Poll: Sarah Palin had highest favorability
rating among GOP primary voters

Breitbart, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:philsner, 1/30/2014 7:25:41 AM

Though former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was not included in a Public Policy Polling survey of potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders, she was still overwhelmingly the most liked person among Republican primary voters. According to Public Policy Polling: The best liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin who has a 70/20 favorability rating. She´s followed by Huckabee at 64/18, Ryan at 58/18, Paul at 58/21, Bush at 56/18, Cruz at 45/20, and Christie at 40/38. Most of those numbers are similar to what they were a month ago but Christie´s seen a substantial drop

That´s because most people really paying attention know Sarah is just what this country needs - now! She scares the pants off liberals and RINO´s. That should be all any of us need to know about her. I´d vote for her. I won´t vote for pretty much anyone else unless there is a dark horse heading to the gate.

Ok, bring on the poison darts, but it needs saying. Palin couldn´t handle the governorship of a state with a population of less than a million and so she bailed out halfway through her first term. How in the world would anyone believe she could stand up to the challenges in the office of president of the most powerful nation in the world with a population of more than 300 million? It´s a dream, people, but a pipe dream.

I am glad I got set straight on that fact.

All this time I thought Palin resigned because Alaska state law requires the Governor to pay their own legal fees, and Palin could not afford to defend against the frivolous suits brought by the Dems and vengeful GOP Establishment groups.

It must really keep some people awake at night thinking about how Palin and Cruz are more popular than their GOP Establishment heroes.

Plus that FAMILY! It was outrageous what the elites in D.C. pulled on the woman when she ran for VP (who was the real mother, Bristol or Sarah etc.) but then her family comes out looking like the Clampetts to almost help them prove the point. I am a conservative Republican woman who would fry Boehner in hot oil given the chance (along with Brian Williams) but I CERTAINLY do not favor Sarah Palin.

I don´t understand the comments of #18. Sarah´s family seems pretty normal to me. I think Jebediah is one of those "elite" Repubs that the Dems like to mock so much. The only thing I don´t like about Sarah is her voice. I´d get her a voice coach and get her to sound like Barbara Feldon.

With certainty one can see those posters easily swayed by what the ABC/CBS/NBC/MSNBC/CNN and the JOURN-O-LIARS of over 400 strong at the behest of the obama campaign spread daily. Strange a presidential candidate and his minions attacked a Vice-Presidential candidate as much if not more than the opposition presidential candidate. And, it continued!
It continues today!
Gov. Palin´s approval in Alaska at the time of V-P selection was at the 80% approval level as well......must have been doing something right?

I´m not fond of her but I do admire her savvy. She knows what to say to play to the conservative base. She has stage presence and an ability to deliver a good line. I couldn´t see her doing well in a press conference format. She´s already proven to be a disaster in unfriendly interviews. She rambles when she´s not scripted but that only matters if she runs for office again, which I highly doubt.

#18: So, what, exactly IS wrong with her family? So the one daughter got pregnant. You ever deal with a sex crazed 17 year old girl? The important thing is not that she made a mistake as a teenager, but what she did about it. She affirmed life, had the baby who turned out to be a beautiful little boy, dumped the dead beat dad and went on to take responsibility for herself. Would that more people would do that. As for the rest, what´s wrong with them? If you are so judgmental about the Palin family, ever look at your own?

Sarah´s ethics are grounded in scripture. I am among the least qualified to talk about what is appealing to the voting public. However, I will stand my ground on her knowing right from wrong, loving our country and willing to get controversial if that is what it takes to defend our constitution.

And as for her speaking in cliches, ALL politicians speak in cliches. Did you listen to Obama the other night? A cliche fest if there ever was one. Even the sainted Reagan spoke in cliches. The deal is; you whittle everything down to a few understandable points that you repeat over and over. The job for voters is which group of points do you vote for? I´ll vote for the politician who repeats points of self reliance and limited government over the politician who rattles on about class warfare and public assistance.

I would love to see a Dem woman suffer through the endless and ad hominem attacks on Mrs. Palin and her family over the se past few years. Certainly the Obamas would have withered years ago.

Is she perfect, no. But then who is? I will say this. I sincerley belive she loves this country and does (and would have if elcted to higher office) the best interest of this country at heart.

"popular" doesn´t mean "would vote for". She´s certainly likable and obviously is loved by her fans, but so is Loretta Lynn.

I haven´t seen anywhere, any time, that Mrs. Palin has any desire to run for office again. Maybe she´s enjoying a Facebook life. Who is to judge?

#29 She was commenting on his right to freedom of speech, not exactly what he said.
“You know, so many American families have spilled blood and treasure to guarantee Phil Robertson and everybody else’s right to voice their personal opinions and once that freedom is lost, everything is lost in our country.”

Like Phil Robertson, Sarah Palin also has a right to free speech. PLUS, she was asked by several news people for her take on the subject.

He´s been in Congress and currently serves as the governor of Indiana. Scott Walker appears to have considerable integrity as well as a steel spine.

