    Who Is The Current Leader of the Republican Party?(republicans/Conservatives only)

    Mitt Romney's loss creates GOP leadership vacuum - Yahoo! News

    I have seen similar type articles several times since the election, and I really don't know how much credence to give them. So who is the leader of the party now. I would ask that only republicans and conservatives(libertarians count too) actually vote in the poll since I am not interested in who us democrats and liberals see as their leader. Who is the leader, with the most influence on the direction of the party?

    Reince Priebus
    John Boehner
    Mitch McConnell
    Paul Ryan
    Grover Norquist

    The gop is at a make or break as I see it...they had better realize that in 15-20 yrs the largest block of white voters who will not be replaced will be gone thats ME the babyboomers...we will not be replaced by as large a white group. The gop can no longer win on the white vote with a few women and minorities...The way I see it they have to change now they cant wait till were dead and gone. thats only my opinion now and not gospel lol

    Ok Its huntsman that impressed me as a reasonable inteligent guy..social liberal and fiscally conservative...I dont know how those two ideals will mesh together in real application though...they seem to oppose each other

    There are "senior" members of both parties but I think it is very rare for the party out of the White House to have a clear leader.

    Redress wants a name of who we think will actually take over...and I dont see how we can really even assume who at this point.

    Re: Who Is The Current Leader of the Republican Party?(republicans/Conservatives only

    I have never considered Mitt Romney a GOP leader, he sort of won by default in the GOP presidential primary. The GOP has many better presidential propects, but that does not necesserily make them become the party leaders. Party leadership is a full time job just as running for (or being) president is, so one person can not wear both hats effectively. As far as the 2016 GOP presidential race I favor Jindal, Rubio or Haley as good possibilities. The GOP, IMHO, has to get off of the social issues and focus on the economy and returning the federal gov't back to its Constitutionally limitted powers. A good start is real FIT reform, entitlement (SS/Medicare) reform, immigration reform and getting rid of DOEd completely, scaling back all 83 federal "welfare" programs into a single federal entity and reducing it (by about 75%) to become a truely temporary safety net, not a way of life.

    I wouldn't really consider any of them to be a clear leader. Of those, I think Boehner probably would be the closest to it.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting
