Choices

Login to vote in this poll.

Cruz 2016

If this site is about conservatism I find it incredible that members stand by Trump and Kasich - clearly both these men are no where near conservative in anything they do, well to be honest Kasich has done some conservative things in his past - for those leaning to Trump, please tell me where you find his "conservative" roots in anything from his past to his current prose - he is at best a typical RINO - hope all are well, peace

Liberal Trolls Pounce

It's not that the membership here isn't conservative, but rather that supporters of Trump and Kasich swing by occasionally to skew the results - that is why you'll see Ted do well at first, and then the lesser candidates start to catch up - the regulars get in early!

Ted Cruz

You are probably right because the entire election is rigged!!! It is not the people's choice, but the delegates! Now even the RNP is taking sides and trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming President, because they cannot control him!!! It is time for someone to get into office that cannot be controlled and will do the right things by this country!! I think Donald Trump is the person to do it. No one is totally all powerful, except Obama, as everyone in Congress is afraid of him. The fact that Hillary Clinton can even run for president is a total disgrace as she should be prosecuted for the many things she has done wrong!! ie, Stealing Money, the Bengazi disaster, taking funds from countries through the Clinton Foundation to enrich themselves, and gain support from our enemies!!
Is this still America? I hope so and I want her back!!!!

No-one has stolen delegates fron Trump

Donald Trump has gotten 46% of the delegates with only 37% of the vote. He never complains about the election being rigged when he wins all the delegates in a state even though 67% of the people voted against him. This has been our system for hundreds of years. If Trump and his supporters cannot organize themselves to get out and do the hard leg work it takes to become delegates, how will he organize things as President? He won't. He is lazy and has had everything handed to him, because he is a trust fund baby. He now says he wants men to be able to go into the bathroom with little girls, and he says he will raise taxes, and wants to change the GOP platform on abortion. Trump is not a Republican. He is a spoiled bully, who only believes in himself. If he gets the nomination he will lose badly to Hilary. More importantly he will show all the people who foolishly believed his promises, that he has no intention of keeping any of them. Trump cannot be trusted,. He is a mediocre businessman, who is going to have to testify in court against the Trump University Fraud suit. He has surrounded himself with incompetent people and been too cheap to spend money on advertising. No-one has stolen anything from Trump. He is using his whining, as all bullies do, to distract from the real questions. He has no solutions for the deficit, unemployment, and ISIS. He has no answers , so he whines to distract from his shortcomings. Never Trump.

Ted Cruz

Ted is the ONLY candidate that can become president

Agree Cruz 2016

I'm re-posting this because my original seems to have disappeared.

I agree with Ted Cruz being the ONLY candidate. All this talk about Trump making everything right again is total nonsense. The man said he could become whatever he needs to become to accomplish his goal. He is saying whatever he needs to, but his actions speak louder than words. For over 40 years, he financially supported liberal Democrats; the very people conservatives detest, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, etc. And his excuse it was for business is telling. Oh, so you are into bribing politicians; isn't that the crux of the problem!? Now all of a sudden he needs the conservative vote, so voila, he is a conservative. Nonsense! The actions have to match the talk or the talk is untrue. My goodness, he first said he was for grown men being able to use women's restrooms if they feel like it and then, he flip-flopped and said it is a state's issue. But, he did not retract his original statement. If you think Trump is a conservative, you are being played big time. Trump has read the Bible about as much as he has read the Constitution. He does not have any clue about either document. He has no principles except one, putting money into HIS pocket. The only way we restore our Country is to bring it back to limited rule according to the Constitution. We have been taken so far from Constitutional-rule and that is the problem! Cruz is the ONLY one who will restore that.

My comment of agreement is to Ted Cruz is the ONLY candidate to be President, not to Timothy...'s comment.

no to TPP

I READ THIS PIECE CORROSIVE LEGISLATION, AND DECIDED MY CONSERVATIVE PARTY IS ANYTHING BUT. The TPP is far worse than NAFTA ever did against American citizens, destroying manufacturing jobs, nation wide. TPP Gives international consortiums power over our constitutional,congress, and litigation-proof power. If there is intelligent Americans able to read after the agenda 21 dumbing down of high school graduates, please, folks read the full TPP TOME..

