at 7:54 PM

Can’t be right. Why would liberal Republicans support her over Romney?

Libertarians are lumped into the liberal category, I believe.

And Colorado I believe has a lot more libertarians in proportion to its population than most states in the union.

technopeasant on May 18, 2010 at 8:08 PM

PPP is usually all over the place but its nice to see Palin get a liitle love from them either way.

Maybe whenever the Rich Lowry’s of the world are done riding Mitt Romney’s nuts, he can help Palin and Brewer defend Arizona Sovreignty

Palin in 2012 means Obama cruises to victory. It appears that the Tea Party is now electing unelectable candidates. Look for the Democrats to remain in power for a very long time.

Allah your softening…
huffpoop had a hatchet piece on Sarah and there were almost 28,000 posts by 3:30 in the afternoon. Don’t any progressives work? She is so awesome how she gets them so wound up. Sarah keep it up we need you!

The results of Palin’s 72 hours this past weekend:

Rasmussen DTP approval/disapproval: 45/53

Gallup DTP approveal/disapproval: 46/46

Palin has the momentum; Obama is heading to the bottom.

technopeasant on May 18, 2010 at 8:20 PM

Oh goody, maybe Newt can have San Fran Nan on the ticket too. Or put her in charge of his EPA since they agree so much on global warning. Just what the GOP needs. Another Washington insider who’ll say anything he thinks you want to hear to get his hands on the levers of power.

Right. What we need is another winner like John McCain or Lindsey Graham. If you voted for McCain, you have no right to criticize any prospective candidate. None.

This is one of the most deluded, willfully blind opinions I have seen here in a long time. Just plain silly.

This guy voted for Obama, and will again regardless of what happens. His screen name is a stupid anti-Bush statement.

That is sooo 2006.

I can see Colorado going for Palin.. I’d vote for her. Only one right now who says what she means and means what she says…

I don’t put much stock in polls like this this far out, but give Allahpundit credit for posting about a poll favorable to Palin. Lay off the guy now. :D

His personality is as polarizing as Bill Clinton’s.

Dear Newt.

STFU and STFD. Go back to the couch with Nancy and chat among yourselves about global warming.

Thanks you.

^ Partly why Sarah is a “last resort” candidate for me…if she pulls another ‘Brave Sir Robin’ from the Presidency, I’m never going to live down voting for her.

But what can the right do – rerun McLame? Pffft, like that’s gonna work.

Dark-Star on May 18, 2010 at 10:19 PM

Newt Gingrich cheated on his wife just like Souder did and he liked it.

He liked it a lot.

happyfeet on May 18, 2010 at 10:41 PM

These sort of stories are starting to pop up. Sarah understands symbolism quite well. No one is more comparable to Ronald Reagan than Sarah.

The HillBuzz guys called it the day after he Chicago speech. This is from American Thinker:

Will Palin use 100th birthday of Reagan to announce for the presidency?

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/05/will_palin_use_100th_birthday.html

Oh, And Sarah just endorsed a woman in Colorado…that might possibly have something to do with the polling, but who knows.

Inanemergencydial on May 18, 2010 at 11:52 PM

Palin was the first to mock Obama and boy dies he need mocking. To succeed Sarah needs to learn to speak slower and to lower her voice. I love her but she really needs a voice coach as she can sound shrill when she’s excited. If she runs the media will attack her with everything they have so she needs history, economics and geography coaches in order to duel with them.

Basilsbest on May 19, 2010 at 12:05 AM

Love her.

unlisted on May 19, 2010 at 12:33 AM

What’s the count if you add “none of the above”?

None of the above better get a plurality. These guys just don’t have it.

C’mon, Palin talks a good game, but do you really want her as President? It wouldn’t end well.

Romney – who brought us MassachusettsCare?

Huckabee – Really?

Please tell me this isn’t the best we can do.

Pablo Snooze on May 19, 2010 at 1:33 AM

A Huck or a Mitt will only sit up there atop all this massive spending/taxes (+the stuff we haven’t even seen yet they’re going to dump on us), whine about the Democrats overspending but yet gleefully rake in the bucks and the power anyway. I’m a Republican, but I know damn well these Republicans never do away with Socialist programs or new taxes. Oh, they may lower the taxes for businesses (which is great in my book as those costs just get passed on to us and corporate taxes stifle growth and hiring) but since at least the ’60s overall spending has been climbing steadily under both parties.

Right now, Sarah Palin is the only one I can think of who will actually try to reverse the process though I’m not confident it would be much more than under Reagan and despite the hindsight hype he either didn’t want to (which I suspect) or couldn’t really dismantle Great Society junk nor do anything meaningful about taxes.

No moron, they’re nominating un-nominatable nominees.

Akzed on May 19, 2010 at 9:13 AM

I still think that Romney and Huck (and now apparently Gingrich as well) will split the anti-Palin old-guard Republican vote, which is how Palin will get the nom. Interesting, because I’m not sure she’s ready and I think she’ll deal with significant pushback from within the party – by which I mean the Republicans who are always talking about how we need to unite behind the candidate are going to be uncharacteristically silent.

Assuming that’s the pattern, what then? Palin/Christie 2012? Palin/Cain 2012?

My ideal: Herman Cain/Chris Christie 2012, but I’d certainly vote for Palin if she got the nom. I adore Sarah!
