Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a commanding lead in the 2012 GOP presidential race, and that wont likely change if tea party favorite Sarah Palin decides to run, a new CNN/ORC International poll indicates....The poll’s data show that, for now, Mr. Perry is the clear favorite of tea party supporters. Ms. Palin won support from 10% of voters, leaving her in third place just ahead of Mrs. Bachmann.

She should have jumped in a month ago. Thats assuming, for just a second, that she was seriously planning on running.

Perry’s first selections to the Texas Supreme Court was the appointment of Xavier Rodriguez to succeed Greg Abbott. Rodriguez was a self-proclaimed RINO leftist! Can We Trust Perry With The U.S. Supreme Court?

What rulings signed by Judge Rodriguez do you find particularly offensive? Can you name one?

Incidentally, he now sits on the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, appointed by President Bush.

Another Red South talking point, and just as wrong as all of the others. First, Perry was polling between 10 and 18 points before getting into the race (check RCP). Second, Perry did not have almost 100% name recognition, nor had he been campaigning almost non-stop since 2008. That honor goes to Sarah of the 10%...

Only in your fevered brain is Sarah going to win any national election. She is damaged goods and cannot get elected nationally at this time.

She is going to run for the Senate to replace Kyl in Arizona. After 6 years in the Senate, she will be ready for her shot at the White House. Of course she will be facing Rubio and have to defeat him.

Actually there are going to be a lot of excuse makers around FR when the Palin campaign goes belly up (providing she runs, which I hope she does).

I can hear the excuses now:

“The MSM wouldn’t give her a chance to get her message out!”
“The RINO’s had it all FIXED!”
“Karl Rove pulled his strings to keep her out!”

Yes, excuses to blame everybody everybody except the voters who would support and favor a better candidate than Sarah Palin.

Umm...I’m pretty sure the original poster was being ironic - suggesting that this just another ploy by the leftist media to stop Palin from running.

No way. Polls are amazingly prescient 8 months from the primaries or 15 months from the election. Why look at how Rudy swept the field last time, Or how Hillary was going to be the dem nominee, or how Trump was the frontrunner a few months ago. Dukakis was unbeatable, Reagan couldn't win, Mc Cain was the only one who could beat Hillary. Get with the program dude (or dudette), it's all done, the votes are already cast.

It's obvious you don't know how good these polls can be..................../s

And the fact is, you’re only telling half the story. The other half is, with all that name recognition goes high national negative ratings. High negatives with low name recognition is not easy to overcome. High negatives with high name recognition is worse. It means most people have already made up their minds.

How does that play out in the primary, where her negatives will be obviously much, much lower than in the general election?

I’ll tell you how. They will lead to this question in the minds of many who love and adore Sarah: Is she the right candidate to put up against the Magic Negro?

That’s how. And that’s why she might continue to poll below Perry even if she declares her candidacy.

And knowing that (smart person that she is) might be the reason you don’t see her running right now at all.

I hope she stays out. We don’t need a nasty primary fight. Perry is going to get the nomination and no use muddying the waters like Huckabee did back in 2000 to sell books and get a TV gig.

The difference is that Palin is far better known nationally than most would-be candidates, and STILL fails to break 40 - 42% vs. Obama.

Yep, she should just give up because the polling people say she can't win 15 months before the election takes place.

Good thinking, I'm certain she'll take your advice.

good comeback.

So, basically, you don’t have a source.

Actually, that’s what I figured.

Come back when you have evidence, and not just an opinion.
