2012 Popularity Contest.

Posted: April 21, 2011 in Uncategorized
This cartoon is cute, but if the end of the world came due to a president, it would have happened in 2008 with Obama. Or it did end and this is our living hell and punishment for having too many people who voted him into office? Humm.
So What is the poll about anyhow? Is Trump actually winning, or is he just better known? According to UPI Poll , Trump is more visible, not necessarily leading. Yes popularity (obviously) counts, who has the most money, who can market themselves the most.. that is the winner. But This is also just the start.
The Poll compared Trump, Romney, Palin, Huckabee, Gingrich & Pawlenty.
Of course Trump will be the most known, he has been in headlines for years, he has his own show & catch phrases, and he loves to get attention. So it is impossible to not know who Trump is, like him or not, heck I bet the Amish have heard of him (and they are not drownded by media crap like the rest of us are). Trump had 39%.
Now Romney’s fame is due to his version of Obamacare in Massachusetts.. which might win him the liberal vote. In fact I think he should run against Obama, on the Democrat ticket. There is nothing about Romney that resembles as Republican or Conservative. Romney had 12%
Palin, exposure from the 2008 election, the attacks by the liberals, and her own show. She like Trump has been living in the limelight. And like Trump I don’t like or dislike her. I think the two of them take on the wrong issues, and Palin definitely is overexposed by the media, and simple does not know how to smile & spin it like Trump does. Now that would be an interesting pair up.. Trump & Palin. But I do not see Palin winning as president. Heck I don’t see any woman winning on the next election for president, no matter who they are. Why? Because if there is enough backlash to boot Obama, people will revert back to standards, they won’t go for charisma, they won’t opt for inexperience, they are going to be looking for someone who has a proven and conservative stance. I do not see Palin being able to prove that by next year. Palin only had 4%
Huckabee, again had the exposure from 2008, but unless he can find a way to not remind people what a nut he is, he does not have a glimmer of hope. Sadly his exposure from the last election likely still stands out for enough people. Huckabee had 3%
Gingrich, seems like he has been around since the beginning of time. I can not remember a time where his name was not attached to politics. It has only been for the past 2 decades, just feels like forever. Because his name has become like table salt, he is well-known. Yet, Gingrich had 1%.. which oddly tied with Pawlenty.
The percent were on who people had heard of.. not if they would vote for them. So the numbers honestly surprised me, just seems more people would know or be aware of Palin, Gingrich, perhaps to a lesser extent Huckabee, Romney and Pawlenty.
Trump was named by 26 percent of U.S. adults surveyed as the GOP presidential prospect they’d “heard most about,” the Pew Research Center’s News Interest Index indicated.Fifty-three percent of all respondents could not name anyone when asked which GOP candidate they’d heard most about, the poll indicated. The figure was 38 percent among Republicans, 61 percent among Democrats and 50 percent among independents.
53% could not name any GOP candidate.. wow, that is not a good sign. Perhaps, the mass liberal media is not giving air time to the candidates? I just wonder what rock people are living under. So what is drowning out the next election?
The deficit debate accounted for 31 percent of all U.S. news coverage — more than any other major topic .
Perhaps the deficit will also help keep Obama from staying 4 more years in the White House. Hopefully since this has been a loud & constant topic, it will also ring clearly as the race for 2012 really truly starts.
