I will go out on a limb and say that Marco Rubio will be President of The United States in 2017. Rubio best reflects the values and opinions of the majority in America. That is why I think he will be elected. I am not saying that Rubio is going to save America from itself.
I only see four electable candidates running for president of The United States at this time. Michael Bloomberg might jump in but I do not think a third-party candidate is electable. And with his gun control and New York values he would hurt the Democrats. If Clinton falters and Bloomburg somehow makes a deal to run as a Democrat he would become electable, as would Joe Biden.
The six candidates that still have some following but are not electable are:
- Sanders – Most Americans still are not socialists
- Bush – America has no interest in electing another Bush to be President
- Kasich – A moderate technocratic governor is not going to connect with conservative Republicans
- Christie – An eastern establishment big government moderate and anti-gun wind-bag is just not going to fly well in heartland Republican America
- Fiorina – Really is only still running to get a cabinet position in a Republican administration
- Carson – Just does not come across as Presidential material
I think most of these six will drop out before or just after Super Tuesday (March 1st).
The still electable candidates are Clinton, Trump, Cruz and Rubio.
Clinton – will be very fortunate to stay out of prison. I don’t think most Americans would vote for a national security criminal and liar that would also attempt to disarm them. However, strange things have happened before. Who would have believed that a black radical from the Chicago political syndicate would be elected to become President twice?
If Clinton becomes President of the United States in 2017, we will have government persecution of Bible believing Christians and patriotic Americans. We also will have a real revolution against government coming from some on the Right.
I think more Americans will learn that Hillary Clinton is deranged before the November election. Her support should fall as more information comes out. However, so many Americans have become so brainwashed, brain-dead and godless that even electing someone as evil as Hillary Clinton becomes possible.
Putting Hillary Clinton in the White House would end the Constitutional Republic. I do not think the majority of Americans when given the facts are crazy enough to elect her, but we shall soon see.
Trump – probably has already jumped the shark. The real reason that he would not attended the Fox News debate is that he knew they had video tapes of him that would have exposed his liberal statements of the recent past. Trump never was and is not now conservative.
As people find out about the real Donald Trump his numbers will fall. Trump already is blaming everyone else for his loss in Iowa. Cruz may have damaged Carson a bit by the deception coming out of Cruz’s camp but Trump would have remained at 24 percent and 24 percent support throughout the heartland states is not going to get Trump nominated.
Trump needs to have an overwhelming victory in New Hampshire to remain credible. He probably will in that state. However, Trump really does not have the ground organization necessary to be successful in a fifty state campaign. He might not even have the liquid assets necessary to self-fund his campaign for the long haul. What if Trump had to declare bankruptcy again right before the election against Hillary? If equities keep falling and properties tank because we go back into a recession, that is not out of the realm of possibilities.
Trump will need about 60 percent of the elected delegates to win the nomination outright. That is because 168 delegates are not decided through the state elections. Three come from the Republican establishment of each of the fifty states and the remainder are prominent national Republican leaders. If Trump does not win outright on the first vote, the delegates keep voting until they come up with someone. After a deadlock on the first round the delegates will not be dealing Trump cards.
Trump would have to win most of the major states to get 60 percent of the delegates but with his poor showing in Iowa I doubt that Trump will get anywhere near 60 percent. He could be a kingmaker at the convention but who would Trump endorse? Probably not Ted Cruz.
Trump also has the worst showing in the polls against Clinton. He loses bad to Hillary. That is because Trump has higher negative ratings than anyone running — even Hillary Clinton. As this race progresses I think Republicans will vote for someone who can beat Clinton. She is the common enemy of all patriots in this Republic.
I also think some people are beginning to get the message that Trump is blowing smoke. He says he will deport all illegals, but then he says he will let most of them back in again. He says that he will stop Muslims from coming here and deport the one’s that Obama let in, but he does not say how that deportation could possibly be accomplished. He says he could make a better deal with Iran, but he would not nullify the deal that Obama made. He says Obamacare is a disaster, but he says he wants a one payer system like Canada or Great Britain (government controlled health care). He says he is against abortion, but he says he is not against the choice to have one. He says he is conservative, but he thinks a pro-choice liberal like his sister would make a good Supreme Court Justice, etc, etc.
Trump says he will make America great again but talk does not make that happen. Trump just says the things that he thinks Republicans want to hear. Trump is good at itching ears. Trump never was a conservative and he never could be a conservative with his liberal New York values. Don’t bet on Trump being President of The United States in 2017.
Cruz – on the record Cruz is the most conservative person running. He is my choice and I still believe he would be the best choice for America and conservative Christians. However, his flaws tell me that he will not end up as America’s choice for President of The United States in 2017.
