I should point out here that this polling is for the state of Alaska only.

And I'm struck by the fact that the biggest lead any prospective candidate has over her is Chris Christie, and he's only up by 8.  Romney carried Alaska by 14 points in 2012.
 
2013-08-03 08:44:17 AM
Hard to believe the people she lied to, quit on and repeatedly embarrassed on a national level don't like her anymore.

Reflecting the strong standing we've seen for him a lot of places lately Rand Paul is the top choice of GOP voters in Alaska with 18% to 14% for Sarah Palin, 13% for Chris Christie, 11% for Jeb Bush, 9% for Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, 8% for Ted Cruz, 5% for Rick Santorum, and 2% for George Zimmerman.

So Hillary Clinton isn't leading against some potential GOP candidates in polls 39 months away from the next presidential election, and the polls in question are of the people living in the world's fourth-largest expanse of open tundra.

Meanwhile, in the parts of  the country where the population is a bit higher than "rounding error," those GOP candidates, and the GOP itself for that matter, have a popularity rating of somewhere between "broccoli" and "cabbage."

Why do republicans hate strong conservative women?

As a fan of broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, asparagus, and other green things that grow from the ground, I take umbrage against your aspersions.

I posit that the GOP (and affiliated persons) are more likely somewhere between poop on your toothbrush and the poopified toothbrush.
 
2013-08-03 09:22:04 AM
If Hillary Clinton wants to run and win, she needs to prove during the primaries that she deserves the nomination and not just that she's next in line and is entitled to it. Obama proved that Democrats and lazy Democrats will come out to vote if you excite them. Granted it will be more difficult this time around, since Obama took all of that political energy and squandered it enacting Republican policies from the nineties, being too pragmatic in the age of ideology, and being hamstrung at every turn by the most obstructionist congressional minority in history.

Democrats can energize the electorate, but it's going to be more difficult since Obama already played the greatest hits during his campaign, and we saw how that turned out. I guess we can hope that Republicans become even more insane (less hope and more expect, really) in the following years, but Romney proved that voting for the lesser of two evils isn't a sure bet.

She abandoned them to go to whatever the hell it is that Sarah Palin does.

Alaska has resented her for it since the day she quit (and probably a little before).

Alaska would not ever vote for her. And it shows.

/She's not going to run for president and even if she does, she's not going to win the primary. The GOP is not THAT stupid.

Republicans are beating Hillary in Alaska? You could run a Republican zebra-striped llama against any Democrat in the red states, and the zebra-striped llama would win. Fortunately the blue states have more electoral votes, but not by much so a zebra-striped llama presidency is not impossible. I mean, once you start letting a black man in, next they'll be asking to marry their turtle.

I don't know about that. I like Warren, but I think she got her start in politics a little too late to be president. I think she'll do just fine in the Senate for a while.

Don't get me wrong. I still like Obama as a person, I just don't think he's been a very effective president. My regret is not in voting for Obama in the general. My regret is in not voting for Hillary in the primary.

Honestly, I don't think we've even had incremental change. I think we've regressed. I'm reminded of the cartoon where the republican says to Obama, I'll take a step if you take a step, so Obama takes a step forward, and the republican takes a step back.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: Tman144: Don't get me wrong. I still like Obama as a person, I just don't think he's been a very effective president. My regret is not in voting for Obama in the general. My regret is in not voting for Hillary in the primary.

You honestly think that Hillary would have been better able to work with the congressional Republicans? That's a fascinating assertion, I'd love to hear your reasoning on that.


To me the key difference is that Hillary is a cold-blooded killer who would have taken the fight to the GOP more aggressively than has Obama.

That said, I campaigned for and vote for Hillary in '08, and will do so again for '16, and I think she will be a better next president than had she been elected in '08.

That fact that you referred to our Ambassador and the three other people who died that night as horses is terrible.

Exactly! Don't people know the proper way to honor them is to use them as political props to try and score points against the other party!

spman: Why bother doing Presidential Polling in a deep red state whose results are already a foregone conclusion? I'd be more interested in polling on their 2014 Senate Race, that's the one that's going to be competitive.


The senate polling was their main goal. Polling firms tend to throw on a lot of side questions when they are doing their work since if somebody is willing to answer one question, they'll probably be willing to answer more.

