Huckabee surges, Cruz, Ryan
plummet in 2016 presidential poll

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/23/2013 4:44:35 AM

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who suddenly entered the 2016 Republican presidential sweepstakes this month, has surged to the top of those most favored by GOP voters, costing support for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan in a new poll. Of eight potential presidential candidates listed by YouGov/Economist in the most recent survey, Huckabee won the highest favorable rating from Republicans, at 65 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, was dead last with a favorable rating of 47 percent. But it is Christie who still leads the race. Some 18 percent of Republican voters chose Christie as their

Frankly, I don´t like any of the mentioned names. How about Walker who has done something meaningful for his state? Just imagine if the whole country got the benefit.

Too Funny!
Was this poll taken in the newsrooms of America as a joke on Republicans?

Were only "democrats that want to help Republicans" the only people polled?

Or was it taken in DC with only registered DC republicans participating in the poll?

Who knows?

No way Huckabee could surge above Cruz. Ryan yes, anyone could rise above him. Poll must have been taken in DC.

What #3 said.

Just goes to show ya who they´re really afraid of. And it ain´t Paul Ryan.

The Huckster´s OK on TV and should stay there. If there´s one thing for sure, he´s all in on amnesty. The other thing is Big Government.

As many have said previously, polls at this date mean nothing but who is in the recent news. Huckabee´s gotten a lot of attention by leaving his show and dangling an ankle that he might run. Cruz and Ryan haven´t grabbed big headlines in the last few weeks, so they have faded a bit from the fickle public´s consciousness. I agree that the current slate of names will probably not be the ones we will be evaluating as presidential primary season gets closer. There is plenty of time and we are fortunate to have a lot of good people from whom to choose.

Because of his TV show, he probably enjoys more name recognition as this point. ANd that is all these polls mean at this time. Huckabee does deserve the attention of the base. His goobernoship was limited by a solid hardcore Fascist state Senate and house. Arkyland didn´t make the change for Fascist run sate until 2012. Huckabee had to work with a solid Fascist House and Senate that could easily override his vetoes. Yet he managed to lower taxes, unload some sill regulation and help move this state towards a more rational,less Fascist controlled state. Getting elected as a rebublican in this state prior to Obambi was dang near impossible. Yet Huckabee did it and did goobern as conservative as he could.

This "poll" is from something called YouGov. Here is how the poll is done:

As a member of the YouGov panel you will be part of a global community of people who share their opinions in return for points and rewards. It couldn´t be easier: we email you a survey link, you complete the survey at your convenience and earn points for doing so! You can redeem your points for great rewards.

Early polls are meaningless. That said, Huckabee would be a top tier candidate. He has strong evangelical support. He´s able to weave an engaging populist narrative combining humble roots, his time as governor and his faith background. If he runs he´ll be the early front runner. Plus he has the advantage of having organized and run a national campaign. 2016 could be a very interesting political season for both parties.

Huckabee may poll welll w ith Baptistsa nd other evangelicals, but many of those people stayed home in 2012, because they wouldnt vote for a Mormon, (even though Romney wasnt running to be chief High priest of the USA,...., he was running for president/ CEO. ). Romney is far from perfect, but he woulda been a d*mned sight better than the magic marxist. Perios.
There is NO PERFECT candidate in either side. But repubs had better field some smart, ARTICULATE candidate who can master electronic campaigning and have a raoid repsinse team to address every voley made against him or her by the Killary Org. She is a hag, but te lofo koolaid slurpers will turn out en masse once again to "make history" and have the hag as our first female amd lesbian president.

Waking Up to the Russian Threat

Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

Cancellation of Tomahawk Puts
American Navy On Perilous Course

The Obama Administration will be adding insult with its cancellation of production of the Navy’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. These decisions followed by just weeks the decision to reclassify two hospital ships, 10 coastal patrol craft and a ferry boat as “capital warships.” The Tomahawk decision is particularly troubling, as the cruise missile has for years been the workhorse of presidents seeking to deliver limited, precise, stand-off military responses. During the 2011 Libyan crisis, the Navy flung 220 Tomahawks in support of operations. We launched more than 1,100 at Kosovo. About 100 of these missiles are used in an average

Are government statistics deteriorating?

My American Enterprise Institute colleague Nick Eberstadt provides a reminder that the federal government has been a pioneer in producing useful and reliable statistics. It began with the Constitution´s unprecedented and, in Eberstadt´s words, “truly revolutionary” requirement that a census of population be conducted at regular intervals and that the number of representatives each state would have in the House of Representatives would be based on it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the quality and quantity of government statistics has been deteriorating. Eberstadt decries in particular the government’s “hastily devised ‘federal poverty measure’ unveiled in 1965,” which

On top of rising premiums, Obamacare taxes are adding hundreds of dollars per year onto customers’ costs, according to new study from the American Action Forum. Those who braved the health-care law’s exchanges will have to pay an extra $354 on average in 2014, reports the free-market D.C.-based think tank, just due to seven taxes included in Obamacare. The vast majority of the country covered by employer-sponsored health insurance will be forced to pay a somewhat lower tab of $196 to cover the taxes. Those with self-funded employer-sponsored insurance are exempt from several of the largest culprits and will have the lowest

DURHAM, NC — A drug trafficker who worked for Al Sharpton’s nonprofit in the 1980s said that despite the preacher’s denials, he was eager to get a slice of the lucrative drug deal captured on FBI surveillance video. “It was greed. He just wanted money,” Robert Curington, 72, told The Post during a two-day interview at his North Carolina home, detailing for the first time how Sharpton stepped into the FBI’s trap — and was then forced to become a federal informant. Sharpton has said he showed interest in the drug deal only because he feared the undercover agent was

Kathleen Sebelius is getting out of Dodge, and the timing of her resignation as Secretary of Health and Human Services makes l sense. Though the 7.1 million figure for ObamaCare sign-ups is overblown, it provides the proper political cover for her to leave. By leaving now, Mrs. Sebelius also denies the GOP a juicy target in its campaign to retake the Senate this year. For keeping the Senate Democratic is vital to the president if he hopes to keep the GOP from taking apart ObamaCare.

Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, and Rachel Maddow is right to not be happy about it, not one little bit. For once, I completely agree with Maddow’s analysis. This surprise resignation presents Republicans with an unexpected opportunity to refocus the conversation on Obamacare’s negatives, offers a chance to force vulnerable Senate Democrats to take a hard vote on Obamacare six months before the midterms, and serves to disrupt what had been a positive few days of media spin for the health care law into another conversation about its many failings.

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.