A Christian should not resort to deception to advance himself. Cruz’s campaign used dirty tricks to win the Iowa election. They sent out official looking flyers that told people they would be in election violation if they did not come out and vote. Then at the caucuses people in the Cruz campaign spread the false rumor that Ben Carson had dropped out so they should vote for Cruz. Cruz apologized to Carson for his people doing that, but thus far he has taken no action to clean his own house. When Carson drops out of the race you can be sure he is not going to be telling his supporters to vote for Ted Cruz.
I find it ironic that someone who thinks that he was anointed to become President would then allow such sleazy methods to be used to try to achieve that end. Adherence to the United States Constitution and conservatism are not the only things that reveals someone’s character. The least Cruz can do is clean up his own house. He has until the Republican debate on Feb 6th to do that or he will be on the defensive.
Cruz won the most votes in Iowa. However, with the facts coming out about how he played dirty ball to win in Iowa, it is hard to see out that translates into momentum for Cruz in future elections. Keep in mind, that the person that won the election in Iowa has not won the Republican nomination in recent previous elections.
South Carolina is very important for Cruz but I don’t see him winning it. Trump will probably win South Carolina even on his way down and Cruz will come in second. Macro Rubio could even catch Cruz on his way up.
Cruz certainly will get a substantial amount of the delegates before the convention, but not enough to win outright. If there is a deadlocked convention, Cruz is not likely to be the person selected.
Cruz appears like some Lone Ranger that is on a crusade to reestablish truth, justice and the American way. However, the only real friends that the Lone Ranger had was Tonto and Trigger. And Superman only had Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen. Cruz has made many enemies in the Republican establishment and most would even take Trump before him.
Ted Cruz is not liked by other politicians nor by the press. They actually do have influence in America. Someone like Cruz is not going to get elected in a post Christian America that believes more in American Pie than American Christian Dominionism.
And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The Puritan Christian dominion train has long left the station. It cannot be reestablished without a moral revolution. Most Americans are not going to buy into Cruz’s vision for America. In fact, there will be violent upheaval against his administration in big cities of America if Cruz was President of The United States in 2017.
Rubio – I now will explain why I believe Marco Rubio will become President of The United States in 2017.
Rubio is a conservative that is acceptable to the Republican establishment and he is liked by the majority of Americans. His major negative was the amnesty bill that he cosponsored in 2013. Rubio has since backed off amnesty completely. He says the borders have to be made secure and immigration laws need to be enforced before America can decide what to do about the people who are already here. Americans have short memories anyway, in fact, many are brain-dead and have no memories on political issues at all.
Rubio can unite the Republican Party because he is acceptable to all major factions of the party.
Rubio has much experience in politics for his young age. He even was Speaker of the House in Florida for two years. He also is sure to get much of the Hispanic vote and Rubio would win Florida. This swing state has been a must win state for Republicans in recent elections.
Rubio appears to debate as well as Cruz and he has a more friendly and acceptable physical appearance, personality, and voice. If you think that does not matter in America, you are being naive.
Rubio by far gets the highest percentages in the polls when matched against Hillary Clinton. Rubio is the Democratic Party’s worst nightmare.
Rubio got 23 percent of the vote in Iowa. He almost beat Trump and he got the same number of delegates as Trump. He was not supposed to be anywhere in that ballpark. That will give Rubio momentum in future races along with increasing endorsements and big dollar donors.
Rubio will rapidly become the establishment pick when Bush, Kasich or Christi do not beat him in New Hampshire. The very latest polls now puts Rubio in second place in New Hampshire behind Trump. He is even ahead of Cruz. Rubio will probably keep his momentum and do well on Super Tuesday.
Even if Rubio comes in third place with total delegate count at the Republican convention, he still would probably end up with the nomination if the first vote does not produce a winner. Rubio would get quite a few establishment votes and Tea Party votes. Keep in mind, that Rubio was Tea Party backed when he ran against former Governor Crist for that Florida senate seat.
Rubio is the American success story. He came from Cuban immigrants that were common working class people. He got a football scholarship to attend College. He distinguished himself in higher education and in politics. He married his school sweetheart who was a Miami Dolphin cheerleader. They are raising four children. He is younger than any of the candidates but he has political experience beyond his years. Rubio never got rich from politics. He is the poorest of all the candidates. That tells Americans that he has not been selling political favors.
Rubio is a Catholic but he also regularly attends the tenth largest Protestant evangelical mega church in the nation. His wife hosts a home Bible study. In his personal statements about his faith he actually gets salvation theology correct. He will get votes from people in all spectrum’s of Christendom. Whereas, Cruz will be limited to mostly conservative evangelical support.
Rubio is the obvious favorite of Fox news. Rupert Murdock and Megan Kelly like him. Even Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity like him.
And last but not least. Gambling bookmakers say that bets indicate that Marco Rubio will be President of The United States in 2017. Those that put their money where their mouth is should not be discounted.
