    I totally disagree. He came off as very fake during the debate. People don't like that.

    I predict Romney, unless Huckabee announces. Neither of them stand a chance in the general election though.

    I'm buying into the buzz around Herman Cain.

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    You guys do realize that the ONLY person who has polls showing they can beat Obama is Ron Paul, right??

    MINA Breaking News - CNN Poll: Ron Paul has best chance to beat Obama
    Poll Suggests Ron Paul Can Beat Obama in 2012 - Money, Finance, Economy... Channel • Money.VideoSift: Online Video *Quality Control

    So, if people just stopped with this ASSUMPTION that Paul "can't win" then not only CAN he win... but he WILL win. Of course the Ron Paul demonization campaign is going to come into full swing pretty soon.

    Guy wins all the polls, all the debates, has REAL demonstrable integrity (something which makes him unique in this day), but the media won't address where he's turning heads, but instead of saying he can't win, they just report on those times that he wins and mention all others running.

    It'd be like the media reporting on the super-bowl the day after without ever mentioning the winner.

    I say Mitt Romney. If that happens, there might be a 3rd party ticket for conservatives. Then Obama would surely remain in office.

    I think Romney is going to take it, but who knows, maybe a dark horse will emerge? It's sad to see so much "crazy" in the top list now.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    So basically, you don't want to see her on a ticket solely because of this board? Really?

    The more GOP that jump into this race the more diluted and confusing the issues become. In the end too many candidates will damage each other and when it comes down to the two left standing in the primary there will be nothing left but to abuse each other.
    The gop has so many hopefuls because they believe Obama has no chance of winning or there wouldnt be so many willing to waste political capitol on taking on a sitting president. The gop needs to be careful how much they attack each other

    You know, it'd be nice to assuage the last vestiges of my white liberal guilt, seeing as I didn't vote for the last black Presidential candidate.

    Besides, I think he's the real deal. I don't like the Fair Tax and he's more pro-life than I'd care for, but I believe he could lead Congress into fixing the budget and everything he's said about foreign policy strikes me as measured and pragmatic.

    Opposite problem. He's phenomenal. He's everything I think of when I say "Presidential material". I'd vote for him twice if I agreed with him on a single damned thing.

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann, Donald Trump, and Ron Paul will not win the GOP nomination. In fact, Palin and Bachmann aren't even formally running yet.

    Newt Gingrich won't pass the conservative test because of his divorces and is reviled by liberals for his witch-hunt against Clinton, which means him getting the nomination will mean an instant loss for the GOP.

    Donald Trump is a good businessman, so he would be good with regards to the economy, but he has absolutely no experience with governing, which is vastly different from directing a business. For example, a CEO doesn't have to deal with a legislature in order to enact policies. So he may actually try to extend executive authority. This is actually an issue that Florida governor Rick Scott is dealing with now.

    Ron Paul, while a favorite of the Tea Party crowd, won't win the GOP nomination either. While people distrust the government, they also distrust mega-corps too. The government serves as a check against big businesses. I think that while people favor certain planks of his platform, they are uncomfortable with his platform as a whole. Therefore, he won't get the nomination either.

    Mitt Romney would be able to attract moderate Republicans and moderate Independents and even conservatives Democrats. After all, he's a successful businessman and the economy is where President Obama is the weakest. He also has governor experience which makes him well suited to the Presidency. However, the fact that his Massachusetts health care plan was a model for the Democratic health care plan doesn't help him with the far-right, and neither does his changing attitudes concerning abortion. However, those stances are what makes him so favorable in the general election, but not the primary.

    To be honest, I don't know much about Tim Pawlenty, John Huntsman, or Mitch Daniels. What little I've read up on them to make this post, it seems to me that John Huntsman is too unknown and possibly too centrist to win the primary.

    Which means it'll likely come down between Tim Pawlenty and Mitch Daniels. Between those two, Mitch Daniels probably has the edge because of social issues. Daniels passed laws to make abortions more difficult to get and has reduced funding to Planned Parenthood. Tim Pawlenty, however, has focused more on economic issues.

    So among all those options, it might be Mitch Daniels who is the most likely to get the nomination.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
