    GO TED CRUZ GO!

    Remember, Republicans, Ted Cruz did a 21 hour (sort of) filibuster against Obamacare. Although technically not a filibuster, he stood on the Senate floor for 21 hours and spoke non stop and didn't even seem to get tired at all. He did that for our freedom. Despite annoying a lot of the Democrats and moderate Republicans in the Senate.

    We need someone willing to stand up for the people - not someone who is willing to cater and compromise on what is right. We need to really know where the President stands on the issues - and to know that they will protect and defend our freedom.

    Jon Huntsman is the most intellectual of the choices while Christie is the most electable. He's the one I would most like to have a coffee with.

    Most of the others may be "feel good" for true Conservatives but they will create a large push-back. By the time the election rolls around, I suspect people will be exhausted by Obama. But will they embrace a dyed-in-the-wool Conservative? Not a chance (opinion© not fact).

    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 Crz
    Rand Paul
    Mike Huckabee
    Marco uRubio
    Chris Christie
    Rick Santorum
    Rick Perry
    Jon Huntsman
    Paul Ryan
    Other (Please specify)
    Thinking it early for speculation, I voted other; but I will follow your poll for the humorous entertainment of observing those who will not or cannot vote in a GOP primary voice their opinions about which candidate will lose. No doubt that it will be opined that each and every candidate is the perfect loser.

    Good fortune to you

    And Boehner isn't normal. He always looks high or like he's crying about something. Bloodshot eyes and the George W. Bush crying face. I think the moderates are not normal. Don't let the media deceive you in to thinking that.

    Chris Christie isn't the most electable. Chris Christie is THE LEAST ELECTABLE. He is the WORST choice of ALL the Republicans. Unless if you count Peter King. He is even worse than Christie. And see that's the problem. You are letting emotion rule your vote. It isn't their likable personality that will help put this country on a better track. It's the candidate with the best ideas.

    When will Republicans learn, that nominating a moderate just because they're viewed as "more likely to win" - not only is wrong because it has to "settle" for "MUCH less than best" BUT ALSO, it didn't work in 2008 with McCain, and it didn't work in 2012 with Romney. It wouldn't work with Christie in 2016. Please don't make that mistake again.

    Both Paul but especially McConnell face huge dilemmas in KY where a state and federal exchange are working quite well due to KY's Dem. governor..
    Imagine what might be happening with ACA if the 25 GOP states weren't obstructing ?
