    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.

    That is a LIE! You are wrong!

    The only time a conservative GOP lost in recent history was 1964. They won in 1980, 1984, and the coattails helped in 1988 but not in 1992 when Bush Sr. ran for re-election. 2000, 2004 - the conservatives won. But 1976, 1992, 1996, 2008, 2012 - the MODERATES LOST.

    I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE ARE JUST GONNA "GIVE" THE PRESIDENCY TO THE MOST EVIL AND CORRUPTED WOMAN IN AMERICA - HILLARY! Do you NOT know of how horrible she has been EVERY SINGLE TIME she was given power??????? Or do you not care?

    Conservative policies always help - Liberal policies always fail - that's a proven fact.

    Ted Cruz can beat Hillary Clinton in a general election because he's a smarter, more experienced man (don't argue that with me, just read his resume), a man of principle and integrity, while she is a woman of pride and corruption. Don't be stupid, America. I would hope you learned your lesson from having the worst Presidency in U.S. History - under Barry Soetoro, AKA Barack Hussein Obama II.

    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.
    i cant see JEB winning america based on last name alone lol

    and again this is about the current state of america, with his stances on abortion, civil rights and grey stance on equal rights I dont see it.

    now of course like you its pure speculation but in 2016 i think it will be impossible for any candidate to win if they make pro-life/anti-choice and or anti-equal rights for gays in thier "running platform"
    they cant run on those issues because it will add up to a lose. But they could do enough dancing and not run on those issues and fair much better

    I think you have some anger issues. When people disagree with your worldview, they are not "lies", they are differences of opinion. But, in this case, I brought some support to my opinion. Did you read the articles? Why don't you do so and write each of the authors (two of which are conservative) to tell them they are wrong. Past performance is not indicative of future results. There a major differences in the electoral landscape over the past four cycles. States do not swing as freely between candidates as they did 40 years ago. Feel free to lay out a compelling argument for a Republican win in 2016 and show us what states that candidate will carry.

    The most "evil and corrupted"..... going through life embracing superlatives will not help the blood pressure.

    The notion that "...conservative policies always help and liberal policies always fail..." is an opinion. You are entitled to such an opinion, but believing one side is always right and the other is always wrong is not a particularly intelligent world view. I think you need to better understand the difference between "lies" and "things that are not true" and the difference between "fact" and "opinion"...

    Jon Huntsman ain't my cup of tea but he's markedly better than the others. He and Rand Paul would both probably make fairly decent nominees, though admittedly I would not vote for either in the general.

    Nah. Clinton is a terrible candidate. I will probably vote for Gary Johnson again because neither party lineup is all that appealing to me.

    Re: 2016 Republican Presidential Primary (2nd Poll, this time multiple choice)

    Wow, it's a common rule on the internet that the Pauls always win polls. From the largest media sites to the smallest corners of the web, the trolls always find a way to drive traffic to these stupid polls. Then, during the midst of the election, they get soooo brainwashed by the Paul family "values" that they actually believe that they can win a general election, and... when they don't. They end up pouting and shouting at the top of their lungs that it's a huge conspiracy against them! When in reality, it was them who hacked the polls in the first place!

    Now, I'm not saying that these polls are internally hacked. I know the site wouldn't allow that to happen, but hacking here can mean many things. Paul fanboys driving their "friends" to vote in this poll so that Paul can win. I'm not sure what they get out of it, but I've seen it happen, in real time, on too many sites for me to sit around and not speak up about what I have seen on other sites. That this is exactly the same scenario. Let me reiterate, that this is not an assumption I am making here!

    Ted Cruz only has 5 which is quite normal but I'm surprised he doesn't have more. My guess is that he is the reluctant second choice for paulbots. Even though, he is a better candidate for their stated belief system. If only a Paul wasn't running... Paul, the hypocrite turned tea party crazy, has 11 and is sadly winning. I think this proves the short attention span of the American internet people, and its devotion to Hand-me-down political brands

    The two strongest choices in reality (Not the alternative universe where paulbots live) Walker and Bush are relatively similar in the rankings here. Walker surprisingly is winning with 10. Bush has 7.

    I would have thought something like this couldn't happen on DP. Paul winning polls. Whenever a Paul name is winning in a poll I just automatically throw those votes out. He has no chance guys. Just like his father!

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Actually I would have thought Ted Cruz, because despite his exaggerations he is articulate and stays within their belief system. Rand Paul is just a phony hypocrite. While I may not like Cruz for many many reasons. I don't have anything against the guy, yet. Many of them hope/wish for a Paul/Cruz Ticket. Not going to happen with the recent GOP rebranding.
