The HA polls are the most worthless of polls because of the enormous bias for one or two candidates in he commentariat

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

How could Newt win, but Santorum beats both Newt and Romney in the one-on-one match ups? It doesn’t make too much sense to me.

NextGenerationVoters on January 30, 2012 at 10:58 PM

Because the vast majority of us know that Sanitorium is really the closest thing to conservative left.

Lanceman on January 30, 2012 at 11:00 PM

Then why is he still so far behind both of them?? I really hope he can have a real surge soon.

NextGenerationVoters on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

We live in the same place, Flora.

Lanceman on January 30, 2012 at 10:58 PM

I’ve discovered since registering that the state is greatly represented here at HA.

Flora Duh on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

I have vacationed down there and spent a lot of time at Clearwater Beach.
Good weather, food & fun!!

bluefox on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

Okay, Dammit! I could have voted for Palin. Sheesh!

Grrrrrr! Good night!

Fallon on January 30, 2012 at 11:05 PM

Pretty much as I expected. Man o man we could still use some more ladies here. I won’t lie I like the ladies.

Bmore on January 30, 2012 at 11:05 PM

I’ve been a HA reader for 3 yrs, nice to meet you Lanceman.

Flora Duh on January 30, 2012 at 10:54 PM

OT, shoot me an email at mulefool@hotmail.com
I can always stop by and see that your mother in law is OK.

*Warning!! If you weren’t asked to use the email,don’t. Its not just a throwaway, its rigged. The uninvited will have their hard drive melt and develop an incurable crotch itch.

katy the mean old lady on January 30, 2012 at 11:05 PM

Thank you Canopfor, I’m happy, then I come home to a Palin thread,

;-)

angrymike on January 30, 2012 at 11:06 PM

A fair warning to the GOP and its supporters. You will not win the presidential election without Ron Paul. Ron Paul supporters will not vote for any of the remaining GOP candidates; no matter who it is. We will write in Ron Paul if he is not the GOP candidate. If you think we are throwing the election away, then I will turn it on you and say it is YOU who are throwing the election away by not voting for Ron Paul. We will not vote for a candidate we cannot trust. The only candidate we trust is Ron Paul. He is the only constitutional candidate with a passion for liberty. We will not compromise our principals by electing the other side of the same coin; the establishment candidate. This is a reality and you better come to grips with it. If you want Obama for another four years, then vote for the establishment GOP candidate. A vote for Santorum, Gingrich or Romney is a vote for Obama. Sorry if this message comes off strong because I don’t mean to be rude, it’s just reality.

No other candidate has such passionate supporters…there is a reason for this. I believe everyone here is for liberty, freedom and the constitution. I know we are, so let’s support the champion of Liberty…Ron Paul!

dom89031 on January 30, 2012 at 11:06 PM

Not yet. Tomorrow afternoon I will be coloring in the arrow for Santorum.

Lanceman on January 30, 2012 at 11:02 PM

Good for you. I’m in Texas, was pulling for my governor, that didn’t work out.

Santorum it is because this is where I’m at.

JPeterman on January 30, 2012 at 11:07 PM

Actually I only came back when Newt started to seem more credible. I don’t like Newt.

Igor R. on January 30, 2012 at 10:52 PM

LOL, I remember you around when the debates started or shortly thereafter.
Speaking of this election, I’m not convinced that even Superman could win:-)

Now, if Allen West jumped in, all bets are off!!!!

I think Obama’s got feet of clay. It’s too late for anyone to jump in because of the state deadlines.

Igor R. on January 30, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Do you now how much you have to pay for a good sarc tag these days?

katy the mean old lady on January 30, 2012 at 10:53 PM

I buy mine by the case:-) I thot your post was pretty good!!

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

Saw this over at the Palin thread, then I saw you were her. I wanted to make sure of something you may have been confused about.

You are spending waaay too much time in here but thanks for summing up the regular cast.

