Possibly the next president of the United States of America! Vote for your favorite Republican candidate for the 2016 race!
The Top Ten
1 Ben Carson Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson, Sr. is a retired American neurosurgeon and former candidate for President of the United States.

Extremely accomplished politics as usual. Just an American who wants to see our country turn around and become great again. The fact that he has no political background means nothing. He's smart. He knows the Constitution and I've watched numerous talks and interviews with him. He understands the problems facing this country and doesn't just complain, but has plans...and good ones...for how to address all the issues facing our country. Many people regardless of party understand that our government today is way out of hand and backwards from the original by, for, and of the people that was intended. Ben Carson is the people. Not qualified? I disagree. In my opinion, he's the most qualified, not being in this for any sort of personal gain.

2 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Donald J. Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968... read more

The reason most republican candidates have been unpopular in the past years is because of money. Presidential campaigns aren't cheap, so they have to be very careful not to offend anyone in their candidate race, or they may lose key sponsors.

Donald trump doesn't have that problem. He has enough money to fund his own campaign, so he can say whatever the hell he wants. AND PEOPLE LIKE THAT. Trump is one of the few candidates who has the guts to say what's wrong with the country, regardless of who gets "offended" in the process. He's also not a professional politician, so he's cerainly not in it for money.

It's also admirable how trump has stood his ground with the media constantly trying to tear him down. People applaud Carson for not having political experience, but trash trump for it. But does that stop him? No! Trump calls the media biased idiots and keeps on trucking.

He may not be as attractive a personality as Rand Paul or Carson, but trump has the know-how and strong brash stance that this country needs in these tough times.

What else is there to say but "we will make America great again! "

3 Marco Rubio Marco Antonio Rubio is an American politician and attorney, and the junior United States Senator from Florida.

This Fraud CLEARLY wants to pull one over on America & is in big with the RINO Establishment. If, I mean, WHEN Jeb Bush Goes down, they may back Rubio, hoping to foll enough Conservative voters to keep the REAL Conservative candidates out of the GOP nomination. & if Worse comes to worse, they would rather have Rubio in the WH to HELP them bringin all those Illegal Alien Democrat voters to give Dems the PERMANET Majority. This guy is a slick Liar, and Kept on Pushing Amnesty WHILE he was apologizing for his role in Pushing it!

4 Ted Cruz Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz is an American politician and attorney serving as the junior United States Senator from Texas since 2013. He was a candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

Clearly understands we need to secure our borders and states how he'll do it. Understands that his number one job would be to protect the American people. He calls a spade a spade and explains his ideas for correcting our countries problems. He's not wishy washy. Right outta the gate he states the problem, his plan to fix it and how he'll do it. Everyone else tap dances.

Best Choice on ALL Issues. Integrity, Life, Liberty, Freedom of Religion, Marriage, Family, Constitutionally Limited Govt, Peace thru Strength, Free Markets, Less Regulation, Lower Spending, Lower Taxes, Energy, Jobs Opportunity and More. Talks and walks like a fighter & does what he says. There is no other like him.

5 Chris Christie Christopher James "Chris" Christie is an American attorney, politician and member of the Republican Party who served as the 55th Governor of New Jersey. His term ended on January 23, 2018.

This is guy would be a horrible president we would send in the military dozens of times and a majority of times for stupid reasons. He would damage the U. S's reputation. There needs to be a republican in office and the right choice is Rubio.

I can't wait for Hillary to start debating these Republicans. Lies work as long as there is no one there to refute them, but sooner or later you have to face the person you're accusing. We'll see how great he is when he actually has to debate.

VOMIT. This guy is Nearly Last on the List, next to Jeb Bush. a Real Phony who should run on the Democrat ticket. But that is why so many RINO Establishment Elitists like him so much. They know they can get him to serve their purposes, rather than Americans.

6 Rand Paul Randal Howard "Rand" Paul is an American politician and physician. Since 2011, Paul has served in the United States Senate as a member of the Republican Party representing Kentucky.

Seems to me like a big pretentious whiner. He is unique voice in the GOP though...but he'll never gather enough support to win ever. Just like his father...another failed campaign.

One of the most underrated candidates. He's really impressed me over a lot of the things that he's said and proposed.

Not my first choice, or even my second choice, but even this guy is better than any of the Democrat choices.

