Rand Paul Is the 2016 Republican Frontrunner

Don't laugh. He has built-in advantages in Iowa and New Hampshire, a party moving in his direction, and formidable fundraising potential.
  • All along, the theory behind Christie's candidacy was that he could overcome his lack of conservative bona fides with a combination of personality, competence, electability, and money. Bridgegate undermines all four.
  • So if Christie is no longer the candidate to beat in the 2016 Republican race, who is? Believe it or not, it’s Rand Paul.
  • Bush used the political network his father built, he enjoyed many of the benefits of someone who had run before. It’s the same with Paul. In both Iowa and New Hampshire, he begins with an unparalleled infrastructure left over from his father Ron Paul’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns.
  • “Rand has a much broader appeal than his father,” Robinson says. Polls reflect that: A survey last December for the Des Moines Register found Paul with a lower unfavorability rating among Iowa Republicans than either Christie or Jeb Bush.
  • If Paul is, arguably, the early leader in Iowa, he may be the early frontrunner in New Hampshire as well. While Ron Paul placed third in Iowa in 2012, he placed second in New Hampshire, losing only to Mitt Romney
  • “If you whited out his name, and looked at his numbers,” Scala says of Paul, “you’d think he was a strong mainstream candidate.”
  • Paul looks like a better bet than anyone else to finish in the top two in both Iowa and New Hampshire. If he did, he’d establish himself as the leading anti-establishment candidate in the GOP field.
  • Of course, the more early success Paul enjoyed, the more fervently some GOP elites—unnerved by his anti-interventionist foreign-policy views and potential weakness in a general election—would rally around someone else. Such efforts have worked in the past.
  • Paul will never be the darling of the GOP establishment. But Republican elites may have a difficult time in forging a unified front against him.
  • If there’s one thing that could obviate all this, it’s the possibility that Paul could suffer his own candidacy-crippling scandal.
  • But even taking that possibility into account, Paul is in a stronger position than many in the media recognize. On issues from NSA surveillance to drug legalization to gay marriage, the GOP is moving in his direction. For his part, Paul is gaining acceptance within the Republican mainstream.
  • There’s no way of knowing at this point, of course. But political commentators are making a big mistake if they disregard the chance.

Well, I don't like Paul's ideas. But I do think it'd be interesting.

I think any R will have the advantage of riding the anti-Obama winds--just as Obama had the advantage of the anti-Bush winds.

I say his biggest advantage is a general election is that he's not as pro-war as the other Rs. That hits where most Americans are at.

All that being said, I'd like to keep him, as well as Cruz, in the Senate.

I doubt that. But then, you're probably using your own personal definition for those words so it's hard to say for sure.

It's just really funny reading that comment and seeing it was from you.

I'm sure you find a lot of things funny. I use words the way they're supposed to be used.

I like Paul. He isn't the perfect candidate but I think he could begin moving the country in the right direction and start undoing some of the stuff the past couple of administrations have done. Hopefully, on civil liberties that Bush and Obama have violated and continue to violate.

He's a good voice to have in the Senate.

Agreed, I wouldn't want him to run if he had to resign, but it sounds like he's going to try to keep his seat while also running for the nomination.

I don't think the GOP has much of a chance at all in 2016, but Rand Paul is one of the few guys who moves it from "almost no chance at all" to "slim"

Wow, we don't agree on that at all.

Paul would get shellacked in a general election. I hope the gop does nominate him.

The current best chance the gop has for the presidency is Walker.

Sure thing spanky. No one with Paul in their name will ever be president.
