Gallup: With Huckabee out, Palin, Gingrich, Romney lead the GOP

Posted by joshpainter on May 18, 2011

– by Josh Painter
A new Gallup analysis of its most recent polling data finds that with Mike Huckabee out of the race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are the leaders in Republicans’ preferences:

Romney and Palin are essentially tied; Gingrich does slightly less well even though he and Romney have nearly identical name identification.

Ron Paul and Bachmann are the only other potential candidates with name recognition above 50%. They are also next in line in terms of Republican nomination support.


Palin’s support is the most intense. A higher percentage of Republicans have strongly favorable opinions than is the case for the other two, giving her a slightly higher overall Positive Intensity Score despite her higher strongly unfavorable percentage.

Gingrich and Romney have similar Positive Intensity Scores.

The overall differences in Republicans’ views of these three well-known candidates are not large.


Palin, who has given no indication of whether she will run for the nomination, has very high name identification, is near the top of Republicans’ nomination preferences, and has a higher Positive Intensity Score than any other well-known candidate. Palin thus must be considered one of the GOP leaders at this point. Romney and Gingrich are also well-known. Of the two, Romney is slightly better positioned at this point due to his higher ranking in Gallup’s trial heats.

Roberts: Sarah Palin Really Can Become President

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 14, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

Irish Central breaks down the new CNN poll and discusses why Governor Palin can indeed become President of the United States.

Patrick Roberts writes:

Yes, children Sarah Palin really can become president of the United States.

Take a look at yesterday’s CNN poll.

It shows Mitt Romney just three points ahead of Irish American Palin right before the kickoff for the 2012 republican nomination which begins the day after the November mid-terms.

That three points is within the margin of error.

It is also within the margin of error of those pundits who say that Palin has no chance to be selected.

They are dead wrong and this poll bears that out

This poll says otherwise, as do a slew of results, including last week’s primary in Colorado which showed the grassroots activists in the party are not going to settle for the status quo and whoever head office is pushing.

That is bad news indeed, for Mitt Romney who is the anointed one.

He is a very skilled politician, who was an excellent governor of Massachusetts and did an amazing job with the Olympic Winter Games in his native Utah.

By right he should be the front runner.

But he’s stuck in neutral, not ever drawing the kind of love from the grassroots that Palin can engender just by showing up.

Americans are mad as hell over what has happened to their economy and that throws the 2012 race wide open at this point.

Palin has a realistic shot if she decides to run.

Right now she’d be my favorite to win the Republican nomination.

I’ve written this before and now the CNN poll bears it out.

In this current deeply unsettled political climate President Palin is not far-fetched at all.

Remember you read it here.

I may not share the same positive sentiments regarding Mitt Romney as does the author of this article. However, this isn’t about Romney. It’s about Palin, and those who continue to dismiss her as a potential 2012 winner are in denial and may very well be in for a great awakening.

Gallup Poll, WSJ: Governor Palin is Tipping Scales

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 17, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

A Gallup Poll released yesterday indicates that Governor Palin, with 76% favorability among Republicans, tops other possible GOP presidential contenders:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the best known and most positively rated of five possible contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Her 76% favorable rating among Republicans is higher than those for Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Bobby Jindal.


Potential candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination are crisscrossing the nation, making speeches, appearing on television, raising money for their PACs, and in general doing everything short of formally announcing their candidacies as they test the 2012 waters.

Palin has the strongest name identification and positives among Republicans at this juncture. Only 4% say they don’t know enough about her to have an opinion, and, by more than 3-to-1, those opinions are positive rather than negative.

While it is not certain what Governor Palin’s 2012 plans are, one thing is certain: she has clearly been focused on 2010 and helping turn things around in Washington, DC. Her influence in this endeavor is undeniable.

Today, Jonathan Weisman of The Wall Street Journal had this to say:

Through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has burst back into the political spotlight this month, while her family life has once again become part of the broader American conversation.

But it is Ms. Palin’s groundwork on behalf of candidates across the country, along with her continued fund-raising abilities, that has Republican leaders and political strategists wondering whether she is gearing up for a presidential bid in 2012.

Ms. Palin’s intentions remain unclear, and unstated. She declined to comment through her political-action committee.

But her influence is undeniable: On Sunday, SarahPAC disclosed contributions of at least $87,500 to Republican candidates she has endorsed, and a tantalizing $210,000 she has spent on consultants of her own.

Ms. Palin also appears to have honed her pitch. Last week, SarahPAC posted a “Mama Grizzlies” video online aimed at reaching out to women voters. In the clip, women carried signs such as “I am not the ‘Angry Mob.’ I am an angry tax-bled ‘Hockey Mom.’ ” Political experts said the video—with its high production values and campaign-like blue hues—was impressive.

She has also been judicious with her political endorsements, for instance backing Nikki Haley for governor in South Carolina despite rumors of scandal surrounding the candidate, and Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate in California over tea-party favorite Chuck DeVore.

Ms. Palin’s backing was seen as important to both candidates’ victories—particularly in Ms. Haley’s case—bolstering Ms. Palin’s political clout and boosting her among women.

“A sign of Palin’s political maturity and calculation is that her endorsements have become more strategic than ideological. She’s not just picking people who are compatible, she’s picking candidates who can win and, therefore, increase her power base,” said Mark McKinnon, a former media adviser to President George W. Bush.

Read the rest of Mr. Weisman’s article here.

While some media personalities and other talking heads repeatedly state that Governor Palin’s influence is non-existent, those who are attentive, astute, and honest know otherwise. I’ll leave it at this: whatever Governor Palin’s 2012 ambitions are or are not, right now she’s displaying a clear understanding of how to motivate, fundraise, and heavily tip the scales in the right direction–and that’s exactly the kind of impact America needs.
