Come take the Poll...open to guests
Cruz. Darth Vader. Either one.
With a whoppin 26 votes so far Palin is now neck and neck with Rand Paul
Military coup and civil war. Then we’ll sort it out.
Cruz at 49%.
Take that, GOP!
The fact is the media will destroy any decent person who runs.
How to prognosticate the upcoming GOP primary -
There will be three conservative horses and a couple of conservative ponies.
There will be one RINO the media loves.
Conservative horses stomp the ponies alienating many of their supporters before viciously turning on one another before each bleeds to deaths from wounds sustained.
Meanwhile - RINO the wonderhorse will start winning as he/she stays above the barnyard fight of the others and halfway through the process RINO has the nomination all but sewn up and disgusted conservatives refuse to vote for RINO guaranteeing Haggary Clinton’s victory as the first woman President.
I’m serious. Hope I am wrong though.
Cruz WAY out in front with Palin a distant second. All others may as well not even be in the list. Methinks this poll has been seriously FREEPED!
Added my vote for Cruz.
Donald Trump is sitting at 0%. There is hope yet.
You put your finger on almost all candidates are mediocre.
Your scenario sounds very familiar.
I’m starting to agree with you. Voting and peaceful means according to the law don’t work anymore.
Why not someone like retired Marine General JAMES MATTIS?
I am dead serious about this fine man.
Talk about someone that would be in a position to let our Allies know that they can TRUST us once again. At the same time, our Enemies would become quickly reacquainted with a very healthy FEAR of us. Look at his background and you will see why I am very high in regard and respect for him.
Palin if she runs after that Cruz.
My 10 cents worth of a charade.
I voted for the best candidate- Jim DeMint...
No, he wasn’t on the list.
The media’s world has little to do with reality, or is it me?
Jeb Bush 2 (1.1%)
Chris Christie 2 (1.1%)
Ted Cruz 96 (51.3%)
Mike Huckabee 0 (0%)

Rand Paul 23 (12.3%)
Rick Perry 5 (2.7%)
Paul Ryan 2 (1.1%)
Rick Santorum 1 (0.5%)
Donald Trump 1 (0.5%)
Other 4 (2.1%)
Scott Walker 7 (3.7%)

Mitt Romney 0 (0%)
The problem that I have with such polls is the following. They arguably help to reinforce the widespread myth that the Oval Office is the most powerful office in the land. The reality is that if low-information voters were brought up to speed on the federal government's constitutionally limited powers then the following would hopefully happen. Citizens would probably lose interest in presidential campaigns and the electoral college would then be used to elect president as the Founding States had intended for it to work.
The bottom line is that patriots need to find a new national soap opera to replace "DC Follies."
If we do not destroy them first.
I doubt it will be Cruz (too inexperienced .one term Senator .people will just say keep Obama .same thing). Paul is a loose cannon and says stupid things. Palin is a possibility.
So the answer is Palin/Walker or Walker/Palin. That is the ONLY way to win.
I’m surprised Scott Walker is so low in the polling...
No one atm.
The media’s world, regardless of perceived political bent, has ZERO to do with reality. It’s not you.
As long as you have a rifle, you still have a vote.
Sorry to say but Sarah Palin is the death knell to any ticket running for POTUS...
Not that I won't vote for her in a second, she is badly damaged goods, which is no fault of hers, the left did a masterful job of destroying her...
A huge percent of this country are basically a notch above idiots and don't bother to even explore the vile disgusting lies the left spews about her...
Not in any particular order:
Walker / Brownback
Walker / Kasich
Walker / Martinez (New Mexico Governor)
Why on EARTH do you think we’d win a Civil War? And a coup? Never ... gonna ... happen.
We need real Conservative solutions not “let’s go to war”.
I don’t know why some think there is this lurking Conservative giant out there. There isn’t. This Nation is trending Left and hard. So what we need are leaders that get our word out. The other way sure isn’t working.
Boy did you nail it.
That hot chick from Alaska will do just fine.
Sounds like the previous election.
Re: “Im surprised Scott Walker is so low in the polling...”
I’m not too surprised -— he’s not been appearing on television nonstop like many of the others — no gimmicks, no nonsense, no bluster, just a hard worker who has done what he said he would do and beaten back a nasty recall at the same time. Oh, and Limbaugh loves him — great interview with him in the latest newsletter.
My vote goes to Walker if he wants to run - proven conservative governor in a very blue state.
I would take any of your suggestions 100 percent.
Jeb Bush 5 (0.9%)
Chris Christie 7 (1.3%)
Ted Cruz 249 (46.2%)
Mike Huckabee 2 (0.4%)
Bobby Jindal 4 (0.7%)
Sarah Palin 124 (23%)
Rand Paul 66 (12.2%)
Rick Perry 12 (2.2%)
Paul Ryan 5 (0.9%)
Rick Santorum 5 (0.9%)
Donald Trump 1 (0.2%)
Other 17 (3.2%)
Scott Walker 38 (7.1%)
Marco Rubio 2 (0.4%)
Mitt Romney 2 (0.4%)
The media always destroys the republicans because they are clueless and gutless when it comes to fighting back and defending themselves. They cower in the corner and are scared to say the truth. That’s why we need Cruz. He’s smart and not afraid and no one can argue with the facts as he lays them out. He destroys the idiots in the media.
