Do you think that the next Republican candidate will likely win since four more years of Obama?

IMPORTANT: Many surveys for a few years and during this election state that Republicans will NOT ever again choose an establishment candidate, but they will instead choose someone completely outside the Washington loop, they will choose a candidate who is NON establishment for small government.


amor unis, what does this mean? Anyway when was last time Michigan and Massachusets went Republican, never? They are democrat states.

Update 2:

Justagra, it's not me who is wishful thinking, this is what many surveys of Republicans state, they will never again elect a "establishment" candidate, but someone outside of Washington. I don't know about the tea party, but imagine they would want the same. The republican base is conservative and they don't want any establishment candidate ever again, all surveys say the same for years. We'll see how this works out.

Update 3:

John S., you do realize that half the country is conservative and they are not all tea party people, but they and all conservatives from the surveys will demand an NON establishment candidate next election, a true grass roots candidate of and for the people. Surveys all clearly say this for years.

    If the Republicans do that they will assure themselves of an even greater loss than they suffered this time. The Tea Party has to learn that they can win primaries in an increasingly marginalized GOP, and the occasional congressional seat, but they will not win general elections because their ideas are far out of step with most of America.

    No, I think you're engaging in some wishful thinking. If Republicans are going to succeed even in remaining a pertinent party the Establishment Republicans will take it back and leave the Tea Party on its own, with its own funding, the country simply isn't that rightwing, and doesn't want all the issues, not just smaller government that they would bring with them.

    TP has really made that tail wag the dog, and they cannot win on a national basis.

    I made this prediction a while ago...let's see if it pans out.

    Romney was never a clear favorite. The GOP establishment pushed for him...the media made sure to kill off his competition.

    I expect to see the Tea Party either revolt and take over the GOP, or form their own party.

    The reason they didn't do it this time was because the GOP kept saying we need to back one candidate and not split our vote. Well....how did that work out? Next time the GOP can back our candidate.

    No Romney lost in Michigan his home state , he lost in Massachutsettes the state he was elected as Governor a place where the Republican Party he claimed he done so much good for but these states wouldn't even vote for if that doesn't speak volumes what will???

    I placed my civil rights earlier basically all different subject concerns. I actual have self assurance that Obama will "evolve" to assist marriage equality for the time of his 2d term. I get excitement from his record on gay subject concerns to this point, quite thinking how massive a large number the economic equipment and our budge are in. He has afforded a important volume of time to LGBT subject concerns, some thing that maximum human beings of people in all probability don't experience choose addressing. I say good for him, and that i will vote for him in 2012.

    as long as the republicans embrace intolerance and religious fundamentalism, they will continue to lose support ...
