View Full Version : Who's running and who's not?

Ok, so let's see who our competition is. We've got at least a few whose campaigns are already in the gutter (Cain, Gingrich). Those who have too little support for us to worry about right now (Santorum, Pawlenty, Huntsman). Then, there is Bachmann who is enjoying a bump in the polls but has not been vetted yet. Romney sits at the top, but may become vulnerable once the race for the anti-Romney settles.

But who else is actually running?

We have potential runs from Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, and Giuliani.

Which of these is most likely to run, and how will it affect our campaign? We see lots of polls that include one or all of these potential candidates, but how does it affect the race if Perry and Palin don't run?

It's starting to feel like it's getting late in the race for others to jump in. If I were not an RP supporter and was looking at other candidates, I'm have serious doubts about the seriousness of those last 3 you listed because they've excluded themselves from the important early rounds of the race.

I don't think Giuliani will run at all, Palin may but likely won't, Perry is pondering over it but considering the fact that even though he's the Governor he can't even get ahead of Ron in Texas might make him reluctant, not to mention he's trailing too much nationally as well but you never know.

Cain is fizzling out which is good & (keeping the above equations in mind) the sooner Bachmann fizzles out the better because then it'll be Ron v Romney & we can really attack his socialist background & get the majority of the GOP voters to stand behind Ron as the more conservative of the two but again, he might Rand as his VP tilt the scales before the primaries because of the "isolationist" meme, Rand appeals to the mainstream GOP because he takes a "centrist" position on wars & imperialism so he'd balance out Ron's "extreme isolationism".
