New Poll Shows Republicans Favoring Bachmann More

June 28, 2011 by  

Bachmann gains some favor with RepublicansA new Associated Press-GfK poll has found that some Republicans are starting to favor a Presidential candidate other than former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

The findings show Representative Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) favorability rating increasing to 54 percent from 41 percent among Republicans. However, Governor Romney still leads with his rating of 61 percent.

The poll was conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications, and surveyed 1,001 adults around the country through landline and cellphone interviews.

Retiree Phyllis Hornung of the State of New York told The Associated Press that Bachmann “captured my heart immediately.”

“There was no question in my mind that she was a straight talker and I should support her,” Hornung added.

In a piece titled Michele Bachmann the Believer, Los Angeles Times columnist Meghan Daum stated she and others were starting to take the candidate seriously.

    Michelle Bachmann is an excellent choice. She is highly qualified and impressively accomplished, and has the right mindset, skills, and heart for the good of our Country. She is not one of the “good ole boys” in Washington DC. She knows and understands the issues, the Constitution, the original intent of our Country’s Constitutional Republic, history, human nature and what it takes to bring these policies and principals in line to get the job done well. And she has a strong backbone to stand up to oposition and anything that would go against our Constitution and what is right. And she is wise to what has been sucessful in the past and what has failed and why. These are only a few as there are many more reasons I am proud to support Michelle Bachmann. So far she is my top choice of all the candidates who are running. I think Jim Demint or Rick Perry would be a good running mate with her, but it will be interesting to see who she would pick. And I would like to see Ron Paul at Treasury. I feel confident that she will surround herself with a good and wise advisory board.

    • Crystal

      Here! Here! I agree 100%.

    • Open

      Although Bachman has talked a good game, my eyes were opened when she voted in favor of extending the so-called Patriot Act. Ron Paul is the only tree that has consistently born good fruit in the matters of liberty and true constitutional conservatism. Those who parrot the msm talking points of being too radical are no better than those who choose candidates with white teeth and custom tailored clothes, from either party. Now we see the gravitation to Paul’s message by other “conservatives” who wish to siphon votes from the man who has won nearly every republican straw poll to date. Look at the records, compare.

        I was interesting in Michelle Bachmann as a politician ever since the 2010 elections.

        Herman Cain has caught my interest since the start of this campaigning. I am not sure about Ron Paul, plenty good in his views but there are some things I have read that suggest I might want to be cautious there. Well, cautious with all of them really. Cain said something that made me leery as well. I agree with many of his bold claims, and maybe that is why I am leery. Too much ingrained distrust of politicians. That distrust can be very healthy when talking about politics.

        So far, these are three that interest me. And even a couple of the others seem okay. I remember that during the primaries leading up to some of the local 2010 elections I was very pleased to listen to some of the debates I could find archived online. Instead of trying to determine the lesser of two evils, my challenge was to guess who was being honest (sounded like many) and who was the better of two imperfect good choices.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Dan,
          Even though Cain preaches a good soundbyte, he worries mw in that he has been on the board of the fed and says a audit is not nessessary!! It is MOST nessessary!!!!!

          • Rock

            I think you need to read in a bit closer to the truth on that one.

          • Jana

            Rock, then help us to find and know the truth. I heard what he said and now I do not feel that it was so bad, but I can’t remember word for word.
            Give us some sites. I do a lot of research, but don’t have the time to research everything.

Don’t worry because I know that on blogs words can easily be misinterpreted. And Joe H. you have given me a reason to look into what you said about Cain. Maybe your right.. I just don’t see how anyone would be for getting rid of auditing all together. That sound really strange..Thats all

  • karolyn

    Sorry! I saw her interviewed by George Stephanopoulos this morning and she has certainly gone down a notch in my book. Granted, I haven’t heard much of what she’s been saying, but she sounded pretty ignorant this morning talking about John Quincy Adams being a founding father working to abolish slavery.

