I know it's a few months off and a lot can change, but I doubt there will be any new comers. To the liberals and foreign posters, please comment as well! Pretend that Obama WILL lose. Who would you want to lead the country (even if it hurts to say it?) But please note if you'd rather have Obama will as well, I'm just trying to see popularity even from the other side who want Obama to win. I'm sticking with Ron Paul even though he has a snowball's chance...

Here is a timeline of the candidates' popularity:

I'm not sure if the site is biased or not, but they take poll results from all over so it can't be too bad...

Seems like Romney has been consistently strong even if he wasn't always the most popular. Perry's moment seems to have come and went, but I don't think he's out just yet. Cain still currently leads, but it will be interesting to see how he fares against these sexual harassment allegations. Maybe it's Newt's turn to step up and take the polls. Poor Paul seems to be stuck with his loyal 7-10%. Bachmann, uh no comment   Santorum and Huntsman... maybe you two should start working on 2016 or 2020!

Right now, I would favor Perry   Seriously, I have no idea. I think they are all beatable though. Perry has regional problems, attention problems. Cain, Gingrich, women. Gingrich, past. Paul, too far out. Santorum, wacky. Bachman, tongue. Romney, trying too hard, anti union.

I think it will be Romney - he seems to have held his poll numbers pretty steadily as all the flavors of the month have come and gone. I also think he has the best shot at beating Obama as he doesn't appeal to the far right contingent and will pull in more votes from independents and dis-satisfied Democrats (and there are a lot of them these days). He isn't the greatest candidate ever to come down the pike but I think he has the broadest appeal of the current group. He so far doesn't seem to have any skeletons in his closet like Newt or Cain. While those may not matter to a lot of voters, they do matter to enough of them to possibly make the difference in a close election which I expect 2012 to be. I also think he will be able to hold his own on debates with Obama who, like him or not, is a pretty darned good orator.

Huntsman would be my choice out of the group on stage last night. I have to admit that Willard Romney is probably going to be the nominee when all the drift wood washes away. Both represent the best chances the GOP has for beating Obama.

The concern I have is that the Tea Party will use a lot of leverage (and money) to at least get the GOP slot. That is where the leading flakes will be targeting as soon as they understand they will not be President. The GOP should have learned in 2008 that you do not put some OTL "person" on the ticket.

The one thing I would bring up, however, is that the current list might not include the politician who eventually wins the nomination.

Gingrich is by far the sharpest pencil in this particular drawer, and would be Obama's worst nightmare in the debates. The big questions are 1) how well can he motivate the voters, and 2) can he convince some of the more socially conservative base to overlook his past personal indiscretions - an issue which I feel holds too much weight for them.

I like Cain, but the Media is going to milk these allegations like crazy, and I don't know how well he's going to be able to get that behind him. For Bill Clinton the reaction was “Can’t prove it, therefore she is lying….MOVE ON!”. For Cain the reaction is, “He can’t prove she is lying therefore….HE’S A PERV!”

What may be the worst for Republicans is this scenario: the right sees past the allegations/doesn't care and he wins the primary, but when it's Cain vs Obama, the left/middle do care and Obama is able to win. Something the GOP and Cain should be aware of

Oh, we've known about the double standard for years. Compare and contrast these two statements from NOW:

http://www.now.org/press/04-98/04-02-98.html

Quote:
April 2, 1998

Jones alleges that Clinton ran his hand up her thigh, exposed himself to her, asked for oral sex and pointedly reminded her of his friendship with her immediate boss. No woman should have to put up with such behavior at work. But according to the judge, even if then-Governor Bill Clinton propositioned and pawed then-state employee Paula Jones -- certainly misconduct for any employer or supervisor, Jones does not have a valid harassment claim because she could not prove that the overall result was a hostile work environment.

This ruling does not mean it's open season on women in the workforce.

Women who face unwelcome sexual behavior at work can still win in court if the harassment is so pervasive or so severe that it interferes with their jobs. When it does, lewd bosses and crude co-workers can and will be held accountable.

