New Poll Shows that Perry’s Entrance Scrambled GOP Race (Perry leading in Iowa)
Chron.com ^ | August 23, 2011 | Nolan Hicks

Posted on 08/23/2011 4:02:14 PM PDT by AAABEST

A new poll by Public Policy Polling puts Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the front of the GOP presidential field in Iowa and shows just how much Perry’s entrance into the race scrambled the contest for the Republican nomination.

The poll, released Tuesday (.pdf), shows that 21% of the poll respondents would support Perry in the Iowa caucuses next February, outpacing the two other Republican frontrunners Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney. Romney’s campaign has been focusing on New Hampshire, a state that is considered a must win for his campaign.

If the contest were simplified to a three-way race between Bachmann, Romney and Perry – Perry would be supported by 34 percent of respondents as opposed to just 28% for Romney and 24% for Bachmann.

Polling very well for someone who just got in. He was hardly known nationally a week ago. Now he's ahead in key primary states, and already challenging Obama.

Perry led in North Carolina BEFORE he declared candidacy, also leads in Virginia

Perry frontrunner in South Carolina

Perry takes national double-digit lead in Rasmussen poll

Perry takes national double-digit lead in PPP poll

Gallup: Perry 47%, Obama 47%, PPP Perry 43%, Obama 49%

Obama 50%, Palin 33%

I wouldn’t believe ANY poll from PPP:

Public Policy Polling (PPP) is an American Democratic Party-affiliated polling firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina.PPP was founded in 2001 by businessman and Democratic pollster Dean Debnam.

Perhaps, but he's cleaning up in nearly every poll despite the fact that he was nearly unknown a week ago. Most of these candidates have been campaigning hard for some time.

He's stomping Willard nearly everywhere save for New Hampshire.

It IS getting exciting. The more he is seen and heard the lower go any weak negatives caused from being unknown, and from the crazed Left/Rinos/Rove-disciples/TrialLawyers/
WallStreet crowd who want Romney or no one. It’s increasingly fun with Rick, as he always delivers confidence and accomplishment that is unmatched, no matter how hard they try to apply the old governors office with what Rick has done in the governor’s office.

If Palin wanted in, and we aren’t sure she does, she may have missed a window. Perry may flame out. But with Christie and Ryan now out, it seems like he’s taking the front runner role here as the middle ground guy who is to the right of Romney but not so far right that he could not win the general election.

I think he’ll come back to the pack a little, even though I think most of the attacks against him have been ridiculous. Yes, he’s had some “WTF” moments over 25 years in politics and 10 as governor of a major state. Point me to ANY person who’s been in politics that long who hasn’t made some headscratching votes/positions.

The viciousness has been all on the side of those lying, telling half-truths, and taking things out of context in their pathetic attempt to stop his success.

I see a lot of so-called "conservatives" behaving exactly like the denizens of DU in their push to destroy Perry by any means fair or foul.

Wow! Once again, just like the folks on DU, you set up a straw man to attack. You Perry haters just can't find any affirmative argument for your candidates, can you? You just have to make it personal.

I did not say "everybody" and your saying so makes you one of those liars.

I did not say all who attack Perry are liberals or liars and your saying so again makes you one of the liars.

What I did say is that the attacks have all been lies, half-truths and things taken out of context . . . which for the most part they have and that they who are using those tactics are emulating liberals at DU.

A number of the criticisms are legitimate, his stance on illegal immigration is shaky and he has been guilty of some questionable business deals in the public-private partnerships, but the vast majority of attacks coming from folks like you have been disingenuous at best, more intended to cause harm than to be factually correct.

Lastly, if the shoe fits, wear it.

Gov. Perry Announces TEF Investment in Solar Power Company

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today announced the state will invest $1 million through the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) in HelioVolt Corp. of Austin for the construction of a 125,000 square foot manufacturing facility and development space to test and produce the company’s thin-film solar power cells, which convert sunlight into electricity. The deal will create nearly 160 jobs and $62 million in capital investment.

HelioVolt Corp. puts off growth. Plant is ready but demand not there yet

After months of stealthy operations, solar cell maker HelioVolt Corp. has delayed by two years its job creation projections.

Gov. Rick Perry: Wind Energy Keeps Texas' Air Clean and Our Future Bright
Texas doesn't just believe in the potential of wind energy, we are reaping its benefits already. People who talk about wind energy as a technology of the future clearly haven't been to West Texas lately: the future of wind energy in Texas is now. I probably don't need to spend too much time talking about the benefits of wind energy to a bunch of people who specialize in this remarkable technology, but a few things really stand out for me. I am proud that our state's installed wind generation capacity leads the nation, a place we did not reach by accident.

(snip)

Just last year, nearly $3 billion worth of wind-powered electric generators were installed, twice as much as any other state. This addition of more than 1,600 megawatts of capacity bumped up our total wind capacity by 59 percent. And the hits keep on coming. For example, this afternoon, one of the world's largest manufacturers of alternative energy equipment is announcing a new research facility here in Houston. And I recently got word that Hill Country Wind Power has acquired the Wind Turbine Company and is moving their manufacturing operations from Bellevue, Washington to the Lone Star state. With progress like this, I am confident we'll hit the next milestone, 10,000 megawatts, or 10% of our current capacity, well before the deadline in 2025.


