Nation Can’t Even Name A GOP Presidential Contender

April 20, 2011

This has to be a bad sign for the Republicans.

Most recent polls suggest that there’s no clear frontrunner in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. A new poll suggests that may have something to do with the fact that most people can’t even name any of the candidates. 

About half of all Americans — 53 percent — could not name anyone when asked which Republican candidate they’ve been hearing the most about, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center. 

The lack of knowledge about the several potential Republican candidates could account for Donald Trump’s recent rise in the polls. The business magnate and television personality already benefited from widespread name recognition, and in recent weeks he has dominated news headlines with his presidential flirtation.
