Hot Air Survey Results: Mississippi, Alabama and Hawaii Edition

posted at 11:24 pm on March 12, 2012 by

We have a new leader in the Hot Air Survey, and this time, it’s Mitt Romney. Romney leads for the first time, taking 46% of the overall vote. He’s followed by Newt Gingrich at 26%, Rick Santorum at 25%, and Ron Paul at 4%. Participation was lower this round, with 1705 votes cast.

Over the course of the 30 surveys we’ve conducted so far, we have had eight lead changes and seven leaders. The order of leaders thus far follows (date in parentheses is the month the candidate took the lead):

  1. Chris Christie (November 2010)
  2. Sarah Palin (December 2010)
  3. Rick Perry (September 2011)
  4. Herman Cain (October 2011)
  5. Newt Gingrich (November 2011)
  6. Rick Perry (January 2012)
  7. Newt Gingrich (January 2012)
  8. Rick Santorum (February 2012)
  9. Mitt Romney (March 2012)

 

Hot Air readers expect by a slight plurality that Romney will win Mississippi, that Gingrich will win Alabama, and that Romney will easily win Hawaii.

I would argue that there is a drastic cognitive dissonance going on with a large proportion of those self identifying as fiscally conservative.

I challenge you to make a poll of the following sort.

Start asking about their level of conservatism, Fiscal, Social and Defense Hawk.

Then ask about getting rid of social security with in the next 16 years. Getting rid of medicare, medicaid with in the next 16 years. Cutting the military. A good idea would be to have the poll look to see how many people initially picked a very fiscally conservative position and later, after reading the rest of the question chose to go back an revise it downwards.

Way too many on this site are so far from their actions in their self appraisals it is sickening.

Yes! We are about the wrap up this primary so we can focus on exposing the failed leadership of President Obama! I can’t wait to see the Obama Misery Index rolled out and the videos the campaign will be unveiling to show the American people how terrible President Obama has been.

Yes, but wasn’t the time allotted for voting also shorter?

It was on the shorter end of our spectrum, but the result was as I call it “sliding off” as Romney voters continued to vote but everyone else had apparently stopped. Have to use my best judgment in those situations.
