C4P Reader Survey Results – Overwhelming Majority (73%) Still Support Governor Palin





We asked for your feedback … and you gave it. Some 1,700 readers participated in our poll last weekend. Thanks to all. We’ll likely have more analysis about the survey, but here’s a quick snapshot of the most salient results, starting with how C4P readers are reacting to Governor Palin’s decision.

Not surprisingly, Herman Cain benefitted the most from Gov. Palin’s decision. He racked up a big preference among our readers. That being said, many are still taking a wait-and-see approach.

Here are the results:

But most people see a Romney nomination as most likely …

The majority seem to want C4P to continue functioning as a one-stop-shop for Palin news:

And many folks are hoping to continue seeing Governor Palin give speeches and write books, or perhaps serve in a cabinet role:

But we’re still holding out for a future presidential run …

Finally, it looks like the vast majority of C4P readers want our GOP nominee to focus on repealing Obamacare …

Note: An earlier version of this post contained incorrect math …  which isn’t surprising coming from a journalism grad like myself. I added the 39% who supported Governor Palin’s decision unconditionally and the 34% who understand her decision to come up with the 77% 73% who support her. That makes sense, right?

    These results are what I expected but it is nice to have some affirmation that the majority of us still have the same goals in mind and are still willing to stay in the fight even though our game plan has changed.

    Sarah, I believe in you but you’re not going to win by staying out of the election. Cain is great and I would vote for him now that you’re out BUT..1. he has the least amount of money, 2. the establishment republicans are backing romney 3. christie is endorsing romney 4. the primaries were pushed up benefiting those with money and 5. obama wants to run against romney because he’s the closest to his policy beliefs. He might actually win against romney. Run Sarah Run, Please

  • SonOfOriginalTed

    Rush Limbaugh now hitting hard how the Dems want Romney — but concerned about knocking out all others to early.

    The obvious reason is that an early RINO/Establishment/GOP annointing of Romney dovetails with Palin re-entry to save the day.  So, by stirring things up against Romney by the Whitehouse releasing the Romney-Obama care consultations, and Romney wanting Cain to remain in for a while, keeps things looking like a real race is going on, hence, preculdes Palin’s re-entry to save the day.

  • independents4palin

    Loved reading the results of the poll, and I agree with it for the most part. I do hope she runs for another office though or gets her own show or something. I will always want her to run for President though, but thats her decision. I will remain a loyal supporter/fan !!

  • gwspfan

    Does anyone have a link to the interview that Stephen Bannon gave where he said he had a huge project in development that he was going to release 30 days beofre the Iowa caucus? He said it would shake the entire political and societal establishment.

  • NoMoreMeh

    Goal:
    We need a House, a Senate and a POTUS that will repeal ObamaCare.

    • virginiagentleman1

      Agreed, friend. However there is much, much more to repeal, correct and change, along with O-care. Since the majority of media and press outlets are in the tank for the establishment, how about a new FREE PRESS. How about an honest MEDIA? There is so much that needs to be addressed and so little time. We don’t have the time for new leaders to emerge that share our views, WE must lead and create change in every aspect of American life. We already have the rule book, the plan, in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. If we aren’t ready NOW to fight for our Constitutional American way of life, we will surely lose it to the socialism sweeping across the land.

      • NoMoreMeh

        Agree too, friend.  But I’m just following Nicole’s lead, in that her post is about the C4P Reader Survey.  My point was about the "ONE issue" a GOP nom should address, for which I was part of the 43.7% that claimed ObamaCare was my #1 priority.

        – You can petition Nicole to add Free Press, honest Media, and Constitutional American way of life in a new poll, if you want. ;)

        And I do think there is a bit of time to get new conservative leaders into office: that would be called the 2012 election:)  Yes?

        Is it possible to set up our own conservative media site on TV?  I know it would take money, but would it be possible?

        • virginiagentleman1

          Lanahi, my friend, I do believe it is indeed possible. It isn’t in my area of expertise so I don’t know the HOW of it. There are folks here posting and the folks at C4P who just may have some ideas on how to do it. Hopefully some of them will read your post and mine and offer up some ideas.

          • lanahi

            It is definitely needed, now that Fox has crapped out on us.  We have radio, but more people watch TV, of course.  The internet is the news source of many of us, but the average blue collar worker comes home from work tired out, eats supper, and sits down in front of the TV for the rest of the evening. And many still don’t have a computer or internet.  How do we get our message out to these folks on a consistent basis?

