Even the Daily Kos Pollster Shows Governor Palin Has Cut Obama’s Ohio Lead By 38% and Palin Leads the GOP Field in Texas

Even the Daily Kos pollster finds that Governor Palin has cut the lead that Obama held over her in Ohio by 38%, even though the sample includes ten percent more Democrats than Republicans. She pretty much wins the same percentage of the vote as Republican Party hack Mitt "peacetime" Romney. Her net favorable rating among Ohio Republicans is up 5 points while her net favorable rating among moderates is up 21 points since the last Ohio poll that the Kos pollster conducted. She had trailed Obama by 17 among independents and now she leads Obama by one among indies in Ohio.

She also leads the GOP field in Texas even when you include the trio of Trump/Huckabee/Bachmann in the poll. It’s tough to see how Rick Perry can get into this race when he’s losing so soundly in his home state. As for the argument that Perry’s numbers would improve once he’s actually seen as a candidate, that argument would also help Palin’s numbers considering that the media continues to claim she’ll not run. Since Palin is already starting from a larger base of support than Perry, she’d benefit more from being seen as a candidate once she’s officially as a candidate.

    Sarah Palin is wildly popular in Texas (this poll only scratches the surface)!  Game On!

    • ernst1776

      I believe Sarah Palin is wildy popular everywhere.  My sister who is a smart, yet semi-informed person when it comes to current events, will support Sarah Palin in a heart beat.  But she doesn’t think Sarah has any interest at all in running for president.  And I think she is not alone.

      • fb274

        The minds might be changed if they are referred to PalinTV to watch the Fox Business and News programs of last week.

      • TexasRayGunner

        I think you are right – Sarah is popular everywhere, but much of her support is stealth – and many do not realize just how likely she is to run – once she announces, the naysayers and the uninformed are going to be quite surprised and many will instantly becomes supporters!

        • Norcalo

          I’m a stealth supporter in a left leaning area. I bet there are more. And no one talks about the (let us say) Identity Politics card, which will automatically be played if she wins the R nomination, to wit:  first major party woman presidential candidate. As 50+ per cent of us are female, this has the potential to completely swamp the color identity politics by which Obama profited.

      • Vorlath

        I think this is a plan started by the liberals in the hopes that her poll numbers would dwindle, but it backfired. I’m not hearing this meme much anymore because if Palin does throw her hat in the ring, how big is her undisclosed support on TOP of what her support is right now? The very fact that she has undisclosed support should be VERY terrifying for any opponent.

    • jeffo1

      BRAVO TEXAS…….quite possibly the Heart of America…..They know Integrity when they see it.


      • Carmelo Junior

        I hope that by the time Texas GOP primary arrives, Sarah had already clinched the nomination.

        • quidam65

          Ours is so late in most cases that’s the case.  2008 was an odd one since the GOP race was all but done while the Dems were still battling it out.

      • Carmelo Junior

        I did not see Chris Wallace jump in Cain’s clueness about foreign affairs , nor did I see any pundit slamming this clown. Wallace did not ask him if he was "qualified" to be POTUS. Why? Because they know this clown has no chance and Palin does.

      LOL!  Is that 2008??  Are we sure it’s not photo shopped or doesn’t have some sort of meaning?  Please tell me he’s not THAT bad–although we know he already is. 

    • fb274

      Rush just pointed out the date o’bozo signed was 5/24/08. Would be great if it were May of 2008 as some of the idiots who voted for this non-entity might have had enough sense not to mark his name on the ballot.  Oh, to be able to go back to the good old days.

    • Steven

      Now imagine if that were Palin? But with Obama, oh no its a mistake. 2008 was a year he was very fond of, etc. But for Palin, we would have a SNL skit, blogs across the internet proclaiming she is stupid, stand up comedians deployed to make fun her, "serious" news anchors questioning if a person who doesn’t know the year we’re in can be trusted with the presidency, and on and on. For Obama this is a one day story, for Palin it would be a continuation of the narrative promulgated by the Elites/Media since 2008 to portray Palin as a royal dunce.

      • Rogue2012andbeyond

        So true…..but we and FOX, Tea Parties, Conservatives should not let this be a one day thing.  We should say and repeat and grind it in to all if the president doesn’t know the year he is in can he be trusted with the presidency, etc….

