WOW! Dem Polling Firm PPP Names Registered Dem George Zimmerman Among Potential 2016 GOP Nominees
by Ben Shapiro 5 Aug 2013
Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling released a poll of Alaskans asking them whom they preferred for the presidency: Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, or George Zimmerman?
Yes, that George Zimmerman--the acquitted shooter of Trayvon Martin.
Why George Zimmerman, a registered Democrat who voted for President Obama in 2008? And why would PPP list Zimmerman, 29, in polls for a presidential election in which he wouldn't even be eligible, at 44 years old? Because, PPP explained to TheBlaze, “He’s had high favorability ratings with Republican voters in some national polls so we were just curious how he would do.” Tom Jenson, PPP director, said that Zimmerman’s ratings for “Democrats is 14/64 compared to 45/27 with Republicans.”
