Who was it, remind me, who was ahead of the curve on this? Who was it who called on her to gently appeal to the legalization crowd weeks before she ended up dropping that mini-bombshell on Napolitano’s show about marijuana laws being overenforced?
C’mon. I have, like, three good ideas a year. Give a man some props.
Among Republicans who say they’ve smoked Marijuana:
Among Republicans who say they have not smoked Marijuana:
The sample size was only, er, 83 people, but even so, I’m intrigued to see her so far ahead of Ron Paul, whom you might think would have this particular market cornered. Either her brand as a western libertarian-ish type is stronger than we realized or pot-smoking is so mainstream even among Republicans that there’s no “fringe effect” when polling this particular demographic. When you sample a group of conservatives who’ve smoked weed, you end up with … a group of conservatives, not the pilots of the next “rEVOLution” blimp or whatever. Exit question: Which formerly lefty issue will a majority of the right embrace first, marijuana legalization or gay marriage?
I’m in the first group. So what’s the point of this poll anyway?
I guess the point of this poll is that libertarian leaning GOPers will favor Palin.
Or if you put it another way, Allahpundit ( who has never been a Palin fan ) wants to imply that people with loose morals tend to support Sarah Palin.
LOL! Just when I think I’ve seen it all, another Palin poll gets pulled from someone’s @$$ that proves me wrong!
This may require an extra large bag of popcorn!
Amongst daily users, Palin 95%
They should do a poll on how many Obama voters are meth addicts, would explain a lot
So is this like “have you EVER smoked pot”?
Cause how many people under the age of 60 haven’t?
I never have. But I support medical use of drugs that work. That includes marijuana.
>> Im in the first group. So whats the point of this poll anyway?
You forgot already?
Probably has more to do with her age.There are probably few people under the age of 50 that did not try at least once,I’d guess the “have tried” in my age group (I’m 49) is probably upwards of 70%?
I dunno man, I forgot what we were talking about....psssshhhh....
Truthfully, I see Sarah Palin less as a candidate, than a kingmaker.
She is very methodically sponsoring other candidates who win their primaries, and they will owe her. But what she does with this bloc is anyone’s guess at this point.
A poll of 83 people, do you think that they were taking national Republican polling serious?
Marijuana legalization or gay marriage first?
To be a little more accurate -
Paul and Palin appeal to the dopers
Huckabee and Romney get the drug worriers
Gingrich supporters have no strong feelings about the issue.
Mitt RomneyCare and Mike Huckaphony should do us all a favor and STFU! Losers from 2008 are not going to take the White House in 2012.