          • virginiagentleman1

            How very true, friend John.  If you think about it, this is an extremely important time not just in our lives, but in our very history as a nation and in her suvival as a constitutional republic. America has great need for her warriors, her defenders. …………When you consider the events of the last 10-15 years around the middle east and the world; when you factor in the insane direction of American politics and its quickening sweep towards socialism; the wave of socialism across europe; radical Islam, John my dear friend, It seems to me that the world is fast approaching critical mass just like our beloved America is. America needs and REQUIRES her warriors. Warriors need and REQUIRE competant and fearless leaders such as Palin. In our present congress and wh, those qualities are almost nonexistant.  We must elect new leaders from the PTA’s and school boards all the way up to the White House. Primary qualifacation?  A complete working knowledge of and pledge to operate ‘WITHIN’ constitutional boundries, the same sacred oath our Warriors take when entering service.

      • conservativemama

        We’ll fight………………that’s just Plan B.  If we must vote for someone other than Sarah we have to be prepared.

        I agree but fight for whom? Palin does not want to run.  

        • virginiagentleman1

          Fight for whom, milady? Yourself, your children, your constitution just for starters. They say cream rises to the top so MAYBE someone will emerge that we can rally behind. …You have been out of work for 20 months? Please consider running for a local office in your town or county. From reading your comments over time Wodiej, I know that you have a pretty good grasp of the problems we face and many of the solutions you’ve offered show a better understanding of the constitutional ramifacations then most of those now in elective office, and understanding leads to viable answers and reasonable solutions. Chin up, my friend. Consider in deep and thoughtful prayer how YOU can make a difference. If you decide to run, post your decision and the office you wish to run for here at C4P. I’ll donate to your campaign.  VG

  • Leroy Whitby

    I kind of gave up the hope of a real conservative — 24 years in a row now — when Palin announced no run. I’m not sure of Cain’s ability or philosophy. I’m one of the 8% that is leaning Gingrich right now. Romney is a bad dream compared to Obama’s nightmare, but I don’t think anything but "sudden and relentless reform" saves our nation . . . I think we are all whistling past the graveyard . . . and I fear that includes Palin. She’s fighting . . . but not for the Presidency.

    • WilliamShipley

      I, too, like Gingrich, but I’m warming up to Cain.  I’ve read his positions and think they are pretty much in line with Sarah’s.  Paradoxically, the only thing I don’t like is his 9,9,9.  I’m not one of those that are in favor of a national sales tax because I don’t believe that the politicians will be able to resist using it as more revenue to hand out.  They won’t lower other taxes to make up for it — well maybe for a little while, but there is always another crisis which requires more money.

      All I need for 2012 now is a blue magic marker.  I can go to my bumper sticker, still on from 2008 and mark out Mc and I’ve got Cain/Palin.  She hasn’t said she wouldn’t accept VP and having her queued up for President after Cain wouldn’t be terrible.

      I still think Romney will win, and will vote for him if he is the Republican, but am not happy about it.

      Of course, if Sarah came back from Korea with a changed mind, that would be great.

      • Akabosan

        There is plenty of information available (free) regarding the Fair Tax.  There are books too that can be read about it.  Most of the information "out there" is bad information.

        Most reasonable people, when educated about the Fair Tax can see how it will help to transform this country.

        Mr. Cain’s 9,9,9 plan, he has said, is a step on the way to the Fair Tax.

        GB

      • lanahi

        I can’t see her taking the second spot.  Not impossible, of course, but I don’t think she’d go to DC just for a VP job either.  Depending on who is at the top of the ticket, a VP just doesn’t have enough influence.

        • WilliamShipley

          Well, I think it would depend on the head of the ticket and the arrangements between them.  I’m sure she wouldn’t allow someone else control over her image and who she can talk to again.  I suspect she would negotiate some terms for the campaign.
          It would allow her to not spend the next eight months campaigning.  As VP, once again based on who the President was and their arrangements, she would have broad influence and experience and have a chance to make difference.

          And would be lined up as the logical successor.

    • wodiej

      I would vote for Gingrich over any of the others.  He’s got the experience, he’s super intelligent and he would wipe the floor w Obama in a debate.  

