Paul, Tancredo and Hunter Not Likely CP Candidates

Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter are all seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency. They are all also included in a presidential election poll on the Constitution Party web site, http://www.constitutionparty.com/.

Paul is currently leading with 45% in that poll as the first choice candidate for the Constitution Party nomination. Tancredo is in second 21% and just 5% are in favor of Hunter.

What is the reality that one of these men will become the next CP nominee? I believe there is none. Yesterday on my show the Louisiana CP contact Trent Hill said that not of these these men are currently interested in a Constitution Party run but, their is still a slim possibility that one of them may.

However, Hunter probably is the least likely to make a third party run since his son is planning on running as a Republican to replace his father in congress.

Whoa whoa. I'm not saying none.

Im saying little to none.

I DID say that Duncan Hunter is retiring from Congress...and this would be a good way to go out with a bang.
I also said Ron Paul HAS talked to some CP officials.
And I said Tancredo is at odds with his own party, including a screaming match with Karl Rove.

However, none of them are very likely. I'd say 0-.01% chance.

I have made some changes in the article.

I didn't mean to change what you said.

So why can't the Constitution Party get behind Paul or Tancredo and not run their own candidates?

Ron Paul, the anti-war, pro-legalize-everything, pro-abortion libertarian should seek the CP nomination?

Are you smoking what he's smoking?
