Let me look at my Tarot cards….hmmmm

Yep, Palin will win this poll.

NickDeringer on July 1, 2011 at 8:47 AM

That lady is dressed like Palin.

I kid…

Fallon on July 1, 2011 at 8:50 AM

Interested to see the results on this one. Of course Palin will win but I’m more interested to see how close “second” is to her.

gophergirl on July 1, 2011 at 8:52 AM

Doing my part to support meaningless polls sixteen months out from an election. Glad to help.

SKYFOX on July 1, 2011 at 8:52 AM

A box for 36 to 50? That’s depressing.

myrenovations on July 1, 2011 at 8:53 AM

Body armor – check

First aid kit – check

Ok, I’m ready.

darwin on July 1, 2011 at 8:54 AM

I thought this was funny – I’m visiting in Spain, so I get the following: Volver al formulario | Crea tu propio formulario. Evidently even this poll is in Spainish.

msflea on July 1, 2011 at 8:55 AM

RON PAUL IS GONNA WIN!!!!!! WHOOOOOOO!

I kid I kid.

Good to see HA joining CNN and Faux News working that Bachmann boomlet. Bad news for the TPaw boomlet.

DrAllecon on July 1, 2011 at 10:17 AM

Bachmann resume: I had a revolving door and raised 23 foster kids. (I know well at lease she did it)(Was there money)(I know my sister-inlaw does the foster thing and they pay her money)

That didn’t work so now she has added a miscarriage to the 23 foster kids to her resume. (Sad for the miscarriag but true)

Bachmann has given many speeches to pro-life groups and this is the first we have heard about any of this. (I could be wrong)

I am still waiting to hear what her executive experience is and a record of accomplshments to show she is a leader and not a player.

I know she is a cheerleader with a voice but with that cheerleader I want a record to show you are a leader or POTUS material.

Any Bachmann fans on this board who can enlight me on her record???

Geochelone on July 1, 2011 at 6:08 AM

Double dittos.

What might be interesting would be to add 3rd choice for POTUS & 2nd choice for VP. extra complexity but sure to be insightful. How many some pick Palin, Ron Paul and Huntsman as their top 3 choices? Or how many would pick Cain & West as top two for VP?

She is the one that is using that as a ticket to the White House. I told my sister in-law thatshe should run for POTUS. She has better qualifications than Bachmann.

My sister-in-law has the foster care and miscarriage resume and she can take it one step further.

My sister-in-law has adopted two of her foster kids.

I say that makes my sister in-law more qualified to be POTUS than Bachmann.

What say you on the board???

Everyone knows the media has been after Palin. Do you really deny that?!

If there really are a huge percentage of Reps that wont vote for her , she wont win the primary , so why your worry?

Ed Rollins attacking Palin but not Mitt, transparent…

Yep, Palin will win this poll.

Because she has enough fans to win the primary.

She’d get pummeled in the general though. I’d vote for her, but there’d really be no point. She’d lose by 20.

And btw, the media attacks EVERY Republican. Not just Sarah Palin. Thanks for playing.

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:04 AM

When Palin gives pro-life speeches of course she will talk about her son, Trig. That is why she was invited to give the speech in the first place. I don’t remember Gov. Palin ever taking about her two miscarriages at a pro-life event or any event especially when running for an office. I could be wrong.

The Commander-in-Chief test:

1.) Did you *introduce* a bill in Congress?

2.) Did you *co-author* a bill in Congress?

3.) Did you *vote* while a member in Congress?

Congratulations, you can be POTUS! Take your place among such august leaders like President Barack Obama or Rep. Michele Bachmann, annointed POTUS-to-be!

Punchenko on July 1, 2011 at 11:15 AM

I don’t know why some of my fellow Palin supporters feel the need to criticize Bachmann. Bachmann is a fine conservative. I’m sure we all think Palin is much better and if we’re right, she will easily dispatch Bachmann if she runs. The problem will take care of itself and there is no need to treat her like a contemptible rino ala Mitt or something. Just my $.02

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:04 AM

They’re supporters, not “fans.” And, yes, she does have enough of them to win the primary. However, if you honestly believe any Republican would lose the general election by 20 points, you’re delusional. The last time anyone even approached that margin of victory was in 1984, with 18.2%. Since 1988, the largest margin has been 8.5% in 1996, and that was with 10.1% going to a third-party candidate. Obama’s margin was only 7.3% in 2008. There’s no way that margin increases, even with the most Republicans running the most detested candidate imaginable. I firmly believe Palin can win the general, but if she were to lose, it would be by only a few points.

steebo77 on July 1, 2011 at 11:17 AM

That’s because Bachmann herself is attacking Mitt, not that you really care. You just can’t stand that Bachmann is succeeding and Palin hasn’t even made up her mind yet.