34 people, 130 million voters…. =2.61538462 × 10-7

Statistically insignificant to a power of 10 to the negative seven…

Bradky on January 29, 2012 at 10:12 PM

Not meant to be a regular cast. The list was for people who had helped in breaking the 2000 mark. Notice on the list when you go back to review the thread, the striking lack of haters. The folks that started pitching in at the below attached link forward were there as non haters. Just thought you should know that since you had missed the entire point of why we did it.

Okay.. if it is that important to point that out thanks i guess.

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Then why is he still so far behind both of them?? I really hope he can have a real surge soon.

NextGenerationVoters on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

Well, that Bradkyhole is pretty much correct.

Lanceman on January 30, 2012 at 11:17 PM

I think Obama’s got feet of clay. It’s too late for anyone to jump in because of the state deadlines.

Igor R. on January 30, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Probably so. Especially since someone advanced several already. I didn’t agree with that. Well, going to see what other threads are up or elsewhere.

All mankind have feet of clay:-)

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:04 PM

They’re worthless because they constantly promote a false choice. There is always a third option, whether it’s voting for another candidate or abstaining. But it’s pretty clear that these polls are trying to steer results in a certain direction.

Dante on January 30, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Cool, thats what I had hoped it was for. I have to go up to Lexington on business soon. Any tips?

Dante on January 30, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Hey Dante, How we doing?

Bmore on January 30, 2012 at 11:26 PM

I laughed because you said Newtmentum and then I saw the polling data and you see that Romney is gaining and Newt is losing. Does not make sense to call it Newtmentum.

If you like bourbon chocolates you may want to consider
http://www.oldkycandy.com/store/index.php
If you can make it to one of the horse farms for a tour those are nice.
If you do that look for a castle in the middle of a field. Some rich person with more money than sense built a replica of a European castle about 50 years ago. Can’t miss it as you are driving on the road to versailles — they tried to sell it for about 25 years. We drove by there in Dec and it looks like someone finally bought it.

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:29 PM

JPeterman on January 30, 2012 at 11:29 PM

No we are all from the Harlan area originally.

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:31 PM

Santorum beats Mitt and Newt one on one but loses in a three way match? Oh, 71 percent of those voting are male. Now I know why the poll makes no sense and why so many posts here are so illogical.

Bradky on January 30, 2012 at 11:29 PM

Thanks I’ll be there downtown for four days. I’m looking forward to it. I’ve never been there so I’m still trying to determine where to stay and such. I love chocolate so that’s a definite.

Bmore on January 30, 2012 at 11:32 PM

No problem hope you have a good time. they have samples in the store – some are quite strong with the bourbon taste but yummy!

William Shatner owned one of the horse farms at one point in the past.

Let me know how you liked it once you get back. have a good night!

Thanks again, good night.

Bmore on January 30, 2012 at 11:36 PM

The polls I’ve seen recently clearly show that if Santorum were to drop out, votes would split and Romney would still be in the lead, but if Newt were to drop out, Conservatives would rally around Santorum and give Romney a run for his money.

Decoski on January 30, 2012 at 9:57 PM

I know that’s true, but I was referring to a line in the theme song of my favorite show, which is set in Harlan County.

At least they can be honest about who is being polled. Conservatives.
PPP has to crawl through maggots, feces, and urine to find their fellow liberals and poll them. And, that’s just in Nancy Pelosi’s office.

CherryBombsBigBrownBeaver on January 30, 2012 at 11:48 PM

Hey you Palin-nuts!!! All you clowns that arent working full time gigs!!! Who you want as president??? Whats that? Sarah Palin?

HEY EVERYBODY, SARAH PALIN WINS THE POLL!!! SHE MUST BE GREAT!!!

You getting paid to spam multiple threads here with this?

Sultanofsham on January 31, 2012 at 12:04 AM

Wha???