    • libertytrain

      of course when obama is on with him, he corrects obama’s mistakes – like when obama said he was muslim and George corrected him and said you mean Christian — :)

            karolyn,
            Did you miss the part where I said the Wayne/Wayne Gacy story is a pass? A good staff person would not have overlooked this potentially embarrassing moment, but you can’t just blow off how she distorted her family history. And where do you get off telling me that I “whitewash ALL of the lies and misleadings of Obama.”? I’ve researched almost all of the claims against Obama that I have found on this site. I have spoken out against several things he has done and said, but I have also found many of the claims against him to be unfounded. It’s not a matter of partisanship, it’s a matter of facts.

          • Kinetic1

            Whoops! This should have been posted one grouping down.

          • Jana

            kinectic,
            John Wayne’s parents were from Waterloo. The town claims John Wayne as one of their own. Besides, who do you think John Wayne Gacy was named after DUH.

        • Kinetic1

          Cawmun,
          Give it a rest. You can use the victim excuse all you want, but it doesn’t change the fact that Bachmann has some serious problems with the truth. Not that it’s always serious; I heard that she had claimed that John Wayne was born in Warterloo just as she was, but it turned out it was John Wayne Gacy, the mass murderer. It was good for a laugh, but upon further investigation I could see it was something like Obama and the “57″ states, just a mental hiccup. Since Both “Waynes” were born in Iowa and both in “W” cities, I think she gets a pass.

          Now let’s look at the rest of her speech. Talk about problems with history, she can’t even get her own history straight. She claimed to be a 7th generation Iowan, the descendent of Norwegians who immigrated following “… about eighty Norwegians that went ahead of them, and they got a letter back. It was called the Muskego manifesto…” Well, there are a few problems here. First, the manifesto was written and printed in the papers in 1845 and her folks didn’t immigrate until 1857. Second, while census records show that she got the date right, her ancestors, Melchoir and Martha Munson immigrated from Quebec to Wisconson, not Iowa. So maybe that was just a short layover before moving on, right? Wrong.

          Her next big gaff came in describing the troubles they faced when her family: “…finally get to Iowa, where they encountered the worst winter in fifty years. Then the next year — you had a winter like that — the worst flooding in forty-two years. The next winter after that, they had the worst drought that anyone had ever recorded.” Oh, it all happened, but not in Iowa. Those hardships befell them during their stay in the Dakota Territory where they lived from 1861 to 1864. “But they kept going, and they persevered, and they were people of faith, and they lived and cried and laughed, and started the first Lutheran church in their area.” No they packed up and finally made their way to Iowa, 7 years after immigrating to America. There they joined thousands, not 80 Norwegians who had settled and established a community.

          So how about her “7th generation Iowan” claim? Well Melchior was born in Norway, so he doesn’t count. Melchior and Martha brought their son, Bachmann’s great great grandfather Halvor with them, so he wasn’t a native either. Halvor’s son Thomas was the first to be born in Iowa, but he moved to Kansas for a short time, during which his daughter, Michelle’s grandmother Anna was born. The family moved back to Iowa when Anna was still quite young, so maybe you would count her (though I wouldn’t) but as an adult Anna had moved to Minnesota where Bachman’s father, David John Amble was born.

          No matter how you cut it, Bachmann is not even close to being a 7th generation American let alone Iowan. She is at best 4th generation, if you choose to ignore the 3 breaks in the chain. Remember, this was a prepared speech with plenty of time to get the facts straight. Maybe this was just campaign strategy, but if she treats her own history this fast and loose to try and gain favor with Iowans what else can we expect? She made a big deal about what she learned growing up in Iowa, but a few years ago her website made the same noise about growing up in Minnesota! Next time we’ll look at the questions surrounding her education.

          • Jana

            Kinectic,

            John Wayne’s parents were from Waterloo, which in most cases the town then claims him too.
            Of course you condemn her and whitewash ALL of the lies and misleadings of Obama.