The Prez

LET'S GIVE THE DONALD A CHANCE........HE JUST MIGHT CHOOSE A SUPER VP AND GET SOMETHING DONE FOR A CHANGE. I'M HOPING HE'LL CHOOSE SOMEONE WITH AWESOME MILITARY BACKGROUND FOR STARTERS -- THEN WE'LL BLAST THE BAD GUYS FIRST, AND START OUR ECONOMY TO GROW BACK TO WHERE IT WAS SOOOO LONG AGO; CHANGE THE HORRIBLE "OBAMACARE" AND AWAY WE GO!!!!

This week's straw poll

Trump all the way. I don't feel like he's the least destructive. I feel he's the best choice. Ted Cruz has too many ties to "business as usual" with his family ties to the NWO. The RNC needs to stop trying to stop him as they have been and let the process play out without interference. While some cry he will be a disaster for the country, those of us who are voting Trump see him as the destruction of DC corruption and that corruption needs to end now. Our votes will not just go to get him elected but also to vote out those we feel are corrupt in Congress. This is not a good year to be telling the people we are stupid and uneducated or to sit down and shut up. It's also not a good year to tell us that if he wins the election you will begin the impeachment process on day 2 of his term. 88% of congress is up for reelection this year and we do know how to use the ballots and those using the electronic machines will be watching to assure the person we vote for is the one coming up on the ballots. We've had enough of rigged voting machines, dead people voting, people voting multiple time and all the other cheating that has gone on.

The GOP had it's chance to show us the people came first. We did our part and we voted in a majority in the senate and you did not keep your promises. Several Constitutional lawyers have listed the many things Obama has done over the past 7 1/2 years, and the list is long, that gave you all that was needed to impeach him and you didn't even try. You made empty promises on many things and didn't follow through or even try. You claim he isn't truly conservative. You all need to take an honest look in the mirror and you will see you aren't either. The GOP has become the party of themselves and not of the people in the party. We were paying attention or you would not hold a majority in both chambers. We continued to watch as you caved to Obama on everything and have watched the debt continue to climb. You have shown us that you are no different than the democratic party and are continuing us on the same road to destruction we've been on.

I don't believe for a minute as I watched in my state in 2012 that Romney sudden lost through electoral votes at the end of the election process when he was way ahead of Obama, and suddenly within 10 minutes he lost and Obama got my state. Romney wasn't my choice but I voted for my party. I won't do that again. I will vote my choice. Period. I'm on a page of well over 7 millions others who will too. We don't trust you, we don't trust your choices, we don't trust this process and we certainly don't trust the electoral college. We trusted you for far too long and without the RIGHT change, which is not Obama's version, our families have no future. Their future is being spent by the government.

Why Trump? And...where are the REAL Republicans?

Trump, thus far, has displayed remarkable allegiance to America and Americans addressing concerns for Veterans and for our downed economy and failed trades overseas as well as the many wars that have been underway since Obama took power. It is disparaging to say the least how the Republicans, though, in CONGRESS have gone belly-up on this country in this election year. Except for a FEW BRAVE REPUBLICANS and we all know who they are, otherwise, they've been rather silent or even antagonistic towards pulling our country together. It has been divided for a long time and there is GREAT ANGER out there over the job losses, lowered educational standards, the force-fed Islamization by Obama, the open borders, the radical Islamic terrorist attacks on our soil, the many deaths of innocents by radical Islam (a term one cannot use because of one born into, learned and supportive of this ideology-the one named Obama). There is just so much a nation can take in the form of abuse by what is now termed a rogue president! Many good people have "mysteriously perished" under the Obama terms due to "offending this man" and so many in his administration have gotten away with literal murder including him. IF WE DON'T HAVE REPUBLICANS TO DEFEND THIS NATION, OUR AMERICAN PEOPLE, THEN WHO DO WE HAVE? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICAN PRIDE BY REPUBLICANS-IS IT SOMETHING THEY ARE "AFRAID TO SHOW" BECAUSE OF THREATS BY THIS 44TH ADMINISTRATION? IS IT GREED TOO, LIKE THE PROGRESSIVES? WHAT IS IT? ALL I KNOW IS THAT IF REPUBLICANS EN MASS WILL not step up to the plate and be counted for the American people, THEN THEY TOO MUST BE VOTED OR THROWN OUT. IT'S ENOUGH THAT WE HAVE A TOTALLY UN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT AND ADMINISTRATION, WE DON'T NEED THE REPUBLICANS TO GO ALONG WITH THE BAD GUYS! Trump is the only one running, besides Cruz, (forget Kasich-he's funded by Soros!), that shows he really does care for this country and Lord knows we need a George Patton right now! WHY HASN'T THE "ELECTION FRAUD" BY HILLARY CLINTON, BEEN STOPPED? Oh yes, lest I forget...EXACTLY WHY DID OBAMA PUT MILITARY PERSONNEL IN VARIOUS STATES TO SHOOT AND KILL AMERICANS (UNDER JADE HELM 15) INCASE THERE IS AN UPRISING AGAINST THIS PARTICULAR PRESIDENT TOWARDS THE END OF HIS 8 YEAS IN OFFICE?!

