Hot Air Approval Survey: August Results

posted at 8:09 am on August 13, 2011 by

Paul Ryan tops the approval list this round, followed by Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, John Bolton and Herman Cain.

Sarah Palin again won the overall question of who readers would want as the nominee. Michele Bachmann topped the question for the preferred candidate among declared candidates, followed by Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich.

And since this is Ames Straw Poll time, the results for declared candidates, as voted by Iowans.

I’m on Twitter.

Update: By request, the Presidential tracker to date.

I am confused by the fact that more people highly disaprove of John Bolton than Sara Palin.

Count to 10 on August 13, 2011 at 9:25 AM

A Sarah Palin comes around once in a life time.

You know it and I know it.

Don’t blow it America!

220 Ron Paul idiots? Are you sure Spathi didn’t just vote 220 times?

220 Ron Paul idiots? Are you sure Spathi didn’t just vote 220 times?

Maybe 119 times, because I picked Ron Paul just for fun because Palin is not declared yet.

I’m not a idiot, I just play one on the interwebs ….

Ronald Reagan came around in my lifetime and so did Sarah Palin. I would take Reagan first. That said, Reagan ran and lost a few times before it was “his time”. I don’t know if Sarah Palin has a time but I am pretty sure that 2012 is not “her time”.

Am I the ONLY ONE who watched the last debate?!?!
Anyone who watched it would have given at least a 50% approval rating of Newt.

I don’t know if Sarah Palin has a time but I am pretty sure that 2012 is not “her time”.

Greyledge Gal on August 13, 2011 at 10:30 AM

In the end it is up to We The People. IF you really like Sarah be certain to assist her, as I shall do, when she announces her intention to run. ;o)
