    Yes, and he did a good job both as Governor and Ambassador to China. And he has the best combination of Executive experience as well as foreign policy experience of anyone as well as a proven conservative track record.

    Brian Sandoval gave in and decided to support Obamacare (AKA Obamadontcare)
    Sandoval did not decide to support Obamacare.

    Susana Martinez won't leave the state for national office because she prefers to stay close to home since she has a disabled sister to take care of.
    Quite possibly true, but if she ever decided to run I'd support him.

    Mike Huckabee is a likeable, honest politician.
    I quite agree, and its very refreshing.

    I like the fact that he's a conservative.
    I don't like the fact that he would likely make social issues a focal point of his campaign. And can look past them for most cadidates but I'm not sure about him.

    There is absolutely no reason why anyone should dislike Ted Cruz. He is actually THE best candidate for President amongst all of them. It shows how deceived America is that they want bad politicians like liberals running this country. It's wrong.
    I have several problems with Ted Cruz.

    For one he is more inexperienced than Obama.

    He is the least electable among the candidates.

    He is by all accounts abrasive and egotistical and has managed to make enemies with the majority of both sides in Congress, making it unlikely he would ever be able to do anything as President.

    His support for the government shutdown was extremely flawed. Everybody could see that it had no chance of working. The best case scenario was a wash and the worst case scenario was that it actually helped the Democrats and Obamacare. Both of their numbers were trending upward quickly before thankfully Republican Senators realized it was a bad idea. If the shutdown had lasted longer or the Obamacare rollout wasn't such a disaster, those Obamacare numbers could've stayed up. The fact that Ted Cruz is so intelligent makes me believe he knew his plan only had chances of helping Obamacare, and yet he decided to do it anyway.

    There's no way I could support him.

    Since there's multiple ways you could possibly be bothered by this I'll go ahead and ask rather than assume.....what about this bothered you?

    THE best candidate?

    So, let me ask you a question. Did you have an issue with the level of Experience Barak Obama had running for President?

    I was at least partially serious about Pitt/Jolie. Find a popular Hollywood conservative and run them on the ticket. It's becoming a twitter/social media nation, use that. Obama has proven you don't need experience to win elections, you just need to know how to advertise effectively.

    America can't really be that stupid, to not vote for the best Senator in the United States.

    As for Congressman Ryan, he supported a plan with liberal Pat Murray to raise the debt ceiling. Unacceptable.

    Electors from the Electoral College cannot vote for 2 candidates from the same state. As in, for President and Vice President. They are married so they likely live together and vote together in the same state.

    When you consider that many people don't even comprehend what's going on here, when it's right in front of them, I doubt it!

    LOL, Good point. It is too much to expect I suppose. But if they would ask me, I would tell them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I know it's early but it's fun to take the time now to speculate and add thoughts. I want to set up different kinds of the same polls - as I feel that they will be more revealing than only doing it one way.

    For example, in some polls, I will have a vote for one. In other polls of the same kind, I'll have a vote for all that you want.

    In this one, it'll be a one-option. It seems these polls here are limited to 10 options, so I'm gonna put the most mentioned prospective candidates and top-tier.

    Ted Cruz
    Rand Paul
    Mike Huckabee
    Marco Rubio
    Chris Christie
    Rick Santorum
    Rick Perry
    Jon Huntsman
    Paul Ryan
    Other (Please specify)
    I'd love to support Rubio, but I'm having trouble getting past his amnesty support. I have a personal experience that really sticks in my craw, and I'm not sure I can get over it. I'd pick Rand Paul if I had to choose right now.

    On the other end, I might be convinced to vote democrat if Rick Perry got the nod. I don't trust him.

    Jeb Bush will be the next President of the United States - can't believe you didn't place him even in the top ten picks.
