Three Republican Front Runners Are Pulling Ahead of the Field

    The crowded field of the Republican may finally have its clear front runners. Iowa voters were almost evenly split between Donald Trump, Senator Cruz, and Senator Rubio. If New Hampshire agrees then these three will certainly be the official "top tier" candidates for the Republican Party.

    Senator Rubio is trying to position himself as the most electable candidate while outsiders like Cruz and Trump have struck a chord with Republicans who feel their voices aren't being heard by the establishment wing of the party. If Rubio is able to pull ahead then the establishment may be able to take a breath of fresh air, but if Cruz or Trump wins the nomination then the entire rule book of the Republican Party can be thrown out the window.

    I'm someone who thinks insurgent Presidential candidates don't stand a chance and history has proven me right over and over again. But crazier things have happened in politics and I wouldn't be surprised if Republican voters decide to tell the establishment wing of the party that they are a force to be reckoned with. I guess only time will tell.

    I'd be surprised if Rubio wins the nomination. He's really been stumbling lately and I don't know if he has what it takes to grind out a win.

    I also don't see Trump or Cruz winning, but as you said, crazier things have happened throughout our nations history.

    We need someone who has no financial ties to the "established political machine" to lead us out of this mess.

    The CBS debate tonight is idiotic. Bush supporters have the bulk of the seats in the audience and are crudely booing Trump and others. Bush will try and buy this election. He paid $12K per vote in New Hampshire. Really? Come on. Jeb get out of the race.

    Rubio is totally "Sarah Palin" like. He's being propped up and sounds like a puppet.

    Finding a candidate who has no financial ties to the established political machine is impossible. Both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the two candidates who are running against the political norm, still have ties to political machines.

    I am someone who thinks Donald Trump is playing the Republican Party. A billionaire who inherited his billions is not someone who understands the working class of America. If anyone thinks their life would get better under a Trump Presidency then they are living in a fantasy world.

    It really looks like Marco Rubio is now the favorite among the establishment wing. He's seen a huge uptick in money from major donors after Jeb Bush officially dropped out.

    I have to admit that I was really surprised when I heard that Bush dropped out of the race. He had the money and name power, but he must have come to the conclusion that there wasn't a path to victory for him.
