Anybody but Trump '16


Recommended Posts

I recently re-discovered an old friend of mine, the 2016 Republican Delegate Calculator by RCP. You can find it here: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/widgets/2016/delegate_calculator/version4.html

I've decided to go ahead and take a walk down memory lane by simulating a possible turn of events wherein Trump's rise is cut short, but the path to who will succeed him is marred in controversy and confusion.

November 1st, 2015 - National Polling Average

Ben Carson - 25%

Donald Trump - 24%

Carly Fiorina - 10%

Marco Rubio - 9%

Ted Cruz - 7%

Jeb Bush - 6%

Chris Christie - 4%

Mike Huckabee - 3%

Rand Paul - 3%

John Kasich - 2%

Rick Santorum - 2%

Bobby Jindal - 1%


For the first time since he took the lead in late July from then-frontrunner Jeb Bush, Donald Trump is no longer the Republican frontrunner for President of the United States. Having fallen to second place to Dr. Ben Carson in the RCP average, there is much debate regarding whether this finally represents the permanent downfall of the New York businessman, or whether this is merely a statistical anomaly, a blip on the radar. The next Republican debate is scheduled for November 10th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Final placements will be announced next week.

Give me Chris Christie 

I adore your enthusiasm my friend, but I had not intended for this to be a role play, rather a walk through of an alternate 2016 as I imagine it.

However, maybe once I’m done with this project we’ll have time for a good old-fashioned Dobs RP 😊

Fourth GOP Debate - November 10th, 2015

Center-Right: Carson

Center-Left: Trump

1st from Right: Fiorina

1st from Left: Rubio

2nd from Right: Cruz

2nd from Left: Bush

3rd from Right: Christie

3rd from Left: Huckabee


An undercard debate was held also featuring Paul, Kasich, Santorum, and Jindal.


The debate was dominated by the November 2015 Paris terror attacks, which occurred in the days leading up to the debate. Fiorina, Rubio, Cruz, and Bush, capitalized on the attacks by highlighting Carson's perceived inability to discuss the issue intelligently and Trump's perceived isolationism. Fiorina benefited from being perceived as the only of the three leading "outsider" candidates with any real foreign policy experience, while Rubio and Bush benefited from their hawkish positions.

Cruz, less outspokenly hawkish on foreign policy, but incredibly conservative on immigration, benefited from strong rhetoric on immigration, stealing Trump's thunder in many instances. Christie, likewise, was able to bulldoze Trump during several exchanges that seemed straight out of a New York vs. New Jersey housewives reality TV crossover.

Meanwhile, in the undercard debate, Kasich dominated when, on the same issue, Rand Paul was soon as grossly out of touch on the issue of terrorism and foreign policy, and was booed down by the audience.

National Polling - December 1st, 2015

Ted Cruz - 17% (+10)

Carly Fiorina - 16% (+6)

Ben Carson - 14% (-11)

Donald Trump - 13% (-11)

Marco Rubio - 12% (+3)

Jeb Bush - 7% (+1)

Chris Christie - 7% (+3)

John Kasich - 6% (+4)

Mike Huckabee - 1% (-2)

Rand Paul - 1% (-2)

Rick Santorum - 1% (-1)

Bobby Jindal - 1% (-)


The State of the Race

Far from solidifying, the race in December is far more in doubt than it was in November. Carson and Trump have collapsed in support in what the mainstream media are dubbing the great "realization" that the two men could mean devastation for the top of the ticket in November, particularly against a seasoned foreign policy vet like Hillary Clinton. 

Benefiting most from these developments include Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, and Marco Rubio. Cruz has capitalized on support from Christian Conservatives who desire a more experienced pick than Carson, while Rubio and Fiorina both bring in foreign policy hawks. Fiorina's all-star performance at the last debate has proven her, perhaps, the safest of the "outsider" candidates, but it is unclear whether or not the taste for an outsider has soured among the party.

Meanwhile, Christie and Kasich have surged as undercard alternates while Huckabee, Paul, and Santorum seem to have set their campaigns to life support. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is expected to end his campaign before the next debate in Mid-December, joining George Pataki and Lindsey Graham, both of whom failed to make even the November undercard.

