The main Republican contenders are Rudy, John and Mitt. On the Democratic side, they are Hillary, Obama and John. Polls reveal that Democrats are more content with their frontrunners than Republicans are with theirs. However, there are nagging doubts whether any of the three main Democratic contenders can win a general election and serious reservations regarding a Clinton general election run, mostly for that reason. The Republican field is regarded as weak, with no candidate gaining support of the Party’s base. In both races, there is significant intrigue building as to whether other candidates will run. In addition, a third-party candidate could have serious repercussions for the major party nominees and perhaps win more support than any third-party efforts to date in our nation’s history.
