Alaska poll: Sen. Begich
popular, Palin unpopular

Seattle Post-Intelligencer [WA], by Joel Connelly

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/9/2013 3:43:49 PM

Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat in Republican-leaning Alaska, is sure to be targeted by Republicans in 2014, his seat a “must” pickup if the GOP hopes to retake control of Congress’ upper chamber. But Begich is showing surprising strength and popularity, according to a new survey of the 49th State by Public Policy Polling. He has a 49 percent job approval rating, with only 39 percent disapproving of the job he’s doing. And Begich leads a bevy of likely Republican challengers. He has a big, big lead — 54-38 percent —

Comments:
Calling Karl Rove. Hopefully he can find a candidate who can hold on to that seat. I wasn´t aware Palin had any interest in it. Does she? The comments after the article are brutal.

Lefties really are insane. I have yet to hear any liberal explain why they hate Sarah Palin so much...other than their usual drivel.

If so, then the people of Alaska need to have their heads examined. But maybe that was made clear when they elected Murkowski.

Alaska is a pork obsessed state. They enjoyed Stevens bacon for years and years. I think they just got over $200 million in the sandy bill,that probably has a lot to do with Begich´s popularity.Miller was probably anti-pork and why the left rallied around Murkowski.

I´m pretty sure alaska gets more per capita federal money than any other state,the same with Hawaii.

#4, I think part of it had to do with the fact that he used state computers to transact personal business. Now that´s not so bad, but his response to the accusation was terrible: He said that he wasn´t going to say what he´d used the computers for, and that he wasn´t going to talk about it. Probably most people assumed the worst, if incorrectly. And let´s face it--the Yasir Arafat beard didn´t help.

#5, Alaska does indeed get more federal money than it pays in taxes. It has for many, many years.

No, the people of Alaska used to love her, but the massive smear campaign and lies from the left that are still going on 5 years later affected people´s perceptions of her. Even this rag, the "post-intelligence", lied here and said she "quit to make money". NO, she didn´t "quit" her job as Governor and she certainly didn´t do it to make money! She was forced to make a decision to resign for the good of Alaska because of thousands of frivolous lawsuits and inquiries that were tying up all the resources and making it impossible for any state business to get done. She knew she couldn´t be effective as long as she was a target for the left and so she believed her Lieutenant Governor could better carry on her plans and turned it over to him. I hate lying leftists and their evil ways.

Sarah is a great person and The Tea Party a great movement. We lost to a Community Organizer, that´s very bad for the country.

The comments are just the way you like them, right, OP. Same old groupies that bashed Palin, praised Romney as most electable now holding fast to giving Rove too much credit. Now, once again, who did he support that is new in the Senate?
Negative comments after the article are the same old jugear supporters that have been paid to troll any article which mentions Palin. Their facts are so distorted it becomes laughable to see the same remarks repeatedly.

PPP is a Democrat polling outfit from North Carolina and the Seattle PI is an online newspaper that used to be a mainstream daily broadsheet until they went online only in order to avoid going belly up. The whole article should be taken with about a barrel of sodium chloride and treated as left-wing propaganda.

Begich was one of those accidents of history that got elected because Ted Stevens was in the middle of a federal corruption prosecution during the 2008 election campaign.

I think New Mexico might be the federal pork queen among the states. NM brings in about 2.20 federal dollars for every dollar it sends to DC.

The well-named Post-Intelligence (i.e., after intelligence has gone) uses a far left polling outfit, PPP, to offer us this sophomoric headline: Begich Popular, Palin Unpopular (Ugh Ugh).

Cub reporter Connelly continues his lame, biased reporting in the excerpted paragraph below.

"He has a big, big lead — 54-38 percent — over former Gov. and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Palin was recently jettisoned from her pundit’s position by the Fox News Channel. She quit as governor in mid-term to make money."

Begich has "a big, big lead;" "Palin was...jettisoned from her pundit´s position;" and the new and startling ´fact´ that "she quit as governor in mid-term to make money." I´ll bet his copy went over big in the PI (see para one here) ´newsroom.´

A few more months of Obama, the Democrats, and the trampling on our Constitution, and Sarah could win an Alaskan senatorial seat by a landslide...despite what the PPP poll would have us believe.

