And Obama got elected / re-elected because of the wonderful job he was doing? It is clear at least to me that the dems could elect a wooden puppet using their embedded 47% base along with the minority vote. The wealthy and upper middle class who live on their own money would be more inclined to vote GOP. The bottom dwellers up to the increasing lower middle class want the socialized plan the Dems push. The elderly is a growing age demographic and any party that talks about decreasing Medicare and Social Security won't be getting their vote. If the GOP wants to win in 16 they will need a superman to step forward and win over the people who have become disenfranchised with the modern day GOP. The bottom has grown and the GOP has at least for the time being lost them.
I agree. After the beatdown the GOP took in the last election, its clear that Hillary (if she decides to run) can win in 2016.

Perhaps the republican candidate will have somebody like Axelrod to help out. They certainly need to do something different in 2016!

This conversation/thread implies that elections are still relevant.

I hope you are showing your age and not ignorance. If Clinton had not ran out of time, in his last term, he would have been removed by impeachment. He was disbarred for perjury, no way he would have had a chance. Besides, he did not leave office with very high marks. Heck he is what gave the GOP the majority . But hey, he is the Demos greatest, sex offender and convicted perjure.

I'm not sure I follow your logic. Hillary was behind to Obama in the primary when less money and resources were expended and then suspended her campaign (dropped out) in June of 2008.

When Hillary suspended her campaign, she had approximately 46% of the pledged delegates and estimated super delegates versus Obama's approximately 54%. John Edwards had less than 1% (4.5 delegates) and there were less than 100 delegates uncommitted or unable to be estimated.

Although a primary is certainly not a general election, I think it is fair to say that Hillary did not enjoy the same support as Obama and likely does not enjoy it now (obviously after Benghazi, etc.).

Romney lost to Obama in the general election by 50.6% to 47.8% in 2012. Yes, election turnout was lower in 2012 than 2008 and there is a certain element of apples to oranges comparison in both of our "predictions" but I don't see anything in your quoted "evidence" to suggest that it is clear that Hillary would win in 2016 (it certainly won't be Romney running against her). I think even Hillary would say your prediction is premature.

I use Hillary just as an example, really. I think she or any other dem will win the 2016 election unless the republicans pave a road to success by making significant changes in their campaign strategy.

Thats funny cal, and possibly true, depending of course how you see things. Although, the reality of my statement is of course a true fact, according to polls and media, and neighbors in my parts, also with election results, ect. ect.

But I'll tell you what, I've got a sawbuck that says Lindsey Graham takes a shot at it. I've heard some say he's being more outspoken because he has an election in '14, but I think he's pretty safe being re-elected Senator from S.C. Nope, I think he's going to make a run in '16 for POTUS.
