Bloggers Opine On 2016

Unfortunately, John Hawkins doesnít include me in his sample of conservative bloggers when he runs his polls, despite being listed among the top 150 conservative sites recently. But his latest survey does have some interesting results

1) Which of the following candidates would you most prefer to see as the GOPís 2016 candidate?
1) Marco Rubio (FL Senator) 20.5% (16 votes)
2) Rand Paul (KY Senator) 14.1% (11 votes)
3) Scott Walker (WI Governor) 11.5% (9 votes)
4) Bobby Jindal (LA Gov) 9% (7 votes)
4) Paul Ryan (WI Congressman. VP candidate) 9% (7 votes)
6) Jeb Bush (Former Fl Governor) 6.4% (5 votes)
6) Sarah Palin (Former AL Governor. VP candidate) 6.4% (5 votes)
8) Mike Pence (IN Governor) 5.1% (4 votes)
9) Susana Martinez (NM Governor) 3.8% (3 votes)
10) Chris Christie (NJ Governor) 2.6% (2 votes)
11) Ted Cruz (TX Senator) 2.6% (2 votes)
12) Rick Perry (TX Governor) 1.3% (1 votes)
12) Mike Huckabee (Former AK Governor) 1.3% (1 votes)
12) Mitch Daniels (Former IN Governor) 1.3% (1 votes)
12) Condi Rice (Former Secretary of State) 1.3% (1 votes)
12) Rick Santorum (Former PA Senator) 1.3% (1 votes)
12) Nikki Haley (SC Gov) 1.3% (1 votes)
12) Bob McDonnell (VA Governor) 1.3% (1 votes)
19) Jan Brewer (AZ Governor) 0.0% (0 votes)
19) Eric Cantor (VA Congressman) 0.0% (0 votes)
19) Rob Portman (OH Senator) 0.0% (0 votes)
19) Brian Sandoval (NV Governor) 0.0% (0 votes)

2) What if the list were narrowed down to the following 10 candidates? Then, which one would you prefer to see as our 2016 nominee?
1) Marco Rubio (FL Senator) 26.9% (21 votes)
2) Paul Ryan (WI Congressman. VP candidate) 17.9% (14 votes)
3) Rand Paul (KY Senator) 16.7% (13 votes)
4) Scott Walker (WI Governor) 14.1% (11 votes)
5) Bobby Jindal (LA Gov) 11.5% (9 votes)
6) Jeb Bush (Former Fl Governor) 6.4% (5 votes)
7) Susana Martinez (NM Governor) 5.1% (4 votes)
8) Chris Christie (NJ Governor) 1.3% (1 votes)
9) Bob McDonnell (VA Governor) 0.0% (0 votes)
9) Brian Sandoval (NV Governor) 0.0% (0 votes)

3) If the list were narrowed down to the following 10 candidates, then which one would you **** LEAST LIKE **** to see as our 2016 nominee?
1) Chris Christie (NJ Governor) 32.5% (25 votes)
2) Jeb Bush (Former Fl Governor) 26% (20 votes)
3) Rand Paul (KY Senator) 14.3% (11 votes)
4) Scott Walker (WI Governor) 11.7% (9 votes)
5) Paul Ryan (WI Congressman. VP candidate) 5.2% (4 votes)
6) Susana Martinez (NM Governor) 3.9% (3 votes)
7) Brian Sandoval (NV Governor) 2.6% (2 votes)
8) Bob McDonnell (VA Governor) 1.3% (1 votes)
8) Marco Rubio (FL Senator) 1.3% (1 votes)
8) Bobby Jindal (LA Gov) 1.3% (1 votes)

4) What if the list were narrowed down to the following 6 candidates? Then, which one would you prefer to see as our 2016 nominee?
1) Marco Rubio (FL Senator) 35.1% (27 votes)
2) Rand Paul (KY Senator) 22.1% (17 votes)
3) Paul Ryan (WI Congressman. VP candidate) 18.2% (14 votes)
4) Scott Walker (WI Governor) 15.6% (12 votes)
5) Jeb Bush (Former Fl Governor 6.5% (5 votes)
6) Chris Christie (NJ Governor) 2.6% (2 votes)

Now Iíll be up front with you on this one. On the first two questions my answer would be Bobby Jindal, on Question 3 it would be Chris Christie, and on Question 4 I would likely follow the lead of my fellow bloggers and go with Rubio. As for the remaining questions, I urge you to visit Johnís results page to see what they were and how the crew that responded answered Ė and will say that Iím not always in agreement with their choices, especially on the final question.

Comments on Bloggers Opine On 2016

Suppose a congressman who was very photogenic and had a strong positive personality and was well liked was offerred as a presidential candidate. But suppose this congressman's priority if elected was to destor the 2nd amendment. He would probably still get high positives from many segments of the voting public but could he get enough of his base to vote for him? His negatives would destroy his chances of being elected even though his positives would "look" good. Rubio wants amnesty, period. He wants to give all the illegals here today amnesty and do it in a way that would make them all immediately eligble to petition to bring family members into the country. Quite honestly I would far prefer Rubio if he wanted to end the 2nd amendment or the 1st amendment then I would considering his views on illegal immigration. I attribute this intent on his part to the siomple fact that he puts his own culture and the country of his families origin ahead of America. He is a hispanic first and an American second. If he runs for president I will not just not vote for him I will vote for his opponent regardless of who it is. If the Republicans put up a candidate opposed to private ownership of guns I would similarly vote for his opponent. These are two issues I feel strongly about and would oppose. There may be a few million conservatives who agree with me but whose views would not show on a popularity poll.
