April Primary Survey: Polls are now open

posted at 1:30 pm on April 3, 2011 by

As promised last month, I’ve removed Chris Christie and Paul Ryan from the Presidential line due to their stated disinterest in running. I’ve removed Jim Demint, since he’s removed himself from running, as well. Because he has indicated an interest in running, I have added Rand Paul; if Paul supporters try to cheat as they notoriously do for his father Ron, I will remove Rand from subsequent polls.

I’ve also removed Mike Huckabee from contention. It may seem counterintuitive to cite this in support, but if Fox knows which of its contributors are — to put in Mr. Huckabee’s words — “very much considering another run at the Presidency,” I’ll simply take the network at its word and judge its inaction here as a definitive indicator that Mr. Huckabee, despite his public pronouncements, won’t be running. He’ll be returned to the list if he declares or if Fox puts him on leave.

Update: Huckabee has been returned to the list, per request. I think the paragraph above summarizes my own personal position succinctly, but like-minded people can disagree, and returning Huck to the pool of presidential contenders certainly isn’t an absurd proposition. Indeed, my position is likely the minority one. Polls remain open!