            Well said, Jana. How can he also try to remove the beam from another persons eye, but doesn’t remove the one from his eyes first? Obama has told nothing but lies and is full of Childish disdain for this country. I look forward to voting against him next year. Thank you.

He would LOVE to see 7.2% again!!!! The words a person uses are just that, WORDS! His actions, now are a completely different thing!!! Don’t get so caught up in the little gaffes and miss an action that might ruin you for life!!

    • David Dillon

      Karolyn, I didn’t see the interview to which you alluded, but if you think she was ignorant in saying John Quincy Adams was opposed to slavery, the joke is on you. Here is the following from Wikipedia:
      “Animated by his growing revulsion against slavery, Adams became a leading opponent of the Slave Power and argued that if a civil war ever broke out the president could abolish slavery by using his war powers, a correct prediction of Abraham Lincoln’s use of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. Adams predicted the Union’s dissolution over the slavery issue, but said that if the South became independent there would be a series of bloody slave insurrections.”

  • LibRep

    Bachmann is a wolf in TEA Party clothing. If she’s for smaller government, why did she vote “YES” to the Patriot Act last month?

    I’m with Rosco – Ron Paul 2012!!

    • Jana

      Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) released the following statement upon voting for the expiring national security provisions tonight:

      “This evening I was faced with a vexing vote on three national security measures that would expire at midnight. I know there are strong opinions about these provisions, and I am convinced they will continue to stem the very real threat of terrorism on our soil.

      “For decades, law enforcement has had access to roving wiretaps and the ability to subpoena business records, and our national security community must continue to catch terrorists through the same methods. Civil liberties in these instances are still upheld because court orders are necessary before action can be taken.

      “Since 9/11, we have seen our intelligence community break up terrorist plots and keep our citizens safe. By upholding these provisions, we will ensure that the threats of modern terrorism are addressed.”

      I know this had to have been a tough decision after all the Patriot Act can be abused, and we all see how Obama wants to abuse it by controlling what we do ie: the internet.
      Our country is still in danger of terrorists, and we need the national Security Agencies to be able to do their jobs. We do need a provision however to protect us from the likes of Obama.

        Our country in danger of terrorists? I’m trying to find the article that had several things listed that were more likely to happen than another terrorist attack on American Soil. The Constitution is the protection we need from Obama. I have read the very possible reason Obama is wreaking the economy on purpose is so he can declare martial law when all Hell breaks lose.

        Bachmann didn’t need to vote “Yes” on an un-Constitutional bill when the security agencies we have in place have their own mandates and missions to follow.

    George Stephanopoulos is a ‘hard’ liberal interviewer and tries to make people stumble with the way he phrases his sentences. I give Michelle B. big time credit for keeping cool and trying to answer his questions in a manner that is fitting of a presedential candidate. She would have to be a walking encyclopedia to know all the answers about every detail in history. She handled herself well on ‘Good morning, America’ even if history details were not her strong point. Give her a chance! She wants to help America grow not kill it!

  • jopa

    I would have to choose Ron Paul over Bachman any day.It is okay to make a few slip-us in speeches every now and then but she is at fifteen and counting.I would not call her a flake as Fox news does but she received her degree from the same place as George W Bush and they seem to have too many of the same characteristics.She seems like a nice person but no qualifications as a leader.The presidency is nothing to take lightly and it is wise to use your best judgment and really listen to what she is saying.Mostly riddles and slogans and no answers to the issues.

    • Rock

      I trust Bachman and Cain 100 fold over those politicians. Education is very important when its put to use for growth in a healthy way. And its also far from having a solid foundation for excellence. Look at our nation today! Those in power don’t care about common sense. We have extremely smart people doing foolish things in office. I don’t think you have ever stated a business or created jobs. You sound like one of those guys that is really concerned about how you look smart in front of others and can’t handle embarrassment. We don’t need more smart people, we need people who have planted there flag on something bigger than themselves. Love is the most powerful force in human nature! I trust and appreciate both Cain and Bachman!