MadisonConservative on July 1, 2011 at 11:24 AM

If you honestly believe any Republican would lose the general election by 20 points, you’re delusional.

steebo77 on July 1, 2011 at 11:17 AM

Every poll released in the last year has Obama beating Palin by 10 points, with most actually showing him beating her by an even bigger margin. Three of the last five polls released him beating her by 20 points or more.

A lot of Republicans don’t like her, Indies really don’t like her, and Dems loathe her.

Where are the votes? How does she possibly beat Obama if she wins the nomination? Palin supporters can never answer that question, except to say that we’re a long way out and she can become more popular. Which they known deep down inside is nonsense.

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:24 AM

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:24 AM

Most Republicans will fall in line when faced with the prospect of more Obama. I think the majority of indies will do the same. Poll after poll shows that they agree with her on the issues, not with Obama. Poll after poll also shows that they believe she shares their values/beliefs/policy positions more than Obama does. These things would naturally be highlighted in a campaign.

Were it 1989 right now, you would be making the same arguments about Reagan, such as “A lot of Republicans don’t like him, Indies really don’t like him, and Dems loathe him.” As the campaign unfolded most Republicans and independents came around to supporting him, as did a sizable number of Dems.

Kataklysmic on July 1, 2011 at 11:16 AM

I think there is a perception that Bachman backstabbed Palin with the Rollins hire. I actually hot a call from her campaign the other night probably because I donated to her when Palin went out to help her re-election in Nov. I told them I had 4 reasons I wasn’t supporting B for POTUS:
1) I didn’t appreciate Rollins being part of her campaign because of his swipes at Palin and that reflected badly on Bachmann’s character.
2) Bachmann has no executive experience.
3) Bachman has only represented one congressional district and hasn’t even won a statewide office.
4) I’m patiently waiting for Palin who is the one I’d like for POTUS.

I was nice and her person said he’d pass on my concerns about Rollins…who knows if he did …

He realizes that is funny that you, Madison Conservative, a GreenRoom contributor who has had posts promoted to the front page of HotAir.com would consider HotAir indistinguishable from liberal blogs like the Daily Kos.

Now hush you two!

Pawlenty, the new Lunesta on July 1, 2011 at 11:53 AM

CCRWM on July 1, 2011 at 11:47 AM

I am not overjoyed about the Rollins thing either. If Palin doesn’t run and Bachmann is interested in picking up her supporters, she will have to do more about it than insisting on a private apology to a public slight. Especially considering she herself wouldn’t accept Chris Wallaces’s public apology for the flake comment. If she doesn’t go further then maybe that just symbolizes that you and I are in such a small minority of Palin supporters who feel this way that Rollins isn’t worth doing something about.

I understand many of the Palin supporters who are criticizing Bachmann actually like her and are just doing it to smoke out the people who couldn’t care less when Palin was drawn and quartered and are now howling at any criticism of Bachmann. Yes, there are those people here but anyone that duplicitous isn’t going to have their mind changed anyway. If you care to examine the collateral damage of this Bachmann bashing you will see a lot of commenters in the middle who were positively diaposed towards Palin now beginning to sour. Merited or not, it’s happening. Think about that. I would rather win the war than the battle.

Bachmann resume: I had a revolving door and raised 23 foster kids. (I know well at lease she did it)(Was there money)(I know my sister-inlaw does the foster thing and they pay her money)

That didn’t work so now she has added a miscarriage to the 23 foster kids to her resume. (Sad for the miscarriag but true)

Bachmann has given many speeches to pro-life groups and this is the first we have heard about any of this. (I could be wrong)

I am still waiting to hear what her executive experience is and a record of accomplshments to show she is a leader and not a player.

I know she is a cheerleader with a voice but with that cheerleader I want a record to show you are a leader or POTUS material.

Any Bachmann fans on this board who can enlight me on her record???

Is that you unseen? Mrs. Unseen?

Wow, just Wow.

Funny stuff. He sounds just like Unseen.

But seriously, what executive experience does Bachmann have?

Pawlenty, the new Lunesta on July 1, 2011 at 12:01 PM

Every poll released in the last year has Obama beating Palin by 10 points, with most actually showing him beating her by an even bigger margin. Three of the last five polls released him beating her by 20 points or more.

A lot of Republicans don’t like her, Indies really don’t like her, and Dems loathe her.

