     I'm glad to see you taking this important step. As I said earlier, we need to promote unity within the Federalist Party. Getting people actively involved by doing things like running for office is key to promoting unity and strengthening the party.

Krol is no longer a member of the party.

I would love this, and I honestly think that he has a much better shot than people here give him credit for.  Most of the comments about the base of the GOP seem to more be describing Southern Republicans ... Utah Republicans are definitely socially conservative, but I don't see them as quite as nativist and uncompromising as evangelicals and Tea Partiers in the South.  They certainly wouldn't stop Huntsman at the door.

You're actually probably right here. Huntsman is universally loved in the state, so in this scenario against an unpopular Mike Lee, he probably wins.

But he's not going to run.

Huntsman is not loved. He merely relied on pleasing as many establishment types as possible in a state were voters have minimal expectations. Besides, having high approval ratings won't save you in the Utah GOP, as Mike Leavitt learned the hard way.

Mike Leavitt won re-election three times?

If he's only trailing by that now, than I'm pretty sure he'll win next year.

He was trailing Angle by 6 and came around to defeat her by about that margin.

It's dangerous to assume previous polling bias in future polling bias.

Excellent News! DHS is an unnecessary department whose necessary roles could be rolled into Defense.

Is everybody cool with him making 50 different republican primary threads in the 2016 board?
That's not him that's another one of those avatar-less people, Jeg er vilks.

Jeg Er Vilks IS Solarstorm2012.

What's your opinion of this poster?

I think he's a creep. HP. Anyone who's seen his obsessive Landrieu threads knows that. He'll probably end up like Rob DeNiro in King of Comedy.

That would be awesome if he were to fully embrace it. 

I would be more inclined to be supportive of him in a general election. It'd still be tough though.

You're a libertarian, right?  I don't understand why a libertarian would even consider voting for a Bush, no offense.

None taken. And obviously my opposition to him in a primary is strong. But if he backed gay marriage outright, I might be willing to take a "lesser of two evils" route, particularly in Oklahoma, because no Libertarian in a long time has ever made the ballot. Still, it's pretty unlikely, and I generally would, in a Bush v. Clinton scenario, spoil my ballot.

Mister Mets does bring up a good point though. Competitive primaries can be damaging-- just look at Romney '12. His opponents made personal attacks on him that reinforced Democratic narratives. People in his campaign made gaffes - such as his advisor's "etch a sketch" remark. His party's money and energy was wasted in intercene warfare. He lost his moderate image after pandering to tea parties. And his campaign lost months of organizing time for the GE-- while the Obama campaign started building up its infrastructure in key states in summer 2011, Romney couldn't focus on it until nearly a year later. As a result, his ground game suffered. The GOP has certainly concluded that having a nominee sooner rather than later would be a good thing.

What moderate image? He lost it during the 08 primaries.