      • Leroy Whitby

        *"like" but can’t believe it has come to this . . . again*

      • Leroy Whitby

        You think there is anything to the idea that Palin might re-enter or have an unconventional plan? Or is this curtains . . . again . . . for a trustworthy conservative nominee?

    • imo123

      I’m not warming up to Cain.  Gingrich is better than Cain.  Santorum is better than Cain.  They are all better than Romney.

    • lanahi

      Gingrich would be better than Romney or Perry as far as being a strong president and with more common sense than many RINOs.  Cain is so weak and inexperienced…he’d be easy to manipulate or influenced…and the others don’t have it either.  Cain already indicated in the past that he would be willing to be someone’s VP, and I don’t think he’s too choosy.
      Romney indicated at one point that he’d pick Rubio as his VP, which would influence Hispanics but probably ruin Rubio, who I think is a Bushie anyway.
      There just isn’t enough time for a good conservative to enter, except for Sarah, of course.  I just can’t see a substitute for her.

      • Leroy Whitby

        It’s a tough situation. I hope Palin tells us one day why she chose this route after running for so long. I’m plain confused!

    The survey shows just how smart C4Pers are. Perry got less support than Paul and Gingrich.
    Perry is a crony capitalist of the highest order.

    =======================================================================
    Nicole, you should split the numbers out over when people participated in your poll and what they answered.

    I bet you a cookie that you will see a major shift upwards between those right after the announcement and those entering only recently when everyone had more time to understand her decision.

      Has anyone noticed?  Sarah’s Facebook count has increased to 3,242,347.

    We need leadership from Sarah. She wants Obama out, but that doesn’t answer all our questions.

    Btw, does anyone know if Cain has seen "The Undefeated"? Probably not…

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/AJY2ILN24QZAME2ZDKMQJNKBBI Chris

      If he did it would have to scare the crap out of him. 

      Cain might be great someday but he needs some gov. experience.  The government does not work like the business world.  I would have a hard time voting for someone with no experience in gov.  I don’t want someone that is a PPC or a Crony.

      It sure seems as of right now our best candidates are weak and I don’t see any of them running away with a win come Nov. 2012 and very few if any squeaking out a win.

      • sodakhic

        His dumpsters haven’t even been jumped into yet, I guess it’s because he kind of sounds like Sarah that people are getting on his bandwagon. Wait till they throw his family under the bus, will see if he’s still standing.

      • fb274

        Keep in mind, the truly most important aspect of the 2012 election is to insure the House stays in Republican hands and the Senate becomes a 60 plus Republican Senate.  Consequently, if ANY Conservative presidential candidate wins, the House and Senate are supposed to ‘make’ law and the President has the power to sign or veto.   A weak conservative is better than no conservative.

        A President Palin with House and Senate in conservative hands would be a home run.

        We need to work for the removal of the Dems and Rinos.

      • lanahi

        So many of them, including Cain, are weak.  Even if they are true conservatives, they would fold under pressure to moderate their stand.  That’s why we needed Sarah.

        • NoMoreMeh

          Yes, are they milksops?  or men?

          That why we need Sarah.

  • conservativemama

    For all of those pundits who tell us that Sarah had no support, for everytime that Fox News told us that polls showed Republicans didn’t want her to run, I say bite me.

    Cain’s surge tells you that the electorate wants a conservative, a real conservative.  How can Romney be the guy when he’s been on the national stage for forever and a day and still can’t pull together stronger numbers, or stronger showings in various straw polls?  He’s leading in NH?  Wow!  Next door to Massachusetts, where he has a house on Lake Winnepasaukee.  What an achievement!

    You know what?  At this point I bet even Huntsman could give him a run for him money in that state.

    • wodiej

      Romney is the guy because money talks and so does power.  The GOP establishment wants someone who will look the other way.  I refuse to support him.  They can get him in there all by themselves.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bill-Carpenter-Sr/1083977378 Bill Carpenter Sr.

      The problem is,,,,,,,,,,,,one can be as conservative as the day is long but without ethics and proven governing skills we still have nothing.

  • Jimbini

    We need to get behind the Republican nominee, even if it’s Romney. Obama is using (or misusing) the executive branch to make an end run around congress. With his many unelected (or even confirmed by the Senate) Czars, and misuse of Federal agencies, he is creating a dictatorship. That needs to be stopped as soon as possible. Gov. Palin wants us to fight for our goal of restoring America to the founding fathers’ vision, and we must do that, starting with the Presidency on down to state level.

