The Daily Caller has an interesting article entitled “‘Liberal’ unpopular, but newer ‘progressive’ label gets high marks in poll.” As the buyer should beware, so should the voter. Slick labels don’t always mean something good inside the packaging. In the case of the “progressive” label, it’s the same old poison that is destroying the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
Some conclude that Republicans must water down the conservative message and nominate a moderate. But Americans crave answers, clarity and leadership. This call will not be answered by ambiguity. We need a conservative leader who unwaveringly believes that a return to freedom and moral clarity is what this nation needs.
According to a recent report comparing attitudes in Europe and America, only 49 percent of Americans now feel that American culture is superior to others. This is down from 60 percent in 2002. What the study does not examine is what we mean by culture. Culture is about the prevailing core attitudes of a society. And, when we look further into this same study, we find that American attitudes are distinctly different from their European counterparts and that these attitudes very much reflect what is uniquely American.
As Newsmax reports, Rasmussen’s latest polling finds Herman Cain ahead of Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney 30%-24%. That’s very good, especially considering Romney is still getting a free pass from the “mainstream” media while the bloodhounds have been out for Cain going on two weeks now. Are people really stopping listening to the “mainstream” media and allowing liberals to pick the Republican candidate?
Have you ever taken note of the sad and pathetic herd instinct which leads otherwise educated and rational human beings to parrot support for some of the most morally bankrupt and sometimes asinine ideas ever to come along? We see it frequently in areas like the homosexual agenda, creation and evolution, the anthropogenic global warming hoax, abortion and more.Why do so many human beings succumb to that impulse, and what can be done to stop it?
A new Gallup poll finds most Americans recognize the cause of our economic woes: the federal government. Minus those government policies, the leverage that sunk the economy in 2008 would not be possible. For Republicans looking to thread the needle in 2012, they would do well to point out how government policies caused the financial crisis, and to hold accountable any opponent who supports maintaining those policies.
Have you seen the latest from Gallup on the sentiment of Americans toward their government? You should. That outrage we saw boil over with the advent of the Tea Party movement? It hasn’t gone away…and it’s only getting hotter. In addition to historic dissatisfaction with government (81%), the survey found that most Americans have no confidence in their elected leaders, believe government wastes most of their hard-earned money, and that government has become so large that it is a threat to freedom.

I’ve been watching the number of people who believe in anthropogenic global warming (AGW) fall for several years now. At first, many if not most people were willing to give scientists the benefit of the doubt. But after mountains of evidence to the contrary, embarrassing gaffes by High Priest Al Gore, ClimateGate, and IPCC goofs, the idea of AGW may soon be a cheap throw-away joke on late-night TV. This new poll finds a huge majority believe scientists have falsified the data to support their own theories and beliefs.
Another poll, this one from Public Policy Polling, finds Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) leading the pack of GOP presidential contenders. Zogby’s latest poll a couple of weeks ago had Bachmann way out in front with a double-digit lead over her nearest competitor. But the PPP poll finds the entry of Sarah Palin or Rick Perry into the race could shake things up.
Many whites that initially had supported our president are now crediting him for our current misery. But blacks, despite suffering far more, are far less inclined to hang it on Obama. The message that massive government spending and borrowing does not grow the economy has not reached blacks. Is this a racial thing? Whites will jump off the ship run by a black captain in a minute while blacks will ride it out until it hits the iceberg?
It seems President Barack Obama has brought us another example of the liberal fondness for manufacturing reality. As I pointed out this morning, liberals like to “redefine” words to better fit their distorted version of reality, but sometimes they just flat make stuff up. Making stuff up is a trusted old play from the liberal playbook and frequently works when the American people aren’t paying attention. That is what President Obama did this morning.
The latest from pollster John Zogby shows Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) with a huge and growing lead over all other Republican candidates for president in 2012. She has extended her lead another 10 points to 34%, while Cain remained at 15% and Romney fell back to 14%. This is very good news, because our republic can survive another four years of Barack Obama…and given our advanced state of decay, probably not even four years of a RINO like Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), the latest and best of the GOP presidential candidates, is now tied with Herman Cain in Gallup’s “intensity” score which measures the intensity of positive support for the candidate. That’s not surprising at all. Bachmann is unapologetically conservative, and unlike many Republican men, isn’t spineless or lacking in testicular fortitude.
The 2012 Iowa Report says Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), whom I would consider to be the declared candidate who best exemplifies GOP values, has a commanding lead over every other Republican competitor. In a field of 11 names, Bachmann comes up with 33% support, with her next highest competitor (Herman Cain) at 15%. RINOs Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney and Jon Huntsman place a bleak 13% and 0.4% respectively.
The Washington Times reports Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has shot to the top of Zogby’s latest poll of Republican primary voters. In a very large field of candidate, Bachmann pulled 24 % with Herman Cain and Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney tied at second with 15%. RINO-extraordinaire John Huntsman, the favorite Republican liberal of the “mainstream” media, comes in at a paltry 2%.
Raymond Keating, chief economist for the Small Business & Entrepreneurship (SBE) Council, said many businesses are nervous about the cost of energy, public policy changes, government spending and debt, and regulatory issues like ObamaCare. This atmosphere of uncertainty is causing businesses to hold off on hiring, investing and growing. All of this comes together to keep our economy struggling.
Results from what is likely the most extensive national research survey of its kind show that 62 percent of Americans believe that “marriage should be defined only as a union between one man and one woman.” Fifty-three percent of Americans strongly agreed. The survey results mirror American voter behavior when faced with the decision to either affirm marriage in their state constitutions or leave it open to legal challenges or other attacks.

Though the “mainstream” media continues to do its best to pretend that Herman Cain doesn’t exist, the “atypical GOP candidate” continues to rise in popularity with the conservative base of the Republican Party. Today’s latest Zogby poll has Cain ahead of Christy by 3 points in the #1 spot. Despite his millions and his backing by the GOP establishment fatcats, Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney continues to lag behind in third place.

The establishment doesn’t want you to think so, but Herman Cain is going places in the GOP. According to Gallup, Cain still lacks uniform name recognition among Republicans across the country…but where he is known, he is on fire. He is #1 on the intensity scale, 10 points ahead of Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney. Cain may not be the candidate of the fatcat establishment, but he definitely seems to be the candidate of rank and file Republicans.
The “mainstream” media desperately wants us to think that Barack Obama has already won the 2012 election, that Republicans should just give up now because the Obamessiah is unbeatable (in their minds). But with a good conservative candidate like Herman Cain launching to near the top of the polls, there is renewed hope that not only can a Republican win, but a real Republican can win.