Compare that to this week:

http://www.now.org/news/blogs/index....ssment-allegations-and-herman-cain

Quote:
Revelations that presidential candidate Herman Cain was accused of sexual harassment while heading the National Restaurant Association, as well as suggestions that financial settlements bought silence, are deeply troubling.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace. Unfortunately that has not stopped the widespread practice of unwelcome sexual advances, innuendos and jokes in the workplace being leveraged by men against women.

Last night, Mr. Cain's campaign responded to news reports of the allegations with a statement that the press were "Spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts." And yet this morning, Mr. Cain acknowledged that he was accused of sexual harassment while he was at the National Restaurant Association.

Setting the Cain campaign's utter disregard for the facts aside, it's outrageous for anyone to suggest that sexual harassment allegations represent political smears to be dismissed rather than the bravery and dignity of women simply trying to go to work.

From Wikipedia: “On November 13, 1998, Clinton settled with Jones for $850,000, the entire amount of her claim, but without an apology, in exchange for her agreement to drop the appeal.”

This case that NOW kissed off as dismissed was settled for every dime she demanded 6 months later.

According to press accounts, Herman Cain’s accuser received $35,000 – 4 cents for every $1 Miss Jones received.

So basically, successfully coercing a woman to "free Willy" is OK because it does not particularly make the workplace a hostile environment (sub-text - if you are a liberal).

The accusations against Cain include a comment that might be considered a little wierd "You're as short as my wife" or something like that, or at the very worst sound like your basic come-on. But that deserves words like "Utter disrespect".

I love the sentence, "it's outrageous for anyone to suggest that sexual harassment allegations represent political smears to be dismissed rather than the bravery and dignity of women simply trying to go to work." So basically, Cain is not even allowed to defend himself - presumably because he is a conservative.

Or maybe liberal / conservative has nothing to do with it, and NOW is simply racist...

Anyway, this is nothing new.

you are comparing a document discussing the results of the lawsuit against Cinton with a document about the sexual harrasment charges. Two different things, and they don't equate NOW's stance on it.

Neat site. what it shows to me is there is a TRUE Split in the GOP. Cain Bachman and Perry's trajectories all seem to affect each other. Romney has held steady with Newt starting to creep up a bit. I really think that regardless of who wins the GOP nomination, there will be a 3rd Candidate this year from the loosing faction.


I would prefer to see Romney or Huntsman of this group. Truthfully I wish Christie had run.

Out of the Republican candidates I like Gary Johnson best. I disagree with some of his policies of course, but I think he is the most trustworthy and the least corruptible. But, so far, I prefer Obama over any of the serious Republican candidates.

If I am a Republican whose main goal is to get Obama out of office, I'm supporting Romney. At this point, though, I'd be surprised if Obama loses next year. The best thing Obama has going for him is the Republican candidates.

You need to change "she" to "THEY".  

And we need to see how many more decide to come out.

Cain's attorney has already talked about suing ago other woman who comes out, which might make fro a very powerful Discovery by the Defendants during an election campaign. And holding onto Cain's potential difficult Deposition under oath. That Deposition would be made public (as would all others) as soon as they were typed up.

Blunt reality is that Cain cannot win now. He's gone and that's good for America.

I want a good, competitive campaign, not a bunch of wingnuts. I also suspect that he would be far more reasoned as to who he would choose as VP, and is someone most could 'live' with if he were to win. The rest of the 'Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs' running are each so disturbing, they would come off like Sara Palin. You need the middle-class, taxpaying, independent - centrists to win and especially if the economy and jobs number don't improve significantly by next November, then Obama will be the scapegoat and lose.

I'm not a Republican but, it Louisianna Governor Bobby Gindal (not sure of SP) runs he could make a go of it. I never cared for Newt but, I read a forward he wrote in a novel about an EMP killing the power grid and all computer things and believe it or not, Newt made sense saying we need to prepare and be proactive. This Democrat still likes the Pres but, I'm miffed about his wanting to throw Israel under the bus.; proclaiming Israel to revert to pre 1967 boarders. This would be chop suicide for the US's only stable alliy in the Mid East. I hope I don't get flamed for my views but it seems if you are perceived as anti PLO and anti UN its flame out time.   