Fifth GOP Debate - December 15th, 2015

Las Vegas, Nevada

Center: Ted Cruz

Center-Right: Carly Fiorina

Center-Left: Marco Rubio

2nd from Right: Donald Trump

2nd from Left: Ben Carson

3rd from Right: Jeb Bush

3rd from Left: Chris Christie

4th from Right: John Kasich

4th from Left: Rand Paul


Santorum and Huckabee were not invited due to falling short of the criteria. Paul was a late addition to round out the stage.

This debate featured what many critics identified as "second wind" for Trump, stopping the bleeding in his poll numbers and holding steady at a core 15% of primary voters who, at this point, say they will not vote for anyone else. Meanwhile, newly minted frontrunner Ted Cruz was able to walk away from the debate with his momentum in tact, particularly as he solidified his base of social conservatives when asked about abortion and marriage equality as it related to Hispanic voters in Nevada, while Rubio struggled to pin Cruz in an awkward moment in which he accused the frontrunner of faking his Spanish proficiency and the Texas Senator responded in full fluency.

Fiorina once again flexed her business acumen and walked away from the debate in the middle of the pack, while Ben Carson continues to fade into the background except among the most religious of conservatives. The inclusion of Paul proved disastrous for Bush as the former mercilessly attacked the latter on perceived ties to the "establishment," leaving Bush largely without recourse for response.

While this debate is not expected to shake up the state of the race as much as November's did, it highlights the lack of a true frontrunner as time runs out heading into 2016 and Iowa.

The State of the Race

Ted Cruz has established himself as the clear frontrunner in Iowa, with Ben Carson a distant second, having consolidated many religious conservatives behind him, while Cruz dominates among movement Tea Partiers. Carly Fiorina has emerged as a slight favorite in New Hampshire and in the mix in Iowa with a mix of suburban conservatives, business conservatives, and those in search of an outsider. Meanwhile, Marco Rubio battles as the most conservative in the so-called "establishment" lane with Chris Christie and John Kasich, each who offers a moderate conservatism, but in either a pugnacious, or conciliatory style, respectively. Meanwhile, Jeb Bush continues to falter while the "fringe" candidates fade further in their numbers.

The Iowa Caucus will be the first opportunity for a sole candidate to separate themselves as a clear favorite, and right now Senator Cruz appears most poised to make that showing. However, before there will be Iowa caucuses, there must be an Iowa Debate. Donald Trump has already, in what many are calling a desperate bid to re-center attention around his stagnant campaign, announced that he will refuse to participate. He has been roundly criticized as "running scared" of moderator Megyn Kelly who openly referred to him as "wimpy" in light of the decision. This debate, and the campaigns' activities in the month of January, will be the last moment to make their case tio Iowans, who will set the tone for the rest of the primary schedule.

Iowa GOP Debate - January 28th, 2016

Des Moines, Iowa

Center: Ted Cruz

Center-Right: Ben Carson

Center-Left: Carly Fiorina

2nd from Right: Marco Rubio

2nd from Left: Chris Christie

3rd from Right: Rand Paul

3rd from Left: John Kasich

4th from Right: Jeb Bush

4th from Left: Mike Huckabee


Rick Santorum was not invited. Donald Trump refused the invitation.

With Trump ducking the debate, much of the beginning of the debate consisted of the remaining candidates using him as a punching bag. The best sucker punch was landed by Carly Fiorina, quipping that Megyn Kelly was "right on with her assessment, I'm glad we don't have to see that "wimpy" face right now, I just feel bad for everyone else on Channel 7 that does. Then again, I doubt anyone's watching his pity party." which drew raucous applause from the crowd. 

Carson continued on the decline, but cleaved strong to a religious appeal going into the caucus. Meanwhile, Ted Cruz was able to deftly ward off most attacks on him, which were launched by Christie, Kasich, and even Bush who all attempted to take a swipe at the caucus and national frontrunner.

Christie's strong personality made him a clear favorite among the "three establishmenteers" who languished in Iowa polling, as the media dubbed them. Still, it is unclear if his performance will result in any breakthrough performance.

Needless to say, the decision not to debate from Trump has hurt him dearly, while Ted Cruz appears locked in for an easy win in Iowa, with a crowded race for 2nd. Still, Cruz's numbers are weak in New Hampshire and will need a commanding victory to put him back within striking distance in the Granite State.

