They are all hoping Trump and/or Carson will self destruct. That's 50% of the vote up for grabs.
I think you're right.

Bush isn't leaving the race soon. Why should he? The first primaries are still a long way (in political terms) off. Anything can happen by then.

Would you vote for Bill Gates, who has a very liberal ideology, simply because he built such a large business? I respect Donald Trump for his business feats, but a good President that does not make.

I haven't heard anything about pledged delegates. Hillary has quite a few pledges, but nothing was every said about pledges within the Republican Party.

Please! I hope that Rubio never becomes president. He was one of the gang of 8 who concocted that nightmare of a so-called immigration reform bill which is nothing but a euphemism for amnesty. I know I pointed this out before but that bill has provisions in it that will hurt Americans. For example:

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/bill-g...221300301.html

^Do YOU find that acceptable?

Rubio also wants to greatly increase the number of H1-B visas allowed per year. He wants this despite the fact that sleazy employers are using the visa to lay off their American workers. That visa program was never meant to be used that way. It was created to fill jobs when companies couldn't find American workers.

Here, here!

Southern California Edison laid off 500 programmers so they could hire 500 imported contract workers.

Not to be outdone in screwing the American worker, Disney laid of 600 IT workers in Florida for the same reason. This sucks. We need to start boycotting these companies. Disney is movies, TV, and many other things. Americans who think our corporations should not be importing workers should boycott these companies, and those who sponsor them. Let's start with corporations that advertise on ABC TV.

And don't take your family to Disney anything this year or ever, until they can the bastards in Disney management behind this stuff and return to being a decent corporate citizen.

Jeb should save his dignity & self respect and drop out already. America isn't ready for another Bush in the White House especially since we just recovered economically from his brother's disasterous Presidency.

Go home Jeb!

Yeah, and guess what? Rubio denounced the bill by the end. Of course the bill would have provisions like that; half of the bill was concocted by Democrats. Had Rubio actually supported the end product, then I would have been worried.

I am not a registered republican. I keep my options open. Not one of those R or D voters only. I vote across the board depending on who says and thinks and wants to do what I think is correct. Romney surely wasn't it and the way they treated Ron Paul and his delegates completely turned me off to ever even considering voting for him. I saw him as nothing more than the white obama.

Yes I am. Do you have proof to back that up? Most places are just doing Everyone vs Clinton matchups.
