    The only contest Palin would win is a beauty contest and possibly a drinking one. She doesnt even have a positive favorable rating in Alaska

    Gotta agree Bolton seems like it came from left field. Portman was heavily mentioned for VP in 2012 and hes a moderate from a swing state a very attractive candidate although I wouldnt vote for him

    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).
    Nice to see that the outside view of American politics is just as ignorant as America's view of the rest of the world

    The only ones on that list that would have even a chance of winning the general election would be Jeb Bush and Scott Walker. I don't think Rand Paul could win the general, and the rest would do good to pick up 10 states.

    Of the possible GOP candidates, these are the ones I think stand the best chance of actually winning in 2016 should they run:

    John Kasich
    Jeb Bush
    Mike Pence
    Rob Portman
    Scott Walker
    Mitt Romney
    and possibly should he actually decide to run, Jeff Flake.

    I don't get the Republican primary voter mindset that makes them think some total nutjob like Ben Carson would stand even the most remote chance of ever winning a general election in today's America.

    Those steps don't even usually start until about december and they arent known to the general public until months later

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.
    you wouldn't vote for someone because you dont like their last name? Ladies and gentlemen your average presidential voter, hard to say Gruber's opinion about the general public was wrong

    Ben Carson makes Rick Santorum look like Richard Dawkins.

    If you read carefully, I never said Palin would win anything...but neither will any of the others in the current list of GOP "front runners". I stand by my comment that Palin (while she would never win) would probably put up a better showing than pretty much any of these others.

    (You KNOW its bad when Romney is currently running 15-20 points higher than anyone else...and he has said he won't run. Clearly, the voters do not like ANY of those mentioned as possible contenders for the 2016 GOP nod).

    How exactly would Palin do better than any of the other candidates in the general election if she couldnt win the GOP primary? Shes not exactly a moderate