2016 Iowa GOP Caucus - February 1st, 2016

Ted Cruz - 45,798 votes (24.5%) 7 delegates

Rand Paul - 5,795 votes (3.1%) 1 delegate

Rick Santorum - 3,925 votes (2.1%) 1 delegate

186,932 votes cast / 27 delegates allotted



State of the Race Post-Iowa

As expected, Ted Cruz emerged as a clear winner in the Iowa caucus. Capitalizing on an endorsement from the Iowa Family Leader and important conservative movement leaders, Cruz won support in rural and small-suburban areas in the East and South of the state, while also racking it up among farmers. Ben Carson also posted well on the right flank, dominating among those caucuses which were closest to local churches and winning in counties dominated by small-town populations. Meanwhile, Carly Fiorina surged to a strong second place, capitalizing on Trump's weaknesses and the faltering of other more moderate candidates to win important victories in the Quad Cities region, Iowa City, and Des Moines. Her strength was most pronounced in urban areas and large suburbs, the latter of which has proven to be the core of her base. Meanwhile, Marco Rubio established himself as a strong fourth, toppling Trump and winning surprise victories in Linn and Story Counties, competing with Fiorina in the suburbs.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump's decision to skip the debate, which was met with harsh and intense criticism from Iowa Republicans who viewed him as a sore loser and dismissive of rural concerns, particularly after a clip of him diminishing Iowa and referencing his own "New York values" went viral, clearly proved to be a fatal blunder, with the business magnate severely underperforming polls. His reputation as a sore loser seems to have gone from bad to worse as the candidate went nuclear on Twitter, irate over a disappointing fifth-place finish, claiming massive and widespread fraud on the part of the Iowa Republican Party. The RNC has harshly disavowed these claims and criticized Trump, saying that "tonight is about the people of Iowa, Mr. Trump's destructive and false claims will be dealt with later," signaling possible sanctions on the Trump campaign yet to be announced.

Further down the field, Chris Christie emerged in an unsurprising sixth place, leading those candidates not viewed in the core of contention for Iowa, which is likely to save him from terrible effects on his bid for New Hampshire. Meanwhile, Jeb Bush's lackluster performance has left him vowing to compete until New Hampshire, but otherwise in peril. John Kasich says he will continue until at least his home state of Ohio's voice has been heard.

Other candidates on whom there has been pressure to withdraw have not been so hardy, with former Iowa winners Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum both suspending their campaigns. Likewise, a disappointing 3% for Rand Paul has been enough to end the campaign of the Kentucky senator. 

Unexpectedly, Huckabee and Santorum have refused to endorse anyone, though they are scheduled in South Carolina next week, as rumors buzz around who the two bible-thumpers will be supporting, with the leading candidate being an obvious Ted Cruz. Rand Paul, has announced his attention to support the Texas Senator, and will make a formal endorsement in New Hampshire this week.

Meanwhile, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has unexpectedly won the Iowa Caucus by 4 points over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, upsetting the clear frontrunner and shaking up the race. More on this "other primary" race as it develops.

New Hampshire GOP Debate - February 6th, 2016

Goffstown, New Hampshire

Center: Ted Cruz

Center-Right: Carly Fiorina

Center-Left: Ben Carson

2nd from Right: Marco Rubio

2nd from Left: Chris Christie

3rd from Right: John Kasich

3rd from Left: Jeb Bush


Following Donald Trump's tirade of attacks against the IAGOP, the NHGOP decided to disinvite Donald Trump from the New Hampshire debate. The RNC sanctioned the decision and announced that the mogul would no longer be welcome on any Republican debate stage due to his clear lack of loyalty to the Republican Party and low premium on the truth. Trump, incensed by his humiliation, once again announced a competing television program, even after the first suffered from terribly low ratings by the time it finished. Trump further endorsed Bernie Sanders in the New Hampshire Democratic Primary, stating, "Bernie and I are the only two candidates in this to win it for the American people, I will be the Republican nominee unless it is stolen from me, and Bernie will be the Democrat unless Hillary and the DNC steal it from him too!" Once again, Trump's poll numbers suffered because of these outbursts.

