"moderate republicans" dont exist until they have left office.

Thats when they see the light on marijuana, gay rights, and women's choice.

Michele Bachman was big on submission, although not currently in office. There is not one female republican politician who is even close to running for president. But I do think Nikki Haley seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

I think eventually we'll see moderate Republicans. There are young Republicans coming up, and I think some of the women who are Republican for major issues don't feel they're represented when it comes to other issues.

Never say never!

While currently 2 out of the 3 Democratic front runners can be defined as elderly males.

Will the republican party ever elect a female or black president?


For all of Obama's two terms, republicans firmly disagreed that they were racist. But again there has never been a non-white male republican candidate in the final race.
Why are we even entertaining the idea that President Trump is not running for a second term? He already is, so you'd best focus any hypotheticals on 2024. And I like Nikki Haley as much as anyone, so when the right time comes, she'll be a very good candidate for the White House if she truly wants it.

And what's the real point of your poll? I'm voting conservative regardless of whether the candidate du jour is male, female, black, green, purple, what have you. It's more about message than makeup.

The possibility of a female prez is only maybe in the last 40 years or so, so about 10 election cycles. 10 is too small of a sample size to draw any conclusions about trends.

A lot of people wanted Condi Rice to run in 2008. I believe she could have won, but she didn't want it. Unless Trump loses in 2020, there is probably no chance for a while, since Pence would then be the likely nominee in 2024.

The modern Democratic part is afflicted with the worst case of projection I've ever witnessed. They're openly (dare I say, proudly) racist, sexist, and intolerant, yet try to assign those characteristics to everyone else. It's been said before, but is worth repeating: The Democrats lost a Presidential election to Donald Trump. I would have bet everything I own that such a feat wasn't possible. Yet, they've learned nothing, and are doubling-down on their hysteria-based, fear/hate mongering politics.
And hopefully, the 20 to 33 percent of the electorate who still swallow their swill are in for another hard lesson come November of 2020.

Martha McSally has bigger problems. She will be fortunate to win her next Senate election in 2020. Her performance against Kyrsten Sinema in 2018 was an embarassment.
