Palintology: Just 12% Want Her As Nominee In '12? (Only 18% Of GOPers?)

05 Nov 2008 10:15 am

(I'm bringing back words that I've banned; it's after the election. Give me a break.)

From NBC's First Read:

NBC-WSJ GOP pollster Neil Newhouse did a post-election survey last night, and here's what he found: Just 12% of those surveyed believed Palin should be the GOP's new leader; instead 29% of voters said Romney, followed by 20% who say Huckabee. Among GOPers, it was Romney 33%, Huckabee 20% and Palin 18%. Look for more from this survey later today.



Great news to see Mitt's earned his place as the natural leader already; no one else is better suited to lead the Republicans through their recovery period.  If the party is going to be relevant again any time soon, then it will be because it collected itself behind the Romney Wing of the party following 2008.  You simply cannot have a divisive, incivil message coming from a culturalist megaphone within the party because that only turns people off.  So from the Romney School, sensible, civil, intelligent, accomplished, businesslike conservative Republicans like Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, and Bobby Jindal will emerge as the new bloods, the voices to follow.  

If I'm wrong, then they will only continue to lose in the forseeable future b/c you can't have a party being steered by people more interested in cultural identity (or showing ideological preferences to people who are record-inadequate or uncivil in manner who play checklist politics with no appreciation for variance in opinion or changes of the mind) than they are in being pragmatic problem solvers on a mission to improve the value of government to and lessen its burden on the lives of its people.