The debate itself was eventful even in Trump's absence. Ben Carson took aim at Iowa winner and frontrunner Ted Cruz, attacking him from the right on election integrity and religious issues, possibly trying to peel away Trump voters or setting up something else. Fiorina and Cruz continued their rivalry, sparring throughout the night while both Kasich and Christie had notable moments in which they issued takedowns of Cruz and Rubio respectively, arguing that the two don't have what it takes to be President after having only served as legislators, highlighting their experiences as Governors of Ohio and New Jersey. Bush did not seem to make the waves he needed to in this debate to move the needle significantly. Overall, Cruz and Rubio seemed to be on the defensive throughout most of the night while Christie and Kasich made gains.

State of the Race Post-New Hampshire

Fiorina's clear win in New Hampshire has established her as the obvious challenger to Cruz's position as national frontrunner. Her coalition of college-educated and affluent business-minded voters as well as those searching for a credible outsider has proven effective in New England. She was able to sweep the densely populated core of the state which stretches from the Massachusetts border to the Main border. Meanwhile, Chris Christie has taken a strong second place, breathing into his campaign new life with a strong performance among the non-college-educated moderates who populate the Vermont border, while Ted Cruz's 3rd place performance may be a far cry from the decisive win in Iowa from last week, but is certainly enough for a good night for the Texas Senator and enough to win Coos County in the far north.

Marco Rubio and John Kasich had less exciting nights, but both vowing to continue on, as Rubio looks forward to friendlier territory in South Carolina and Nevada, while Kasich maintains that his performance, and netting more delegates, is a win for the campaign and he will continue to march on.

Jeb Bush, however, has finally met his end. With a disappointing 8%, the former Florida Governor drops out of the race and announces his support of California businesswoman Carly Fiorina, the first major endorsement for the Granite State winner.

Fellow outsiders Donald Trump and Ben Carson also had disappointing nights, with Trump barely even referencing the results, just saying he will "never drop out" because he "will be the Republican nominee" and with Dr. Carson not even holding a New Hampshire event. Instead, the Carson campaign had already flown to South Carolina, where, in a shock to the media, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum announced they will be endorsing Carson in a prayer breakfast in Greenville, and touring the state's church groups with him in the week leading up to the primary.

The race in South Carolina will likely be a nailbiter with the frontrunner Cruz now having to fight back an insurgent Fiorina and a Carson campaign who is betting on a Phoenix-like comeback to save them in the Bible Belt. Meanwhile, Kasich, Christie, and Rubio will all struggle for the establishment lane, even with a little breathing room with Bush out of the race.

Donald Trump was not invited as per RNC decision. His competing television hour did expectedly poorly.

The field has been shaved to the final 6 candidates. Ted Cruz, still viewed as the national frontrunner, is expected to win in South Carolina. However, Carly Fiorina's strong performance in New Hampshire and an unexpected endorsement from Jeb Bush, who had been anticipated to support Rubio or Christie upon his exit, has vaulted her into a clear and strong second place. Accordingly, the two candidates spent most of the evening attacking each other, Cruz questioning Fiorina's conservative credentials while Fiorina leaned into her business acumen, hawkish foreign policy, and tough-on-crime position to appeal to the audience of South Carolinians.

Meanwhile, Ben Carson has been seemingly revived with a bevy of key faith-related endorsements, notably former candidates Huckabee and Santorum, cutting into Cruz's evangelical base. 

Christie, Rubio, and Kasich continue to battle for the establishment lane, splitting an already thin lane in the First in the South primary.

The debate itself is largely uneventful if only to establish the new pecking order in the race. It does little to change the state of the race, other than perhaps help Ted Cruz ever so slightly as he emerges as the clear "man to beat."

However, in the timeslot immediately following the debate, the Fiorina campaign hosts an event across the street. Unknown to the press at the time, her campaign has a surprise of its own. The guest is Governor Nikki Haley, who has come to give her coveted endorsement to the would-be first female President of the United States. The announcement draws eyeballs from across the state and the country, giving Fiorina important momentum to match Cruz's strong debate performance.

The Palmetto State is anyone's game.

