    Wink Poll: Sarah Palin winning the Birther Primary, Mitt Romney way behind

    Poll: Palin Winning The Birther Primary, Romney Way Behind

    Eric Kleefeld | August 21, 2009, 10:56AM

    A new analysis by Public Policy Polling (D) finds that Sarah Palin is especially popular with a key Republican demographic: The Birthers.

    Among those respondents in PPP's latest national poll who either said that President Obama was not born in the United States or were undecided, Palin had a 66% favorability rating. Of the other three Republicans that were tested in the poll, Mike Huckabee was in second place at 58%, then Newt Gingrich with 46%, and Mitt Romney was last with only 43% favorability.

    From PPP communications director Tom Jensen: "I mean this with all sincerity -- Romney's lack of popularity with the birther wing of the GOP really could scuttle his chances at the nomination in three years."

    -Not surprisingly only 16% of them approve of Obama's job performance while 75% disapprove. I think Mike Littwin might have hit on a pretty good point in the Denver Post today, which is that some of the people who purport to be birthers might not really believe it but that it's shorthand for their general unhappiness with the President.

    I take it they're "key" because they're about the only ones left willing to admit they're Republicans these days...

    Palin's winning among the nutjob birthers. Figures. Only insane people would think she was capable of being president.

    No shit, she was likening him to a terrorist and saying he wasn't a real American, of course they're going to raise their arm toward her.

    Its really sad when the "birther" wing of the GOP has that much power - I would prefer to think of it as a crazy minority, but I'm starting to realize that may not be the case. Very sad for the GOP indeed, I hate that the Republican party has become such a joke.

    Perhaps that is what it needs to give other conservatives a real incentive to kick start a new party which has sanity in their ranks. Let the fringe side die with irrelevency those are the ones who have controlled the party and the previous admin.

    So what's 66% of 12549? Which is about what's left of the Repub party? I say, GO PALIN, bring her on! Why mess with the golden strategy of bringing up the most unintelligent to the highest ranks of the party? She's much more qualified for that rarified leadership role than Romney.
