This Gallup poll was released a few days ago, and from my perspective, it didn’t receive the attention it deserved, particularly the info in the above graphic.
For those who fear Sarah Palin, or are terrified of her, as well as being jealous, this is not the direction their persistent assaults on her and her family is intended. Interestingly, the notion she is not sophisticated enough, or experienced enough, comes from the same people who support/ed our current resident of the White House, the most incompetent, unqualified, least experienced, and least known person to ever hold this office.
In a Washington Post Op-Ed, Sarah Palin lays waste to the “Cap and Trade” legislation the House passed.
Can America produce more of its own energy through strategic investments that protect the environment, revive our economy and secure our nation?
Yes, we can. Just not with Barack Obama’s energy cap-and-tax plan.
This piece by Gov. Palin could not go without challenge, from the George Soros cabal. Who did they trot out first to challenge/impugn her? As humorous a choice as possible, Sen. John Kerry.
MoveOn.org began e-mailing members Tuesday, asking them to fund a rapid response ad blasting Palin’s op-ed. Soros’ group said Palin was positioning herself as the face of conservative opposition to Obama’s energy policy, telling supporters her op-ed was “a marvel of misinformation and outright lies.”
That last quote is more accurately applied to the Soros cabal, and the numerous prevaricators on his pay roll.
Then there were others who decided to weigh in on her Op-Ed, as indicated by this posting at Conservatives4Palin.
As could be expected, Governor Palin’s common sense assault on this huge government intrusion into the private sector stirred a hornet’s nest of panic among the liberals and their allies in the mainstream media. Conor Clarke of The Atlantic immediately responded, as if on cue, with an incoherent attack which was promptly and thoroughly debunked by Rob Harrison. Even one of the bill’s sponsors, Representative Ed Markey (D., Mass.), felt compelled to respond in The Daily Beast and, as with Mr. Clarke, his misinformed tirade was quickly taken apart, this time by R.A. Mansour.
Rush Limbaugh did weigh in on the Gallup poll with his commentary on 16 July, and as is his custom, cuts through the fog and finds the substance of the issue.
Wake Up, GOP! Liberals Fear Sarah Palin Because the Voters Love Her.
She has 72% approval in Palin in the Gallup poll. Political gurus and pundits — these yapping yammerers all over TV; Palin trashers in the Republican Party; the sordid, looking-down-the-nose, low-wattage elitists — you might call the office here to figure out what’s going on. This is not going to sit well with the elites in the Republican Party, the country club, blue-blood, Rockefeller Republicans. They don’t like her nearly as much as the Democrats don’t like her, but I think this is huge: 72% after a year in which she has been a target of literal political destruction. Folks, I’m just telling you: If there are any of you wimpy, wishy-washy Republicans out there who so desperately want to have a candidate that the sophisticates in the media in Washington and New York approve of, you are guaranteed to secure the Republican Party defeat after defeat after defeat. If you’re going to let them pick our nominee — which happened last time, by the way.
To further illustrate her ascendant favorable polling, despite the vicious attacks on her, I found this info at the Governor Palin 4 President blog.
It is nice to see Sarah Pac advertising on the Drudge Report. Especially since Drudge Report has often been in the top twenty visited sites in the world. In 4 months Sarah Pac brought in just under $800,000 and all of the donations were in small amounts. This is great news because it demonstrates Governor Palin has large grassroots support (unlike Romney).
Since July 3rd, donations have increased 100 fold, in 3 weeks, nearly doubling the total nearly meeting Romney’s $1.6 million. What is most encouraging for Governor Palin & Sarah Pac is the number of supporters more than triples Ronmey’s which in the end equals more votes, a much larger base and a huge grassroots campaign already in-place & nationwide.
That info reinforces the Gallup poll findings in more than an anecdotal manner. Yet, the LameStreamMedia, if it mentions Gov. Palin at all, does so with condescending and derisive reporting. Their frustration at not being able to influence more to their scripted plan of destruction must be excruciatingly painful.
The fear and loathing, while most pronounced on the left, is not to be overlooked on the self-anointed GOP elites. Victor Davis Hanson had an excellent piece last week, that has since been posted at several different sources.
Why the Elitist Hatred Toward Palin?
In short, if Palin is a “nutty puppy,” these Washington and New York insiders are a deranged pack of rabid dogs. Why, though, the venom?
An excellent question, to which he supplies numerous explanations.
Another example of the self-anointed elites disdain for Gov. Palin comes from an article at American Thinker concerning one Peggy Noonan, and in my opinion, is as accurate a description of the D.C.-NY “yammerers” as any I’ve read, and one that makes me chuckle, each time I read it.
Peggy Noonan: Sarah Palin Jealous!
You’re Peggy Noonan and you’re jealous. You don’t understand it. Sure, maybe she has accomplished a few things (like the $26 billion dollar natural gas pipeline deal, restructuring Alaskan government, and taking an ice pick to corrupt politicians). But she has no style, no pizzazz — she just does stuff. But so do you — and you can’t understand why you don’t get the same adoration. After all, didn’t you go before the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission and not just protest, but elegantly protest — so said The New York Times — a 16-story tower a developer wanted to build in your ritzy Upper East Side Manhattan neighborhood? Sarah Palin wouldn’t have done that; she’s not brilliant enough to understand preservation. She probably would have looked at the jobs the construction would create and given it a déclassé “Hell yeah!”
There is more that can be gleaned from the Gallup poll, as well as others, but suffice it to say she is a political force that cannot be easily disposed of by the self-anointed elites, right or left, and it is their chagrin that I pleasure in.
You go, Super Sarah!!
Finally, a few words from Jackie Mason on the most popular Governor in America, and the fear that they reveal.
Ron Paul is off of his meds…again!