Back to the candidates, Sarah Palin no thanks she may be a hottie but she'd be a nottie in the arena of Presidential politics and responsability.

Mitt Romney: From Mass and a flip flopper and respects soverignity as much as the Kardashions respect marriage, a cluster you know what in the making.

Bachman is a looker but a cookoo bird and extremist. (I don't want Big Brother/Sister in my home) with Bachman it would be possible rebirth of the puritanical age of intolerance.

Rick Perry has about as much brains and common sense as my Short Bus kitties even blowing the teleprompter.

Ron Paul seems to say the right things for my Libertarian side but has spoken out against Israel

Herman Cain's credibility is less than steller but at least he is ballsy enough to spin things. He might just be able to stand up to the globalists and unstable Middle East faschist countries. The jury is out on that one.

The President, and many other candidates both D and R want to play roughshod with our soverignity and individuality.
Basically as I've said before both parties pander to their extreme bases. Most of us in the USA are in the center and vacillate to the right or left depending on the issue at hand. We the people seem to be in last place and 2nd. class citizens to the Elites who think they can peddle the Kardashions, and other reality TV and get away with pulling the rug from under this great nation.

From a European point of view - could we have a new deck of cards please?

Honestly, looking at this panopticum, I'd rather have Jay Leno in office

I looked at the website of Ron Paul, was interested in what his views on foreign policy are after I learned that Herman Cain (who I would have preferred at first) does not care who the President of takitakitakistan is. Sorry mate, disqualified.

Now, from Ron Paul I learn that for him, foreign policy is brining the GIs back home. That is rather domestic politics, Ron's got that mixed up. No federal income taxes, nice for US taxpayers, but the expenses are still there. Raising the money by excise taxes and duties, someone should tell Mr Paul about GATT treatis which the US have signed as well, One could also call it protectionism. But what hit the bottom out of the bucket was his opinion that taxation was inventd by Marx and Engels. Holy mackarel.

May be I am too old and old fashioned that I still expect a serious political agenda from a candidate. May be it is so that most American voters would not know what that is, so that would be - sorry folks - a waste of efforts. But as an American voter I would expect more from a candidate than this .

After Sarah Palin has dropped out which is good, as she never has finished anything except her children, how did someone like Michelle Bachman make it in that group. She's as thick as a brick, she doesn't have the brains for the job, same as Perry.

None of them would make it in any European country, not even in Italy, why can 't the country come up with an intellectual anymore? Oh, wait, you got one, he's in office.

So for this European, interested in US politics since decades and always pro Republican, is in favor of a Democrat for the second time. For Obama it will be piece of cake to defeat any of them.

I note that you have ignored Gingrich. If you want intellectual, he's the guy.

But then you think that Obama is an intellectual, so I question your definition. Sure, he taught school for a little while. But that doesn't make you an intellectual. He's never shown any trace of actually thinking of something original - all his ideas and programs are rehashes of stuff that came decades before (including some from rather dubious origins).

What is the definition of intellectual, anyway? From Wiki:

"Intellectual" can denote four types of persons:

1 A person involved in, and with, abstract, erudite ideas and theories.
2 A person whose profession (e.g. philosophy, literary criticism, sociology, law, political analysis, theoretical science, etc.) solely involves the production and dissemination of ideas.[1]
3 A person of notable cultural and artistic expertise whose knowledge grants him or her intellectual authority in public discourse.
4 A person of high mental calibre and applied mental agility that can inductively or deductively reason from evidence and patterns, with the creativity to "think outside the box".

I think 1 and 2 are too broad. I know a hell of a lot of people with sociology, law and politi-sci degrees that couldn't get an original thought in their head with a crowbar, and I would hardly call intellectual.

3 is good, though subjective. As is 4. I'd say Gingrich meets those criteria. Obama does not.