Also, PPP in particular has a habit of asking some pretty silly side questions, like "can you see Russia from your house?"

I'm used to disappointment in politics. My one hope it that Hillary is a political creature, so if the public puts enough pressure on her on certain issues (data collection, drone strikes), she'll likely see the writing on the wall and go along with it. I mean, obviously she's not going to be defending DOMA anymore, right?

Reads like it's from a conservative, just full of projections. The conservative fear and loathing of Hillary is palpable. She won't win the primary and she knows it. She'll play king (or queen) maker and will help the Democratic party pick a top-notch candidate, and that person will be female.

Having traveled to Alaska many times and with numerous friends there, I can say confidently that most Alaskans hate Palin. They see her as a sell-out and supreme narcissist and giving their state a bad name. She has very low support even around Palmer and Wasilla (where she lives). She is basically reviled in Anchorage and up and down the Kenai peninsula.

Despite their similarities, I can't help but shake the feeling that these two women really don't like each other.


I don't think any politicians like Palin other than those who use her to get free air time. Her actual work seems to be extending her 15 minutes of fame as opposed to actually assisting others. While people will point to her doing speeches for candidates, at the same time I did read an article showing her actual involvement. It basically detailed how she comes in at the last minute when the race is all but decided or the polls are showing a win. (I have to find that article again...it was a good one.).Then she gloms on to the Tea Party candidate with the same old sorry lines that the same old sorry news outlets cover because they are interested in ad sales, and not actual news. Palin keeps people glued to the TV. Budget overruns don't.

Esc7: Hillary's myth of inevitability will be her undoing.

Today's electorate has been too manipulated for novelty and sensationalism to accept a Reagan - Bush style succession.

Politicians have become more like characters in a drama and people will be bored with Hillary.


Yes - No - Sort of

2008
Hillary lost in 2008 because she thought she was a sure thing. She was in coast mode, worrying only about swing states. Candidate Obama's 50 state, grass roots, small dollar donation, internet campaign caught both her and the GOP unprepared.
She thought she was inevitable.

2016
We have a different ball game. Currently there is no Democrat other than Hillary on the Stage.
Biden? Does he want the job? How old will he be? Will he really want to RUN?

The Electorate
The electorate is bored/tired? LOL
GOP voters will never vote a DEM.
DEM voters will never vote for a GOP.
Either way, the election will be close, with the winner going to whomever gets out the vote.
Especially the minority and female vote.

Wildcard
The real wildcard is not even on the table yet. Either part could produce an unexpected, charismatic candidate. Reagan, Bill Clinton and Barak Obama were just that kind of candidate.

Guess
My guess is that Hillary would win against the current suite of GOP contenders and leftovers from 2012.

Worst Nightmare - 2016
The economy has recovered. The moron electorates have forgotten the Bush Years and the Obama Recovery and vote for more spending and less taxes and we get yet another insane tax cut-and-spend GOP president.

I don't think Hillary would "work" with congressional republicans at all, I said she would have been more effective. Obama has given concession after concession to republicans and gotten exactly jack shiat in return, whereas I think Hillary would have been playing hardball right out of the gate. There was a lot of wasted opportunity during the first two years of Obama's presidency. Oh well, live and learn I guess.

It will be interesting to see if the next GOP primary is a derpfest like the last one.  Right now, Santorum has the advantage over any challenger, since he managed to stay in the primaries 'til the end, and he has a nation-wide campaign organization for the next race (the same way McCain and Romney started off with the advantage of having run past campaigns prior to getting nominated).

So any Republican who gets in the race for '16 will start out trailing Santorum. . .

From what I remember, Hillary caught flak during the '08 primaries because she'd voted along with Republicans in support of the Iraq War and the Patriot Act; had she not been planning on running for president, she could've easily voted against both, and New Yorkers would've gladly reelected her to the Senate.  Granted, I'd vote for her, particularly since the odds are the GOP will nominate someone further to the right than Romney or McCain, but I'm a bit less optimistic about her playing hardball right out of the gate.

Curious: jake_lex: King Something: So Hillary Clinton isn't leading against some potential GOP candidates in polls 39 months away from the next presidential election, and the polls in question are of the people living in the world's fourth-largest expanse of open tundra.

