Rand is Favorite in Michigan, Way Behind in Illinois

On Michigan, from Public Policy Polling:
Rand Paul narrowly leads the Republican field in the state with 18% to 16% for Chris Christie, 15% for Ted Cruz, 10% for Jeb Bush, 8% for Marco Rubio, 7% for Paul Ryan, 5% for Scott Walker, 4% for Bobby Jindal, and 2% for Rick Santorum. Christie win the moderates (31% to 15% for Paul and 8% for Cruz) and Cruz wins the voters identifying themselves as 'very conservative' (27% to 18% for Paul and 10% for Christie), but Paul leads overall because he's up with folks identifying as 'somewhat conservative' (21% to 10% for Cruz and 9% for Christie).
On Illinois, from Public Policy Polling:
Chris Christie is the top choice of Illinois Republicans to be their candidate for President in 2016. 18% say he would be their top choice to 13% for Ted Cruz, 12% for Jeb Bush, 10% for Rand Paul, 9% for Paul Ryan, 7% for Scott Walker, 6% for Marco Rubio, and 4% each for Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum. Walker's 7% standing is stronger than we've found for him anywhere else other than Wisconsin, probably because of geographic proximity, but it still shows he's just not that strong a national figure yet. We see the same pattern in Illinois as elsewhere- Christie crushes Cruz with moderates (26/8) and leads with 'somewhat conservative' voters (13/10) as well, which makes up for his getting blown out with 'very conservative' voters (24/12).


  1. It will be Jeb Bush with Condaleeza Rice as VP.
    Because of Jeb's wife, the Republitards can hispander to their heart's content.
    Hillary will have to out Diversify those creeps by picking the first gay male VP.
    The DemoTards will win in a landslide.

    1. No apologies required. Jeb vs Hillary is the best hope for liberty. Maximum wake-up effect. Hillary might be "asked" to pick Rahm as veep, but I bet she wants to make it an all girl ticket.

    2. ha.
      That's excactly whom I was thinking of.(Emmanuel).
      (unless Graham is ran out of South Carolina and he joins the Demos.)*

      Regardless, the election will be a Diverso-Fest.
      *(not that there is anything wrong with that)lol
