    • former MN Gov. Tim Pawlenty
    • Former PA Sen. Rick Santorum
    • Texas Rep. Ron Paul
    • former NM Gov. Gary Johnson
    • businessman Herman Cain

    • Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty officially announced his candidacy for president Monday in Iowa, kicking off his "truth" campaign:
      • "In my campaign, I'm going to take a different approach. I am going to tell you the truth. The truth is Washington D.C.'s broken.”
      • "It's time for new leadership. It's time for a new approach. And, it's time for America's president - and anyone who wants to be president - to look you in the eye and tell you the truth."

    Assessing Debate #2Washington Post


    • Michele Bachmann: For viewers who had never heard of the Minnesota Congresswoman before tonight, she put on quite a show. For the first 45 minutes of the debate, Bachmann dominated the stage with quotable lines galore. What Bachmann proved tonight? She’s ready for primetime.
    • Mitt Romney: Romney came into the debate as the frontrunner in New Hampshire and nationally and he did nothing in the 120 minutes on stage at Saint Anselm College to change that. Romney was serious and well informed — in a word: presidential. His debate experience from 2008 clearly paid off.


    • Tim Pawlenty: Pawlenty came into the debate with perhaps the biggest challenge: to prove that the insider buzz he has been generating of late could be translated to a public forum. He had moments where he shined — his answer on the separation of church and state was outstanding — but by and large he came across as a bit over-programmed.
    • Herman Cain: After winning the first debate of the year in South Carolina, expectations were high for the Georgia businessman. But Cain’s answer on whether he would have a Muslim in his Cabinet was confusing at best and offensive at worst and will be, without question, the memorable moment of the debate for him.

    Santorum on Perry: ‘We’re not in Texas, anymore’(August 17, 2011)

    Former PA Sen. Rick Santorum blasted his fellow GOP presidential candidate Tuesday.

    • Perry has already “stepped on it a couple times” since entering the race Saturday.
    • The governor's comments about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke were “completely out of bounds.”“We don’t charge people with treason because we disagree with them on public policy,” Santorum said. “You don’t up the ante to that type of rhetoric. It’s out of place.”

    the media primary
    The Media Primary
    • Rick Perry received the most favorable coverage of any candidate for president during the first five months of the race, but now Herman Cain is enjoying that distinction.
    • Perry lost the mantle of the candidate enjoying the most favorable treatment to Herman Cain two weeks ago, after the Florida straw poll.
    • Though he has often led in the polls, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has received less coverage and less positive coverage than the shifting casts of frontrunners

    One man running for president has suffered the most unrelentingly negative treatment of all:

    Barack Obama.

    • One consistent dividing line in all four polls is attitudes toward the tea party. In each of the states except New Hampshire, Romney polls higher among voters who are neutral or opposed to the tea party than those who say they support it. Herman Cain, in mirror image, polls substantially better among tea party supporters in all four states.

    Hawkeye Poll: Romney could face Mormon hurdle in general election
    • A University of Iowa Hawkeye Poll found that nearly 70 percent of respondents who said they were "very likely" and "somewhat likely" to attend the caucus agreed with the statement "I would vote for a Mormon to become president of the United States."
    • But overall, Iowa Republicans are much less supportive of a Mormon president (41 percent), suggesting that if Romney secures the Republican nomination his faith may be a greater deterrent for general election voters than for caucus participants.

    GOP Insiders Near-Unanimous in Predicting Romney Nomination

    The large Republican presidential field, along with the dramatic surges and collapses of several of its candidates, may ultimately be much ado about nothing. That, at least, is the conclusion of the Republican strategists surveyed in this week's National Journal Political Insiders Poll, who almost unanimously identified Mitt Romney as the most likely candidate to win the nomination.

    democratic insiders meanwhile largely believe

    Democratic Insiders, meanwhile, largely believe Republicans are on the right track, with more than two-thirds of them naming Romney as the strongest candidate the GOP could nominate for the 2012 election.