      She is more qualified than the current president. She has 6 years of experience as compared to Obama with practically 0, not connections to George Soros and the Bilderburgs, she has faith in God, she says what she means and doesn’t back down, and people like you try to look for the little things that don’t matter. Her marriage is real, is Obama’s? She is a Christian, is Obama? She loved and raised her children plus twenty three other children, does Obama really love his children? No one is pulling her strings, how about Obama? It seems we have some growing up to do before we vote next year. Thank you.

  • Steve

    Qualifications are not a requirement to be president of the United States, just look at what we have now.

    • Harold Olsen

      You’re half right! Qualifications matter if you are a Republican and/or conservative. Qualifications don’t matter if you are a Democrat and/or liberal. Just watch, the left and the brain dead media will go after her by saying she is not qualified to be president. After two plus years, Obama has shown that he definitely is not qualified to be president. But, since he is a liberal (national socialist) Democrat, it doesn’t matter, except to people who really care about this country.

  • Stephan F.

    Michelle Bachmann is smart, articulate, well-intentioned, and frankly, I find her very appealing. And if nominated, she would obviously get my vote over the current fascist-in-chief.

    However, she, like the rest of the neo-con laced field does not meet my version of the gold standard for a presidential candidate. There’s only one who does:

    Let’s see… Romney and Huntsman = Obama. Santorum couldn’t hold his own state. As much as I like Ron Paul, he cannot win the hearts of Conservative Christian America (which you need if you are to win) with his very liberal social views. Gingrich has too many flip flops and cannot even manage his own campaign team. Herman Cain supported tarp, bailouts, and romney and was a chair of one of the fed banks. pawlenty cannot even own up to a simple comment about Obomney care.
    Bachmann for Peresident!

    • Rock

      What makes you think that Pawlenty is not owning up to his comment? How about his focus on solutions? Maybe he believes like me to always behave cordial even if its your enemy. I have always thought the libs looked like fools as all they know how to do is point fingers. I think Bachman as well as Cain have a better chance though!

  • vivianclare

    I’m sick of people tauting Ron Paul. He’s a niche candidate with limited appeal who looks and sounds cranky, and makes zero sense in anything having to do with foreign policy. He completely shocked me with his stance on the killing of Osama Bin Laden. He said that we had no right to go in and get him out of Pakistan, and that we should not have killed him, but should have brought him to trial in the U.S. Anyone who believes that we need to give U.S. civil justice to foreign enemies is someone without the slightest discernment. He would be a disaster for the GOP. He is completely irresponsible on the subject of drug legalization, and the fact that he is so incensed about this issue demonstrates his lack of balance. I’m very disappointed that so many conservative people have uncritically accepted his jaundiced viewpoints.

    • Harold Olsen

      As I keep saying, I think Ron Paul is a nut job! Michelle Bachmann is not my favorite candidate but I’d have no problem voting for her should she get the nomination. And, it would not be a case of voting for the lesser of two evils, which I won’t do ever again!

    Mitt Romney is going to be the GOP candidate this year, I’m sure of it. I don’t want him to be the candidate but I believe he will be anointed by the party and the party sheep will go along with it just because the party says so. I do not believe the party will support Michelle Bachmann or Herman Cain or any other candidate that is not part of the party elite.

    I absolutely will not vote for Romney if he is the candidate. Nor will I vote fore Gingrich, Giuliani, Pawlenty or Paul. I will vote for Bachmann if she gets the nomination, though I’d prefer Herman Cain. There are some things about Bachmann that bother me, but they are not enough for me to not vote for her. But, as I said, I’d rather vote for Herman Cain.

