So long Chris! So long Carly! Yup, as predicted Chris Christie of New Jersey and Carly Fiorina of Hewlett Packard have dropped out the race. For some reason Ben Carson is still hanging in there, perhaps because he has polled strongly in one or two states and wants his moment in the sun. Also, having been a front runner a while back, its probably difficult to throw in the towel, even when it is obvious you should do so.
For those who didn’t catch it before, here’s the clip from the debates that Paul and I discussed:
Voters in New Hampshire today are making their choice as to whom shall take all the media attention, at least until the South Carolina Primary on the 20th. Yup, big stakes at play. So far it looks like Trump is going to win, but all the attention is on which Republican candidate can take second place. Will Rubio sustain his Iowa momentum?
Well this wee blog is calling for one candidate to hold in there: Jeb Bush. Yes, by simply being mild-mannered and a bit pathetic, Jeb Bush has claimed our pity vote in much the same way that that nice grey bloke, John Major managed to. So hang in there, Jeb! Don’t let those appalling poll ratings deter you! This election needs a quiet, compromising, bland, middling figure and you’re just the guy to do it!
