    Because there's only room for 10 choices (or 9 candidates + 1 "other") and I can't include them all? And because Cain was not one of the 9 most likely nominees on InTrade's list at the time I made the poll?

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

    Mitt Romney can't win for a number of reasons. Among them are RomneyCare(his death blow), a flip-flopping past, and being a Mormon.

    Once Huntsman jumps in he and Romney will be associated with each forever and it will prevent either from winning. The comparisons are so easy to make; both are millionaires, both are Mormons, both are moderate Republicans, and both have the classic politican look.



    Tim Pawlenty is a good guy but he seems a bit boring. He looks just like Chris Collinsworth of Sunday Night Football. He would be an okay choice but not my first.




    See the similarities?

    Romney, their current best candidate, has had terrible luck lately with his comments about how America is not at war or his massive flip-flop on healthcare.

    He is talking about David Duke, who actually is ineligible to become President

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

    I think Mitch Daniels has the best chance to win and I will support him. Nobody in the current field can rival his fiscal record. I believe his "truce" comment was taken out of context, and he won back a lot of the social conservatives by instituting a private school voucher system in Indiana and cutting off state funding for planned parenthood.

    those are precisely my beliefs as well.