    Michelle Bachman is a better choice than most that we have seen so far. Most everybody has problems that make them less than perfect candidates – however any one of them would be preferable to the dictator we have now – except maybe Romney or Huntsman – after all – Harry Reid just recently came out in support of Huntsman – imagine that!While Ron Paul has good ideas about the economy and the fed., he is sorely lacking when it comes to any other policies – not to mention that he is far too radical to garner the independent voter’s support. Sarah Palin – while a strong voice for conservative causes – has lost my respect simply because she refused to finish the job she was voted to do. No amout of excuses will ever change the fact that she is a quiter with her own agenda. So until another “Regan” comes along to set thinigs on the right track I will have to back Bachmann.

    I don’t think Sarah Palin would be a good candidate after she went after big in Alaska resulting in larger welfare checks for each Alaskan citizen.She touts this as one of her accomplishments.Anti big business does not sit well with us Conservatives does it?

  • jopa

    Should have read “big oil in Alaska”.

  • BUCK CROSBY

    I favor Bachmann over Romney , I favor everyone but gingrich over Romney , I am still trying to decide between Bachmann and Cain , and if Palin joins in I will be even more torn . I have never voted for a democrat for president but I am also tired of voting for the lesser of two evils , so this time if the nomination goes to an apparatchik of the party I am voting democrat because America loses either way .

  • BUCK CROSBY

    In answer to cheeky , Sarah Palin quit her governorship because she was forced into it to save her state from the cost of all the phony lawsuits ,” none of which won “, by the progressive a——s who were scared to death of her . A very noble reason for quiting .

      BUCK CROSBY,
      I agree, it was a very valid and noble reason for quitting. She took a hit for her state. Way to go Sarah!

      • Harold

        Jana, I agree, she did a great and noble thing for her state

    MSNBC,didnt carry that much information on the subject…so they dont know.-CC.

    I am an Independent voter and Ron Paul is my favorite. Michelle Bachmann would be a second choice for me.

    sarah palin will run and will be elected president. she has more guts than any of the candidates, hands down. why do you think the bolsheviks bad mouth her so much, the media has tried to destroy her and failed. if romney gets the nomination you will see a third party. barry has to go before the country is completely destroyed. i wouldn’t be surprised that hillary gets the nomination for the bolsheviks. if things keep going like they are, barry won’t get the nod. if the wimpy republicans raise the debt ceiling, barry will be a shew in., he will throw enough money around to get all the sheep in tow, then after the election we will be in worse shape than now and barry will be sitting in the white house. dump boehner, mcconnell, cantor, graham, mccain, and all other liberal rino’s.

      You named a couple of Conservatives in there? ?

  • bryan1776

    ron paul is the only choice. bachman supports the bailouts and the (un)patriot act. palin is a power-hungry neocon. we have too many of those already.

    RON PAUL 2012!

      Prove your words on Bachman and Palin! Show me where Palin is power hungry. Show me where Bachman supports the whole patriot act. You made the statements, now back them up with proof.

      • Jana

        Joe H,
        He thinks because she voted for 3 specific measures of the patriot act that were due to expire, and these were vital acts for our security she has to support it all. NOT TRUE.
        Some people go by what they heard and do not do any research for themselves.