Hillary must be defeated at

Hillary must be defeated at all costs. Trump is best suited to take her down. Cruise can't do it and Kasich is a closet Democrat supported by George Soros.

Only Trump!!u

Only Trump!!u

Platform

The trouble with the Republican Platform is that it is not what the majority of the voters want, they have lost touch with the voters and only work to do what the big money supporters want, even when it is not in the best interest of the United States

reply to Platform - majority of voters.

Platform says that the Republican Platform is not what the majority of the voters want.
*
So how do you explain that the majority of the voters in the republican party have actually voted against donald trump? Here is the problem with this election cycle. Add up all the votes for the 17 candidates and you will see that trump does not have the majority vote. That is slowly changing due to the northern states now entering the fray. Take away the cross over votes and the independents who were allowed to vote in some republican states and his numbers are even less,
*
The democrats have for years been telling the American people that immigration is a republican issue. In reality it is an American problem that both sides are concerned with. As a life long registered democrat who has never voted for a democratic presidential candidate I have stood against this non-sense of allowing millions upon millions of immigrants both legal and illegal to come to this country without assimilation or the real desire to become Americans.
*
The problem that people have with trump is that he has been on every side of every issue, that he has been part of the buying politicians for years and suddenly he is against it. The list could go on, but only time will tell if he is elected how much he will do what he claimed he would do.

Platform

Get it clearly,people. I have been a lifetime "Democrat" who recently switched parties during the New York primary, just to vote for "Trump"! What else need I say??? Am tired of the "pathetic" situation our country has been in, am tired of people coming here "illegaly" then making all kinds of demands in our streets and from the government, and been allowed to steal our jobs, been allowed to vote, been allowed to go to school and college for "free",( Yet I just finished paying for my student loan from over 30 yrs ago!) to have medicaid and food stamps, been allowed to have a driving license and all of the other "catastrophes" that are going on in this country and need and "must" be "STOPPED" before we go totally under and become a "THIRD WORLD COUNTRY"! We should be making "Citizens' arrests" and calling the "Feds" on all of these people, and flying our country's flag only! And getting our country back!!! We the "Silent Majority" Have been silent for far too long! Everybody and his brother who come here from other countries go marching to Washington,D.C. and throughout our country. When was the last time you've seen a "natural" borned American, march and or protest? Not since the 60's against the Vietnam War, Far too long!!!! Wake UP America!!!! "Am Mad As Hell, And am not going to take it anymore"!!!!

I'm glad you can finally see

I'm glad you can finally see the truth! Welcome to the NEW Republican party

Have you actually read the platform?

The platform is assembled from suggestions and petitions from every preceint that are discussed and voted on at every county, district, and state convention before being adopted by the National Party. In truth, the DC cartel cares nothing about it.

The Platform is fine - it's failure to implement it

If the GOPe had the courage to stand for their platform, and to kick out elected members who did not adhere to it, you'd find the majority of voters would be very happy.
When you declare what your principles are, and then prove that you don't care about them - THAT is when the voters get angry.

2016 election

This is the first time in my history of voting that I'm voting for the least offensive candidate rather than the best candidate. Sad commentary for the state of affairs in the USA.

2016

Well, don't keep it such a secret who do you believe is the least offensive candidate and who do you believe would be the best candidate?