Santorum beats Gingrich head-to-head.
Santorum beats Romney head-to-head.
Both Gingrich and Romney best Santorum in a four-way race??

Anyone have a reasonable explanation for that?

RegularJoe on January 30, 2012 at 10:04 PM

You betcha. Gingrich and Romney both have high negatives among HA readers. Santorum is respected for his conservative bona fides, but he lacks sizzle — big time. He seems more suited to the Ministry than to politics, and I don’t mean that in a sarcastic way. I like Rick Santorum. But it is what it is.

minnesoter on January 31, 2012 at 12:17 AM

Seems like a few people have chimed in that dislike the HA poll. They seem to confuse what the polls intent is. Personally I love these polls. Its nice to see the make up HA. Thanks Patrick as always.

Bmore on January 31, 2012 at 12:20 AM

It is actually very sad that Sarah Palin has abandoned the conservative movement (snip)

cynccook on January 31, 2012 at 12:26 AM

I have no idea, after all [Palin's] done with the different candidates in 2010, why someone as damaged as Newt Gingrich is the hill she’s chosen to die on. It boggles the mind. … (snip)

KingGold on January 30, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Maybe she understands better than most what it means to be smeared by MSM liberals & party elites?

minnesoter on January 31, 2012 at 12:30 AM

I should also add that Palin owes the GOP nothing except for a good screwing to my post above.

Amen.

minnesoter on January 31, 2012 at 12:30 AM

She chose to endorse McCain against J.D. Hayworth, a true constitutional conservative in the Arizona Senate race. She is as dirty as the rest of them.

How so? Maybe she says one thing in public to be diplomatic and because she doesn’t want to harm the party. Did you see that I asked her directly if she was and she said nothing? Anyone else would have laughed it off. Also the speech patterns are so familiar. You may think I’m crazy, but I think I’m right!

cynccook on January 31, 2012 at 12:52 AM

I’ve tended to be a 90% match on policy with Palin, and perhaps an 80% policy match with Christie. But I think he’s much the better candidate. … (snip)

RegularJoe on January 30, 2012 at 10:24 PM

That’s because Christie has not been targeted by the Leftist smear machine (MSM, Hollywood, Network T.V., etc.) the way Palin has. I mean, they even went after her handicapped infant! And it went on and on and on. I’ve never seen anything like it. Maybe if Christie ever has the guts to present himself as a serious threat to the status quo, his “talents” will be rather more tested than to date.

minnesoter on January 31, 2012 at 12:54 AM

Yes, I noticed that earlier and I was looking for the opportunity to disavow any knowlege of you to lanceman, but he seems to have left a while ago. Then why doesn’t minnesoter answer me? Is it because she really is Sarah Palin and she’s too honest to lie about it, perchance?

cynccook on January 31, 2012 at 1:04 AM

Could be a number of reasons. Like minnesoter’s actually an etherial being who only chooses certain mortals to answer, or perhaps he is Todd, or Tim Pawlenty. I mean anything is possible.

Sigh. Except that I realized about half-way through this that SP lived in IDAHO, not Minnesota. Still, that minnesoter lady sure does say “You betcha” a lot. *brightens* Say, does Tim Pawlenty like to say “You betcha,” too? Maybe he thinks I’m the genius!

There’s only 1 reason Romney didn’t win this poll.

That reason is…

Irritable Pundit on January 31, 2012 at 1:54 AM

The ethics charges against Newt weren’t all trumped-up, which is why nearly 200 Republicans voted to reprimand him and only 28 against it. Some were BS, but were still investigated because Newt always walked close to the ethical line. We didn’t throw him out for ethics, though, it was for gross incompetence and arrogant mishandling of his job.

She chose to endorse McCain against J.D. Hayworth, a true constitutional conservative in the Arizona Senate race. She is as dirty as the rest of them.

