1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: GOP Primary Atlas Poll, May 2015 (GOP Primary voters only) on: May 15, 2015, 02:20:19 pm
Marco Rubio or Mike Huckabee
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rank who you would like to be president on: May 07, 2015, 02:27:31 am
Really tough to say.

1. Marco Rubio
2. Chris Christie
3. Mike Huckabee
4. Jeb Bush
5. Scott Walker
6. Rick Santorum

To be honest, if I had to vote today, I would be genuinely undecided. I like all six of those guys, and I think Rubio, Christie, Bush and Huckabee are especially electable. I worry about the electability of Scott Walker the most. Huckabee was my #2 choice in 2008 and would have been my #1 in 2012 had he ran. I voted for Santorum in the 2012 primary.

Something tells me we should nominate Marco Rubio. He really is a dynamic candidate and the GOP never goes for dynamic. Perhaps we should try. If we do and we still lose, well the 2018 elections will make Hillary and her administration the only Democrats left in America Tongue

I don't care if they're individually fairly boring, sober people.  They have to govern as if they're a more right-wing version of George W. Bush.  George W. Bush was already very right-wing and governed that way, despite how people said he was "moderate" and a "compassionate conservative."  We've heard this song and dance before. 

Is there any Republican that believes that the environment matters at all?  Wouldn't every potential candidate try to rewrite our environmental laws to allow for more pollution and no action on climate change? 

Is there any Republican who would appoint moderate Supreme Court justices?

Is there any Republican who's economic agenda doesn't include, lowering taxes on the rich, increasing military spending, raising taxes on the poor?

Doesn't every Republican want to make education and healthcare unaffordable for middle class people?

The moderate Republicans will basically run on the right-wing Romney 2012 platform.  Write it down.  None of them are moderates.  And, like Romney, they want to run America like a LBO target, cut the labor costs (squeeze the middle class), reward the top executives (reward the rich), load it up with debt (lower taxes on the rich and increase military spending) and run it into the ground (do what Bush did 2001-2009). 

The same is the reason why I refuse to ever vote Democrat. If anything, it's the Democratic Party that has lurched leftward even more than Republicans have moved right.

Look how they got rid of Lieberman in 2006. But that was okay? But if a Republican gets primaried, it's because of the "crazies".

You're a bunch of hypocrites.

Seems like alot of the positivity from Hillary certainly comes from the Democrats. Gotta give them credit at how they coalesce around candidates fast. IE Obama summer 2008, Kerry spring 2004.

Imagine the reactions of the red avatars on this forum if this poll was of Walker or Christie or Jeb.

"It's over" "Their campaign is done" ect ect

But with their candidates, they turn a blind eye.

I can tell you first hand, the people my age at work know about Hillary, Rand and to some extent Jeb.

They have no clue about Walker or Rubio. It gives them a chance to rise.

Jeez I didn't realize how young these cops are! Two of them are younger than me, two of them are black and one is a woman. I keep imagining (thanks to the media) that they're all angry old white-haired men.

This kind of vicious lawlessness is why many people feel uncomfortable in urban areas

Keep pretending you're not talking about race.

It's a real thing. It's called white flight.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_flight

Then what happens are the cities begin closing businesses because people come less and less. Then the city loses money and revenue and can't afford city workers and cops, ect. It's quite sad.

"Flocking back to the GOP in droves?" We haven't even had a national elections since the police issue has been at the forefront of public discourse. And even in 2014, no single millennial actually cast a ballot.

I'm a single millennial and I cast a ballot. Didn't do much good, but I diiiid!

I voted last year. Every candidate I voted for from John Kasich to local judges won. Every one of them were Republicans and I am a Millennial born in 1988.

Curious as to current support. Only chose those likely to run or running now, omitting Warren, Biden, and a few possible dark horses.

I never said it wasn't. Just posting a Rasmussen poll.
