March Primary Survey: Polls are now open

posted at 9:42 pm on March 7, 2011 by Patrick Ishmael

It’s that time again. And a quick reminder to vote just once… Trying to game the vote hurts your candidate. And if you missed our results from the last round of voting, click here.

Note also that there’s also been a roster update this month to reflect changes in the race. John Thune has been removed as an option for President because he has formally declared his intention not to participate in the race. That said, I have left him as a vice presidential option.

Also note that if Chris Christie and Paul Ryan continue to express their disinterest in running for President, they will be removed from the topline question next month but remain as VP options. Because they’re grassroots favorites, they’re still being asked about their intentions and may still be coaxed into running. However, as their personal positions are crystal clear (Example: “Short of suicide, I don’t really know what I’d have to do to convince you people that I’m not running. I’m not running!”), another month denying interest will place them into the same position as Thune. I welcome your feedback.

But I already voted in the Green Room :[

Jeddite on March 7, 2011 at 9:43 PM

No worries; it’s been counted.

Patrick Ishmael on March 7, 2011 at 9:44 PM

Gnarly. No vote-stuffing for my candidate of choice! :3

Jeddite on March 7, 2011 at 9:46 PM

not working for me…

golfmann on March 7, 2011 at 9:49 PM

Palin/Cain or bust.

SouthernGent on March 7, 2011 at 9:50 PM

Ok. Cards on the table. Ryan/Cain for me. Fingers crossed that he changes his mind and runs.

Purple Fury on March 7, 2011 at 9:55 PM

Christie/Rubio

Y-not on March 7, 2011 at 9:57 PM

Palin/West for 2012. Top choice of conservatives everywhere.

shmendrick on March 7, 2011 at 9:58 PM

Don’t know who will get the number one slot, but I think Petraeus is a dark horse for the VP if we get a squishy at the top of the ticket.

txmomof6 on March 7, 2011 at 10:02 PM

Christie/Rubio

Y-not on March 7, 2011 at 9:57 PM

That would work, too.

Purple Fury on March 7, 2011 at 10:04 PM

Put me in the ‘decline to respond’ category; the one category that never gets reported.

Magic eight ball is getting worn; the ‘ask again later’ is almost impossible to read now.

Skandia Recluse on March 7, 2011 at 10:07 PM

Palin/Jindal here.

I don’t see too many other candidates stepping up with the money and the appeal to go to the distance on the Presidential side.

I’m with:

Why bother to stick Johnson on there if you’re going to leave off the Pauls? (and I include Rand b/c if you have Allen West as a contender, there’s no reason not to include a freshman Senator). And why include Petraeus who’s never given any indication that he’d run — or even that he’s a Republican? Anyhow, the poll is not working for me…

Dire Straits on March 7, 2011 at 10:18 PM

Christie/Ryan.

nickj116 on March 7, 2011 at 10:20 PM

Why is Jindal listed for Veep but not for Pres?
*not that it mattes since he’s going to be reelected LA Gov. in November*

annoyinglittletwerp on March 7, 2011 at 10:22 PM

Palin/West… From the southeast to the northwest, they cover the country.

cthulhu on March 7, 2011 at 10:24 PM

I voted Pawlenty/Jindal.
I WANTED Jindal/ Pence but since they’re not running…

annoyinglittletwerp on March 7, 2011 at 10:24 PM

annoyinglittletwerp on March 7, 2011 at 10:22 PM

I think he has made it known he is not running..:)

Dire Straits on March 7, 2011 at 10:24 PM

I can see which ticket is the most popular so far.
As Artie Johnson used to say:

Verrry Interesting!

kingsjester on March 7, 2011 at 10:26 PM

Palin/Cain…I would go with Palin/West, but West was just elected, so pulling him out would mean we lose his vote. Instead, I can keep him and have Cain too. Win/win.

Pattosensei on March 7, 2011 at 10:31 PM

Palin/Rubio

Without a nationwide primary on the same day, my vote like most of yours, will make no difference. Very irritating.

derft on March 7, 2011 at 10:35 PM

Cain/West

Knucklehead on March 7, 2011 at 10:37 PM

Palin/West/2012!

canopfor on March 7, 2011 at 10:13 PM

Palin/Cain! But we’re close.

Pattosensei on March 7, 2011 at 10:31 PM

Yes. I tried to make this point to someone on a thread a while back. Why risk losing West’s seat in the house for a VP run when you have Cain?

predator on March 7, 2011 at 10:41 PM

Excellent point! I never thought of that.

Palin/West. I understand about West but he is still my favorite.

hboulware on March 7, 2011 at 10:45 PM

I love the guy, but I don’t want to weaken our position in the house to make a run for the WH. His day will come. Let him make a name for himself first. Cain has never held office true enough, but in many ways that’s a plus for me. Can you say outside the beltway?

predator on March 7, 2011 at 10:49 PM

Palin/Cain will rock the world…

Sounds like a winner!

Right again canopfor!

Palin/West for 2012. Top choice of conservatives everywhere.

