    Only two that have any real chance in any major election... but many altogether. Those two are not well liked... just well hated and well feared... so why do they keep winning? If you already know the answer, please go to my latest poll. http://www.sodahead.com/quest...
    If you don't know the answer and would like to learn.... my older polls and my blogs are still around.