South Carolina GOP Primary - February 20th, 2016

Carly Fiorina - 180,771 votes (24.4%) 35 delegates

Ted Cruz - 174,107 votes (23.5%) 6 delegates

John Kasich - 50,380 votes (6.8%)

Donald Trump - 41,485 votes (5.6%)

740,881 votes cast / 47 delegates allotted



State of the Race Post-South Carolina

Fiorina's squeaker of a victory in South Carolina has put the Cruz campaign on the backfoot. Still confident in the rest of the Bible Belt, the growing threat of a Carson candidacy is making itself clear to Cruz. Others simply chalk up the upset win to a late endorsement from a popular Governor. Whatever the case, Fiorina has dominated with lowcountry voters and suburbanites around the Charleston and Columbia areas, with Rubio snagging most support in urban Charleston. Carson and Cruz split the conservative upcountry vote with Cruz dominating in the popular centers of Spartanburg, Greenville, and Rock Hill as well as their conservative suburbs while Dr. Carson has won in rural, evangelical-dominated counties across the Upcountry and Black Belt.

Meanwhile, John Kasich and Chris Christie failed to win in specific counties, but both ate into Rubio and Fiorina's margin in the suburbs of the state, with neither making a particularly terrible or great performance relative to expectations. Donald Trump, on the other hand, continues to fall far short of his expectations and is now treated as a low-tier candidate who would not be invited to debates even if he weren't a stark-raving lunatic. His major support has all but evaporated after this embarrassing last-place finish. 

Marco Rubio is on the ropes, with the last hope for the candidate being a strong performance in Nevada. Otherwise, it is questionable if he is able to make it to his home state of Florida. Meanwhile, Kasich and Christie each seem intent on competing in the Northeast and Midwest, while Carson and Cruz appear headed for a collision course in the South. Can Fiorina compete everywhere without spreading her campaign too thin?

No matter the result, it seems all candidates are determined to compete through at least Super Tuesday.

BREAKING: Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval endorses Florida Senator Marco Rubio in the run-up to the state's caucus, sending the contest into chaos.

Nevada GOP Caucus - February 23rd, 2016

Marco Rubio - 20,834 votes (27.6%) 8 delegates

Carly Fiorina - 19,852 votes (26.3%) 7 delegates

Ted Cruz - 14,493 votes (19.2%) 5 delegates

Chris Christie - 5,886 votes (7.8%) 2 delegates

Ben Carson - 5,736 votes (7.6%) 2 delegates

John Kasich - 5,435 votes (7.2%) 2 delegates

Donald Trump - 3,246 votes (4.3%) 1 delegate

75,482 votes cast / 27 delegates allotted



State of the Race Post-Nevada

The endorsement from Governor Sandoval has indeed proved pivotal to the Rubio campaign, allowing them to surge ahead in Clark County and win the contest in a narrow margin over expected winner Carly Fiorina. The Fiorina campaign had invested heavily in the state following a strong showing in New Hampshire, expecting that the First in the West contest would be fertile ground for the native Californian. Indeed, that coalition seems to have held up in Reno and its surrounding suburbs on the California border but was not enough to overcome Rubio's advantage in the Las Vegas area.

In a somewhat distant third, Ted Cruz dominated the rural Cow Counties of Central Nevada but was locked out of the more populous areas, still, this is not a total defeat as he finished well ahead of the remaining candidates, with his campaign stating they are looking forward to a good showing in the Southern-dominated Super Tuesday next week. 

The result of the Nevada caucus raises questions about the longevity of the Christie, Kasich, and Carson campaigns. But with each having specific targets on Super Tuesday, they have all vowed to remain in the race. One thing is for certain, the 2016 Republican contest will see a record number of viable candidates competing into March as pundits now consider the very real possibility that no single candidate will consolidate the requisite 1,237 votes needed to win the Republican nomination on the first ballot.

In an increasingly irrelevant last place, Businessman Donald Trump had hoped his Nevada casino and hotel ties would win support in downtown Vegas. Instead, the New Yorker has seen his vote share shrink for the fourth contest in a row, nearly locked out of delegates altogether were it not for the pure proportional basis on which the caucus awards them. Trump will likely continue to be a political gadfly of the race, with enough funds to continue self-funding to the convention, but it seems his popular support has all but vanished.
