A 2.1 point spread between Trump and Sanders is hardly ''getting creamed".

Look it's not going to be Trump or Carson. Paul is done and Cruz has no staying power beyond Iowa. It'll come down to Bush versus Rubio, and the latter has not seen the scrutiny to which Bush, by virtue of being a President's brother, has been subjected. Rubio is not up to it, this time (though I think he is a very viable future nominee). Bush is still the favorite this time around.

So to answer your question - I think Bush will exit the race when he picks up the phone around 10:30 pm Eastern Standard Time, Tuesday, November 8, 2016, to concede the race to President-elect Clinton.
Yep. I agree. He will somehow find a way to separate himself from that clan. I don't like his policies very much, but I have a strong feeling he's going to win the presidency.

Ideology, schmology.

Interesting to note that, several months ago, Bill Gates in an interview stated that he does not recommend subsidizing renewable/alternative energy projects, citing the fact that they cannot stand on their own two feet, and recommends instead big spending on primary research, suggesting that we are not there yet on current technology but could be on more innovative ones.

I think his policy suggestions and recommendations are very interesting and worth serious consideration.

In the face of any ideology.

But we digress.

I agree with those who say that Jeb! will drop out shortly after Super Tuesday unless he scores some significant victories in the actual primary voting.

By a socialist from Vermont? Had it been a "normal" candidate, Sanders would be the one getting creamed.

He isn't a "Socialist" in the true Economic terms but I have to remember this is "Murica" we are talking to.
Bernie would be "normal" in Canada and much of Western Europe.
He isn't trying to have the Government overtake private corporations which is what true "Socialism" is but the right wing labels it as such.
His "Socialism" deals with economic fairness in Employment & Education and not the over taking of private businesses & Corporations in the US.
He is far from a radical "Socialist" but let the GOP Swine label him as such!

Rand Paul
Huckabee
Jindal
Graham
Santorum
Pataki

I would say Paul he has a major skeleton if the cables news stations would talk about this he would have dropped about 6 weeks ago

He labeled himself, I didn't. Don't blame his unelectability on me.

If Jeb can get in the game, all he has to do is take 2nd or 3rd in the early primaries to go all the way to Super Tuesday, just like Romney did.

The real question is if Jeb can get in the game. So far, he has all the magnetism of a mud pie and shows no sign of being able to do anything but bore his audiences to sleep. Even Romney, with all his stuttering and wooden ways, did a lot better with a stump speech, and Mitt developed the ability to score a cutting point here or there in the debates, something Jeb has been unable to do.

Unfortunately American voters look at personalities over substance. Jeb doesn't have a chance in the personality department.

I know liberals never get asked hard questions, but, if he is for the little guy (allegedly)

1. Why doesn't he go after Hillary harder.?
2. How would he replace the income if the highest tax tier chooses to move to other countries?
3. Why is he pushing so hard for illegal immigrants, and driving down working wages?
4. What other ideas does he have besides wealth confiscation?
5. What would he do about government accountability?
5. what would he do about IRS agents who don't pay their taxes?

For starters.