Gov. Rick Perry's Remarks to the Border Summit

We allocated an additional $4 billion to the Medicaid program, and more than $900 million to the Children’s Health Insurance Program. I urged legislators to pass a telemedicine pilot program that will enable, through technology, a sick border resident of limited financial means to receive care from a specialist hundreds of miles away. But the effort to combat disease and illness requires greater cooperative efforts between our two nations. It is a simple truth that disease knows no boundaries. An outbreak of drug-resistant tuberculosis, for example, endangers citizens of both our nations. Legislation authored by border legislators Pat Haggerty and Eddie Lucio establishes an important study that will look at the feasibility of bi-national health insurance. This study recognizes that the Mexican and U.S. sides of the border compose one region, and we must address health care problems throughout that region. That’s why I am also excited that Texas Secretary of State Henry Cuellar is working on an initiative that could extend the benefits of telemedicine to individuals living on the Mexican side of the border.

snip

As a compassionate state, we know that for our children to succeed, they must not only be healthy, but educated. The future leaders of our two nations are learning their fractions and their ABC’s in classrooms all along this border. Immigrants from around the world are being taught in Texas classrooms, and our history is rich with examples of new citizens who have made great contributions. We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, “we don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there.” And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers. That’s why Texas took the national lead in allowing such deserving young minds to attend a Texas college at a resident rate. Those young minds are a part of a new generation of leaders, the doors of higher education must be open to them. The message is simple: educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.


Phoney hispanic "republican" front for amnesty says Rick Perry is the number one hispanic friendly US politician of 2010 elections.

Governor Rick Perry is #1 Hispanic-friendly U.S. Politician of 2010 Elections

Phoney hispanic "republican" front group encourages the GOP to use the "un American" tea partiers and then toss us aside.

How Un-American is the TEA PARTY

Are they so “irrational” and merely a self-centered group revolutionary geezers that do not hold American ideal and thus attack our American values—Democracy, Capitalism and Constitutionalism. Strategically, it seems like the right thing to do for Republican to utilize the Tea Party to diminish Obama’s agenda. But it is also time for Republicans that realize that this people merely using the flag colors as facade to promote un-American agenda . While they do have the right to dissent, sadly, their agenda pushed by special interest in Sacramento and D.C. do not embody the original best American values.

” Everybody is a liar or a liberal if they don’t support St Rick. “ <<<<

Find me where that crap has had to be employed among Perry supporters. Confidence and certainty is something Rick exudes with cheerfulness. Yes, cheer. Something a leader exhibits with no whining. Your remark is out of the Palin supporter’s handbook. Everyone was a traitor and a turncoat to the Republic if they were not perfectly and exactly positioned on the Palin band wagon. I have the bruises to show for it. It didn’t matter that the clock ran out on her and she strung us along exceedingly, whether we favored another candidate, or finally dumped her dance of the seven veils over and moved on to someone who would commit and make a run, we were worse than liberal trolls, jealous, or took the name calling around here where it has hurt her, not her followers. That’s all over, now that Perry is in. We’re moving on, to the White House.

Sarah has already announced one more non-announcement of an announcement at the Labor Day, September 3 event! She says the media who suggests they know or think she will announce are making trouble. Heck, the media probably got their info off the lather on Free Republic from her own supporters assuring one another that her genius will announce at last on Sept. 3.

Sarah will endorse no one. At least until it is a given who the nominee will be, and if she wants a position in the new administration. I don’t really think she knows what she wants now that she is out of work, but for the FOX contract. To keep that contract she must be telling them she is not running, and they must believe her.

I just love the way you are attempting to smear Perry with that article by Alex Gonzales. Please show me where Perry is responsible for the ignorant left-wing ramblings of that kook, or were you just hoping that I wouldn't follow up on that link? . . . You must be lying again . . . smearing with guilt by association, is it? They compliment Perry as the "#1 Hispanic-friendly politician," so he is therefore instantly (in your demented understanding) responsible for the other article. That's pathetic.

You must really hate Hispanics if you object to a governor of a state being "Hispanic-friendly," or are you one of those yankee bigots who automatically assume that all Hispanics are illegals? We in Texas know the difference between illegals and legals and we welcome legal immigrants--of any stripe.

How sad for you that you are so consumed with hatred.

I really don’t care what you think because you’re insignificant. Others may want info (Most of which comes from Perry’s own Governor’s website) Its for the benefit of people who want to do their own research and not take things for granted.

The fact is that Perry is making a serious mistake in running a liberal style campaign. It may play well with the casual news viewers but conservatives are far more aware than you give us credit for.

"Perry has the best favorability rating of any GOP candidate among probable Iowa caucus voters with 56% having a favorable opinion and only 24% having a negative opinion – even after Perry’s controversial statements about global warming, evolution and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke."


They seem to think that Perry's high favorability rating is "in spite of" making such comments. Did they ever consider that it might be "because of" such statements?
