I think the only GOP candidates who can actually beat Hillary are Jeb and Christie because they are moderates and have a decent chance of attracting the Latino vote similar to what Jeb did in Florida and W. did in 2000 and 2004. If Rand Paul gets the GOP nomination, I bet the Latinos team up with the Blacks and do the same thing to Rand Paul what they did to McCain and Romney. The Latino and Black numbers are just too great and if they swing 80% - 90% for Hillary, then Hillary is going to be the next Prez, regardless of how likeable Rand Paul is on TV.

QuoteFifty-six percent of Republicans who identify as tea partiers would like to see Paul run in 2016 - the highest percentage of any GOPer asked about in the poll and the only potential contender to reach the 50 percent mark. Just 13 percent of tea party Republicans don't want Paul to run.Still, Paul isn't the only contender tea party Republicans have their eye on. Other potential Republican candidates asked about in the poll are fairly popular: More than four in 10 would like to see former Bush (48 percent), Cruz (43 percent), and Rubio (43 percent) run for president in 2016.

In fact didn't Breitbart say "I am proud to be a teabagger" ? I am proud to be a teabagger says Breitbart

But Bush 41 and Bush 43 and going to be pulling a lot of strings and calling in a lot of favors from big donors in order to help Bush 45. Also Bush 45 has got a good chance of getting a sizeable chunk of the Latino vote because Bush 45's wife is Mexican. He is fluent in Spanish and majored in Hispanic studies at Texas-Austin. Also he was able to get 56% of the Latino vote in Florida whereas McCain and Romney were getting just 25% of the Latino vote. If you give 95% of the Blacks and 80% of the Latinos to Hillary, I don't think that Rand Paul can be competitive. I don't think that the Tea Party nutcases and even moderates like Romney have any idea about how strongly the Latinos want the 11 million illegals to be legalized. Romney made one stupid remark during the debates that he would force the illegals to self-deport. That one remark cost him the election much more than his 47% remark. The Latinos were pissed and come election day, they pissed on Romney.
