This poll of Republicans was taken by WBUR (Boston's NPR Radio Station) after Paris: November 14-15, 2015.

http://s3.amazonaws.com/media.wbur.o...epublicans.pdf

It has a margin of error of 4.9%

New Hampshire

The first percentage: voters who say they know for whom they are voting. The second percentage: all the voters in the first group plus people who are leaning toward a particular candidate.

Trump 22%, 23%
Carson 11%, 13%
Rubio 11%, 13%
Cruz 8%, 8%
Bush 7%, 7%
Kasich 7%, 7%
Christie 5%, 6%
Paul 5%, 5%
Fiorina 3%, 4%

Everyone else less than 3%.

I think it is interesting that Paul is only polling 5% in the state that is the most libertarian, according to the following article.

This is not the year of ideology. I have set aside a lot of my orthodox conservative views to go with Trump. It is the year of getting things done not checking boxes.

I think you are right. In 2004, a lot of people I knew had the mindset of "Anyone But Bush". Now I think a lot of people will vote "Anyone But a Democrat", so if Trump ends up being the Republican candidate . . .

I said it is not the year of ideology. Why do you say Democrat? The Democrats on the scene are hard line ideologues.

Voting against someone rather than for someone else has been the pattern in American politics for at least 10 years now. It may be somewhat diminished in the primaries, but come the general, Republicans will vote AGAINST Clinton and it does not matter who the Republican candidate is. Dems will vote against the R. What it comes down to is who will those with less closely held political views vote for or against.

What I meant is that there are a LOT of people who are so disgusted with Obama and his ilk that they will not vote for a Democrat, no matter what. (If Obama could run for a third term, I would have said the feeling among many would be "Anyone But Obama".) I always voted for the Democrat POTUS candidate until 2012, but next year I am inclined to vote for a Republican if the Republican candidate is Kasich or Rubio (or maybe Paul).

As someone pointed out in another thread, once again it is another tough year for moderates such as myself; and this will be the fourth consecutive POTUS election year that I will be voting against someone instead of for someone -- in other words, I will once again be voting for whoever I see as being the least horrible instead of voting for someone who I truly believe will be a good president.

Rubio is a Rino and controlled by big money.. not good for him to get into the white house.. He is very soft on amnesty.

Kasich expanded Medicaid. Big government.. same as Christie..
