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.

    Ted Cruz does not have much to offer anybody not a far-right Tea Party nutter. Paul, while every bit as crazy economically, at least seems to be pretty decent on civil liberties, foreign policy, and immigration from what I've seen.

    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
    America can't be that evil that they will support the murdering of babies. Don't call it pro-choice since the baby doesn't have a choice.

    When I look at these things, it is more through numbers than ideology. Therefore I am a bad choice to predict who the nominees would be. But I can tell you who would have the best chance of winning. The Republicans start off with 191 electoral votes in their trustworthy states. States that will go Republican no matter who they run and have gone Republican since 2000 in all 4 presidential races. Jeb Bush would win these states, so would John Kasich or Howdy Doody unless they stepped into a huge pile of manure. You add Florida to that mix with Bush that is 220. More than McCain or Romney received, but a long way from 270. Hence a Kasich/Rubio ticket would in my opinion add Ohio to that total bring the GOP up to 238.

    The problem for the Republicans is the number of electoral votes in Democrat trustworthy states, 247. Just 23 shy of the 270 needed to win. This is where Jim Webb comes in with the state of Virginia, add its 13 EV and now the Democrats are at 260 needing just 10 more.

    Left are the swing states of New Hampshire 4, North Carolina 15, Iowa 6, Nevada 6, Colorado 9.

    The last 3 swing states are Florida 29, Ohio 18 and Virginia 13 which I mentioned above.
    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.

    Do you really think Jim Webb can have THAT much pull? I don't know much about the guy, but he seems to be a great contender to Hillary.

    In Virginia, yes. Virginia is turning blue. It is at least purple today and Warner won in a close race during a Republican wave. Webb represented Virginia in the Senate before so he won statewide there before. But I think he would be too conservative for the Democrats of today, even as a VP nominee.
