Yesterday, in RAND PAUL BANISHED TO THE KIDDIES TABLE. THE LIBERTARIAN MOMENT PASSED WITH THEIR GAY MARRIAGE AND LEGAL POT VICTORIES, I showed you the many reasons Rand Paul would make a bad president at this time in his life. Besides, it is so unlikely that Paul would have the right appeal to entice white, no college degree Americans into voting booths much less vote for him.
Rand Paul continues to whine about his exclusion for the upcoming Republican Party debate. In fairness, there is a ring of truth to his whining.
Most of the candidates are not wanted by likely voters. So many of the candidates should either get banished to the Kiddies Table or quit the race.

For all of the continual bashing of Americans by news media intelligentsia and foreigners, Americans have good common sense. Their common sense tells them none of these candidates would make for good presidents or even have a shot at beating Hillary Clinton should she win the Dems nomination. For why none of these under 10% candidates could beat Hillary, check out NO ORDINARY WHITE GUY COULD EVER HOPE TO WIN THE U.S. PRESIDENCY IN 2016 AND MAYBE NEVER AGAIN. THE GOP WILL BE OVER SOON ENOUGH.
Americans know when products are shoddy. Americans know when music sounds flat. Instinctively, Americans know when others lack verve, strength and cunning intellect to be leaders.
Here are the latest nationwide polls used to calculate the averages.
