LINDSEY GRAHAM DEAD LAST IN PRESIDENTIAL SURVEY
|| By FITSNEWS || We’ve never had much use for conservative commentator Glenn Beck, but lots of people swear by his opinion … and he frequently opines on presidential politics.
Like his recently released presidential preference poll – in which his readers graded twenty-eight prospective “Republican” candidates on a scale from “100” (a.k.a. “the best score possible”) all the way down to “55,” which is the equivalent of “all F votes.”
The winner? Well it sure as hell wasn’t U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham – whose warmongering flirtation with the White House earned a dismal response from Beck’s audience. In fact Graham finished dead last among the twenty-eight names on Beck’s list – with an average scored of 60.33.
Faring much better? S.C. governor Nikki Haley – who got a 78.19 average score (good for a C-). Haley ranked tenth on Beck’s list, which we’re guessing didn’t include a category for … you know what, never mind.
So … who “made the grade” according to Beck’s faithful? Only two candidates – Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.
Take a look …
28. Lindsey Graham 60.33 D-
27. Jeb Bush 61.94 D-
26. Chris Christie 62.96 D-
25. Jon Huntsman 67.47 D
24. Mike Huckabee 68.26 D+
23. Donald Trump 68.33 D+
22. Haley Barbour 68.42 D+
21. Rob Portman 71.10 C-
20. Kelly Ayotte 71.71 C-
19. John Thune 71.86 C-
18. Mitt Romney 71.97 C-
17. Susana Martinez 73.77 C
16. Carly Fiorina 74.09 C
15. Mike Pence 74.69 C
14. John R. Kasich 75.13 C
13. John Bolton 77.50 C+
12. Rick Santorum 77.55 C+
11. Paul Ryan 78.06 C+
10. Nikki Haley 78.19 C+
9. Sarah Palin 80.13 B-
8. Marco Rubio 81.61 B-
7. Rick Perry 82.25 B-
6. Bobby Jindal 85.12 B
5. Rand Paul 85.73 B
4. Allen West 87.55 B+
3. Ben Carson 88.99 B+
2. Scott Walker 92.02 A-
1. Ted Cruz 92.47 A-
We like what we’ve seen of Cruz and Walker so far – and of Jindal. And we’re inclined to give Paul every opportunity to impress us as well. As for the rest of that list? Eh … pretty weak. In fact the deeper you go, the weaker it gets …
Of course let’s face it … looking for a national savior within the “Republican” party is like looking for a virgin in a whorehouse. You can look, but …
@fitsnews Walker for the win. At least so far he's the best of the worst

And don’t forget boys and girls – buy more gold.
We don’t even sell you gold, just shitty coins that aren’t worth half what you pay for them. But hey, fiat currency is due to become toilet paper any millennium now, so be afraid! It’s easier to scam you that way.
Thanks for the air time Glenn!
I bought a bunch of commemorative gold plated coins from the Franklin mint. Will that do?
I prefer to buy the 100% gold plate coins sold on late night television. They’re just as good and only $10. + shipping and handling.
I’m gettin me some survival seeds. Kindly listen to Glenn to find out how you can put some of these here “seeds” in the ground an food gonnal come up later on n such. I’m gonna have a loaf a bread when armagedun comes to kick butt n take some names.
….and make sure you buy that food insurance!
One does have to admit gold has never gone to zero in value.
Now it can also be said for currencies. They just get so a truck load won’t buy anything.
Glenn Beck… Conservative??
BBwwahahahahaha. Libtard from HELL. Right up there with Pannity and Lib-Baugh
Ooh fuck, a TrueConservative. BBwwahahahahaha!
Come on now, it isn’t polite to laugh at the mentally challenged.
At some point you fellows are going to be so far off the charts you’ll consider your thoughts from 5 minutes ago liberal.
It would appear that Beck’s audience is as fucked up as he is.
Brian, can you report to the world the emotion you felt when you watched Lee surrender at Appomattox?