Where are the votes? How does she possibly beat Obama if she wins the nomination? Palin supporters can never answer that question, except to say that we’re a long way out and she can become more popular. Which they known deep down inside is nonsense.

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:24 AM

If the polls are showing 10 it really means 5.

You win the primary and it is a whole new story because all these groups will be watching the primary and they will see the real Palin. Believe me Palin will have enough money to make the corrupt MSM a none factor.

The general is a whole new ball game and I will put Obama’s record and this time he will have a record up against Palin’s record anytime.

Palin wins in a blow out.

Great post but I hope you’re not expecting a response. Well, a substantive one anyway. If you do get one it will be something non-sequiter about how the analogy is absolutely ludicrous because Palin didn’t serve two terms as governor and hasn’t spent 30 years studying conservative thought under Bill Buckley’s tutelage or something.

oldyeller on July 1, 2011 at 12:02 PM

There is no evidence to support that theory. As a matter of fact, a vast majority of the evidence shows that she loses to Obama in a landslide.

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:24 AM

By that standard, our only viable candidates against Obama are Mitt Romney or Ron Paul. And that is absurd.

Bachmann: Obama up 10+ in 5 of last 5, up 20+ in 3 of last 5
Cain: Obama up 10+ in 5 of last 5
Gingrich: Obama up 10+ in 4 of last 5, up 20+ in 1 of last 5
Hunstman: Obama up 10+ in 5 of last 5, up 20+ in 1 of last 5
Paul: Obama up 10+ in 1 of last 5
Pawlenty: Obama up 10+ in 5 of last 5
Romney: Obama up 10+ in 0 of last 5

Do accomplishments even matter when you’re accusing her of taking in foster kids for money?

Very good question. Here’s another: who are you and what have you done with MadisonConservative?

And Ronald Reagan’s children never did anything potentially embarrassing the way Palin’s have, or something…

Yep, Palin will win this poll.

NickDeringer on July 1, 2011 at 8:47 AM

The nutty wing of the Palin supporters borrow their friends and neighbors computers to game the poll.

csdeven on July 1, 2011 at 11:03 AM

On the other hand, there’s absolutely no reason to question who you are.

What a nutty charge!

didymus on July 1, 2011 at 12:11 PM

I don’t know why some of my fellow Palin supporters feel the need to criticize Bachmann. Bachmann is a fine conservative. I’m sure we all think Palin is much better and if we’re right, she will easily dispatch Bachmann if she runs. The problem will take care of itself and there is no need to treat her like a contemptible rino ala Mitt or something. Just my $.02

Kataklysmic on July 1, 2011 at 11:16 AM

I would say most Palin supporters thought very highly of Bachmann (after all, Palin endorsed her for the House and helped with her fundraising) – unfortunately that was squandered by Bachmann when she sent Ed Rollins out to spread cheap personal smears against Palin.

VidOmnia on July 1, 2011 at 12:13 PM

csdeven on July 1, 2011 at 12:04 PM

Gonna make a prediction right now and will be shocked if I am wrong. obama will not win one state south of mason-dixon line, and he will lose majority of the midwest. With the census redistricting, it brings the GOP closer, and with a candidate that will hold obama to the fire, the gop will win in a landslide. The night of the election, watch the early returns from NJ, PA, and OH, if they all go GOP, it will be a wipeout

Pawlenty, the new Lunesta on July 1, 2011 at 12:01 PM

Pawlenty problem is he is listening to th RINOS that are saying go after Obama and not each other. The primaries are about each others records and not Obama. The RINOs for the time being want Romney so they don’t want anybody attacking Romney’s record as governor. Bachmann has no record so that suits her to only attack Obama and not each other. As Huckabee said, Pawlenty needs new advisers because he should be going afer the other republicans and their records or lack of.

Pawlenty has 8 years executive experience and won a state election and should be getting his record out. The RINOs have there own agenda and it doesn’t include him.

Pawlenty claims he made a mistake about Global warming and is now against it.

If Palin believes Pawlenty about Global warming and doesn’t run and the field stays the same I could see Palin endorsing Pawlenty and going all out campaigning for him.

A Palin endorsement and Pawlenty wins the GOP primary.

oldyeller on July 1, 2011 at 12:16 PM

And btw, the media attacks EVERY Republican. Not just Sarah Palin. Thanks for playing.

nickj116 on July 1, 2011 at 11:04 AM

Good point. But somehow, it makes Palin unelectable, but not every other Republican.

Most Palin supporters don’t even bother with online polls. Maybe they should learn how the game is played.

The election is 18 month away and what you are saying today is that the only two people that should be running against Obamam is Romney and Paul.
