So, since Iowa…

…Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, and Rick Santorum have all dropped out.  Which means that the next debate will either be Bush, Carson, Christie, Cruz, Rubio, and Trump, or Bush, Christie, Cruz, Kasich, Rubio, and Trump.  I’m not sure how they’ll handle the fact that Kasich polls better than Carson in NH while Carson polls better than Kasich nationally.  Mind you, there should be only five people on that stage anyway.

  1. It wouldn’t surprise me to see one of Kasich/Christie/Bush drop before the next debate.

    1. Bush is unlikely to drop out until right before Florida, but I can’t see him staying in for the embarrassment of a fifth place showing there.

      1. Quoth Richard Gere: “I’ve got nowhere else to go!”
        Bush won’t drop out until he is forced to.
        Bush also has a personal vendetta with Rubio. I expect he’d stay in for no other reason than to hurt Rubio.

      2. He might want to, but if you can’t break into the top three by South Carolina/Nevada, anyone who’s in it to win pretty much has no choice but to drop out. There’s just too much on March 1, and no one is going to spend the kind of money it takes to campaign in a dozen states at once if they can’t accomplish anything that way.

      1. All of which were somehow eliminated long before a single vote was cast.
        Because that’s how democracy works.
