    Who will be the Republican nominee in 2016?

    Same idea as this thread: http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...ee-2016-a.html

    Pick not who you want, but who you think will be the Republican nominee in 2016. This is assuming that Mitt Romney loses this election cycle.

    Obviously Jeb Bush.

    1) They already know how to spell his name
    2) We've had 2 other Bush dynasty members
    3) They already know how to spell his name

    I thought about including him, but he recently said that 2012 was "his time" to run.

    should Romney lose, my guess is Paul Ryan.

    if not 2016, then eventually. i hope that i'm wrong. privatizing medicare would be a big mistake.

    Desperation will win out. After 8 years of Obusha, we can return to the Bushes.

    Not sure Christie has genuine presidential aspirations, and Ryan is a bit too controversial to be considered a safe bet, so I'll go with Rubio. He seems to have an incredibly devoted (bordering on cult like) following already, however since this is a hypothetical scenario that involves Romney losing, that may largely hinge on whether or not Rubio is picked as VP, and whether he keeps his nose clean and remains in the good graces of GOP voters in a losing effort.

    I'll go with Rob Portman. Could go to any of the guys up there and a few who aren't, but I think Portman could be the type of guy to gather some national momentum.

    I picked Rick Santorum, because he's the only one who ran in this years race. It's his turn.
    Plus if the R's keep listing to the extreme right, he'll be a moderate.

    Someone with no intellectual integrity who's entire platform is misinformation and hyperbole and who is propped up by corporate money. In other words, business as usual.
