    Re: Round 1. Ted "Tea Party Supported" Cruz vs. Hillary "has to run" Clinton

    Why don't the TP show some balls and start their own 3rd party with Cruz as their nom and leader? Cruz has no chance of winning the GOP nom. The establishment GOP politicians hate him.

    The GOP is going with Jeb in 2016, that's a given. So if Cruz and the TP are PO'ed about another establishment candidate running in 2016 then show some guts, break away. Instead of continuing to tear the GOP a apart take the Koch's money, and Cruz's and Palin's names and go. See how they can do away from the GOP.

    But the reality is the TP isn't going anywhere. Never will happen. They'll continue to try and takeover of the GOP platform and ideology and continue with the civil war within the GOP. They get more publicity that way. The problem for the GOP is the Dems are loving the GOP civil war too.

    Not American but purely taking these candidates into account, I would say the best option is Hillary Clinton. Or should I say the least worse LOL.

    I was just going to post something to that effect, as of now, the numbers for the candidates are as such (from an opinion poll from last week):

    Jeb Bush 16%
    Scott Walker 13%
    Rand Paul 12%
    Mike Huckabee 10%
    Ben Carson 9%
    Chris Christie 7%
    Marco Rubio 7%
    Ted Cruz 4%
    Rick Perry 4%

    Making him the 8th in line for the republican nomination. Now there are a few that will most likely not get the nomination. Ben Carson for example, Chris Christie for example and Mike Huckabee are not really likely presidential nominee candidates. The same goes for Cruz, Perry and Rubio.

    The way it looks now it is going to be a battle between Bush, Walker and Rand Paul.

    I voted for Gary Johnson in 2012 because I didn't trust one major political party's candidate and lost faith in the other major political party's candidate. I would probably vote for Johnson again in 2016 if my choice was between Cruz and Hillary.

    I do not trust either one of them. Although it probably wouldn't make much difference in the scope of things who wins. As long as the winner is from one of the major parties it will be business as usual.
    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.

    Here is the latest from RCP on the nominations, you can look at 5 different polls. RCP then averages all of them out for their final percentages.

    Republican

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - 2016 Republican Presidential Nomination

    Democrat

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - 2016 Democratic Presidential Nomination

    Head to head match ups

    Re: Round 1. Ted "Tea Party Supported" Cruz vs. Hillary "has to run" Clinton

    Last week CNN/ORC has a poll in which Hillary Clinton was put in head to heads with the biggest republican candidates:

    Hillary Clinton vs. Jeb Bush resulted in 55% Hillary and 40% Bush

    Hillary Clinton vs. Chris Christie resulted in 55% Hillary and 40% Christie

    Hillary Clinton vs. Marco Rubio resulted in 55% Hillary and 42% Rubio

    Hillary Clinton vs. Mike Huckabee resulted in 55% Hillary and 41% Huckabee

    Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul resulted in 54% Hillary and 43% Paul

    Hillary Clinton vs. Ben Carson resulted in 56% Hillary and 40% Carson

    Hillary Clinton vs. Scott Walker resulted in 55% Hillary and 40% Walker

    WH2016: General

    McClatchy-Marist did their own poll in which Hillary scored as following:

    Hillary Clinton vs. Marco Rubio resulted in 49% Hillary and 42% Rubio

    Hillary Clintion vs. Scott Walker resulted in 48% Hillary and 44% Walker

    Hillary Clinton vs. Rick Perry resulted in 51% Hillary and 42% Perry

    Hillary Clinton vs. Jeb Bush resulted in 49% Hillary and 42% Bush

    Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul resulted in 51% Hillary and 40% Paul


    And they also included Ted Cruz and there Hillary would get 53% and Ted Cruz would get 39%


    Most republican candidates so far fail to score big against Hillary but it is still early in the process.