    It was really nice until he got the date wrong by three years. Granted, 2008 was a great year for him, and we might try to live it for as long as possible, too, if we were him. Also, though, he may have had a stroke.See more here: President Obama Has No Idea What Year It Is — Daily Intel

      That was hilarious.

      Could we make a bargain with him — he can keep 2008 if only he’ll resign in 2011? I suppose we could sell it to him as a winning move in his eleven-dimensional chess game.

  • MaMcGriz

    Smart Alec high-centered himself for all the world to see in Ireland. It seems fittingly symbolic for him to be labeled and displayed so accurately at this particular time.

    I see he’s now appointed himself someone to come after all of us who dare to call him out and who see him for what and who he truly is. One can only imagine the desperation they feel when they read a report like this one by Ian.

    I had to laugh when I saw Peter Fonda’s comments at the Cannes Festival. If you hurry you might still find it up at Drudge.

    I think we’d better resume the Depends shipments. 

    • AmsterdamExpat

      That O thinks it’s still 2008 just might have something to do with it …

      And P. Fonda’s rant was pretty amusing.

  • Quiet_Righty

    Ian: She wins the same percentage of the vote as Republican Party hack Mitt “peacetime” Romney.

    A suggestion: Give us the facts, then editorialize elsewhere, maybe after all the quotes, or start a new anti-Romney thread.

  • Blunttalker

    Ian, when it suits you, you report gleefully on the polls, when Palin’s poll numbers are bad, you dismiss the polls. The hypocrisy on this site stinks. No wonder you do not tolerate any dissenting view. If anyone says anything that does not praise Palin, they are promptly banned and their comments removed. What are you creating here? is the objective of this site merely to generate praise singers and yes men and women? how ridiculous can you guys be.

  • PalinPrez

    Am I the only one who is getting tired of subject lines that start with "Even…"  Really.  Who cares what the libtards think?  Let’s remind ourselves of what Governor Palin stated in her letter to freshman Republicans.

    "When the left in the media pat you on the back, quickly reassess where you are and readjust, for the liberals’ praise is a warning bell you must heed. Trust me on that."

    Come on, C4P writers, let’s do away with this "Even.." non sense.

    • RefudiateGOPe

      No one forces you to read them or to even visit here.  Ian brings a great deal to this site and if he wants to use the word "even" or wants to use the word "hack" occasionally,  it’s OK by me.  Either accept it, or take the alternative and the alternative is not belly-aching about Ian’s choice of words.

    Is it also due to Kasich (sp?) doing a great job for the GOP?

    Red State was touting Texas cutting their budget…what’s the story why Perry and Christie not doing well?

    • Guest

      Why?  Because Sarah is the whole package.  She has a proven record AND she can do the things that those other guys can’t do.  Raise boatloads of money AND get the crowds of people excited!!!  People may like to listen to Christie’s townhalls…but can he draw 100,000 and get them to yell and scream for him?  Uhhhhh….nope.  Sarah has the ability to do what none of these other guys can do…beat Obama by using celebrity!!!  Didn’t Obama beat McCain by using HIS celebrity and "Yes We Can"????

      • John Hitchcock

        Oh, Christie could possibly get that sort of number and that sort of reaction.  But he’s a squish with a pair.  Very strange combination and likely why he had been such a major hit among the YouTube virals.  He hits some issues very hard and hits them mostly right, but at the heart, he’s far too Statist.  Second Amendment weakness.  Supreme Court nominee.  Refusal to strip excessive bargaining rights from Public Employee Unions.  The list goes on.

        Christie is great for New Jersey.  I would love to have 10 more Governer Christies.  But just 10 more.  Put 9 of them in New England and 1 of them in California.  The rest of the country needs Conservatism with a set and not Squish with a pair.

        As far as the ‘Cuda’s money-raising powers… she’s not the type to go begging for money, so that puts her at a disadvantage.  She’s the enemy of the Statist Republican machine, so that puts her at a money-raising disadvantage.  Her supporters are less-than-wealthy, so that puts her at a money-raising disadvantage.  I fully expect her to have fewer funds than other Republicans in the Primary and much fewer funds than Obama in the General.  But she’s used to that.