+10 Best retort of the week!
Just imagine how Williams must have felt as he pulled the trigger on UBL! Phit..,phit…phit! Dropped him. Maybe at least he’ll donate the press creds he was carrying at the time to the Smithsonian or something.
Yes, but very well armed.
Doesn’t he has some terminal disease or something he was crying about a couple months back? Just fucking die already, Glenn.
I was with Glenn when he got the diagnosis. Obamacare saved his life.
Anyone with any connection to the backroom operations of the Republican Party knows that Graham’s presidential exercise has nothing to do with him actually getting elected President.
Graham will play a larger role in the near future. < that is a period
Secretary of Defense or State? I would love to see FaFaFolk’s reaction.
My guess is Graham runs interference for any Ron Paul types this cycle(the claim was RP hurt the “real” conservatives last primary) to help the establishment Republicans and his payoff is VP or a high level cabinet position.
Even twinkle toes must know he’s not electable.
Maybe, but he’s probably brighter than the lot of them, not that is saying much.
Fits doesn’t care for Beck,yet seems to have the same political preferences as his audience.
Maybe Fits ought to watch Glen a little more and he can discover what this is all about.
Is FITS *actually* talking about a poll of Glenn Beck reader/viewers as if it somehow correlates to reality? Allen West and Sarah Palin both made the top ten. Nuff said…
Scott Walker is number two among Beck’s crazies and yet he won three elections in a blue state. Scott is looking good.
The fact that Walker flunked out of college is a big plus with Republicans. It gives him instant cred as stupid.
He was in good standing when he left college.
Best dropout money can buy!
Tom Steyer finds Havard and Yale (Obama, Hillary) a lot cheaper.
Hillary has a law degree, Dumb@$$……I think that does more to discredit education than Richland 1 schools…
Just proves he’s not elitist.
He withdrew when he was “a senior in good standing.” Who does that?! The whole “elitist” meme wasn’t around back then.
I’ve met a great number of educated idiots in my time. Also met a couple of billionaires that never finished high school.
So your point is?
I didn’t comment on Scott, only that including known election losers with ZERO national electability or cred invalidates the poll in toto. That doesn’t render everyone in the poll combat inecffetive…
Even Crazies get to vote.
I’m sure once they read your rejection of them, they’ll quit….
Because the media feeds you every word that comes out of your mouth…and they know everything…just ask Brian Williams and Dan Rather….LMAO…
And when you, or if the failed SCPSD Digest returns, endorse these candidates they will immediately suspend campaign operations. The Big T Kiss of Death! LMAO…a guy with a political “blog” who knows nothing about politics…and even less about sports. Coach Ward get fired yet? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
You need to get a new pony…Not only is that one-trick old…it makes you look like a Dumb@$$…
Crickets….?????….Come on, SR…
I asked a very simple question…Here’s your chance to be BIGTIME. To be relevant…and BLOG your opinion to all…
Do you support Ward, and the Defensive coaches staying at SC???…???
Are you bashing Spurrier for hiring Hoke???
It’s easy to attack w/ your delusional Bull-S#!t…but I’m asking you to be coherent for a minute…
So Saluda Rapids…since you’re scared S#!*less to commit to any comment, can I consider this your FAILED BLOG…
Don’t you say I QUIT, and that’s a sign of my failure???….So you are FAILED in your fear to express any idea on the record, other than hatred for me…and hopes for my demise…
When it comes to Substance…you CHOKED!!!!
It was not a poll. In spite of Fits calling it a poll, each voter ranked all the candidates. So, the presence of non credible candidates has no effect, every voter ranked Walker somewhere on their list.
That’s a poll, friend. Polling consists of many forms in addition to the simplest phone / web “who you gonna vote for” type. The presence of the fringey, second (and third) tier candidates *is* relevant because the names came from the same pool of participants. So, a candidate’s presence in the poll results doesn’t impugn their viability, but the presence of the fringies impugns the relevance of the group polled. That was my only point.
