I'm trying to figure out what this means.

They were out for her flinging mud and conspiracies more at her than Obama.

Mike Huckabee is running for president? I lose track of who is on the lunatic train at any one time. As of today, I guess we've now got Rick "I've changed my look to look intellectual" Perry, Mike "I make rape-y comments while parading family values" Huckabee, Ted "Not only am I fucking crazy, but now I'm an insensitive jerk, too!" Cruz, and good ol' Rick Santorum. Should be quite the fun primary.

Right now Hillary would have to murder someone in order to lose.

I wouldn't, objectively, discount Jeb. But yeah he's a long shot considering a lot of social stances.

Again, Scott Walker is his only competition. Jeb will definitely be hurt by those on the far, far right wanting to go with somebody else, but they're going to split the vote between so many other guys that Jeb will fare alright in a lot of the early states. The longer more people stay in the race, the more likely Jeb wins via attrition since they cancel each other out.

The worst thing that could happen to Jeb is for someone like Walker to win the early states or be the only real challenger left after New Hampshire. Otherwise, he's got a $100,000,000 war chest behind him already.

At the end of the day, the guy who is not desired from the far right usually receives the bid though, no? Highest odds of winning independents.

Theoretically, they would do better with undecideds than someone on the far right. If you can effectively win the establishment/moderate vote in the Republican primary the way Romney did last time, you're almost guaranteed the nomination.

For what it's worth, McCain and Romney both polled the best of any major Republican candidate against the Democratic contenders/Obama in the last two elections. So they were the most strategically sensible picks.

It's not so clear cut this time as to whom has that honor among this GOP field. Had BridgeGate never happened, it would be Christie by a mile. He was polling ahead of Clinton in various polls before that. I get the feeling a lot of idiots would have voted for him simply because he's fat...identity politics at its most loathsome.

I think this time they'll get their nutso far-right candidate in somebody like Walker. He'll lose by a landslide and they'll just blame it on the liberal media and continue to tank further Presidential elections.
