She's a dumber version of Sarah Palin, without the charisma.

Public Policy Polling: Palin trails Sheen with independents

We've found a lot of brutal poll numbers for Sarah Palin so far in 2011: down in South Dakota, down in South Carolina, down in Arizona, only up by 1 point in Texas, only up by 1 point in Nebraska to name a few. But this has to be the worst- independent voters say they would support Charlie Sheen over Palin for President by a 41/36 margin. Seriously.

Despite her deficit with independents Palin does lead Sheen 49-29 overall. We also tested Barack Obama against Sheen and the President leads 57-24.

Sheen is one of the most unpopular figures we've ever polled on. 10% of Americans rate him favorably to 67% with a negative opinion of him. The only people we've ever found worse numbers for are Rod Blagojevich in Illinois (an 8/83 favorability spread), Jesse Jackson Jr. in Illinois (a 10/73 favorability), and Levi Johnston in Alaska (a 6/72 favorability). Sheen's -57 spread ties what we found for John Edwards in North Carolina the last time we polled him (15/72).

Sheen's unpopularity is pretty universal across party lines so it says something about the level of polarization in the country right now that Democrats would support him by a 44-24 margin for President over Palin and that Republicans would support him 37-28 over Obama. People may not have any respect for Sheen but they still think he'd be a better alternative than their opposing party's leading figure.

Obviously Charlie Sheen's not going to run for the White House but the Palin numbers are one of the more interesting benchmarks yet pointing to just how minuscule her chance at the Presidency would be even if she did decide to get into the race.

Isn't PPP supposed to be a serious polling firm?

It does seem a bit silly to be polling Palin.

A new survey released by Public Policy Polling suggests self-described regular Fox News viewers favor former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee over other big Republican names believed to be mulling presidential campaigns for the next election cycle.

PPP relays the numbers on who's up and who's down in the eyes of the Fox News community:

Among the most likely Republican Presidential candidates Mike Huckabee leads the way with a +19 favorability spread at 45/26. He's followed by Sarah Palin at +16 (53/37), Mitt Romney at +4 (40/36), and Newt Gingrich at +2 (41/39).

Findings from a Gallup poll released earlier this month suggest Huckabee is the preferred potential candidate among Fox News viewers to run as the GOP nominee against President Barack Obama in the next election cycle. Politics Daily reported at the time:

The winner of the Fox "presidential primary" is Huckabee who tops the list for regular Fox viewers at 18 percent, followed by Mitt Romney at 17 percent, Palin at 13 percent and Gingrich at 13 percent. Santorum was way back at 3 percent, according to the poll conducted Feb. 18-20. The margin of error is 3 points so no one in the top four is too far apart when it comes to viewer support. Gallup defined regular viewers as those who tune in four to five times a week.

In an intriguing twist, the survey from PPP suggests Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker polls ahead of the usual suspects with a +30 favorability spread among Fox News viewers despite the fact that he is not currently believed to be mounting a campaign for the White House in 2012.

Yeah, but I think even serious polling firms have PR and marketing departments full of ass-hats who occasionally want the organization to churn out a puff piece to get its name in the news cycle.

Yeah, that must be it. Um-if we had even more people competing for the fewer jobs..how exactly would that work?

By HOLLY RAMER, Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. – In his latest trip to New Hampshire, Republican Rick Santorum says the Social Security system would be in much better shape if there were fewer abortions.

The former Pennsylvania senator and potential presidential candidate was asked about Social Security during an interview on WESZ-AM radio in Laconia on Tuesday morning.

He says the system has design flaws, but the reason it is in big trouble is that there aren't enough workers to support retirees. He blamed that on what he called the nation's abortion culture. He says that culture, coupled with policies that do not support families, deny America what it needs — more people.

Santorum has been a frequent visitor to New Hampshire, which holds the earliest presidential primary.

'Contraception culture' would be more like it, but of course he can't say that. Anyway, replicating the Baby Boom for perpetuity is hardly a sustainable solution.

I love how many people in Europe and the U.S. have talked about that as a credible solution to the impending Social Security/Medicare crisis.

Politico, Mar. 28

"I have two grandchildren—Maggie is 11, Robert is 9," Gingrich said [Sunday] at Cornerstone Church [in San Antonio]. "I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."

WTF does that even mean?

Will the intelligent conservative please stand up?

You have Trump the birther who has the same exact bc is Barack.

You have Palin

Hackabee the liar...

And Romney the one that "invented" Obamacare.

Where is the respect for intelligence, education or even facts in this party?
