    Ted Cruz
    Rand Paul
    Scott Walker
    Jeb Bush
    Chris Christie
    Bobby Jindal
    Rick Perry
    Rick Santorum
    John Bolton
    Ben Carson

    based on my independant opinion of what "america" will I only see one guy on that list that has an actual shot of being president and thats christie but the reps probably wont support him as thier candidate.

    Ben carson shouldnt be on any seriously list, he is on a list of never going to be president along Palin, Bachmann and Cain.

    As for the rest they have some things i like and dont like but again based on the american public i dont see any of them being president.

    Why do people keep asking me questions that I already answered in the main post? I even answered because I know there would be people who would ask me even though I already answered it. Seriously dude.

    People - please read my main post before you ask me questions that make you look like you're not paying attention to details. It makes you look bad.
    Cool story, but you also need to read your "main post":

    SO WHILE YOU CAN REPLY WITH WHAT YOU WANT, I DO WANT TO MAKE THIS POLL LESS ABOUT WHO YOU THINK WILL RUN OR NOT RUN, AND MORE ABOUT WHICH CANDIDATES YOU LIKE OR DON'T LIKE, AND WHY.


    You asked which candidate I like or don't like and not about who I think will run or not run. I answered the question. Then you pouted about it.

    Pay attention to your own details.

    Not agreeing nor disagreeing, but why do you say that?

    Chris Christie, John Bolton, Rick Santorum, and ESPECIALLY Ben Carson - are the ones with no chance in 2016. Christie won't inspire the conservative base (like 2008, 2012, 1996, 1992 [Reagan's coattails in 1988], 1976).

    Palin could win a general election but her chances would be better if she ran for Senate again first, and maybe if she finished her term. Bachmann I like and her chances might not be as good at first, I think she could overcome it. Herman Cain is the 2012 version of Ben Carson. Moderates painted as Tea Party (I.E. Cain's 9-9-9 flat tax, or Carson's wanting gun control in big cities) with no political experience taken seriously.

    The list I made has nothing to do with my personal thoughts about the candidates, it has to do with who I think will run (Only 10 can fit in a list, and didn't want to add a write-in option this time like I did in my first poll, wanted to try something difference and still add 10 options) and also who I think might be the top 10.

    And someone like Ben Carson, who I cannot picture winning the nomination nor general election, could be 10th place for all I know. So I added him.

    If these polls had unlimited options, I probably would add every single likely and possible candidate mentioned on the Wikipedia page for the 2016 election.

    You asked which candidate I like or don't like and not about who I think will run or not run. I answered the question. Then you pouted about it.

    You asked me why I didn't add Jon Hunstman, so I referred to my main post when I already answered your question, but because you didn't read my main post and asked me anyway, thus wasting both mine and your time debating this rather than discussing the candidates, I referred you to that main post and then you tried to use that against me to justify not reading it in the first place.

    If you like Jon Hunstman, Jr. as a candidate, alright. If you said you liked him as a candidate and wished he was running, I could've understood that. But you asked me why I didn't add him to this poll. Even though I answered you before you asked me, I still took the time to reply to you anyway about how Jon Hunstman said he won't under any circumstances run, and has largely avoided the political scene since making that statement, unlike someone like Mitt Romney who has maintained a presence, despite his saying he won't run.

    I give you credit for being a Democrat that isn't supporting Hillary first and would support other Democrats over her, but, I cannot comprehend why anyone in their right mind would actually support her. I cannot accept that people hate America that much.

    Hillary is known for corruption any time she is given power. There is no good reason to vote for her. At all. She should be the last person on earth to be considered.

    And no, Christie is probably the one person on this list, along with Lindsey Graham, who would do the worst in a general election. They wouldn't be able to get the conservative vote.
    The more conservative the Republican candidate, the more likely they are to lose the general. The Dems start with between 242 and 260 solid electoral votes. The Reps have the run the table on the rest to win. You are not likely to win a purple state with a candidate on the extreme of the political spectrum. Run a real conservative and enjoy eight years of Hilary.

    PS- its pretty unlikely the Republicans will see the White House, except as a tourist or guest for a decade. This is why they are working so hard to reverse Imperial Presidency, which they had a strong hand in crafting.

    I think Jeb Bush who was a popular governor of Florida would win that state if he ran. Florida and its 29 electoral votes are a must if the Republicans are going to come close to winning in 2016. I wouldn't sell him short. Christie, as it looks at least to me at this point in time, bridgegate has soiled him too much.

    But if I were a Republican I would be looking toward John Kasich and trying to convince him to run. Ohio and its 18 electoral votes are another must win state for the Republicans. Put together a Kasich/Rubio ticket, you would have the two must win states covered. Jeb Bush wouldn't accept being number two, at least I don't think so.

    On the other side assuming Hillary is the nominee, Jim Webb announced an exploratory committee for a possible run at the White House. A Hillary/Webb ticket would be very hard to beat, mainly because Webb could deliver the swing state of Virginia and its 13 electoral votes.

    All the above is pure speculation.
    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.

    1.) i agree that reps might not support him like they should but this is about america overall and i think enough reps, independents and some dems voting for a rep could happen more for him than anybody
    2.) palin has ZERO chance to be president or the nominee
    3.) see #2 same
    4.) see #2 same

    id bet anythign and take any bet given to me that those 4 people are complete jokes on a "national stage" never become president or get the nod for nominee. America would NEVER make them POTUS.
