Hot Air Survey: July VP Results

posted at 12:06 am on July 12, 2012 by

For the second survey in a row, Bobby Jindal takes the top spot in the VP preference poll. Marco Rubio again takes second. Paul Ryan moves into third ahead of fourth-place holding Allen West, and Condoleezza Rice holds on to fifth.

Readers are still pretty high on Mitt Romney’s chances.

Here’s how the electoral vote predictions were distributed. 270 would be a Romney win.

Demographics were consistent, as is almost always the case. Representative sample of the readership.

Questions? You can find me here.

Hey, boy and girls out there…remember all the “hoo hah” out there about a certain President’s qualifications on the basis of the Natural Born Citizen requirement?

Remember how there was curiously a push, oh, about 10 years ago, on the Republican side, to set aside this qualifier for a certain swoon-at-the-moment Schwarzennegger?

GROW UP, kiddies. If you don’t want to be responsible for making yet another part of our Constitution null and void, both Jindal and Rubio must be taken out of consideration for the job.

Unlike psych-warfare, facts get in the way of the tactic that if you repeat something often enough it becomes true.

It’s interesting that the top 6 will doubtfully be given the nod as VP. I’m guessing “other” will eventually win out.

Best bet out there is a previous governor who is used to the limelight, has good solids but won’t hurt the ticket with “controversial” stuff which Romney likes to avoid.

This pretty much describes Tim Pawlenty unfortunately, which won’t excite conservatives much.

/sigh

Interesting to note that Portman, the one all of the establishment elite and media is drooling over only got 2%. HAHAHAHA

Well, the: state your “fact”, punk. Otherwise, STFU.

You want to open up the floodgate to Presidential runs by anchor babies of illegals?
Then, go riiiiiight ahead, chump.

It is a fact that neither Jindal nor Rubio are natural born citizens.

If you would get a real education you wouldn’t be so ignorant.
