This question pretty much sums up the status quo for the US Presidential Elections in the near future… Dems start at 246 electoral votes by "default".. and Obama won 332 – 206 against Romney.. and even without Florida, Ohio and Virginia… Obama still would’ve won..
Can a Paul, Rubio, Christie or Jeb Bush get to 270? If so, how??
As a conservative here is what I know: The GOP’s 2016 presidential nominee will be more conservative than ever, and have a heck of a time winning the Electoral College.
Recently, I attended a political event where about 400 conservative Republicans gathered to hear an impressive parade of conservative congressman, governors, and senators.
As I was chatting with a man in his mid-30s, the conversation turned to the 2016 presidential race. When I asked him who he was supporting as the Republican nominee, his answer was Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Then I was prompted to ask the question I ask every Republican after they tell me their preferred candidate: “Do you think Rand Paul can win 270 electoral votes?” The man immediately replied, “I never thought about that.”
