PPP Polling: 2016 GOP Presidential Nomination

Is PPP running out of things to poll?
Or is this a little wishful thinking on their part?

If Mitt Romney was not a candidate in 2016, and the Republican candidates for President were Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Rick Santorum, who would you most like to see as the GOP candidate for President?
Chris Christie 21%
Jeb Bush 17%
Mike Huckabee 17%
Rick Santorum 12%
Marco Rubio 10%
Paul Ryan 7%
Rand Paul 4%
Bobby Jindal 3%
Someone else/Not sure 10%
A survey of 742 Republican primary voters was conducted April 12-15, 2012. The MOE is +/-3.6%.

Don't you find it the least bit interesting that SEIU's pollster is polling the 2016 GOP race?

We are doing this.........WHY??

Doug NYC GOP said...

Only RWN finds this interesting becau he wants 4 more years of Obama, in order to keep the Palin flame burning.

In 2016, Romney will be running for re-election.

Doug NYC GOP said...

What IS interesting is the absence of Palin on this list.

Obviously SEIU's pollster doesn't consider her a viable candidate.....

Unless she polled so low, she is part of the bottom 10%....not an unrealistic assessment.

Anyone who would attempt to conduct a "poll" in April 2012 about the GOP presidential nomination in August 2016 is either a fool or a knave.

Daniel Boorstin, a respected Librarian of Congress, predicted back in the 1960s that the popular media was already then reporting on "polls" as if they were "news," i.e., as if they were the same as an actual historical event occurring in the real world.

Manufacturing "news" for profit has intensified exponentially in the last couple decades. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the recently announced presidential "daily tracking poll." Every day--every single day for the next 6+ months--we are all supposed to hang breathlessly on the next poll results as if something had already happened in the world. When, in fact, the opposite is true. The event being polled has, by definition, NOT happened. It's dependent on a host of contingent factors, most of which will never come to pass.

Sorry to get so philosophical here. But this so-called "poll" frosts me. It's worthless tripe, pure crap.

I would support Huckabee in 2016 if he were to run. I realize he probably won't, but Mike Huckabee is and will always be the #1 Republican in the world for me.

re - elect President Mitt Romney that year, but in case ......... JEB / Paul : emergency team, because it would really be an emergency, after another Obama's term.

I like this poll. Picking a VP candidate should be by asking a question like this. I agree with the conclusion, too. Christie is best VP pick because he's a favorite as a future Presidential pick. Great question.

But I agree that the particular pollsters are odd. It does strike me as odd that they are the ones asking the right question.

Omitting Palin from the list indicates a tiny bit of sanity remains.
