I can see this Republican process is facing a lot of issues.
(I wonder who is behind them, Obama never got vetted like this)

Can any of you see a convention draft?

Who do you think the possibilties could be?
Is there even anyone?

hate to use the word NEVER, but dont see that scenario mainly because there would be no majority...its down to Mitt vs Newt vs Santorum with RP siphoning off his 10% of loyal supporters...There isnt anyone out there with the political clout or the mu$cle to mount a campaign at this late a date

the only thing that is united about the R party is that they want to defeat BHO...unfortunately the way they want to do it,is about as diverse as the different ways to train a dog

I too doubt that we will see a Draft at the convention.

Nomination is between Rmoney and Ron Paul. Both are head to head with Obama when we look at the larger sample, that being national polls.

Santorum may win SC or do very well but, SC hardly represents a sampling of the entire nation.

RP is heading for Idaho, Nevada and Virginia after SC where he could win;-) Rmoney should win Florida.

Franco, I dont know what polls you are looking at but I see nothing that backs up your premise...RP wont win any state with a closed primary...the only states he does well are those with open primaries or caucuses

As for your claim that he goes head to head with BHO, you have got to be kidding

Bon, take your blinders off.
Looking at the polls you posted, the top 2 vs Obama are Rmoney and RP!

Well said Franco, it's going to be an interesting Fall.
