The 2016 election cycle is heating up, on the GOP side many have declared their candidacy and others are still considering running.  It’s too early to know who the GOP will nominate at their July 2016 convention in Cleveland — that’s the point — to later be able to compare 2015 perceptions with 2016 reality.

For today’s poll I combined declared & potential candidates from these two sites:

There was a lot of overlap, but each had some not listed on the other. Here is the combined list of 47, listed alphabetical:

  1. Skip Andrews
  2. Kelly Ayotte
  3. Haley Barbour
  4. John Bolton
  5. Kerry Bowers
  6. Jeb Bush
  7. Herman Cain
  8. Dr. Ben Carson
  9. Dale Christensen
  10. Chris Christie
  11. Ted Cruz
  12. Mitch Daniels
  13. John Dummett, Jr.
  14. Bob Ehrlich
  15. Mark Everson
  16. Carly Fiorina
  17. Newt Gingrich
  18. Lindsey Graham
  19. Nikki Haley
  20. Chris Hill
  21. Mike Huckabee
  22. Bobby Jindal
  23. John Kasich
  24. Peter King
  25. Michael Kinlaw
  26. Dennis Michael Lynch
  27. Susana Martinez
  28. Sarah Palin
  29. George Pataki
  30. Rand Paul
  31. Ron Paul
  32. Tim Pawlenty
  33. Mike Pence
  34. Rick Perry
  35. Michael Petyo
  36. Condoleezza Rice
  37. Mitt Romney
  38. Marco Rubio
  39. Brian Russell
  40. Mitch Sandoval
  41. Rick Santorum
  42. Tim Scott
  43. Rick Snyder
  44. John Thune
  45. Donald Trump
  46. Scott Walker
  47. Allen West

I usually randomize the answers in the poll (right sidebar), but because of the sheer number of names they’re displayed in alphabetical order. The poll question isn’t who you want to see make it to the final 5, but rather who you think will be the 5 who survive the next 9-12 months.

Please be sure to pick 5 answers, the poll closes at 8pm tonight. UPDATE: Because of a software problem this morning I’m going to leave this open until 10pm.

    Why is the poll “closed” at 8:50 am?

    Don’t care, they’re all so god-awful none of them have a chance. Well, Rick Snyder might have a chance, but he won’t run.
