2016 Presidential candidates

The last few times I've attempted to vote, the voting results are shown but the option to vote has been removed. Yes, I signed in.
I'm also curious about why at CPAC, Richard Viguerie said CHQ supports Rand Paul when Sarah Palin has won every CHQ poll taken. He even said Palin's name was removed from the poll because she wasn't receiving enough votes! Am I misunderstanding something??

Poll

A separate CHQ Straw Poll was held at the CHQ booth at CPAC. That's the one Viguerie was talking about. It seems that not all Internet browsers work with this site.

Viguerie's straw poll

I don't know how you guy's get to vote. I log in, but the button next to the names never appears. What am I doing wrong?

Republican Nominee

I voted for Scott Walker because he's been in the trenches fighting and beating the Dems at their own game for over three years! They know and fear his capabilities and he's got good national recognition. He's got solid Conservative ideals and he's proven not to bend with change.

Sarah, Our Sarah

When I was a boy in the 1930’s I listened on the radio to a program called “Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy.” Oh how I miss such inspiration today!

But wait! We do have the female equivalent – a beautiful girl who thinks like a man but who looks and acts like the real woman she is – if most of you would only open your eyes and your minds.

We have Sarah Palin who has never fit the description of a career politician because she isn’t one... and she’s no hippo.

Wake-up, all you people to a real American who put a government jet on e-bay and can also dress-down a moose – God love her.

She’s the female equivalent of the “Rough Rider,” Teddy Roosevelt, that Americans admired enough to carve his likeness onto Mt. Rushmore.

Sarah is the only leader who would make the bold decisions necessary to restore our Constitution to our Founder’s original ideals.

My vote!

I vote for Ted Cruz each time and I like most all of the Tea Party candidates. We need desperately to get rid of McConnell, McCain, Jeff Sessions, and many more of the "establishment" Republicans!!! They have been in office way too long and it's time to put them out to pasture!!! I HATE this stupid word verification. I'm 70 yrs old & I hardly ever get it right. Surely there's a better way!!!

Ineligible Cruz is Distorting the Poll - Gt Him Out of There!

Ted Cruz does not belong in this poll - get him out!

ted cruz, out?

Only if he's in a separate, 'high-graded' poll!

LOL!

Ineligible Cruz...

What IS your problem?? Ted Cruz is a top human being and most definitely eligible - and just to verify: he is an American citizen.

Ted Cruz ought to be Prez, but ...

Sorry, he's not native-born. He's got less legal right to run than Obama did.

Cruz

NATURAL born

Cruz Eligibility

Ted Cruz is ineligible to be President for the same reason Obama and Rubio are not eligible. One or more of Cruz' parents (father) was not an American citizen at the time of his birth.
To be a natural born citizen, both parents must be American citizens at the time of birth. This was the accepted definition in the world at the time the Constitution was written. The reason for this requirement is so that it is unlikely a President could hold secret allegiance to another nation due to a parent's foreign nationality.

Cruz Eligibility

You are absolutely correct. He is not natural born.

Ted Cruz is INELIGIBLE.

How can somebody with 2 citizenships be eligible?

Sarah, America’s Acknowledged Sweetheart

Who in his right mind wants another typical career politician for president?

02/11/14 - VIDEO: Happy 50th Birthday Sarah Palin

Sarah’s character and appeal is unquestionable.

Pray that she comes riding in, bugle blowing, like the cavalry at the last minute to save our country from those who never learned what it means to be an American.

(VIDEO may not work)

RUN PALIN

Hillary is easy to beat!

Beat her with ObamaCare which is just a rewording of HillaryCare. Beat her with the Russian “reset” which she mistranslated. Her State Department chose, "peregruzka", which means "overloaded" or "overcharged," rather than "reset." This is symbolic of the Hillary foreign policy. Beat her with Benghazi. Every pro-Hillary ad should be followed by the 10 second clip of a strident Hillary shrilly screaming, “At this point, what difference does it make?” Then tell her.

Beat her with a girl. Any criticism of Hillary by a male will be seen as beating up on a girl. Get a Reaganesque, conservative, small-government, balanced-budget WOMAN to challenge Hillary’s coronation. The best one on the scene is Gov. Sarah Palin. She is the most Reaganesque potential candidate we have. She is a rock star. There are no empty seats at her events. WE MUST CONVINCE HER TO RUN!

America needs lipstick tenacity in 2016

It’s hard for me to imagine so many people are unable to see what is in Sarah Palin’s heart and soul. She doesn’t need to get her message in front of the public -- her entire life is an open book.

We just need to pray Sarah will throw her hat in the ring at the last minute to save us from perhaps another moderate candidate who can’t wait to demonstrate his willingness to be bi-partisan, or perhaps a libertarian who believes evil regimes have feelings.

America needs lipstick tenacity in 2016

I sooo agree with you. Her life IS an open book. Her time has come!!!

Depends on the Democrat Candidate

If Hillary Clinton gets the go ahead, Sara Palin would be an excellent choice. Otherwise I'd go with any of the top men in the CHQ Poll. Added comment: The quality of Republican candidates is far superior to any the Democrats might be considering.

Depending on Democrats?!

Why not just settle on the man or woman with the demonstrated loyalty to the principles of our Founding and determined reliance on the tenets of our Constitution? I think rather than trying gimmicks like countering the irrational whims of leading Democrats, we should show Americans that we are the Party of Principle - quit trying to play them and simply make and win the argument for fiscal responsibiliy, the rule of law, integrity of our borders - whether at Mexico or our international airports - and above all our privacy and LIBERTY! I think most voting Americans want THIS from the Republican Party. They wanted it with Reagan (did you realize that 40% of union members voted for Reagan?) and we need it far more now than we did in 1979. Let's just find the best person whose words and actions and voting record bear out the message of our Founding.

change to polls

I think if you were able to adjust these polls to allow us to register a first, second, and third choice, or to actually rank all of the candidates in order of preference, then you and we both could get a lot clearer picture of our preferences.

Agreed

But it will be hard to bump Sarah from her pre-eminent position, no matter how the votes are counted, unless it's by Diebold.
