          How do you define "pull the trigger"?
          Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

              Actually declare themselves to be a candidate for President. Which is why Sen Cruz and Sen Rubio are not on the list.

                Rick Perry. He found out last time he's not able to operate at the national level.
                Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  Remember the poll is multiselect, not limited to one single vote.

                    You forgot George Pataki, the modern Harold Stassen. Pataki says he is going to run every four years but never actually does so. That said I think he would be a fine, moderate choice if he actually did run.

                      Oh, we could add dozens more if we go that route, I kept the silly choices to just one, Donald "The Hair" Trump.

                        Interesting that John Kasich is not on the list. Has he outright said no?

                          I wanted to keep the list manageable. Picked the ones that had made more comments about running and that had done some traveling in support of that talk.

                            Looks like you should've added the option of selecting "other" likely GOP candidate.

                              And then there's Democrat candidates most likely to say "Pull my finger!"