#1, she is NOT a twit. You obviously listen to the establishment (who don´t want reform) and the lamestream media (who are overwhelmingly leftist and do not want reform) for your information to form your opinions. She has a lot of good accomplishments but you probably know nothing of them. I am not a blind supporter of her, in case you wish to pigeon-hole me. But I am tired of people wrongly attacking her--she does NOT deserve it. She has been right about nearly everything she has been attacked on. No, she is not a twit. And anyone who says she is shows that they are ignorant about who she really is. Aria posted a list of her accomplishments back in 2010. I have the list and it is six pages long. If you want to see it, let me know. I am thinking of posting it somewhere where people can see it so I don´t have to repeat myself.

#18 formed his opinion on her family based on the portrayal by the mainstream media and beltway elites. It is all false. But people don´t really care about the truth--even some folks on the right and on this forum.

#9 is continuing to repeat the same lie the left and the establishment RINOs have been making for years now. No, she did not "quit" or "give up" because she "couldn´t handle it" or any such nonsense. She really would have gladly stayed in office and finished her term BUT because her office was bombarded by excessive frivolous lawsuits and FOIA requests as well as other media and legal inquiries, she decided to resign for THE GOOD OF ALASKA. The attacks and inquiries were overwhelming the resources and costing the state to answer. She knew that state business was being hampered by all the attacks on her office and that things were not getting done as they should have. So, she chose to do what was BEST for the people and the state of Alaska (as opposed to doing what was best for her). Also, she knew her Lieutenant Governor had the same vision and agenda that she did so she felt comfortable handing over the office to him to finish conducting business. She SACRIFICED for the good of OTHERS--she was NOT a quitter. I am so sick of the lies, especially when people who are supposed to know better (like on this forum) continue to spread them.

Sarah is actually a pretty smart cookie - who rose to where she she is today on sheer moxie. With the exception of becoming McCain´s VP pick, nobody has given her a thing (and in hindsight she may have prospered more if she had been left alone in Alaska to finish out her term). In fact all the powers-that-be have done is thrown obstacles in her path. Contrast that to the Boy King who has been carried on the backs of the liberal elites every step of the way.

WE get to know other people through communication and many thoughtful Americans identify with what Palin communicates about herself & her views on a variety of subjects. Similarly, Ronald Reagan also communicated directly with the American people and he became one of our 3 best Presidents ever!

We have seen the way Palin handles her own life´s experiences, her encouraging enthusiasm for the USA and that Liberty for which it stands, and we admire & appreciate her insightful voice in the arena. Her expert knowledge particularly of energy policies, her support for our military and passionate support for Constitutional matters of governance, plus her optimism regarding America´s future potential for good on the planet, each merit respect and serious consideration.

We have come to understand Gov. Palin through her communications these past 5-6 years and our first impression has proved to be right: Palin is a winner!!!

#38/39/40- Palin is fortunate to have such an enthusiastic defender and you seem to be a loyal supporter. But, semantics aside, she left her governorship of Alaska under pressure. You say she would have gladly finished her term, but the workers in her office had heard her say many times that she hated her job. And certainly her constituents felt she had abandoned them. Her negatives were sky-high after she left/quit/resigned.

But, Palin has made lemonade, for sure. She´s done well financially and apparently enjoys the position of off-stage kibitzer through Facebook and Twitter. She retains the devotion of a large group of followers and fans.

Good for her. But, it´s nuts to continue to have faith that she will ever be elected to a national office, or even a state office. Those days are behind her.

Palin couldn´t handle the governorship? Where does that idea come from? She was handling it just fine until she became a national news item and was bombarded with frivolous ethics violations claims that were costing her family all of their money and making it difficult for her to give her full attention to her job. She stepped down for the good of her state, not because she couldn´t handle the job. I just don´t get the haters on this site. Why is the name Sarah Palin like a dog whistle to them?

Some supporters of President Obama may be worried about how he and the Democrats are going to fare politically, as the problems of Obamacare continue to escalate and it looks like the Republicans have a chance to win a majority in the Senate. But Democrats may not need to worry so much. Republicans may once again come to the rescue of the Democrats, by discrediting themselves and snatching defeat from the very jaws of victory. The latest bright idea among Republicans inside the Beltway is a new version of amnesty that is virtually certain to lose votes among the Republican base and

Davis was responding to a blog post from the daughter of former Gov. Sarah Palin, who wrote last week amid questions about the timeline of Davis’s personal biography, slamming her for allegedly leaving her kids behind with her ex-husband after finishing law school. “Gosh, children are sooo inconvenient, huh? I’m glad my mother didn’t put motherhood on the shelf when she was elected to City Council, then became our mayor, then governor,” Palin wrote,

President Barack Obama’s deputies have quadrupled the number of signatures that petitioners on the administration’s “We the People” website must collect to get an official response from the White House, following a series of popular, provocative and disrespectful signature drives by his critics. Some of the petitions sought approval for states to secede after Obama’s re-election, while others called on the White House to disavow executive orders that restrict gun rights, or to deport CNN’s British-born, progressive host Piers Morgan.

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. 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?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
