    Actually it puts him Reagan #1 territory. Guess he must have been a pretty awful president.

    44% approval rating last time I checked. If we assume liberal don't approve of his performance either, that means hes likely to have a 50/50 chance of winning the presidency again. We all already knew this, 80% of the country is partisan

    Which is EXACTLY why I'm hoping that the GOP gives its nomination to either Bachman, Palin or Perry. None of which will draw any support from moderates or independents.

    Again, you keep assuming/hoping/wishing thats, the case but the voting public is still far more conservative than liberal; it's roughly a 40/40/20 cut conservative/moderate/liberal, and many self-described mods are actually more conservative than they think when you start asking them specific policy questions.

    Again, anyone who discounts Perry's ability to whup Obama is gravely underestimating him. He is not a noob at this.

    Unemployment is at 9.1% with no signs of a significant drop in the next year, and GDP growth is pegged at an anemic 0.4% per last quarter's most recent revision - down from 1.3% revised in the prior quarter. We are sliding into another recession.

    That's exactly what I am hoping the rest of the GOP believes. In actuality, Perry is such an extremist and there is no way that he draws even a substantial portion of moderates and independents.

    "Your" President's results make him an awful President but what the hell, you are ok thus it doesn't matter about the 25 million unemployed or under employed and no plan to change that

    Exactly want, I wanted to see...the extremist. You made my case which tells me how terrified of him you truly are.

    The media is already in full-blown Sarah Palin mode on him...thats good. Gives him more coverage

    The elites and the left spark such hatred and dismissive attitude towards him because of his folksy demeanor and religion worn as a badge of honor as much as his politics...and thats good

    Bottom line - For those who think Perry is unelectable why the fear?

    No its not lol. Gallup did a survey a little less than a year ago and it said 20% = religious right, 20% = republican, 18ish % = big gov liberals, 20% = "Obama-democrats" (moderate democrats), and the rest = undecided. That means 40% will vote republican regardless, 40% will vote democrat regardless and the remaining ~20% aren't sure. That undecided/independent voter base is getting bigger but its pulling from both sides.

    This means 80% of the country is partisan, and elections are decided by 20% by that 20%. That 20% is very anti-religious extremist. Most will run from a Parry or Bachmann quicker than they ran to Obama on promises of Change

    And repubs don't have a "plan" either. It goes against their philosophy
