ponzi perry’s polling problems

Bloomberg: Republicans give Rick Perry frontrunner status … even as warning signs flash over his ability to win support in the general election.

Perry is the preferred choice of 26 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in a Bloomberg National Poll …. Mitt Romney places second at 22 percent, while all of the other Republican candidates get less than 10 percent. (Jon Huntsman is on one percent).

…. Perry trails President Barack Obama among the poll’s entire sample, 49 percent to 40 percent, about twice the deficit for Romney. He also confronts negative reactions from Americans disinclined to vote for a candidate expressing the skepticism he has about the viability of Social Security, evolution science and whether humans contribute to climate change.

Forty-five percent of Americans say they’d be less inclined to support a candidate who says science isn’t settled on whether human activity contributes to global warming, while 25 percent said it would make them more likely to back that candidate. Half said they would be turned off by a candidate who says evolution remains an unproven theory, with 20 percent saying they’d be more inclined to support someone who holds that view.

….. Palin is viewed negatively by 66 percent of Americans in the poll, while Gingrich is disliked by 55 percent.

    Funny! A whole days story could be, regardless of the presidents poll numbers, he still beats both GOP frontrunners! About the same as he did with John McCain!
    Not one peep!

    I saw a funny sign posted on a website recently, maybe you say it as well. It was on the message board we often see outside places of worship, this was an Episcopalian Church. It said, “governor Perry, this is God. I am not the voice in your head. Take your Meds!”

    Two thumbs up in my book….way up!

    You’d better hold on tightly to that metal organ Perry, ’cause the limp noodle in your draw-ers will scare off the chicken-heads.
