Hot Air put this in its “Headlines” section:
A new national study among 1,437 self-reported Democrats, Republicans and Independents revealed that Americans indicated that Sarah Palin was more sincere and believable after viewing her speech in response to the shootings in Tucson…
Respondents were asked to rate Sarah Palin on a scale from 1-7 regarding likeability, believability and sincerity, with 1 representing “not at all strong in this attribute” and 7 representing “extremely strong in this attribute.”
With the exception of likeability among Democrats, Palin’s attribute ratings increased among all parties after viewing her speech. The most notable increase was her sincerity ratings, which increased from 2.62 to 2.69 among Democrats, from 5.25 to 5.45 among Republicans and from 3.68 to 3.85 among Independents.
It is strange seeing a poll that sets a “1 to 7” scale, so I’ll do my best to change the numbers to a more standard “1 to 10” scale. (“pre” means before her speech and “post” means after her speech)
The only group that found Sarahcuda less likable after her speech were Democrats. And let’s face it, most Democrats will never support a Republican. Republicans and Independents both found Sarahcuda more likable after her speech. And that spells trouble for Democrats in 2012. On believability and sincerity, all three groups gave her higher scores after her speech than before. That means even Democrats viewed her as more believable and sincere after her speech. And that spells trouble for Democrats in 2012.
I already gave proof that nearly three fourths of the Republican base and a clear majority of independents deem Congressional Republicans more liberal than the base. As seen in the 2010 elections, when independents broke hard for Republican candidates and the Republican base threw out squish Republican office-holders, that spells trouble for Democrats.
I already gave proof that there are more than twice as many conservatives as liberals in the US, and approaching twice as many moderates as liberals. I already gave proof that the lamestream media has been liberal for literally decades, which puts them out of touch with society. Add in the fact that the only group of people trusted less than members of Congress are members of the lamestream media, and that spells trouble for Democrats.
Here are some other facts to consider:
Most polls underestimate Republican votes.
Republican voting is stronger in off-year elections.
Republicans do better when smaller percentages vote.
Those who “do not get into politics” are less likely to vote in off-year elections.
Democrats, by and large, campaign clearly more conservative than they act once elected.
Many Republicans campaign more conservative than they act once elected.
Republicans now outnumber Democrats in party affiliation.
If the lamestream media was middle-of-the-road instead of liberal sell-outs, Democrats would lose much more often than they now do. If those who “do not get into politics” actually took the time to study before voting, we’d have a much more educated populace and a lot fewer Democrats in office. And that spells trouble for Democrats.
Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) have spent countless millions of dollars and untold programming hours attacking everything conservative, to their loss (as shown by the 2010 elections, which cost over 750 Democrats their jobs). They slandered and libeled their way around talking down the TEA Parties and Town Hall meetings, alienating more and more citizens as the average Joes and Janes found themselves venomously attacked and lied about.
Nobody has been more vilified in the past two years than Sarahcuda. And that was very obvious after Tuscon. Krugman was downright vile. Krauthammer was absolutely disgusting. Democrats and Country Club Republicans despise her. But Country Club Republicans lost the 2010 elections to their base.
After Tuscon, everyone on the left was trying to blame Sarah. The majority of the public declared the attacks on Sarah to be full of feces. When the shooter turned out to be a lunatic with socialist, anarchist, and downright conspiracy-theorist values, it totally shot the left’s idiotic meme. When Sarah gave a heartfelt talk about the incident and a blast attacking the left for their Blood Libel while Obama had a pep rally, replete with free tee-shirts for all attendees, it was Sarah who came out ahead of the opportunist narcissistic Obama. “Never let a crisis go to waste.” And, as one of Obama’s advisors said, “turn Tuscon into your Oklahoma City.”
Obama, his handlers, and the leftist lamestream media tried to cynically use Tuscon for political gain. Sarah and the TEA Party diffused that bomb before it had a chance to go off.
Whenever the people actually see and hear from Sarah Palin, the people find her more likable, more truthful, more sincere than they previously believed. If she wins the Primary, which is a strong possibility, Obama will most definitely be in trouble. Debates between Palin and Obama will be a disaster for Democrats, especially if Obama is not allowed to bring TOTUS with him.
And that’s why the left has to spend so much time lying about Sarah, villifying Sarah. That’s why the left spent so much effort filing frivolous lawsuits against Sarah. That’s why Andrew Sullivan is so grossly interested in Sarah’s uterus. That’s why some leftist arse moved in next door to Sarah to write a book next to nobody will ever read. That’s why so many hateful leftists have issued so many death threats to Sarah. Because they know if she gets a fair shake, she’ll win like Reagan. And they’re deathly afraid of that. Their anti-American, anti-Constitution agenda “to reshape America” will go right out the window.