Meanwhile, in the parts of  the country where the population is a bit higher than "rounding error," those GOP candidates, and the GOP itself for that matter, have a popularity rating of somewhere between "broccoli" and "cabbage."

I'd also point out that the candidate that does the best in this poll doesn't have a chance in hell of getting through the primaries.  The teabaggers will never forgive Chris Christie for working with President Obama after his state suffered a disaster, and he's been taking on their hero RAND PAUL lately.

and RAND PAUL doesn't have a chance of getting elected. like his dad he is just too kooky. folks may like his stand on this or that but in toto he doesn't measure up. and a primary battle between him and ted cruz would damage both of them.


Randy's problem is that he'd have to spend the entire general walking back the stupid shiat he said in the primary. As people repeatedly point out that his policies would result in a dog-eat-dog dystopia, he would wind up spending all his time explaining how everyone apparently has perfect knowledge and "it jus does, okay?"

You really shouldn't run for national office if your political theory can be dismantled by a reasonably bright 12 year old.

King Something: So Hillary Clinton isn't leading against some potential GOP candidates in polls 39 months away from the next presidential election, and the polls in question are of the people living in the world's fourth-largest expanse of open tundra.

Meanwhile, in the parts of  the country where the population is a bit higher than "rounding error," those GOP candidates, and the GOP itself for that matter, have a popularity rating of somewhere between "broccoli" and "cabbage."


I'd vote for cole slaw.

Outrageous Muff: Mr. Coffee Nerves: Hard to believe the people she lied to, quit on and repeatedly embarrassed on a national level don't like her anymore.

But she has nice tits?!

Ed Grubermann: steveGswine: JOHN MCENROE MY CHILDHOOD NEMESIS: Thats some weapons grade trolling going on up there.

"-And finally 12% of Alaskans say they can see Russia from their houses to 87% who can't. That's comparable to the 11% who said they could see Russia when we polled on the question in 2010. "

Mrs. Grubermann answered that poll. Like many Alaskans, she decided to fark with the pollsters a bit. No one here thinks they can see Russia from their houses.


Eh.  Little Diomede has a population of 135.  890 Alaskans were polled.  That just takes 114 from Little Diomede + Mrs. Grubermann, and we're good!

Despite their similarities, I can't help but shake the feeling that these two women really don't like each other.

gadian: The Palins are floating the idea of Sarah running for senate soon.  I can't say that the idea has been met with thunderous applause, but AK is a very, very red state with some clever new redistricting and more redistricting on the way. I think she'd probably win. Hell, she'd probably win even if most people voted against her.


Redistricting means nothing in a Senate race, she would have to win the whole state and she can't do that.

Keep in mind, she jumped the queue to become Governor.  She did it by savaging the local Republican party, and picking up Democratic votes.  Neither will come to her aid.  Alaska's business interests are better off with Begich then they ever could be with Palin, and when the business interests include the ANCSA corporations, Murkowski showed us that a write-in candidate could win, if it was their candidate.

Of course, she could run in AZ.

Rick Santorum just doesn't give up.  You'd think after he stuck it out in 2012, he'd get more that 5% in the polls.  He barely beat out George Zimmerman.  At one time in 2012, he was on a roll in the primaries. But then his DERP began really shining through, anti-abortion, anti-contraceptive, anti-college education.  Now he writes a column for that intellectual oasis, World Net Daily.  Of all those candidates, Santorum and Cruz are the most despicable. Palin at least has entertainment value.

Churchy LaFemme: Ed Grubermann: She only has to win Anchorage. (Biggest hillbilly hellhole this side of the Manson/Nixon line.)

You've clearly never visited Fairbanks...


Lived there for five years. I was 6 - 11 years old, so my memories are a little rose-tinted.

Clinton would lead Palin 49/40 in a hypothetical match up.

Anchorage? No shortage of teahadists, of course, but they DID elect their Democratic mayor to the US Senator, ya know.

I was pretty sure that was the "are you just farking with us?" control question.  Which every poll should have, by the way.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: Alaska is pretty white and rural, are you certain it's trolling?



yeah. Alaska is definitely pretty white... if by pretty white you actually mean one of the least white states around.  

"In terms of race and ethnicity, the state was 66.7% White"

just looking at the top ten highest population states... only Georgia and New York are less white than Alaska. the other 8 are (sometimes significantly) more white.

any other "facts" you'd like to share?
