    And now its down to just 36% and she finished 6th in a GOP primary poll in Alaska. Cruz won, so clearly Alaska still loves their nutjobs just not Palin

    Not about excitement. It's about name recognition, and familiarity. Many GOP candidates in recent history with exception of George Bush, have ran before and lost before winning (Well, GW Bush lost race for Congress in 1978, if that counts). All the way back since 1968. Excluding 1976 since Ford was the incumbent at the time.

    The race hasn't openly started yet. Just fundraising and polling to explore running.

    and LOL that Jindal or Cruz are given any credibility by a party --- whose base--- fervently has spent 6 years shouting about NBC's and "HUSSSSEEEEINNN" and "secret muslims"

    He's pretty good on gun issues, very good on taxes and budget issues, is brighter than most of the other candidates (Dartmouth and U of Michigan Law school) and actually is not in politics to get rich (he was already wealthy before he gained office)

    far smarter than Hildabeast
    Fair analysis. I'll see what I can find about his views. But I do not wish to support a moderate. I'm more focused on social policy, and foreign relations. Less on the fiscal issues but they do matter too, just not something I'm as knowledgeable about compared to the aspects of politics I read about and am more interested about.

    Sarah Palin would win if she ran against Hillary Clinton.

    That is common sense and we know who would run a more interesting campaign. One woman was a popular state chief executive, Mayor, Chairwoman of Alaska Oil Commission, who is wildly popular and draws huge crowds, and now with more experience still riles up the crowds and proves the media are liars.

    Then you have a dull candidate who is known for being corrupt every time she is given power, people despised her as First Lady, she accomplished nothing as a Senator, no Chairing any Committees nor major legislative accomplishments, had a failed run as Secretary of State, letting 4 Americans die and saying "What difference does it make?" She lost an unloseable primary after she acted like she was "entitled" to it, and expects not a real challenge, not a debate, she just wants to be "GIVEN" the Presidency despite her failures and corruption.

    No. She won't just be "GIVEN" the Presidency. She's the most corrupted woman in America. People will see the truth just like they did in 2008.

    yes since open primaries started in 1972 all of the GOP nominees have been either incumbent presidents or runner ups in previous presidential primaries with the exception of 2000 where GWB was governor of the biggest red state and had presidential lineage. Only 4 fit that bill for 2016. McCain, Romney, Santorum and Jeb. If history follows suit I think it will be Jeb but I dont think history will follow suit this time.

    However, he did have same first and last name as his dad, and his father's 2nd middle name - who was previously President.

    What does Cruz have to do with Hillary? Cruz is easily the farthest right candidate and aside from Carson the least qualified, you would have to be crazy to have him as your best person the be president and even crazier to think he would have a shot to win the general election.