        This is not helpful in my view. I hear it as focusing on what is feared will happen, claiming only one alternative to be possible, but not saying whether you respect and trust Sarah enough to lead the work as she deems it must be done.  And if you don’t, well…..

        If the challenge to her stated position is ultimately unsuccessful, will you abandon her and refuse to take part in the works she’s asked of us?

        And if you do stand fast with us, then what are you doing to help her or to identify ways in which you can? 

        I’m asking in sincerity, because to me it seems so clear Governo Palin is not just the only general on the field, but that she’s already marshaled and is ready to unleash a plan to confront and defeat exactly the scenario we dread, failure to remove obama.

        The next worst thing would be a victory and a bad GOP president, and in both cases our choice of remedies is the same: Get the career pols out of the Senate and House, and put the people in control of those seats beginning at the soonest possible moment. That would be the primaries. We’ve already seen the GOP playing musical chairs and cheating to keep Sarah and us out of  them. We know they’re no less our enemies than the left, and possible even worse. We have to sweep them both out and surround the executive office with an impervious and intractable wall of Constitutional Conservatives prepared to uphold and enforce Constitutional Law.

        Sudden and relentless change. I urge everyone to take those few simple words very very seriously when coming from Sarah Palin.

        It’s already begun.

          You see now Sarah is the Lynch pin in this …

      Hannity had a monologue about the mental condition of Obama hunkered
      down in the White House alone and without any emotion or energy.  If you
      believed what he was saying, you would think that the white coats were
      only days away from coming to take him away (much like the Perot
      "they’re coming to take me away" Rush parody).  I don’t know where he is
      getting his information; but if it is even 20% right, Obama’s 2nd term
      is only in the minds of the truly insane.

      If that’s the case, we do not need to settle for Romney.  We need a conservative.  A lady called Rush who was very eloquent about not voting for someone who created the prototype of ObamaCare and who has some serious liberal tendencies from the past.  She actually chastised Rush for not being more vocal about who the conservative candidates were, and Rush was taking the anybody but Obama tack. 

      It seems that there is a lot of tip toeing by the talk show hosts that either has them afraid of taking one side or another or that they have inside information that limits them from speaking out at this time.   Rush was saying that the establishment GOP is trying to lock in Romney really early, with some help from the White House, strangely. 

      I believe that what we see is only the tip of a very large iceberg, and Palin has an inside look that we do not have the benefit of.  Things are going to be quite fluid for some time.

    What I Wish Sarah Had Said
    “Folks we are in the crosshairs of an administration that no longer sees this country as great.  There is no more time to wait.  Fourteen months is way too long to hold out for a change from the transformation.  We need a candidate who can stand before the country without hesitation or reservation and declare to all do you want to continue down this road of economic peril?  We will if you allow Obama four more years.  Do you want a nation who is called upon when oppressed people need help?  We won’t be if you give Obama four more years.  Do you want our future to be squandered and our children’s lives and a standard of living to be less than what we were blessed with?  They will if you give Obama four more years.  How about a foreign policy that gives our enemies a seat at the table during negotiations and our allies a backseat to their future?  You will if you give Obama four more years.”
    I wish Sarah had said these things.  I wish we had a candidate who would stand there and tell the truth.  What we have before us is a republican image (Romney) of what is currently in the WH now.  I don’t want it and I know many others don’t either.  I will not settle for someone else’s interpretation of what is best for me.  That is exactly what establishment republicans want.  That is not a future.  It is a slower decline of this great country!!
    There is still an opportunity for someone to stand for us?  Yes, deep down I wish it could be Sarah.  I still want it to be Sarah.  She changed the way I viewed politics.  She made me feel there was still life left in our party.  There was still spirit in which to be proud to state to the world unabashedly “I Am Conservative Republican”.  No longer do I feel that way. 
    But Sarah has the platform now to really say these things and without hesitation or reservation.  I hope she does?  I hope she says them right to their faces.  All of the established poobas no matter what party they belong too?  There is no more time.  Fourteen months is too long.  It must be said today!  And someone needs to challenge the person who will be our candidate.  Do you intend to save this nation and our future?  Or do you plan on being a special interest candidate that slowly tears our country apart and continue the road Obama set us on?  That is the choice.  There is no other.  That is the challenge before you.  Which road will you take?
