2016 GOP Presidential Poll - Can You Guess Who's Not Listed?

Townhall has a 2016 GOP presidential poll with 17 candidates plus write-in. Currently, with over 158,000 votes, write-in is in the lead.
Can you guess the last name of a prominent potential candidate that is not listed? Whether you think he is the equal of his father or not, said candidate is apparently going to get the same treatment. I wonder if it will be revealed whom all the write-in votes were for.

If you'd like to vote here's the link:

I'm not a political scientist

I'm not a political scientist or media analyst, but from my perspective, it will be much harder to ignore, ostracize, etc. Rand than it was his father...Most importantly because of the mass-appeal the [ron paul, liberty, independent, whatever] movement has gained, but also the seriousness of his candidacy...He's the front-runner in some major polls while Ron never really was...he did well...but wasn't on top. Last - Rand seems to have gained favor amongst many more establishment voters than Ron could, being more of a "politician".....Just my two cents

LOL, sold out his own Father,

LOL, sold out his own Father, sold his soul to the devil and the devil spit in his eye. It all comes back around sometimes don't it? Meanwhile it's the republicans who are against legalizing marijuana. Seems to me the only thing the republicans have left are ignoramuses and the war people.

What justice, if you don't learn from this you never will learn anything.

This is a ridiculous statement and childish

All of the people that think that Rand "sold out his father" are seriously out of you're minds. Armchair political pundits do not trump a father and son relationship...one in which they are both in politics. I seriously can't believe that there is a swath of people that think that Rand has somehow against his pop. If you do, you need to grow the f up.

using your logic, who did ron

using your logic, who did ron paul sell out to deserve to get treated the way he did?

The way he was treated was and asset.

Many people saw the way he was treated and it made them question the media and the system. If the media had treated him better he still wouldn't have won because too many have been brainwashed for far too long. But it did show the reality to a new generation. I know because I talk to many of them frequently.
We have it all recorded, all proof, and we can show it over and over to all that are able to see.

We know what

to do with this poll. Write Rand in and forward to our friends.

Wow. Townhall did this on purpose

To get your email address on the backside...


They're using our "outrage" as their fuel.

Just ignore it. Or at the very least, use a disposable email address. After all, they're free.

He's the man.

good advice - I noticed

good advice - I noticed there's a write in option and was going to put Paul, but then noticed they want your e-mail...this isn't a poll, it's a ploy to get your info

I agree Jungle

So much talk about things other than America really puzzles me. The Focus ON Issues to avoid principles is becoming obvious to more people like you and I.

Even our departed Granger was on to the idea years ago.

It's sad that she lost that awareness and the respect for the truth she once displayed so proudly.

I feel sad for her, but hold the truth she fought so hard for during the first campaign as my memory of her. People come and go, and we are but humans.

Standing up all we can, when we can for God Given Rights to every individual IS the American Idea.

Sucking email addresses for fake polls shows how much the propaganda has infiltrated our/YOUR mind.


Rand is already wayyy more popular than some poll on a website can impact.

Things are different now. People are fed up. Lots of people ...

Not surprised

Judge Nap is also not there.
Here is another one, open, with geo-distribution and all relevant candidates:


Can't say I am surprised

I can tell Rand Paul is genuine...and it is only a matter of time before he will be blacked out. He has some reach into the mainstream that his father didn't have and it is good that he is becoming popular. However, as the election gets closer, pics of the southern avenger will be everywhere, ron will still be answering questions about newsletters and tied to his son..it will be the same liberal smear campaign that they always drag out when a challenger emerges.

Florida needs help Rubio=20% vs Write In 19%

I don't even know about 4 of these people?

and yet no "in your face" Paul? Unbelievable.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Proof Positive

That is how you know Rand is real, and Cruz is a fake.

Where's Big Mike?

He has the skills to fix this poll, lol

you can vote twice...at least i did

first I voted for Ron.....hope he runs. But as a second choice I vote Rand and changed the zipcode to the one next to mine and it accepted vote.....this has got to be BS. Beside since when did the Republicians care who the voters want in the race.


Maybe yqu'll be quoted on your admission on an opponent's website or the news, as an example of the kind of fair-play Rand Paul and Ron Paul (Daily Paul) supporters exemplify.

For the record, I'm NOT going to vote for Rand in this poll, even though he would be my preference, just in case someone does quote you--they, hopefully, will quote me, too.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Isn't it amazing that people will post things,

ON THIS SITE, hoping to sound so smart, quote BS history and BS economics, and then admit they cheat.

I don't care who sees it as long as this reply is included.

Lol….you two are under

the assumption that anyone on this site is taken seriously.
Base if my history or economics post are BS…..why is you never actually refute any of the information?

Because English isn't your first language, fraud.

That or you failed preschool. So what would be the point of trying to convince you of anything opposite that you wouldn't understand, or opposite what you've been told to post, that "you" believe?


Goldspam: "why is you never actually refute any of the information?"


Why is you only talk about me

but never to me?.....chicken?
Maybe it's bacause you never actually say anything.

And for you Scholers….I vote twice to test the access…..the poles a fraud just like the two of you.

I just talked TO you, retard.

So nice try, Mr. or Ms. "Why is you," "Scholers" & "poles."

ahaahhahahahahahahahahhahahhaha! With all the foreign aid Israel receives from US, they couldn't train you better than that? F the F off.

You looking for me....B I T C H?

What are you base's butt buddy?

No, I wasn't looking for you.

PS. I'm straight.

PPS. F the F off.

It's obvious, you are only here for two reasons.

1) And the BIG ONE is to waste peoples time.
2) You think data you are collecting is going to intimidate people that believe in Christian principles.

Buddy, let me tell you, you have drawn a LOT of attention.


And you are beginning to adapt Grangers mental crash. Your history here is still available. Grangers has been stored. ;)

The Worm ;)

Your history here is still available.


Goldspan, you threaten 'my history' on DP

You attack James Corbett,

You came about when Granger went into crash mode.

You tell me who is winning when it comes to respecting the truth?

Are you here just because people are waking up to the deception you support?

Didn't you think we saw you coming?

America is Tired of putting up with you fucking around with our Christian principles.

And we are tired of you fucking around with Islam and fucking them as well.

Get it?


Oh My, did I say that? And do I care how I'm voted by trolls?


I find it significant that Goldspan POSTS here with the

And I 'have a feeling' that there are a LOT of Goldspans out there, with EXACTLY THE SAME ATTUTUDE, and most likely the same set of fingerprints.

Don't know that for sure, but at some point this all becomes obvious.
