    Well, obviously Tim Pawlenty was found to be the most unelectable. Next to Pawlenty, Gary Johnson is going nowhere. Michelle Bachman, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum aren’t electable either. Rick Perry screwed himself (and his wife is not helping his cause.)

    Realistically, I’m sure Newt Gingrich will not win and that truly is a pity.
