Zombie Poll: Vote For Your Favorite Republican Presidential Candidate

This particular poll excludes Ron Paul.

And Mitt Romney….

And Newt Gingrich….

Actually, it excludes, ALL of them.

Which is a good thing.

Since Herman Cain bowed out, I’ve had little to say about the Republican candidates because I’ve been so full of despair over the situation. Damnit! How did we end up with such a weak field?

I want a do-over.

Zombie expresses almost exactly what I’ve been thinking for the past month or so:

Newt Gingrich? Newt Gingrich????? The guy peaked nearly 20 years ago. Compromised, corrupt, amoral. He has about as much chance of winning the general election as do Calvin Coolidge’s decomposing remains.

Ron F-ing PAUL?????????????? The most charitable thing I can say about him is: Joke candidate. Wrong, wrong, wrong. If he gets the Republican nomination, I would actually stay home on election day, as would most voters forced to choose between a communist and a madman.

Michele Bachmann’s vaccine conspiracies have doomed her as a viable mainstream nominee, unfortunately, even though she is the most likeable of all the candidates and I would have gladly voted for her, “crazy eyes” notwithstanding.

Rick Perry has already made far too many unforced errors, and his extreme social conservative activism has turned off many Constitutionally-minded voters like myself who worry that if he wins he’ll use his power not to shrink government but to meddle in Americans’ private lives. No thank you.

Herman Cain: Toast.

Rick Santorum: If we were all in hell, I’d put my money on the snowball.

Huntsman, Johnson and the rest: Who?

Which leaves us only with Mitt Romney. He’s the sole Republican in the current field who even has a ghost of a chance at beating Obama, but as many have noted, he’s an old-school-checked-pant-double-talking-insider-flip-flopping pseudo-Republican who looks, talks and acts like a phony. I’d still vote for him over Obama, but only out of desperation; I’d rather have a president with magic underwear than an emperor with no clothes. But the growing tide of anti-Mormon bigotry in this country means that I fear few would join me in this protest vote.

Which of the undeclared Republican presidential candidates are your favorites? (Choose up to three.) Vote here.

  • Allen West (46%, 145 Votes)
  • Paul Ryan (42%, 133 Votes)
  • Marco Rubio (42%, 132 Votes)
  • Sarah Palin (31%, 98 Votes)
  • Chris Christie (31%, 97 Votes)
  • Bobby Jindal (24%, 74 Votes)
  • Other (name your choice in the comments section below) (4%, 14 Votes)
  • None; I prefer one of the existing Republican candidates (2%, 6 Votes)
  • They’re all stinkers; I plan to vote for Obama (0%, 1 Votes)

Zombie’s dead serious. His post is titled, Barack Obama Will Still Be President on January 19, 2017 which he believes will be the case unless something drastic happens:

I might seem lighthearted about all this, but I am actually deadly serious. A lame-duck Obama will have four years of not worrying about re-election to complete his conscious destruction of American capitalism and constitutionalism. It’s too hideous to even contemplate. And, aside from a long-shot chance by the slightly-better-than-a-crash-test-dummy Romney, none of the current candidates has any chance whatsoever to defeat Obama.

I know the public is waiting for an end to the unfunny charade known as the 2012 Republican Party nomination, so the real battle — between, for example, West, Palin and Rubio — can begin.

Let’s make it happen. You and I. Stop sitting on our hands waiting for a miracle.

Choose your favorite(s) from the six (temporarily) non-candidates above, and join the popular uprising to get some or all of them to change their minds.

    Anyone and I mean ANYONE would be an improvement over Obama. Can’t go wrong so long as the party is fractured. (No third party candidates from the right)

    Coolidge’s remains would still be smart enough not to make “government” the default answer to every issue.

    Newt? Notsomuch.

    Deb, I love your site. Long time follower. But, with all due respect, this post is ridiculous. This is calling for a brokered convention. The last time that happened was 1948 – the Republicans finally settled on Thomas Dewey to face off against the incredibly unpopular Truman. That completely split the Republican party, managing to pull defeat from the jaws of certain victory.

    I’m with Thomas Sowell and Rush on this one – give me Gingrich. http://www.wolfhowling.blogspot.com/2011/12/thomas-sowell-endorses-newt-gingrich.html Those who, like Zombie, focus on Gingrich’s baggage are making a significant error indeed.

    It’s not the personal baggage that bothers me about Gingrich – (I believe people can change), it’s the professional baggage. The working for Fannie and Freddie, agreeing with Pelosi on Global warming, his history of liking the employee mandate, etc. The list goes on. These are huge problems. There’s a lot about Newt to like, (and as I’ve said over and over – I’d vote for any of the Republicans with the possible exception of Paul – over Obama) there’s almost too much baggage there to overcome.

    I really don’t think a brokered convention would be a bad thing at this point.

    Bad answer, to stay home on election day. No matter who wins the presidential election, it is imperative conservatives take total control of both the House and Senate, with veto-proof majorities, and if everyone who wouldn’t vote for Paul under any conditions stays home, then the jackasses win again in a cakewalk.

    Not my idea of a good thing. Besides, if we elect unassailable majorities to both chambers, any communist Obhammud nominates to the SCOTUS can be blocked, and that’s also of paramount importance.

    Good point. I’m sure Zombie simply meant he/she simply wouldn’t vote for President.

    Out of all of the GOP candidates, i would definetly go with Michele Bachmann. I like how she talks about helping create more jobs and how she talks about a smaller government who doesn’t spend more than they make.
