    Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    Who do you think will win the Republican nomination in 2012? (Not who you WANT to win.)

    I think it's going to be Pawlenty. Judging by his performance at the debate, he's going to say all of the right things to all of the right people. It's a shame that none of the things he's saying are even remotely useful.

    I guess I would question who Pawlenty actually appeals to. By trying to be the cookie-cutter conservative candidate, I think he ends up being acceptable to most Republicans but the first choice of no one. And since primary voters are voting for the candidate that they think will be the best, that's not a winning strategy IMO.

    As I see it, Pawlenty's problem is that he's just not that exciting. Every section of the Republican base has someone who they like better. The religious crowd will gravitate toward Rick Santorum, the fiscal conservatives will favor Mitch Daniels, the moderates will support Mitt Romney, and the neoconservatives (or what is left of them) will lean toward Newt Gingrich. So I'm not really sure where Pawlenty could fit into that landscape.

    You missing the priest.. he will win if he runs. And the GOP will loose atm with pretty much anyone on the list. Personaly I am torn, since I want to see Palin for entertainment purposes, Romney to see if he can flip flop some more and Ron Paul for getting less votes than a 3rd party candidate.. but dunno... dunno!

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

    Hermain Cain is the dark horse of the race I think, at first I was impressed, but he seems to just repeat a lot of Right wing rhetoric so he could get the nomination just based on that.

    as for other contendors I really just can't say, Sarah and Trump probably won't run and Bachmann will be on the Yeah ****ing right she'll be elected ticket.

    Gingrich too much baggage, Paul doesnt fire up the base, Romneys Health Care debacle destroys him... and the rest are just hopeless.

    The GOP is gonna have a tough time this round, but you never know what could happen.

    When it comes down to it, I think Romney has the best chance, but right now it is really hard to pick some one. They all have really strong negatives, either on positions they have taken, experience, don't generate excitement, whatever. I do think most of those on your list have a fair chance at getting the nomination.

    I like Romney, but I don't like his chances in the primary. If he took it, I would vote for him in a heartbeat.

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

    there are a couple who could win the nomination AND the election. Newt, is not one of them, he could win the nomination but has no chance of beating Obama because the blacks, the unions the teat suckers will all support Obama as will lots of upper middle class independents who are turned off by his hypocrisy and his arrogance

    Romney, Pawlenty and Daniels are the three who could do both

    Bachman, Paul etc are cult candidates who don't appeal to enough of the middle

    I agree with this, but I think he'll still get waxed in the general election. McCain was the uber moderate, and he was doing much worse before he picked Palin for the VP slot. The smart money is on Obama to retain his presidency. I don't think they should waste a good candidate this election cycle and should instead remain fixed on turning around Congress. I just don't want Palin on a ticket anywhere. This board would be insufferable.
