Thank you, Obama

Without you, we wouldn’t have tea!

People are so enamored with Hopenchange that they prefer Palin’s politics: 52% to 40.  Go Mama Grizzly!

Via Beltway Confidential:

Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin’s than they are to President Obama’s, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just 40% say their views are closer to the president’s than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.

And is this any surprise?

Among the Political Class, however, 68% say their views are more like Obama’s, while 63% of Mainstream voters describe their views as more like Palin’s.

No.  Ed Morrissey elaborates:

Interestingly, in the same survey, Palin only gets a 48% favorable rating, with a 49% unfavorable rating.  That seems to indicate that while some voters think she represents their values, they may not be as supportive of her as a candidate.  Similarly, respondents are almost exactly split on whether Palin is good for the GOP, 40/39, with 20% unsure.  They’re also somewhat less likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by Palin (27%) than to support one endorsed by her (16%), with 55% saying it makes no difference.

However, on values, Palin clearly comes up aces against Obama.  She beats Obama among both men (55/37) and women (48/43).  She has majorities in every age demographic, even an 18-point majority among Obama’s core constituency of college-age voters (18-29YO, 52/34).  Fourteen percent of Democrats choose Palin, and she wins handily among independents by more than 2-1, 59/27.  She only loses in two income categories, both by pluralities: under $20K (40/42), and $60-75K (41/49).

Conservatives for Palin has the crosstabs. 

My best: more folks will come on board with common sense over Keynesianism.  Since the recession is over (huh? even Obama voters tire of the beans-n-franks the Obama economy dishes out).

  1. I want to see the poll that asks if a presidential election were held today with George W. Bush on the (R) ticket and BO on the (D) ticket, for whom would you vote. I know how I’d vote. And I suspect that a vast number of Americans feel the same way.

    What a difference a couple years of leftist lunacy makes.
