Damn, I forgot about benconstine. What ever happened to that crazy son of a gun? Is he still alive?
Yes, and he still posts somewhat infrequently, though he's so bland and forgettable it's easy to miss him.
As to the poll question, I think he'll be a moderate-ish Republican, so center-right.
But of course "moderate-ish" Republicans don't really exist, they're just people with some not entirely crazy positions on a few issues that people make a big fuss about and vote the Tea Party line on everything else. See Mark Kirk for example. If you ignore abortion he's about 95% the same as Michele Bachmann and Ted Cruz.
