More “First In The South” Polling

TRUMP’S DOMINANCE CONTINUES … CARSON MAKES HIS MOVE || By FITSNEWS || Donald Trump remains the runaway leader in early voting South Carolina according to a new “First in the South” presidential poll released this week.

|| By FITSNEWS || Donald Trump remains the runaway leader in early voting South Carolina according to a new “First in the South” presidential poll released this week.

The poll – provided to The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper by North Carolina-based Public Policy Polling (PPP) – shows Trump receiving 37 percent of the vote.  Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is in second place with 21 percent, while the remaining fifteen candidates are all polling in single digits.

In case you care about their standing, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas each received six percent support, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Ohio governor John Kasich each received four percent support while former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina were all tied at three percent.

Also of interest?  A whopping 80 percent of South Carolina voters want Graham – their home-state senator – to drop out of the presidential race (something we think he should have done a long time ago).  Graham’s favorability has plunged from 54 percent in February to 36 percent this month.

PPP surveyed 764 “Republican” voters from September 3-6.  The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

Democrats are screwed September 9, 2015 at 8:23 am

Suffice it to say: if you are a Democrat, it’s time to shit your pants. Hillary is your first string, and if she’s indicted, Joe Biden is the second string. Excuse me while I laugh my ass off. (:

Democrats don’t have ONE SINGLE CANDIDATE that could come close to the integrity, accomplishment, character, competence and ability of SEVERAL GOP candidates.

We just have to make sure we nominate a TRUE CONSERVATIVE..not a FITS-Level Moderate-Libertarian, like was don in ’08 and ’12.

You and your ilk never thought Obama would win in 2008 or that he would be re-elected in 2012.

It’s a Presidential election year, I wouldn’t count on another 2010/2014 scenario.

THERE we have it.The self-appointed FitsNews prognosticator of elections that has NEVER predicted ONE winner in a political election telling us that even with the black Muhammed polling at 30%, the Democrats leading candidate getting ready to be indicted, a communist as the back up and a racist,plagerizing,brain injured pervert in the bull pen-the DEmocrats are primed for victory in 2016.

Larry Sabato has the republicans holding the senate,house and two thirds of governorships.

What a damn fool you are.Dumber than my husband.

FlipsUglyKids September 9, 2015 at 9:27 am

Which would clearly suggest the GOP picks up the White House in 2017, except that the only candidate you have is a joke (Trump). All the real Republicans are polling at 6%.Your party can’t even elect a real leader. Geesh!!!!

rockyverdudsuglywife September 9, 2015 at 9:33 am

Gonna be a landslide! This election is about DENYING Obama a 3rd term and an elections of the 2014 elections.

I even think Bush would win now and the polls suggest such.

21stconfed September 9, 2015 at 8:53 am

you are thinking of politics in a one dimension way, which is incorrect. Politicians are not along a line of conservative to liberal and everyone is in between.The democrats or republicans like clinton, bush, mccain, and romney are very similar because they agree about how to use power to their ends. Though socialist in their belief, it is at least believed, Bernie Sanders is principled when it comes to individual rights even though he is an avowed socialist, and many people believed Obama would also be like this, which clearly was not the case. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio(to some anyways) are true conservatives, however this is not true. Although they may be acting by their conscience, which is a good thing, they are not consistent in their policy. The idea that all men are created equal, regardless of where on earth one was born, but the USA can somehow justify anything resembling an aggressive (read preemptive) war is erroneous. It is an understanding that rights do not originate in government but outside the realm of man, so that at least in that respect makes being a citizen of the USA no better than a citizen of Somalia. Ron Paul may have been the best example of a principled and conservative politician. So in conclusion tango, remember x-axis represents a line of principles to power when deciding policy and y-axis demonstrates respect of individual(conservative) rights versus collectivists (socialist) rights.

Somebody better check with Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Party nominee:

But there is another set of government statistics,” Sanders continued, “and that that real unemployment if you include those people who have given up looking for work and the millions of others who are working part-time 20, 25 hours a week when they want to work full-time, when you all of that together, real unemployment is 10.5 percent.”

Rocky Verdad September 9, 2015 at 10:44 am

Flip – I’m being serious now. Your candidate will be Bush. He will likely win, because historically the party in power after 8 years rarely ever holds the white house (only happened twice since WWII – Truman and Pappa Bush). That said, Jeb will NOT touch insurance, except some nibble and claim victory and move on. Health insurance is the new third rail, and if you mess with people’s insurance again, after the issue just settled down, you’ll lose the House and the mid-terms will be a blood bath. Since his largest priority is Immigration – that’s what he’ll focus on. And I can assure you – you will not like it. Obamacare will last past your lifetime and mine. Immigration reform will pass, and will be signed, and will include amnesty and a pathway to citizenship. Mrs. Bush will make sure of that.

flip September 9, 2015 at 10:48 am

100% Bush will NOT be candidate.Trump MAY not be the candidate but he accomplished TWO things….defeated Bush and eliminated any chance for amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegals.

Which means he essentially accomplished THREE things…with the help of Obama-ended the Democrat Party.

Being serious now.

Rocky Verdad September 9, 2015 at 10:55 am

I just disagree. The only other candidate that could win the nomination outside of Jeb is Kasich. The GOP is determined to address the immigration issue humanely and along the lines of the Gang of 8 deal. Come March 15 when we get to Winner Take All States in the Northeast, Midwest and West Coast, Jeb will scoop up delegates.

Also, Aunt Martha’s Oatmeal cookies will be providing free cookies, and deep fried Snickers, and Milwaukee’s Best will provide free beer. The New Aryan Order is supplying free confederate flags for those who can swing by their bunker before 11:30 a.m., and there will be a burning of the Ayatollah stuffed dummy near the WWII Memorial.

William September 9, 2015 at 11:21 am

I think Jeb is about to shake all of this up. He just came out with a bold new tax plan. Jeb is proposing we cut taxes on the wealthy. He says if we do that tax revenues will go up because of the economic growth cutting taxes on the job creators will create. Wow, what a visionary. What and unexpected move.

One of the center pieces of his proposal is to eliminate the estate tax. This is an exquisitely targeted plan to get money to the people that will benefit the country the most. The estate tax only affects couples with a net worth of 10 million or more after debts, so we don’t have to worry about how this move would affect the rift raft. This could put several billion dollars into the hands of the Koch kids alone. Think of how much good they will do with that money. Sheldon Adelson’s family could benefit by about 14 billion and Bush’s family could benefit by about 20 million. And every penny of that will be used to benefit all Americans. Oh wait, no, sorry. The economic growth generated by rewarding these families will benefit all Americans.

I don’t think any of us could have seen this kind of plan coming. It is almost as bold and unexpected as his plan to cut expenses by eliminating Medicare and cutting Social Security. Jeb the Republican rebel reveals himself.