Hayworth was beat because he was involved in shady doin’s with Abramoff up to his eyeballs. To this day he still hasn’t complied with federal law and reimbursed the uber-lobbyist for the free use of his stadium sky box for fundraisers. He’s dirty, he’s just not very good at it.

Yep Hot Air… where the Romney haters blog.

After two years of totally factless smearless against Romney, in the end, the truth will prevail.

The Party rejects your mindless hate.

I hope you all do go get that third party up and going… because I dont’ want to be in a party with liars, bigots and hypocrites.

Lip service to conservative principles just isn’t going to cut it.

If you can’t walk the walk, please do form a party of similar hypocrites.

Hey our lil annual flower, the lying liars lying ranter said she’d share some steak with ya. Between bites, and during commercial breaks as she watches Trek, you two could swap Mittster stories…

Threaten a Ron Paul write in as if it were an anarchistic threat all you like, it won’t make me vote for a guy that’d not only completely throw Israel under the bus, but also fuel the bus, make sure the tires have spikes on them, and make sure the drive shaft is low enough to chew up the bodies.

I’d sooner vote for commiebama than an anti-semite…..oh wait…..

“Oh wait”, indeed.

That would be a tough choice, though.

Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens,) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove, that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government. But that jealousy, to be useful, must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defence against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation, and excessive dislike of another, cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots, who may resist the intrigues of the favorite, are liable to become suspected and odious; while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.”

-George Washington

Fascinating Article on Forbes:

Is Mitt Romney Actually Electable?

Richard Miniter, Contributor

So far, Mitt Romney has only won in states where he owns summer houses, like New Hampshire.

Money doesn’t always buy elections. In Iowa, he was narrowly defeated by Rick Santorum, an underfunded candidate who Romney outspent more than two to one. In South Carolina, Romney was crushed by Newt Gingrich’s 13-point win. Nevertheless, Romney outspent Gingrich by three to one.

In New Hampshire, Romney also spent heavily. More importantly, he was a “favorite son,” a familiar face and voice as a neighboring governor. And, of course, as he reminded voters in the Granite State repeatedly, he owned property in their state. Even so, he won with a less than commanding 39% of the vote.

So why does nearly every pundit and politician think that is the only “electable” candidate, the only one who can beat Obama?

The facts and evidence tell a different story.

Romney has never won a majority (50% or better) of Republican primary or caucus voters. And, two-thirds of the time, he has had to spend vast sums just to claim the number two spot.

Tomorrow’s GOP primary in Florida may change that—but it won’t settle the issue of Romney’s electability. Romney enjoys leads in polls ranging from between five to 15 points. But he and his super-PACs had to spend more than $15 million in television advertising and millions more in radio spots and targeted mailings. If anything, Romney’s price per vote is rising—an unsustainable model given campaign-finance limits.

Meanwhile, Romney’s heavily negative advertising only drives Tea Party activists and other conservatives from one non-Romney candidate to another. Divide and conquer is a storied strategy; it may well work in Florida. But it doesn’t build votes for Romney. The non-Romney vote–despite millions of dollars, months of media coverage and dozens of debates—remains stubbornly north of 60% among Republican voters. If Romney is going to defeat Obama, he will have to unite the Grand Old Party behind him. So far, there is no evidence is any state that he can do just that.

Indeed, Romney’s nomination presents the real risk of a third-party presidential challenger, a candidate who hopes to hoover up libertarians, Tea Partiers and conservatives disaffected with Romney. Sure, that candidate would win, at most, 2% of the vote—but that percentage would be enough to swing the election to Obama.

Maybe it’s time to ask why so many voters prefer almost anyone to Romney. Let’s take a look at some issues that, so far, have gotten very little media attention.

Who would have thought? (There’s so much Newt hating going on in the posts and comments here.)

I see lots of Newt love going on with my circle of friends and family. I don’t know ONE person that supports Romney. Grassroots patriots have had it with the republican establishment nominating milquetoast candidates. Rage against the machine time.

