Republican Field may not be so big after all

Are they that scared of losing?

Behold the Short Field?


It’s not inconceivable that the Republican presidential field could be Gingrich, Romney, and Pawlenty, with Huntsman and Santorum in the second tier (and Johnson and Cain farther back). The odds are that Daniels won’t run — he said on the NewsHour on Friday that “there are a lot of concerns that are very, very personal and family-oriented” for perhaps not doing it, and compared running to throwing “yourself off that cliff.” I wouldn’t be shocked if Barbour pulls up short; he hasn’t had a great two weeks since he’s been more out there.


I’m guessing Huckabee doesn’t run, although that’s only a guess, and Palin also might sit it out, but who knows? After all the build up about a wide-open, crowded Republican race, a short field would be quite the let-down.

Historically it gets down to one. This is some stellar work here.

If that's the field, and let's face it, it's the NationalNeoConReview....then it looks like Obama wins again. The Republican party is hopelessly lost.

If that's the field, Obama will get another term. Republicans may as well dust off McCain and tell him to have another go at it

No kidding? The point is this was supposed to be a wide open field of candidates but it may end up being rather small. If it is I think Romney is the nominee.

See you people get it while it is lost on hcf. The reason why it might be small is because they know they can't win against Obama.

I counted no fewer than 7 candidates who would be better presidents than BO in that list. It doesn't seem that short to me.

The only legit one is Romney the rest suck and would lose by double digits.

At the rate he's going this next election will be like the last. No matter who the GOP runs out they will beat BO. He's destined to be a 1 term president.

Of the guys on that list the only one I would feel halfway good about voting for would be Cain. And that makes me very uneasy

Obama is at 48% approval rating which is higher than Clinton at this same time

Your delusional if you think they could run out any candidate and win.

Your graph does not help you make this point.

A huge field does not help the party. Huckabee and Palin are both morons and are welcome to stay put at Fox. Cain, Gingrich, and Paul are all unelectable.

To me, this is Romney vs Pawlenty, and I'm supporting the latter for now.

These numbers have and will continue to fluctuate. Perhaps they can't run out anyone, but the trends along with his performance are not in his favor.
