muppet show update

Steve Benen: Gallup has a new poll this morning, asking Republicans who they prefer among their GOP presidential hopefuls. It’s the first national poll taken after several prominent figures – Huckabee, Daniels, Trump, etc.  withdrew from consideration. I found the results rather interesting:

1. Mitt Romney — 17%
2. Sarah Palin — 15%
3. Rand Paul — 10%
4. Newt Gingrich — 9%
5. Herman Cain — 8%
6. Tim Pawlenty — 6%
7. Michele Bachmann — 5%
8. Jon Huntsman — 2%
8. Gary Johnson — 2%
8. Rick Santorum — 2%

…Herman Cain, for example, has a lot more support than I would have expected…Campaign reporters are closely following Pawlenty and Huntsman, but Gallup shows Cain’s support matching Pawlenty’s and Huntsman’s totals combined.

Also note Palin’s second-place showing, nearly matching Romney … after all of this time as a national laughingstock, the former half-term governor is still one of the top GOP presidential candidates at the national level … Palin still has a following, ridiculous though it may be.

Great stuff over at Balloon Juice where they’re suggesting names for the half termer’s movie (see here) – here are a few of them:

From Here to Inanity – Citizen Vain – Mentl – From Within Sight of Russia With Love – Not-Hur – The Devil Wears Mukluks – Driving Miss Crazy – Inarticulate Proposal – Chariots of Bile – The Woman Who Knew Too Little – Clueless – 12 Million Angry White Men – Legends of the Fail

Thank you Suzanne ;-)

running ….. for the hills

AP: Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said early Sunday that he won’t run for president because of family considerations, narrowing the field in the race for the GOP nomination.

“In the end, I was able to resolve every competing consideration but one,” the Republican said, disclosing his decision in an e-mail to supporters. “The interests and wishes of my family, is the most important consideration of all. If I have disappointed you, I will always be sorry.”
