"This intra trade stuff still does not explain why Hunter has been dead in the water since the start of his campaign."
Hunter is dead in the water because the elites in DC and the crooks in NY won't let their political arm...the media, give him any coverage. The more people wakeup to this fact, the more outraged they will become. This is going to be the revolution of the people, not the civil war with guns a lot of people are talking about. It's time for the people to take back the capital with their own candidate.

(All reality is based on faith in something.)
Hunter’s media problem is not a conspiracy, but the fact that the media does not consider the House as qualifying experience for the job. Never has, never will. He’s drawing dead, to use a poker expression.
My evidence? Dennis Kucinich, with more experience than any of the front-running Dems, and nutty positions a lot of the media subscribe to, has the same problem.

Hunter is dead in the water because he has a poor campaign organization and no one knows who he is or what he's done. You have to create some interest in yourself before the MSN will show any interest.
Hunter has had 20+ years to create a persona while he served California. He didn't do that. No one knows who he is outside of California.

Looks like Earthdweller answered pretty good here.
I would add that there is this element to the republican party that is lazy when it comes to name recognition. Because if it’s anything at all about platform, TootyfruityRudy would be at 1% right now and Hunter would be on the top. With an approach like that, you end up with crappy presidents.

Huckabee seems to be using his artificial life support to full “useful idiot” effect.

SUSSA has an excellent analysis on why that isn't the reason for Hunter's failure thus far.