IndeCon on January 31, 2012 at 7:57 AM

I think the Hot Air polls are a good snapshot of the GOP’s grass roots. Unfortunately, there are a lot of uninformed people who only follow politics casually (if at all) voting in these primaries.

BTW…if all Palin owes the GOP is a good screwing, I hereby volunteer to serve as a representative of the GOP establishment.

Seriously, though – I caught a snippet of her on Hannity last night, and she seemed really angry…and I don’t blame her. I’m pretty ticked off myself. After the Tea Party victories in 2010, we’re throwing it all away on Romney. This is a HUGE wasted opportunity.

I hate to say so, Sarah (even though I know you’re not reading this), but you wasted a huge opportunity yourself. You should have run…and you should have built the ground game you’d need early on.

The grass roots GOP of Iowa, NH, and Florida disagree.

Palin worshipers chief among them.

After the Tea Party victories in 2010, we’re throwing it all away on Romney. This is a HUGE wasted opportunity.

Yet the TEA Party support Romney and Gingrich equally. But I’ve heard that those TEA Party folks are ignorant RINO rubes. I have to believe them because it is other TEA Party folks telling us all that. Right?

DRayRaven on January 31, 2012 at 7:58 AM

She is currently destroying whatever creds she had left by endorsing Gingrich (I don’t care how she tries to hide behind her rhetoric, she is endorsing him). She couldn’t get a ground organization going because she was universally viewed as toxic to the political process. The GOP would not support her. The indies distrusted her even more. And the dems hate her.

A ground organization requires PEOPLE. Exactly who was going to be part of her ground organization when no one trusts her?

csdeven on January 31, 2012 at 8:09 AM

csdeven, go troll someone else.
I couldn’t care less what you have to say in response to my posts…or anyone else’s. You’re nothing but a one-note Romney shill, and that’s all you’ve ever been.

DRayRaven on January 31, 2012 at 8:14 AM

That’s a weird thing to say, given that we give more money to Israel’s enemies than we do to Israel. Do you think that’s an anti-semitic policy? It certainly doesn’t make sense. Paul wants to end all foreign aid, which is the moral thing to do. If you’re in favor of wealth redistribution, I can understand why you’d be opposed to his plan.

Mitt is a disaster waiting to happen, not unlike McCain…
What in-roads the Republican’s have made with Jewish voters, is lost…they will hammer them with the horrible record of the Mormon church among the Jews (as well as the blacks). It’s not right, but Mitt faithful to a religion that has been unjust, recently.
Mitt was a tax raiser (fees if you must), Mitt has lost nearly every election he has entered, and only one the one because he turned his back on Republicans as a whole, and specifically conservatives.
He was a supporter of abortion…a “true” church would have banned him, or at least dressed him down for supporting, promoting, abortion, it’s against the very tenets of his religion…that will be brought out.
He “turned around businesses” but that is not a requirement, there are thousands of business men who have done better than he…Jobs, Walton’s, Gates, the list is almost endless, good businessman and good politician are not synonymous.
But connect with the people and winning elections is…and he has never been able to do that…he has lost every race against a candidate with a personality, even a partial personality.
Kennedy…and even McCain…good grief, even McCain out polled him.

right2bright on January 31, 2012 at 8:50 AM

How could Newt win, but Santorum beats both Newt and Romney in the one-on-one match ups? It doesn’t make too much sense to me.

NextGenerationVoters on January 30, 2012 at 10:58 PM

For this poll, the Mittbots all voted for Santorum in the Newt versus Santorum question because they hate Newt. Likewise The Newt supporters all threw their vote to Santorum in the Mitt versus Santorum question because they hate Mitt and Santorum really is their second choice.

I think Santorum is looking good to a lot of Conservatives right now because he did well in the last debate and he’s managed to fly under the radar. However how well would he stand up if he was the object of 12 million in attack ads by the Romney team? If he ever gets some momentum I guess we’ll find out.