        Don’t get me wrong.  She’s going to have some serious money-bombs when she enters the race.  But her total take won’t be as high as someone like Mittens, who is the Big Government Republican dream (and the dream of Democrats looking to beat another patsy).  But what she has going for her that other candidates don’t… a very large and very active base, a clear message that clearly contrasts the Socialist Democrat positions, and a record any candidate would love to stand on.

    • John Hitchcock

      Being from Ohio (44 years) and recently moved to Texas (early 2010), I know a thing or two about John Kasich.  He’s the real deal, a no-nonsense individual.  But with Ohio, it’s really swing.  Kasich is not the standard Republican for Ohio.  You get Statist Republican or anyone with a D after the name.  Except for the occasional quality like Kasich.  (Remember, Ohio has DeWine and Voinovich.)  I think I’ll write more in an article on my blog in a bit.  But Ohio is stacked up to favor Democrats over Republicans, and yet Ohio is a serious swing state.  For Sarahcuda to be jumping that fast in Ohio is saying something, indeed.

      As far as whether Sarahcuda is running, I wrote an article discussing that.  In short, I think Palin’s family question will amount to a low hurdle when all’s said and done.

        • Guest

          There is nothing to reply to, just as in 2007, Ron Paul the isolationist will not get more then a few percentages and you know it. So your mentioning of it has no value and you know it. But you wanting to write something other than what this site is about is what you want, and we know it. You bring no value to the conversation, only diversions and empty tidbits.

          This is what I see when I look at your posting-history.

  • danielvito

    Guys she is doing these numbers without even campaigning. Wait till the nation finds out she governed the state w/the lowest state/local tax burden in 2009 at 6.3%. Me thinks, fiscal voters will like that. Oh by the way, she also is an Energy gov who wants to drill domestically and create jobs. Just saying, once the campaign gets going, it’s sarah all the way.

    By the way, why all the attention to Sarah’s new home in Az., come next year Nov. she’ll be moving into a new home again on 1600 Penn. Ave in Washington, D.C.. I think that might get more coverage,

    • Dan C

      Getting her record out to the masses is the big thing. It is a great record and most people have no clue about it. A campaign website with the facts about her record as governor will be huge, and then we have to spread the word to everyone about it as individuals.

      • danielvito

        Dan, that’s the key, if the issues info gets out she wins, if the marginalizing stuff sticks she does’t. The media will push to marinagize, we, new media will push her issues.

      • SaraPFan

        Palin gave your record and facts years ago and she still continues. This will not suffice. Conservatives and Independents are looking for the Trump Type A personality. A fighter. We need to remind the voters of Obama’s record.

      • excopconservative

        You are right.  It’s hard for a candidate to do it themselves.  If you remember in 2008 when Giuliani tried to stay focused on his record, he sounded like a broken record.  It just didn’t play with voters to start every paragraph with "When I was Mayor…."  If Gov. Palin stays on her vision for the country and her views on policy matters, she could have those introducing her tell the audiences about her record.  We can spread the word as well as the various pro-Palin websites.  Gov. Palin has used her record as mayor when she ran for governor, so she will know what to do.

      I love these polls because I can use them in proving my point in convincing some of those "I love Sarah but I don’t think she can win" people to come over to Sarah’s side.  When I can show them a LIBERAL weighted poll that STILL says that Sarah is in the running…absolutely I love these polls.  I save them in my favorites!  I’ve recruited a LOT of people to O4P using the C4P poll links. 
      100s of ILSBIDTSCW people.

      So if that makes ME pathetic….then I’m pathetic with a record of a LOT of recruits for Sarah! 

      And WHINE has a "H" in it.  WINE is an alcoholic beverage.  You just might want to proof-read if YOU are going to call someone else pathetic.  :-)

        Yes, I concur. I’ve never understood conservatives who understand how biased and flawed news/polls are of the state run media yet they still believe the "Palin can’t win" propoganda that was drummed up by the same media.

        The purpose of this poll was to raise the red flag to Obama to stop taking so many vacations and get serious about campaigning even though that’s what his entire presidency is. They’ve known all along that Palin can win, but they won’t admit it for the sole purpose of dispiriting her supporters.

    • Dan C