7 John Kasich John Richard Kasich is an American politician who served as the 69th Governor of Ohio from 2011 to 2019.

Agreed, I have two brothers that are teachers and they don't like this guy at all. People don't realize how hard teachers work, and really how underpaid they are. All I ever hear is how teachers have three months off every year, which is totally untrue. A lot of the people who criticize teachers are the same ones who would be the last to complain about those criminals out in Oregon, who by their own admission can stay there as long as they want. As long as you want? Now THAT is too much vacation!

I welcomed the delivery of his speech this morning. So refreshing. I believe he has the guts and will to bring people together to make America strong. He certainly has the credentials as a successful governor and did help Bill Clinton balance the budget.

8 Carly Fiorina Cara Carleton "Carly" Fiorina is an American businessperson and political candidate, known primarily for her tenure as CEO of Hewlett-Packard.

Actually, I will have to update a comment under Jindal. Your first four may be horrid, but at least they're still in the race. And I don't know how much longer your number one is gonna be around...

Isn't that special? Carly's smiling. I guess she hasn't heard that her Planned Parenthood video makers got hit with felony charges...

Got booted back to the kids' table in the last debate. I thought her shoes looked nice, though, until that house fell on her...

9 Mike Huckabee

Another Big government RINO posing as a Conservative. He demonstrated as a Governor, that he could either be controlled, or that he could be bought, or that he would compromise his Stated values & at any rate sell the Principles down the river. He took the fight - as the FIRST Governor to oppose it - promising to get rid of Common Core in his state. He had the same people working on it, repackaged & renamed it Arkansas standards & called it good with few if any changes. He is a Liar & has been posing, on the talk radio & Cable news circuits, as a conservative, and going to conservative & charitable events to be seen doing good. He will NEVER get my Vote.

10 Jeb Bush John Ellis "Jeb" Bush is an American businessman and politician who served as the 43rd Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007.

I know haha another Bush but he did some great things as governor of Florida and knows what it takes to get the US economy growing again.

If we do elect another Bush, we'd have to elect another Clinton to clean up after the mess he leaves...

Well, one thing he did as governor of Florida was give the presidency to his brother...

The Contenders
11 Rick Perry

There are three reasons Perry won't be president, he has no charisma, he looks ridiculous in his glasses, and--OOPS!

He takes on big government and obama policies, he's experience and is successful I don't think young hopefuls are what we need again

12 Scott Walker

A Koch Brothers puppet who likes to bully unions. His flip flopping on issues doomed his campaign. After one bad poll, he chickened out of the race. Yeah, great guy to have as a President...

How the mighty have fallen. I know a lot of Wisconsin people were hoping he'd win so they could get a new governor.

13 Bobby Jindal Piyush "Bobby" Jindal is an American politician who served as the 55th Governor of Louisiana from 2008 to 2016, a former US Congressman, and former vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association.

He would be great, but the closet-racist Democrats and Liberals simply can't hold back their true feelings about this son of immigrants from India. They do a better job of hiding it when discussing Ben Carson, but they are plainly throwbacks to the Democrat party of the 1960's whenever this competent, accomplished governor is the topic.

This guy dismantled his state budget to the point where even his own party is disavowing him. He left such a calamity behind that Louisiana voted in a DEMOCRAT to replace him...that's right...a Democrat the most conservative state in the nation. That's how bad Jindal was. And you wonder why he get routed in the primaries

14 Condoleezza Rice
15 Mitt Romney Willard Mitt Romney is an American businessman and politician who served as the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and was the Republican Party's nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election.
16 George Pataki

Simply a moderate Republican with no name recognition. Got eaten alive by the Tea Party voters.

17 Herman Cain

Hasn't been running all year. Was a 2012 candidate, but doesn't qualify for this list. Doesn't matter though. The word "top" disqualifies all the other entries, too.

No business running for President. Run for Mayor first & then Governor next & come back with a Record.

18 Rick Santorum

Has now become a private citizen once again, which is the office he has performed best at.

He was yesterday's news. Enough said.

19 Jim Gilmore

He's out officially now. That is, if you ever knew he was in to begin with.

20 Lindsey Graham

Had some decent positions. But I'm sorry, nobody wanted to put boots on the ground in Syria. Not a good platform to run on.

Decent man, actually someone who Democrats could reason with. So, of course, the Repugs got rid of him right away...
