Glenn Beck Rolls Out His Poll Results …




|| 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.

Yikes …

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 …

Interesting …

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 …
