Mainstream Media Fears Both Palin and Bachmann: Preview of 2016

Original post made by Libertarian, Birdland, on Mar 21, 2013

The mainstream media is already annointing Hilary Pantsuit Clinton to be the royal successor to his holiness Barack Obama. Please note that none of the polls have pitted her against either Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann.

Mrs. Clinton, who shows the most strength of any potential 2016 aspirant in Quinnipiac University's national polls, leads Jeb Bush 51-40 percent and bests Sen. Rubio 52-41 percent in a poll of Sunshine State registered voters.

A long time to go, but what exactly is the event that is going to knock Clinton down between now and the start of the 2016 campaign season (which starts in two years)? Also of interest was the following: Clinton wins 44 percent of whites (45 against Rubio), 86 percent of African Americans, 62 percent of Latinos (57 percent against Rubio).

And of course, women go for Clinton big—56-36.

And this is in Florida, against the two most popular Republicans in the state, Bush and Rubio. This finding is confirmed by the latest PPP poll:

Hillary Clinton is a good deal more popular than either Bush or Rubio in the state, and would lead both of them by double digits in hypothetical match ups. 56% of voters have a favorable opinion of her compared to 37% with a negative one. She leads Bush 53/40 and Rubio 56/40 head to head, and also has a 54/41 advantage over Paul Ryan. She leads the Republicans by margins of 17-24 points with independents.

You know, they didn't include my Aunt Edna, either. She lives in Florida, and has about as much chance against Hillary as Palin or Bachmann.

Do you really not see that Palin is in it for the money -- which was better as a Talking Head than as Governor of an empty state, at least until even Faux Fables tired of her act? And you haven't seen Bachmann around much because she came within a whisker of losing her House seat to a political novice. Her ship has sailed, as well.
