Poll: Americans Want Sarah
Palin to Shut Up the Most

Mediaite, by Tina Daunt

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 4:15:22 PM

A poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal, NBC News, and Annenberg finally gave a numerical answer to a question we at Mediaite often ask ourselves: Out of all political figures that should pipe down just a bit, which one should do it immediately? Answer: Sarah Palin. Overwhelmingly Sarah Palin, says America. 52% of surveyed American adults want Sarah Palin to “be quiet,” according to the poll taken between June 30 and July 7 (Snip) 45% of respondents added that they wanted Jesse Jackson to be quiet, too; followed by Dick Cheney (42%), Newt Gingrich (39%), Al Gore (37%), and

She would be the last on my list to shut up. She is the only political type in the whole cesspool I trust.
Far nearer the top would be McCain and Boehner.

I doubt this is true. The only person I have heard anyone comment about not want to hears or see and wish he´d shut up is Obama

"you didn´t build that", "as a matter of fact", I didn´t know about that until I read it in the paper". "You can keep your doctor",for the first time folks will have coverage", "we leave no one behind" (we have a Marine in Mexico in prison), etc. Many want him to go away and shut up and never be heard of again. Ever!

Wall Street Journal, NBC News, and Annenberg are 3 strikes against the poll. I´m 100% sure the real opinions are in the opposite order. Numbers don’t lie but the media always does.

The poll conducted at our last neighborhood BBQ/pool party contradicts that one with scientific certainty, margin of error nil. It was a three way tie between Barack, Michelle, and John Boehner. Surprisingly, the person people wanted most to keep talking was Hillary.

I wonder about polls. So many people have cell phones and caller ID and they do not answer calls from people they do not know. In addition to that lying to pollsters has become a bit of a fun game. Every time I read a poll about a stupid subject like this one I wonder who answered their questions.

I think the people who conducted the poll were trying to "shape" what people think/want so as to offset Obama´s dismal approval numbers. This is not a poll that I would take seriously, especially since NBC and Annenberg are part of it. Just remember, Obama´s best friend, Bill Ayers, and Obama were part of the Annenberg Challenge.

My observations:
1. Palin has said nothing offensive or outrageous. not stupidities such as Biden and Reid. Why should she not speak out since we supposedly have freedome of speech?

2. A segment of the population is afraid of what she says.

3. She is effective. If she were not effective, they would not care about her speaking out.

I actually think most people in America today want to exist in a state of denial. They know something bad is happening to their country, but prefer to focus on anything but the truth.
Sarah Palin speaks the truth very clearly, Dick Cheney speaks the truth very clearly, and Ted Cruz speaks the truth very clearly. People don´t want to hear it, they will do anything to avoid the truth so they can enjoy their mundane lives.

Keep talking Sarah. You say what needs to be said. Although the black skinny boy child is not likely to be removed from office by impeachment, there will come a time when even his ardent admirers will be ready to boot his skinny booty out of our Oval Office. Impeachment, though a pleasant thought, will never happen to this Teflon piece. Now...if he were a tea pot...

DENVER — State health officials confirmed a tenth case of paralysis affecting children who have recently had respiratory infections. Medical experts made the announcement Monday at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. Dr. Sam Dominguez says outside of the respiratory problems, there is no common link between cases. “There are no commonalities as far as where they live, schools or day cares they attend.” The hospital says before Monday, four of the children admitted tested positive for enterovirus 68, and four others for the rhinovirus (which causes the common cold). The other was not tested. The patients range in age from

The Department of Agriculture, the agency that administers the food stamp program, has announced that it will spend $31.5 million on a new program that will promote a healthy diet for recipients of the assistance. The National Institute of Food and Agriculture, a division of the Department of Agriculture, is developing the program to urge recipients of the SNAP food stamp program to choose more fruits and fresh foods. "Too many struggling families do not have adequate access to nutritious food," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said on Monday.

Mr. Perry, who crashed out of the 2012 race for the GOP nomination, said he had been coming off back surgery at the time and simply wasn’t ready to run for the most influential position in the world. “I did not prepare,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I was a bit arrogant.” Mr. Perry, who’s finishing up 14 years as governor, is making the media rounds despite

Sen. Harry Reid Playing Major

WASHINGTON- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has twice won elections he was supposed to lose. If Democrats maintain control of the Senate in November, much of the credit will go to the wily Nevada Democrat. Reid is not on the ballot this year, but his position as majority leader depends on Democrats denying Republicans the net six seats they need to retake the Senate. By all accounts he is working as single-mindedly toward that goal as any of his endangered incumbents. With his stooped shoulders, monotone delivery and occasionally impolitic remarks, Reid, 74, does not shine on the campaign trail. He

Rep. Donna F. Edwards is stooped in a corner fiddling with the sound system. Her event, guest-starring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is about to start. There is barely room to move in the small Hyattsville bakery, and side conversations are bouncing off the walls. A microphone would be helpful when the speeches begin, and Edwards, who likes to fix stuff, is not above squatting in a fuchsia frock to try to get the job done. Almost as soon as she unseated an incumbent congressman in a Democratic primary in 2008, Edwards became all about pushing out the Democratic Party’s

With the dissolution of the Obama administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East and elsewhere, President Obama is talking as fast as he can. Obama set some kind of a land speed record for double-talk in his interview with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes last night, highlighted by Obama’s passing the buck for his misunderestimation of ISIS to the Director of National Intelligence et al. That hasn’t gone down too well, in part because it conflicts with what one could learn from following the headlines over the past year or two. Empirical reality belies Obama’s buck-passing. Moreover, those who have

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes.