    I LIKE MICHELLE BACHMANN, SHE SEEMS TO BE A VERY NICE LADY & ISN’T TOO HARD ON THE EYES, EITHER. SAME COULD BE SAID FOR SARAH PALIN, BOTH ARE VERY LIKEABLE & PRETTY. BUT SADLY, THAT’S ABOUT AS FAR AS IT GOES FOR THEM BOTH. NEITHER ARE WHITE HOUSE MATERIAL, PERIOD. I DON’T MEAN TO SOUND RACIST OR SEXIST HERE, BUT I THINK THE HYPE AROUND PALIN & BACHMANN BOTH CENTER AROUND WANTING TO ELECT THE FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, AFTER THE DEMOC-RATS BEAT US TO THE PUNCH ON ELECTING THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT. EVEN IF THAT OFFENDS ANYBODY, IT NEEDED TO BE SAID & I’M NOT SORRY FOR SAYING IT !!! BUT MOVING PAST THAT, WE ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO ELECT A COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF ON THE BASIS OF GENDER OR RACE. THIS UPCOMING ELECTION IS WAY TOO IMPORTANT TO GAMBLE AWAY ON SUCH STUPIDITY. IF THERE WERE A FEMALE CANDIDATE, OR BLACK CANDIDATE WHO I FELT WERE UP TO THE JOB, THEY WOULD HAVE MY SUPPORT. BUT THERE ISN’T & THEY DON’T, IT’S JUST THAT SIMPLE. ONLY RON PAUL HAS THE STRENGTH OF CONVICTION & BELIEF IN THE CONSTITUTION & PERSONAL LIBERTY THAT WILL LEAD THIS COUNTRY OUT OF THE ABYSS IT’S BEING SUCKED INTO RIGHT NOW. IT WON’T TAKE TOO MUCH TO UNSEAT OBAMA IN 2012, HE’S DONE THAT FOR US ALREADY, HANDS DOWN. WE NEED A LEADER WHO IS COMPLETELY AGAINST BIG GOVERNMENT, IDIOTIC FORIEGN POLICY, THE FED, UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES, & LIMITING OUR PERSONAL LIBERTY UNDER THE FEAR OF WEAKENING NATIONAL SECURITY. RON PAUL HAS CLEARLY STOOD AGAINST THESE THINGS HIS WHOLE TIME IN OFFICE & HIS VOTING RECORD IN CONGRESS PROVES IT BEYOND THE SHADOW OF A REASONABLE DOUBT. WE NEED TO QUIT WASTING TIME ON CANDIDATES WHO WILL FALL SHORT OF OUR EXPECTATIONS WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN, AS THEY CERTAINLY WILL BE ON THE WAY BACK TO THE TOP AGAIN. IT CAN STILL BE DONE, BUT ONLY WITH THE RIGHT LEADERSHIP TO SHOW THE WAY BACK TO REAL FREEDOM. THINK ABOUT THIS, PEOPLE !!! WE NEED A LEADER WHO WILL TAKE A FIRM STANCE AGAINST BULL$#!T LIKE THE (SO-CALLED) PATRIOT ACT & KEEP THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF THE BAILOUT BUSINESS & DOESN’T HAVE A “GOD COMPLEX”. RON PAUL’S VOTING RECORD IN CONGRESS PROVES HE’S THE ONE FOR THE JOB THIS TIME AROUND. CAN WE AFFORD TO ELECT SOMEBODY WHO DOESN’T HAVE HIS UNWAVERING RECORD OF FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, LIBERTY, & COMMON SENSE GOVERNMENT AT THE MOST CRUCIAL POINT IN OUR HISTORY ? THIS NEXT ELECTION’S FOR ALL THE MARBLES & WE SIMPLY CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE. THINK ABOUT THIS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU’RE LEAD ASTRAY TO VOTE FOR THE NEXT OBAMA, OR EVEN WORSE (GOD FORBID, ROMNEY !!!). R3VOLUTION, BABY !!! RON PAUL 2012 !!!!

      You sound honest! And maybe your right but I really don’t think republicans generally judge people by their color or gender. We desire leadership bottom line. there is always some yes that get excited just because the candidate is black. That is not me and I strongly feel its not many. But you could be right.. I will look at Paul more closely! I am not leaning for anyone in particular now. But I know I would vote strongly for at least 5 of them. The question is who will step up and lead the conversation against Obama. Who is capable of shaping the conversation for a healthy way to get our message across. Who has that skill?

  • Pete

    I would rather look at Michele Bachmann for the next 4 years on TV !! So let’s send Obama packing !!! Brains and Beauty – that describes her all right !!!!

    Now if only Sarah Palin would be the Vice President !! That sure would be awesome !!! Two hot babes in office at the same time ! I would quit the Libertarian Party and become a Republican !!!
