Hot Air Survey Results: Pre-Michigan and Arizona

posted at 7:11 pm on February 26, 2012 by

Rick Santorum continues to lead a field which has tightened a bit since the last survey. Mitt Romney returns to second place, followed by Newt Gingrich, with Ron Paul far behind. The voter landscape is not that different from what we saw Pre-Florida, with Gingrich and Santorum swapping places in a race where the top three have bunched up at the top.

Marco Rubio continues to lead the VP ballot by a wide margin, garnering more support than the next four candidates combined. Also worth noting: Readers, regardless of their own preferred nominee, believe that Romney will win in Michigan, and two-thirds believe he will win in Arizona. A majority also thinks he’ll eventually be the nominee.

Lastly: Lawn Gnome Reagan would decimate SMOD and Celery in a three-way race. That SMOD finished so closely to the green candidate should give SMOD supporters pause. Will their candidate even make it through to the convention, or will SMOD crash and burn long before?

Looks like the Paul-bots went away.

The rest was unsurprising but informative.

Thanks

I refuse to give up on Rick.
He’s got a fighting chance.

Perhaps HA should leave this to Real Clear Politics?

Surveying Hot Air readers?

Marco Rubio continues to lead the VP ballot by a wide margin, garnering more support than the next four candidates combined.

Who are those four?
Is Jindal included among them? (If not, HA readers need an education!)

Celery came in third? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Paul cant win if his supporters cant spam a poll.

Likely they got tired of participating in an exercise designed to minimize their candidate and one that is constantly built on false either/or choices.

Did I miss the results of the Palin/Christie matchup?

Why ask if you’re not going to report results?

And regarding Rubio; apparently too many folks have not done their homework on the man. His patrons include BOTH Jeb Bush AND Mitt Romney. If that double whammy of RINOness doesn’t raise all kinds of alarm bells, then you are not paying attention.

Exhibit A: Rubio followed his cowardly patron Jeb Bush in Florida by “remaining neutral” in the Florida primary because their guy Romney looked vulnerable.

I picked Jindal. I don’t understand the appeal of Rubio. I don’t dislike him, just don’t know much about him.

dmn1972 on February 27, 2012 at 11:03 AM

Yeah, where is the result of the Palin/Cristie matchup?

You stick with that. Its an anti-Ron Paul 2012 conspiracy.

Hey Patrick – could you test the real electability of Lawn Gnome & put him up against Hank the Cat in the next poll?