Your candidate is Hillary Clinton….LMAO…And you’re attacking the Republicans….Hahahaha…Are you that F*#king Stupid, or what???
I would call you an idiot, but I think we’ve worn that theme out on here. How does thinking Glenn Beck is kooky make one a Hillary Clinton supporter. Damn, you’re an idiot. Shit…said it again.
You ignorant F*#king Cliche…You walk in lockstep, with the rest of the lemming Dumb@$$#$ like you…champing at the bit to bash Palin, West and Beck…when the Democrats are holding up Hillary Clinton as the standard bearer…
Either you’re just an easily-led, independent dolt…or you’re being manipulated into looking like a Dumb@$$…
Either way, you need to STFU if all you can do is attack the people trying to FIX the mess your Democrat @$$#$ made…
“You ignorant F*#king Cliche.”
There’s a reason cliche’s exist Big T, it’s because they are true most of the time.
Not when empty-headed idiots, who never offer an original thought repeat them, void of any semblance of intelligence.
No, he got it right. And that fact that sucktard Carson came in third proves what effing idiots these people are. And you. Prepare to endorse another bunch of losers.
You’re endorsing Hillary, right?
We are moving to have your website taken down and your internet service terminated by your current provider. You have repeatedly violated the law and your ISP’s TOS. You are finished. You will see – soon (echo echo echo).
If someone sees GT’s car, I hope they slap a big ol’ Hillary in 2016 bumper sticker on it.
So that means you are commmitting to Hilliary as your candidate?….
Sounds to me like he’s only committing to minor vandalism of your Mom’s car…
Do you have ANY idea how trite you are?…If you have no more depth than that…why bother???
I’ll take “depth” insults from you all day. You write your comments using symbols like a comic strip and multiple terminal punctuation. I’m fully at peace with our respective places in the intellectual food chain.
Ignorance is bliss…you know…LMAO….You do have that going for you…. (:
It amazes me anyone still listens to this crybaby anymore.
Hailey at number 10 ! She passed the sniff test!
I shutter to think what sniff test this is…
The Republicans should heed Beck’s poll and nominate Cruz. He could prove another Alf Landon.
Is that anything like a Hillary Clinton????….LMAO….
Gotta go all the way to C before you find anyone who’s got any chance at all.
The multiple voters will not support Hillary. That’s the only way Obama won with such a horrible job he did from 08 to 12. …your @$$ is toast…
It’s got to P!$$ off the FITS-Moderates that Gary “Global-Warming” Johnson is not in it (I didn’t see his name, anyway)…
And the FITS-Moderate candidates are all near last place…I think the people are Sick of nominating non-Conservatives…We need a TRUE Republican, in the Reagan mold, to talk to Liberals and the media, like I talk to them…
We are BEGGING for a non-apologetic, pro-American Leader…
We’ll get one this time, I think…and he will beat Hillary (excuse me while I laugh at her)……And it will take a hero to clean up the mess Obama and the Democrat Party has made of the country….
He used to look like a dork.Now,he looks like a dork.
Sarah Palin anywhere on that list, not to mention 9th, tells me his readers might be just a little smarter than a brick.
Don’t ever forget a brick can bash in your skull.
Land of The Lost. The Slestacks Rule….ssssss. Vote Teabaggers..Sssss
Everyone has an early opinion, and that often yields questionable results. It will be a while before the real nut-cracking selection time comes, and it will probably be someone in his top ten. My money is on Walker, Rubio,or Cruz, in that order.
My blind cat Mit-Mit and her deaf sister Choo-Choo know more about politics than this guy.
Ted Cruz is not a natural born citizen. You people are shooting yourself in the foot after you claimed Obama wasn’t even though he had a birth certificate, meanwhile it is out in the open that Ted Cruz was born in Calgary Canada. Sure one parent of his was an American born citizen, but you have to be born on American soil…hypocrits.
