A brand new poll from Scott Rasmussen shows that a majority of Americans feel Sarah Palin represents their views, by a huge margin, over Barack Obama:
Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin’s than they are to President Obama’s, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Just 40% say their views are closer to the president's than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.
While this is big news, once you get into the internals you find even more interesting data. For example, while the American voters are highly favorable toward Sarah, and feel she represents them, the political class, the Ruling Class tends to feel Barack Obama represents their views better. This includes the Republican elites, by the way. Is it any wonder the Tea Party is going after the GOP with the same gusto as it is going after the Marxist-democrats?
Among the Political Class, however, 68% say their views are more like Obama’s, while 63% of Mainstream voters describe their views as more like Palin’s.
Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly feel Sarah represents them. More importantly, unaffiliated voters, independents, also feel Sarah represents them rather than Obama. The numbers on independents spell big trouble for the Obama regime, as they also feel Sarah Palin represents them, in huge numbers.
Though very close, a smaller percentage of Marxist-democrats feel Obama represents their views, than Republicans who feel the same about Sarah:
Eighty-four percent (84%) of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party say their views are more like Palin’s. Eighty-one percent (81%) of Democrats say they think more like the president.
More bad news for the Obama regime, and the GOP elites: 76% of Republicans and 52% of unaffiliated voters now hold a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin.
The numbers for Sarah have improved dramatically since November of 2009:
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of GOP voters said in November 2009 that Palin shares the values of most Republican voters throughout the nation. At the same time, 74% of Republicans said their party’s representatives in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters nationwide over the past several years.
That's a 25 point increase among the Republican voters. This just reinforces the fact that should she decide to run for President in 2012, she will be tough, if not impossible to beat in the primaries.
Scott also offers this bit of info about the Ruling Class:
One thing's very clear from the new findings: The Political Class doesn't like Palin. Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Political Class voters view her unfavorably, while 60% of Mainstream voters have a favorable opinion of the former governor. Eighty-one percent (81%) of voters in the Political Class say Palin is bad for the Republican Party, but 51% of those in the Mainstream say she's good for the GOP.
In a political climate where the American people are stocking up on tar, feathers, pitchforks and torches, being highly disliked by the Ruling Class is not exactly a bad thing!
Since Sarah is seen by many as the person leading the charge against the establishment, the Ruling Class, the fact they don't like her just makes her stock continue to rise. A lot of the elites are hoping (praying) the American people will calm down, and the Tea Parties fade away after the November elections are over, but we highly disagree.
We have seen a great awakening, politically, in this country. People who have never done anything political in their life, past casting a vote, are now out organizing and promoting Tea party events, as well as knocking doors and manning phones for their candidates of choice. The growth of grass roots political activists is like nothing we have ever seen. These folks are not going away.
From what I am witnessing, I think we are going to see what amounts to a permanent Tea Party. These people who are working to restore the nation to it's Constitutional Republican roots will remain active for years to come, serving as watchdogs, maintaining Freedom and Liberty.
If these polls keep trending upward, one can make a pretty safe bet that it will be Sarah Palin leading the restoration efforts from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, starting January, 2013.
