Absolutely not....but I also don't believe that any of the current "front-runners" on this list stand a chance is hell either. I honestly believe that Palin (not gonna happen) would probably make a better showing that any of the others here though (with the exception of maybe Christie...who will never get the GOP nomination).
    Rand Paul isn't a joke. He stands up for what is right, unlike many politicians.

    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.

    She helped Joe Miller boost in Senate primary polls from 3rd to 2nd place. Had she endorsed him sooner, he "might" have gotten the nomination or closer 2nd to Dan Sullivan.

    She helped Bill Walker get elected over Sean Parnell, who was leading again before she endorsed Walker.

    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.
    You got it all wrong. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz stand the best chance. America wants their politics, not Obama/Hillary failures. Those others who are mode moderate won't inspire the conservative base. There's no distinction n them and Hillary. Even Scott Walker was soft on NSA spying, and Ben Carson thinks there should be gun control in large cities, where they are needed the most.

    Ted Cruz and Rand Paul make the best distinctions between them and Hillary. And they can make the best presentation to the American people about why their politics are better.

    If you don't think Jeb shares similar policies as his dad and brother, then maybe you weren't paying attention.

    Reagan ran 3 times (technically 4) but won on his 3rd try - and re-election on 4th time running. 1st time he won the most votes in the nomination, more than 1968 Presidential Nominee & President-elect Richard Nixon, but not delegates. 1976 he almost beat incumbent President Gerald ford in GOP Nomination. After he lost the nomination at the convention, he gave such a great speech that the delegates had thought they should've voted for Reagan instead.

    Reagan was 69. And turned 70 a few weeks after being inaugurated to his first term in 1981.

    Of the 7 polls taken before Palin endorsed Walker, Walker was ahead in 5 of them. She didnt make much of a difference as the actual result was much closer than the pre endorsement polls showed. If anything were to correlate to her endorsement it would be an uptick for Parnell.

    Bobby Jindal would be a good President, but I don't know if he is able to maintain the commanding presence necessary to win a primary. Last election, however, the Democrats didn't even bother to run anyone against him.

    Scott Walker won three elections in four years in a purple state while taking on public sector unions. He's proven he can win in purple area's with conservative ideas, but without taking the kinds of ideological positions that make him unpalatable to the base (Jeb Bush, Chris Christie). He's the best bet, really.
    Haha! Good points to the first part. And while Scott Walker could be electable, he seems too mediocre on NSA spying. And he doesn't seem to have that type of commanding presence that many people who vote without knowing much about politics look for.

    Palin had approval ratings in the 80's percentage range while as Governor. Before the media tried to twist things about her. But a lot of the stuff she said that she was made fun of for, she was proven right about.
