Finally, we saw a Republican Presidential Debate, hosted by the Fox Business Channel, that was in the interest of the American people. In fact, the real winner of the Debate was the American People because we saw substantive questions about the Economy and definitive answers by many of the candidates. Specific to the Candidates that won this Debate, the order would be Cruz, Rubio, Trump and Fiorina. Trump's message is simple, Make America Great Again, which resonates. Cruz, Rubio and Fiorina did best on the issues important to the Conservative Base of the Republican Party, critical to winning the nomination.
Ben Carson's performance was lackluster; but not completely damaging. Rand Paul does not understand that the base of the Republican Party supports a strong military. Paul comes off as weak on Defense, which is the reason he will not be the nominee. Finally, Jeb Bush and John Kasich, both Establishment Republicans, just don't get it. Neither of them understands the anger and disgust Conservative Republicans feel for RINOS and the Federal Government. We don't want to "fix it" Bush's slogan. We want to dismantle it by pushing back 100 years of Socialist Creep to take our country back and prevent the bankruptcy of the United States. Neither Bush, nor Kasich will be on the Republican Ticket. It is not going to happen.
So, this Blogger predicts that this race is between Trump, Rubio, Cruz and perhaps Carson. Fiorina will not have the money to go the whole way to the last primaries in June. So, even though this Blogger likes Carly Fiorina, though she may end up in a Republican Administration, she will not be on the ticket; particularly if Cruz, Rubio or Carson is on the ticket. Shortly, we will see more Republican Candidates fall by the wayside. Those candidates will simply run out of money, perhaps even before the first primary in Iowa. We are getting down to the top four Republican Candidates and all of them can beat Hillary Clinton.