Here’s another one. :)

Palin/West. I understand about West but he is still my favorite.

Geochelone on March 7, 2011 at 10:52 PM

Palin/Bolton and I agree let’s not handicap ourselves by taking a TEA Partier out of Congress…

CCRWM on March 7, 2011 at 11:09 PM

I agree about not sacrificing good conservatives in Congress, so that leaves out West, Ryan, Rubio and Bachmann for me. They are needed where they’re at. Besides, other than West who has served in the military none of them have executive experience. Herman Cain is an appealing prospect because at least he has been a successful businessman. I really need for candidates to have actually run something in their lives before I am willing to back them for president.

That said, of course Palin is my candidate right now and I don’t really see that changing. If she didn’t run, I am not sure who I would back. I like Jindal but he isn’t running. I have started to sour on Christie for various reasons. I guess I might go with Cain. I’d really just have to wait and see how they all do. But none of them really excite me much. Palin is the only one I feel any enthusiasm for.

NoLeftTurn on March 7, 2011 at 11:19 PM

Palin/West

wheelgun on March 7, 2011 at 11:22 PM

Why was Petraeus not included in the second choice poll?

gary4205 on March 7, 2011 at 11:38 PM

Christie.

nickj116 on March 7, 2011 at 10:20 PM

Wrong poll. This is for the REPUBLICAN nomination.

Try looking for the al Qaeda/Hamas ballot.

gary4205 on March 7, 2011 at 11:40 PM

I wrote in Perry as the other choice in the poll.

I still like Palin West because I like West’s no BS about the war on terror. And I like how he calls people out. Remember, the role of the VP candidate is to be the attack dog on the ticket. He would do that job extremely well. AND since he is also a black man, no one can accuse him of being a racist for calling out obama, BUT, I can hear the uncle tom rants coming from the MSNBC liberal racists!!!

karenhasfreedom on March 7, 2011 at 11:44 PM

Palin/Giuliani. Palin/West is more emotionally appealing, but not as electorally promising. She doesn’t need more base enthusiasm.

rrpjr on March 8, 2011 at 12:28 AM

I’m going with Cain/Bolton. Cain has the energy, business intellect and will remind people of Reagan with his booming voice declaring the greatness of our nation. And Mr. Bolton would provide all the foreign policy chops that the ticket needs without weakening our Congressional membership.

rmel80 on March 8, 2011 at 1:03 AM

I wonder if the Palinista’s are going to ‘game’ this poll like they did the last one. It is pathetically sad, really.

FlatFoot on March 8, 2011 at 1:35 AM

Palin can’t win unless improves image by getting another job in politics that she sticks with, the demonization so far has worked; West is way too green, not known very well. Others like Rubio, Christie aren’t for 2012 but maybe the future.
Romney isn’t that bad, he has good business experience to match his time as governor. Also this time around he is more well-known and maybe could win some primaries. Pawlenty could be a better speaker and isn’t deeply conservative, but may be the best shot if he can win some primaries. His positions are overall pretty good, and how many Republicans can boast that Democrats have sued them because he blocked them in their efforts to tax-and-spend?

Ok. Cards on the table. Ryan/Cain for me. Fingers crossed that he changes his mind and runs.

Purple Fury on March 7, 2011 at 9:55 PM

Great pick. I went Daniels/Cain only because I doubt that Ryan would run.

No John McCain?

cntrlfrk on March 8, 2011 at 7:58 AM

Palin/West!

Palin’s got all sorts of successful administrative experience, record of taking on special interests and the establishment, and doesn’t take $h!t from anyone. Oh, and doesn’t try to pretend to be like someone else, unlike several other contenders. She is her own woman.

West’s military record is amazing, and he is a Congressman. Still new though, that’s why he’d be a good VP pick. But his term is 2 years, right? So it would end when he became VP. Of course if they lost, he’d be SOOL.

But didn’t West just say he’s looking for 5 terms as congressman?

Dongemaharu on March 8, 2011 at 8:07 AM

Yes for Palin-West

Christie,no show,so anti 2nd amendment .

Sandybourne on March 8, 2011 at 8:43 AM

“What?

cntrlfrk on March 8, 2011 at 7:58 AM”

Naughty, naughty. My ‘McCain hate radar detector’, by Ronco went off. It’s a good question though. Whatever happened to “Project Mac” where he was going to remake the GOP in his image? I know, I know. Which image, right? Would it be ‘The Mav’s’ GOP or TAFKAM’s GOP? To paraphrase General Patton’s poem: ‘He’s run with many names, many guises, but always he.’ Remember how Mac and Jeb and Eric C. and others were telling us to forget Reagan. Reagan is so yesterday. They were the new, listening to you, GOP and they can do big government just like Obama and the Dems? All this from Mac just weeks after claiming to be a Reagan foot soldier. I could go on for hours about Mac, but as I do my hate radar detector buzzes constantly. So I’ll just sign off until next time.

But Palin will need him as Secretary of State for when the time comes to clean out the department and kick the UN out of the US! (ok, wishful thinking, but still…)
