    Wow. She is taking him to the cleaners in this poll tonight. It shows she is still a force that shouldn't be written off. The poll is pertaining if it were between just the two of them in a matchup for the republican nomination. Apparently the voters in this poll realizes that Perry doesn't have what it takes to be their nominee for the party. On the other hand, they see Palin as a person who does. One thing is that Perry doesn't have the grassroots support that Palin does across America, Obama has scared seniors and veterans (27 million combined) to death with his Social Security statement and that will lose him votes for that stupid statement alone. These people are wise and know when they are being played with. Palin also has been vetted again and there is no dirt on her as her emails proved last month so she doesn't have a big mountain to climb anymore. All she has to do is attack Obama on his failed policies and run on her brilliant record of handling massive billion dollar budgets, fiscal reform, energy and taking on corporate corruption as the executive leader in Alaska.

    Perry will be compared to George W. Bush by the media. There's no way around that. Perry, with his continual speaking out of both sides of his mouth on the Illegal Immigration issue, his signing of a Hate-Crimes bill, his Guardisil debacle, his Trans-Texas Corridor debacle looks more like a gift for the media and liberal left.

    Whatever caused your obvious hallucination, please share with the others. Dude must be high.

    The only way she could get a "brilliant record" is to buy one at a rummage sale.

    You do know the success of her record gave her a 90% approval rating and was voted by the states governors (National Governors Association) when she was in office the nations top governor due to her policies and handling of government affairs? It's all true.

    It does appear The Democrat Party takes Governor Palin very seriously. Did they not they would hardly be squandering their entire campaign budget demonizing her. Seems their biggest expense is per-blog post which should not be denigrated as it allows countless acne'd adolescents to help their parents pay the mortgage through their payment of rent on basement spaces.

    In any case, I still believe she will not run as she would find it difficult taking the pay cut.

    Can't we all just wait and see what happens in the next GOP debate? assuming Perry will participate in it,you can bet all the poll numbers will change, and you guys who are really following the race knows that it's gonna come down to a Perry/Romney/Bachmann showdown in the end. And so what if Perry reminds us of Bush? Weren't the Bush years alot better than today?

    Well, first, this is an on-line poll, where one guy could vote a thousand times, for all we know.

    A couple of thoughts.

    First, I don't think Palin is running. She's not lining up donors and supporters, like Perry is.

    Second, I think that very fact she quit halfway through her term pretty much invalidates her as a candidate. If she couldn't handle the stresses of running a sparsely populated state, the presidency is far more complicated.

    third, you list a series of things Perry did that has made him "less than idealogically pure" for you, I guess, ignoring all the things that are pretty conservative in his record. Palin was hardly "pure" idealogically. None of these governors are. They had to govern in the real world.

    Wow, and I was the smartest kid in my 2nd grade class (which had about the same population of Alaska).

    She quit her job as governor.
    She totally embarrassed herself in nearly every interview she gave as a VP candidate
    Nearly everytime she cites the history of this nation, she flubs it.
    As far as I know, she will only grant interviews to Fox News

    Yeah...Presidential timber there.

    Rick Perry was an Algore supporting Democrat before Karl Rove turned him. As you say he speaks out both sides of his mouth.

    Why would ANYONE vote for him?

    Ronald Reagan was a Democrat. Why would anyone have voted for him?

    Perry is the anti-Obama. FOr starters, we know where he was born. He has had more executive experience than Obama does today. And he's done better at it. He knows how to work with people hostile to his views. Texas' economic record is the best in the country. He also has a lot of charisma and speaks really well.
