Senator Rob Portman of Ohio Presidential Annoucment

Image Link

March 15th, 2015

Ohio State University

"Today I am proud to announce that after discussion with my wife and children I will run for president of the greatest nation in the world, the United States of America. For the last eight years, we have had a president who is inexperienced with both the economy and foreign policy, a president that is a party good-old-boy and today I say enough! We need an experienced conservative maverick in the white house. We need a president that puts real hard-working Americans before their party.

We need a president that is going to call it as he sees it, When I am president I will call it the opioid epidemic and I will call it radical Islamic terrorist. We need to fix real problems plaguing Americans today and stop the partisan turmoil.

I am ready to serve for the coal miners of West Virginia, the small business owner from New Hampshire, the soldier overseas, I am going to serve you. Let's put America back to work! "

Portman First Month Of Campaigning

Portman spent much of March finishing senate business but he started to visit New Hampshire, Iowa, and Nevada. He also met with some high profile endorsements to try a woo over their support.

I'd like to run as Bernie Sanders (as a democrat)

Welcome, this will be interesting since in early 2015 Sanders was barely known and it will be interesting if he can perform without running against Clinton (establishment)

45% chance for Bredesen Nomination
25% chance for Dayton Nomination
25% chance for Sanders Nomination

I think that Phil Bredesen can carry the south if he can attract enough conservatives and Attack Sanders enough. He may also be able to carry several other conservative states simply because he is a Conservative DEM.

Dayton and Sanders, However, will have a slugfest. They will both be seen as Progressives with Bernie only saying that he's a democratic Socialist. If Dayton can hit him enough times on that, he may be able to focus on Bredesen then. Sanders will just have to appeal to the masses and attempt to get the youth vote. All in all, unless one of the two becomes a strong number two, Bredesen could ride to the Nomination.


37% chance of Cruz Nomination
35% chance of Portman Nomination
20% chance of Paul Nomination

For the Republicans, it might be extremely tight, but Cruz may be able to take enough conservatives and Paul may be able to take enough Libertarians and youth to defeat Portman. Portman, at the same time, will have to attempt to attract all 3 groups and keep the establishment happy with him, which won't be an easy feat. All in all, Portman may be doomed to lose if he doesn't find a way to attract those 3 specific groups and shake off the establishment.



Cruz: 272/46.4%
Bredesen: 266/47.3%

And that's my election Prediction. Honestly, a lot can change from then to now, but at this point, it looks like it'll be Cruz v Bredesen.

Thoughts?

I think with the Sandoval endorsement Portman may be able to pick up Nevada but Cruz would beat Paul in Lousiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and West Virginia.

I see Hodges's winning SC if he stays in and Napiolanio or Sestak winning Nevada making it a much tighter race

Why is everyone attacking Patrick? He is at 7% and attack ads hurt the other candidate too sometimes

Politics is a dirty, dirty business. No matter how high or low you are in the Polls, if you have scandals and something to be discussed, then expect to be attacked on it. It'll also be possible that doing such a thing is a Kamikaze move, in which a candidate is going down but they take someone down with them. It can happen, though it's rare.

But why not when later near the caucus and primary so the attacks could be fatal to the campaign

RIP any chance of a Bredesen and other Democrat candidacy unless the Emails and Benghazi still happened.

I don't understand why you're letting early state endorsements begin this early.

An endorsement is an endorsement.

I only choose endorsements that endorsed this early in real life

Until Nikki Haley officially drops out and Hillary gives an announcement speech, I think Hillary shouldn't count. Other than that though, I'm fine with Hildog being in.
Agreed

NEW TERM UP. DEBATES TO BE POSTED TONIGHT OR TOMORROW MORNING AS WELL AS STATE POLLS.

Can I be Bobby Jindal instead of Rob Portman

Sorry, I can't just let any more people switch candidates this late. For the first term it was ok, but now its too much. Just be Portman, it's just a game anyway.

ok, that is actually better since without Portman there would be no moderate

At the post which I posted at the beginning of the second (the current) turn.

I meant GE National Polls Tongue

I think it is kinda early for GE polls since the field of candidates is so big, I was thinking he would start them in December when a clear front runner starts to emerge
