Insta-Poll: Perry, Christie, Palin Lead 2012 Republican Field?

Insta-poll; Instapundit poll

An interesting new poll up over at the Instapundit’s place. By interesting I mean simple – no bells and whistles; no bullshit and bias. Just the the names of potential candidates for the Republican nomination in 2012 and a box for you to click – no email addresses and no zip codes. And since most non-blogging lefties have never heard of Instapundit in spite of his being among the most influential right-wingers on the planet… I’d say it’s probably far less left-saturated than most you would find elsewhere. Conservative/libertarian/republican polling – plain and simple. Just the way I like it.

Poll: Generic Republican Leads President Obama for 2012

Simpsons Mayor

Results of a new Gallup Poll show a “generic Republican” leading President Obama in the race for the White House. Forty-four percent of registered voters say they are more likely to vote for “the Republican Party’s candidate” and 39% for Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, according to Gallup’s June update. The current five-percentage-point edge for the generic Republican is not a statistically significant lead, and neither side has held a meaningful lead at any point thus far in 2011.

Romney, Palin Lead New Republican 2012 Poll; Herman Cain Debuts Just Behind

Republican 2012 Poll

As a general rule, polls of any kind are nothing short of worthless; except that is (0f course) when we happen to like the results. Like anything in life, they’re subjective – both in the way their conducted and in the way they are received. The one below is certainly no exception; and it would be a stretch to say it even remotely falls into the category of one that I happen to “like.” It examines the 2012 field of Republican candidates in the wake of respective decisions not to run announced by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. It paints a picture of a still very undecided Republican electorate still searching for a legitimate “front-runner.”
