The Republican dilemma | Jordan Times

By James J. Zogby.

Over the past few weeks, the Republican presidential primary contest has become more confusing and, for some in the GOP, disheartening.

For months now, the rather lacklustre field of 10 or so announced Republican candidates has been raising money, hiring staff, and campaigning vigorously in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina – sites of some of the earliest contests in the 2012 presidential nominating contest.

I say lacklustre, advisedly, since polls show that less than one-quarter of Republicans are actually satisfied with this collection of candidates. As a result, not a week goes by without some other name being floated as a potential “saviour” who, it is hoped, will rescue the party, leading it to victory.
