Rudy -and please correct me if I'm wrong- are loathed by most New Yorkers. They couldn't wait for him to get the hell outta office. If there would have been no 9/11 (where he was happy to pose left and right in the aftermath, but done precious little else) he wouldn't have a slightest chance to be considered.

Another thought, NYC crime rate did fall, but it wasn't neccessarily due to the rigorous policing, but rather attributed to the fact (according to the Economist/Statistician Steven Leavitt) that abortion has been made legal twenty odd years prior, and a whole new generation of gangsters and scum simply do not exist...

Sorry, but Guiliani would be huge mistake for the country.

I agree. I also withold my vote from McCain. I dont understand why Republicans are willing to settle for the lesser of the conservative candidates and go for the Rudys and McCains. There are plenty of other candidates out there and I hope that a strong conservative comes forward, like some already in that poll that arent front runners right now. (I dont consider Bush a conservative anymore either.)

In Rudy's case, because they want a candidate capable of winning an election?

This is a very old post, from March of this spring. I believe it was posted at least 2 weeks before Ron Paul announced his candidacy. Fred Thompson isn't on there either.

Someone just saw it and bumped it to the top by replying, so its a very old thread.

Voted romney in the poll since there wasnt a ron paul. I find it intresting you left out the 4th (almost 3rd) highest cash raising canidate out of the poll. Cash on hand he's actually 3rd.

Yeah where is Ron Paul? Tancrado and Gilmore are barely registering in the polls. At least Paul is ahead of them. Brownback is out. Come on. Who do I want to see be the GOP nominee? PAUL OF COURSE!! If not I don't know who to pull for.

I would certainly like to see the Republican party return to its roots as defined in this disputed Wiki piece as follows:

Republicanism is the political value system that has been a major part of American political thought since the American Revolution. It stresses liberty and rights as central values, makes the people as a whole sovereign, rejects aristocracy and inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent and calls on them to perform civic duties, and is strongly opposed to corruption. The American version of republicanism was formed by the Founding Fathers in the 18th century and was based on English models as well as Roman, European ideas, and the precepts regarding rule of law in the biblical Book of Deuteronomy. It formed the basis for the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution (1787), as well as critical statements from Abraham Lincoln and others. It is not the same as democracy, for republicanism asserts that people have inalienable rights that cannot be voted away by a majority of voters; the two political philosophies have influenced but do not literally define their political party namesakes, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.
