Iowa Straw Poll- TrueblueNZ Supports Palin and Cain 2012

Results of relatively important Iowa straw poll on US Presidency. Mainstream media needs to look at where their guy Mit is. Good too to see the Conservative Michelle Bachmann best Ron Paul and his Randian zealots. Sorry to see Cain with so few votes, although he still got almost three times as many as Romney.

1. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (4823, 28.55%)

2. Congressman Ron Paul (4671, 27.65%)

3. Governor Tim Pawlenty (2293, 13.57%)

4. Senator Rick Santorum (1657, 9.81%)

5. Herman Cain (1456, 8.62%)

6. Governor Rick Perry (718, 3.62%) write-in

7. Governor Mitt Romney (567, 3.36%)

8. Speaker Newt Gingrich (385, 2.28%)

9. Governor Jon Huntsman (69, 0.41%)

10. Congressman Thad McCotter (35, 0.21%)

Total votes 16,674

I’ve decided who I am supporting. Has to be Palin and Hermann Cain. Why? I’ll tell you. Foremost criterion is that it cannot be a long term mainstream Republican politician. They’re all to blame for our present predicament because they have too frequently constantly capitualted to the left. So that eliminates many of those listed above, and really leaves only Cain and Bachmann. Perry is not too bad a choice but he is stained by past socialist policies, and more importantly by saying quite clearly he was not going to run and then running. I’m sick of this kind of casual deceit.

I feel sure Palin will run. Its hard to choose between Palin and Bachmann, but not that hard. Palin wins on coherency, articulation and presence. But more so because it would piss the left off mightily to see Palin as President. Secondly, leaving aside that Cain has the approach we need, he’s a black man and this would defuse the left’s main propaganda plank against the Tea Party, that they are racists.

I still can’t help feeling some pangs of regret at discarding Michelle, but the choice has to be made.

  1. I’m glad Cain did poorly. He is a globalist who is supported by the same central bankers who gave us Obama. I was glad to see that the two Austrian thinkers, Ron
    Paul and Michelle Bachmann, came out on top.


  2. “And I’ll promise you this: I’ll work every day to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in your life as I can. And at the same time, we’ll be freeing our families and small businesses and states from the burdensome and costly federal government so those groups can create, innovate and succeed.” – Rick Perry.

    Sure beats ‘hope and change’.


  3. The only problem I have with Perry/Bachmann is that it’ll be too much like Ken and Barbie……but then good looks and personal presence have never been a negative in US politics.


  4. Well, Mawm, I’d be perfectly happy to take Ms Bachmann off Perry’s hands, should she prove to be a disadvantage. 🙂 🙂


  5. The Republican establishment will go with Perry or Romney.

    The obvious objection of ‘another Bush’ doesn’t hold up, Perry’s values were forged in his Paint Creek tenant hardscrabble farming background.
    George was a multimillionaire at birth.
    Bush never knew a spending Bill he didn’t like, Perry has been a ruthless budget balancer.
    Perry is weak on illegals and, as are they all, too publicly religious for NZ tastes.
    No-one’s perfect.
    This joker has, what, 11 years as Gov of Texas.

    By no means a minor aside, Perry’s operational life view and character further developed by his training and experience as a long time USAF Herc driver is a direct comparison to Oby’s corrupt ACORN “community organiser”, confessed hard drug using background. Perry has undoubtedly been in many situations in the air that were potentially fatal, Oby had that experience only, maybe, if he owed his coke dealer money.
    Character is destiny.

    Palin is nowhere in the polls….she’s my first choice…..but not if you can count.


  6. GOP Primary: Perry 29%, Romney 18%, Bachmann 13%
    Texas Governor Rick Perry, the new face in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has jumped to a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann with the other announced candidates trailing even further behind.
    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary voters, taken Monday night, finds Perry with 29% support. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2008, earns 18% of the vote, while Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman who won the high-profile Ames Straw Poll in Iowa on Saturday, picks up 13%.
    Good to see that RINO Romney trailing Perry!


  7. KG, it’s bloody great to see Perry so far ahead. I’m envious of the US that they have alternatives. In NZ the choice is between an old grey soft-left socialist and a performing chimpanzee soft-left socialist. It’s disgraceful.

    Perry/Bachmann, Perry/Palin, Perry/Cain. I really don’t care. The important thing is to get that communist the hell out of the White House so America can once again become Great, and show the way.


  8. I am in total shock over this blog post. Cain is a big business/Federal reserve banker and Bachmann voted for the Patriot Act and for the extension of it. The only real candidate is Ron Paul


  9. Yes, and Perry was Al Gore’s campaign manager and Trans-Texas Corridor NWO agenda pusher. You have to be kidding me, we don’t need another bad TX governor for president


  10. There ya go, DY–follow that link and discover the awful truth. Ron Paul ain’t the Messiah, no matter what libertarians may wish.
    They’re all grubby in some way, at some time.
    In my view, Republicans supporters would be better employed organising to get out the vote, monitor electoral fraud and publicising Dems corruption, rather than nit-picking over candidate’s records.
    Because not one of the candidates (even Romney) would be as disastrous as what’s squatting in the WH right now!


  11. U must be kidding yourself if you think that Obama/Bush/Perry/Romney/Cain have a different agenda. They are all bought and sold by the same people

    Now with regards to Bachmann, while I agree with her on certain points, she voted for the Patriot act and the voted to extend it. Sorry but that is just unforgivable


  12. Give me strength….
    I agree with a lot of Ron Paul’s analysis.
    I also wouldn’t trust him with a power tool or to back my boat trailer.
    Don’t want him managing a Cuban missile type crisis.

    Uncle doofus.


  13. “Sorry but that is just unforgivable”
    In which case, you’re in deep shit. Because there isn’t a single candidate who hasn’t done something true conservatives would regard as “unforgivable”.


  14. And while you’re busy picking candidates apart, how about you tell us who you think is the “ideal” candidate? Because if you think Ron Paul is The Won Mk2, take a look at libertarian immigration policies…….
