John Hawkins of Right Wing News recently did another poll of Conservative Bloggers regarding who they would like to see be the 2016 nominee.
Marco Rubio won pretty much every question, regardless of how it was worded. (Rand Paul was a close second)
But, what we know of the GOP establishment is that now Marco Rubio won't even be considered if it's who we want. Nor will Rand. They're too young and haven't previously been beat out for the nomination. That's how they roll. Or stagnate as it were.
This was the most interesting observation from Hawkins' poll (and previous polls):
"As a side note, want to see something scary?
In 2008, the least wanted candidates for bloggers were…John McCain and Ron Paul.
In 2012, the least wanted candidates for bloggers were…Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
So, going by those results, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush would have to be considered the early favorites for 2016 based on the fact that conservative bloggers don’t want either of them as a nominee."

Shall we dispense with the formalities and just assume Hillary will win in 2016?
