    This is true and I'm not saying he won't change his mind. But, as of now, he does not have his hat in the ring. So it makes no sense to include him in polls.

    But he probably has a better chance than the rest.

    Also, please stop messing with my joke....

    PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME WHY I DIDN'T ADD SO & SO. I MEAN YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT, BUT I'M GONNA ANSWER NOW. THESE ARE MY PERSONAL GUESSES - NOT NECESSARILY ENDORSEMENTS - JUST WHO I'M GUESSING IS MOST LIKELY TO RUN, AND OF THE 10 BIGGEST NAMES AND MOST LIKELY TO BE THE TOP 10 CANDIDATES. I COULD BE RIGHT, I COULD BE WRONG. 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.

    Let's have fun with this discussion!
    I would never catch myself voting for any of the above. However, if I had to choose the least terrible candidate, I'd probably shoot for Rand Paul. He definitely has his problems but he generally seems to be a bit more reasonable on the issues important to me than the rest on that list. Looks like he's in favor of some sort of amnesty, he doesn't want to bomb countries left and right, he's *ok* on civil liberties (though he seems to be selling himself out on that as the election gets closer), he's against the war on drugs, etc.

    Ted Cruz is a total nutjob. Christie is an authoritarian idiot. Jeb Bush...we don't need another Bush in office. Bobby Jindal same as Cruz. Ben Carson has next to no experience and has made his political career thus far only on trashing Obama at some dinner and talking about how bad Obamacare is. Rick Santorum is an absolute theocrat. Rick Perry is a criminal. Scott Walker/John Bolton I don't know enough about them.

    What a sorry list. There isn't a name on that list that stands a realistic chance. Sarah Palin would beat all of them. The GOP's best shot is running Romney again.

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

    I'm not American and can't vote in America, but if things remain as they look now, the one candidate from any party will get my sympathy who has the harshest, iron-proof hardline course towards Russia, by default.

    If I were American, I'd probably prefer the Democrats, as IMO they have better domestic policy ideas. But since I'm not living in America, I focus on foreign policy. And I'll root for the one candidate who is determined breaking Russia's economic neck and seriously brings the goal of regime change there on the table -- while at the same time being determined to support America's NATO allies in Europe, to save our whiny, sorry asses once again. No matter if Dem or Rep.

    So I can't cast a vote in this poll until I know their stances on Russia better. This is not the time for the slightest bit of appeasement.

The rest of the candidates have precisely no chance in the primaries, with the bottom two being jokes for all practical purposes.
    That logic doesn't work in national elections. But to be fair I have seen it work on some state levels. 1976, 1996, 2008, 2012 all nominated GOP Moderates. 1980, 1984, 2000, 2004, nominated a conservative that people thought couldn't win a general election but they did.

    Jeb Bush & Chris Christie are bad for America. They support Common Core and won't inspire the conservative base of the GOP to get out and vote. Scott Walker is popular now but he is weak on NSA spying.

    Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are the 2 that can best inspire their bases, so I absolutely REFUSE to believe they can't win. America can't be so stupid and evil to want a bad politician like Hillary over good men like Cruz and/or Paul. Especially when we have so much time to stop that train from hitting us because we see it coming from miles away. Liberalism is bad for America. The media lies, because people cannot stand the evil woman Hillary. Cruz and Paul are doing everything in their power to save America.

    That person you just answered was just trolling. If you saw the original post you'd see I answered the questions of the stupid people before they could ask the stupid questions, so it makes them look all the more stupider for asking a question I already answered.

    Yes, often. But Mitt Romney isn't taking the steps necessary to build a campaign team like he had done before.

    Anyone GOP be electable in 2016.

    Did you not see the results of 2014? And Maryland! Who thought the Republican would win the Maryland Gubernatorial Election?! Even though the last poll had him ahead though.

    If you're in Germany then you of all people should know how bad the Democratic Party is on every single issue. Their policies have never been proven to work - and the only 2 recent examples I could think who had more success in their Presidencies were John Kennedy and Bill Clinton, but both were more centrist in their views. The conservative wing of the Republican Party has been right on every single issue for the most part.

    The Republicans are an anti-freedom party of big, excessive government and the Bush presidency was a failure of epic proportions on all levels. No other President was such a threat to basic civil and human rights as Bush, and thanks to him, the Middle East is a total mess now and we have to deal with ISIS. Cleaning up Bush's mess will take decades.

    The Democrats at least are spot on on many general ideas, although the execution is lacking and they got not much through due to extremist-uncompromising Republican obstruction. IMO.

    I agree with the Americans who say the Dems have moved from the left into the center (Obama is a center-right politician) and the Reps have moved into an insane asylum (thanks to Tea Party and so on).
