    Hmm, I wonder if these two are any more crazy or if independents consider them as crazy as Hillary Clinton. I have seen nothing on this, but I do have the latest PPP polling results which list independents favorable/unfavorable ratings. Now these are independents and independents only which is important as independents tend to decide national elections.

    Hillary Clinton among independents 34% favorable 55% unfavorable 10% not sure
    Todd Cruz 29% favorable 38% unfavorable 33% not sure
    Rand Paul 40% favorable 33% unfavorable 27% not sure
    Christie 46% favorable 28% unfavorable 25% not sure

    It seems most independents have made up their mind about how they feel about Clinton, only 10% not sure/undecided. But with the rest there is lots of room to change their ratings one way or the other.

    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 don't buy that they do, to be honest. Independents have supported Ron Paul for a long, long time and he's never even gotten close to winning an election.

    No, not really. Very few independents supported Ron Paul. Back in 2012, Ron Paul supporters were most young college kids or older Libertarians. Paul's support if you go back to all the polls taken between Dec of 2011 to April of 2012 he ranged between 9-15%. Now none of these polls show what independents thought of him since there are so many closed primaries and what independents think during primaries mean little to nothing.

    young people support shows up in his favorable ratings. Ron Paul's favorable rating among the young was 46%, 40 to 65 his favorable rating dropped to 34% and over 65 his favorable rating was at 32%. By contrast Romney's was at 52%, 67% and 75% in the 65 and older group.

    There is nothing I can find that give me a break down on how independents viewed Ron Paul, but I do not think he had much support from independents. I think most independents really didn't give him much thought as he was perceived as a non-winner. But until I find a poll or something in writing, one can never be sure.

    Sorry, but Hillary Clinton is by far the most popular of these politicians and she has one huge ace up her sleeve to play (hubby Bill Clinton)
    Hillary Clinton is the worst thing that has ever happened to America. I feel like people are just not intelligent or that they really just hate America. She let 4 Americans die in Ben "What difference does it make?" Ghazi.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    I'm glad to see most primary voters in this poll have some common sense to vote for the only Senators standing up to the corrupt washington elite.

    95 voted.

    Rand Paul 30%
    Ted Cruz 29%
    Chris Christie 11%
    Jon Hunstman 10%
    Paul Ryan 2%
    Marco Rubio 1%
    Rick Perry 1%
    Mike Huckabee 1%
    Rick Santorum 1%
    Rob Portman 1%

    I think you are out of your mind and crazy if you don't support Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

    I wouldn't use the term "normal people" since to me, people who think of themselves as "normal people" are:

    -Boring
    -Unimaginative
    -Average intelligence
    -Close-minded
    -Don't accomplish much
    -Flock to the in-crowds
    -Judgmental to interesting people and labels them 'weird'

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Countering the continued noise over Clinton's FOUR dead, do you hear constant blather about Reagan's Beirut problem?
    No you don't.

    Or the over 4,400 problem from Cheney/Bush?
    Only when the Benghazi BS of the crook I$$A comes up.

    How about donating to the over 31,000 families of wounded warriors?

    Your concerns about those previous administrations are legit. I don't care about what party they were. If they are wrong, then they are wrong.

    However, none of them are considered top contenders for the 2016 nomination for President.

    American voters need to learn to vote smarter.

    We wouldn't be where we are now if O'Connor hadn't made the wrong decision, her words .
