Normally I don’t watch trends however my curiosity left me with this question…
Was the field this narrow in 2008? Candidates are dropping fast.
In 2008 the field had a total of 10, with 6 that the media gave the most attention to. John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, Ron Paul, and Rudy Giuliani.
The Race is still on, wide open. Newt got more than McCain did in ’08, Hell, Romney got more this year than McCain did in ’08. Ron Paul got a 10% jump and would’ve been 3rd in ‘o8.
And here I was wondering if it was going to be over too fast.