#7 I suspect if there was an anti-Palin article in a school newsletter in some tiny town in West Virginia certain posters would spend all day finding it and then rub their hands with glee as they post it. Getting over it is impossible for some people, it´s called Palin "Derangement" Syndrome for a reason.

If only such excessive zeal was put into pulling down this corrupt administration! It never ceases to amaze me how people put such energy into bringing down someone who´s supposedly in their own party, and yet expect that their favorite be supported by all. It´s called hypocrisy. Unfortunately, the Dems don´t have a monopoly on it.

I guess they´ll never stop, it´ll be obscure articles about biased polls about races Palin´s not even entering for the next God-knows-how-many years. Some people really need to get a life.

Luckily for me I dont look to polls to tell me who to like or not. I dont look to media talking heads or party leaders or posters here.
If I knew Sarah I would probably like her. I will support her if she runs for anything. She has earned my admiration and respect.
As for the Republicans, I quit their party last summer because they didn´t earn those things.

There was as much suspected funny business in Murkowski´s write in vote as there seems to be in some of the precincts that voted over 100% for Obama!

....And, Begich left Anchorage in sorry financial shape when he finished his time as mayor.The unions came out fine though.... Many doubt Begich would have even gotten close to beating Senator Stevens if Stevens hadn´t been accused of so much wrong-doing,by the Dems, that he was cleared of AFTER the election.

#33 is right about Connelly. He´s been around a while and is a far-left nutcase. Unfortunately his background of 35 years is not 35 years of experience but 1 year experience 35 times. On second thought, maybe he still is a cub reporter. He would be qualified as a journalist if he could find out where to get a pen and something to write on. As it is, he is content to report for a paper that doesn´t have any paper.

# 9 may be the only poster who actually read the article.
The article discusses Republicans trying to get the Senate seat currently held by Begich.
This seat is a Republican must win and it´s going to be a tough slog, because Begich is not a conventional Democrat and holds views popular with Alaskans.
The article analyzes all the potential Republicans who might challenge Begich and how they poll.
Their pluses and minuses.
Palin is now free to run for the Senate from Alaska ,
so her name was included in the poll.
The poll breakdown was 21 % Democrat , 32 % Republican and 46 % Indy .

When posters don´t read the articles, mayhem results and the OPs get smeared.

Lucianne is not supposed to be an echo chamber so there will be posts from many sources known to lean left. Most either read them and consider the source or move on. Quietly. A few feel a need to post a nasty aimed at the poster. Not fair.

The posting of an article should not have to include a disclaimer that it does not necessarily represent the views of the poster, nor should those views be assumed. We all know what the word ASSUME can represent.

To put it more simply, if you don´t like what´s posted, how about posting something you do like? The complainers are noticeably deficient in the posting department.

I would vote for Sarah Palin for any office she chooses to pursue. Sarah Palin is a gutsy patriotic lady, happily married, a doting mother, which irks the left to no end.

Compare energetic, bright eyed, beautiful Sarah Palin to washed up, obese, uncaring Hillary Clinton. Sarah looks better in no makeup and fatigues than Hillary looks after a day at the spa.

Doesn´t matter what he does for Alaska, it´s small compared to the damage for the United States since he ends up voting the liberal agenda.

And the democrats are AGAINST oil, and I suspect will turn their sights on the cruise industry soon enough.

#38, the biggest difference between Sarah and the hildebeest is in their hearts and noone except San Fran Nan has a blacker, harder heart than the Hildebeest. Sarah has a heart for the best in people born out by her love of God Country and Family. BTW, the Seattle PI became a very second rate paper, heavily in debt it went online only, definitely not a trustworthy source of anything other than propaganda.

Obama has given the total US SS database to his campaign... and now they pre-vote for everyone. Over the next 18 mo´s, they need to create the illusion that red states are becoming blue, otherwise we´ll be shocked when they win it all.

Pre-voting for Americans caused many swing districts to record over 100% voter participation. Holder is trying to pass a mandate that all Americans are automatically registered to vote, so they are less likely to screw up again.

The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side."

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
