Surprise: Paul wins JJ poll

JJ asked last week who you support for the Republican nomination in 2012. As predicted, the Paul people put it up on their message boards and he won, getting more than twice as much as Haley. Romney and Haley came in second and third. Will be interesting to see in six months when I ask this question again what the results will be.

Jeb Bush
19 (3%)
43 (7%)
15 (2%)
3 (0%)
98 (16%)
26 (4%)
76 (12%)
Will vote R but none of these
50 (8%)
37 (6%)
25 (4%)
Mitch Daniels
6 (1%)
Ron Paul
202 (33%)

Paul's also been a steady contender in straw polls across the country since 08. He polls better against Obama in Rasmussen Polls than any other Republican candidate. Neither of those rely on message board posts. He may come across as a kooky ole bird. But, his message has been consistent for decades and is the same message the TEA Party is pushing to have heard.

I posted Palin on the message boards across the entire Internets. What happened?

Ironghost said...

I'd rather not have to choose between Obama and Paul.

Kingfish said...

I saw on my traffic counter where this poll made several Paul boards, none for the others.

I think I posted support for Palin on JFP. I'm sure you got a lot of traffic from there.

It's not much of a surprise that Paul won, if his supporters were publicizing the poll. But it's a surprise that Romney beat Barbour, who should have the home field advantage.

He's in there for Eight Years, let's get use to it. Haley is a Redneck, Romney an East Coast Rhino & Oh! I almost forgot a MORMAN, Pawlenty, is that the corn dish Pawlenty?, or the unknown Pawlenty? Palin is simply a Screw Ball; Newt and Huck are actually character-tures of themselves, McCain will be dead or at least the living dead like Byrd, and Jindal, yea right, they'll elect a black man to the white house before an Indian.....real goo line up here.

Like I said....he's in there for eight years. Count on it and plan accordingly.

I just returned from the SRLC this weekend and wanted to make some remarks about their poll and this one.

1. Mike Pence and Rick Santorum were the best speakers who are probably going to run. In fact, the buzz late Sat was Mike would have done better in the straw poll if more people waited to vote. Neither were on JJ's poll.

2. Romney paid for 200+ "Evangelicals for Romney" to attend and stack the vote in his favor.

3. Same thing for Ron Paul - he offered 600 discounted tickets to his nuts... sorry fans, and it showed on Sat. when the "kids" showed up in droves.

4. What this should tell us is that both are willing to manipulate the court of public opinion rather than run on their ideas.

5. As Haley said... (which he got from Fred Smith) "The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing."
Otherwise, we have to stay focused on 2010. Without a successful 2010 2012 will be all that much more difficult if Rep's/tea party want to 'take our country back' so to speak.

jdd (auburn rat) said...

oops sorry we did...well then they'll elect a Morman to the White House before an Indian...

Kingfish said...

Paul always does well in these polls and then gets very few votes.

I don't think America is going to vote in a 75-year-old president next time. They may have before, but those days are gone.

I would be shocked if he was nominated. He will not get the votes.

19 people voted for Jeb Bush? I realize its only 3%, but by now, with any other conservative choice at all, shouldn’t everybody be Bushed out?

First, we had Mr. Liar, Liar pants on fire if you vote for me, when the Dems in congress come wanting to raise your taxes, I will tell them to READ MY LIPS! Afterwards, he signs the largest tax increase in history (at the time), one we still feel at the pumps every time we gas up.

Eight years after we throw him out, we elect Silver Spooner Trust Fund Dubya (and who could blame us given the other choice). Ole W goes and gets us in a war with the wrong country and thereby misses an opportunity to swiftly crush the real 911 enemy and be the hero his Daddy was right after winning the first gulf war. While Daddy Bush might have been too dumb to think we weren’t going to hold him accountable for his Read My Lips lie, nobody can deny his military instinct and genius. The sad thing is hardly anybody remembers the reason Daddy Bush gave us for his choosing not to go into Bagdad and take over the country; that WE WERE NOT GOING to GET INVOLVED in ANOTHER VIETNAM!!! But hey, with all of that Air National Guard experience of his, how could Jr (W) not have thought he could do what Daddy Bush thought could not be done?

Now Ole W’s a real tough guy with Saddam but far too weak to stand up to Dems and say No, we aren’t loaning money to people who won’t pay it back because everybody DOES NOT deserve to own a house; regardless of how politically incorrect this might have been. Instead, he sends out his HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson to give interviews bragging about how minority home ownership has increased under the W administration; being far too dumb at the time to realize the wheel was going to run off.

Then, to top these disasters off with the top off of all top off’s, when the financial crash does come, and the world wakes up to the royal screwing we have gotten from the scum in DC and on Wall Street, with his classic deer in the headlights look, ole W backs turning 700 billion over to former Goldman boy Hank Paulson to fix the big F Up. And he fixed things all right; making sure his pals at Goldman got their 20 Billion from AIG (money they would have surely lost without the super rich bail out) . So, the super rich get super richer and you and I owe another 20 billion so the thieves at Goldman don’t pay for their mistakes.

With twelve years of clear evidence available, one would think that the name Bush would never even show up on a Presidential poll, much less receive ANY votes; and even if all of this evidence is not enough, is there anybody out there who believes it would have ever been possible for Barack Obama to become President of the United States of America, if not for G. W. Buch? Barack freaking Obama, a man who has never even successfully ran a lemonade stand, a man who was bouncing his credit card two democratic conventions prior to his running for President, a man whose wife admitted they couldn’t (or really was it WOULDN’T?) pay off their student loans (with two Harvard educated attorney’s in the same household).

Please GOD, help us to never ever have to vote for another Bush!!!

Kingfish said...

I'm sick of the Bush's as well but honestly, Jeb has the misfortune of coming after those two. the big surprise is people are surprised how liberal both George's governed. If you looked at the elder's history, you should have known where he was going. the younger one gave pretty strong indications where he was going with his compassionate conservatism and bragging about his ability to work with Democrats. I'm all for bipartisanship when its good for the country but he bragged about it when he campaigned in 2000.

Jeb on the other hand was probably the one with the most conservative record and is well-qualified for the job but then again, he is a bush and we are sick of them.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
