Issues on the table at the summit include the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership, which has proved controversial with hardliners in the Korean government, and the status of South Korea, who's political situaion seems very unstable at the moment

More explosions have been reported, they appear to be a barrage of missiles. It's too early to make any assumptions, but these missiles appear to be from the South Korea... We just have a report in now, President Kim Jong-un has been seriously injured in the explosion... President Clinton unaccounted for...

You mean the top general of the Korean People's Army didn't just seize power? Decades of Songun, or "military first," policy would have certainly put him in the positon to. Plus he'd be dying to after those recent "criticisms" and humiliations.

Accidentally deleted my whole 2012 intro!

With the war in South Korea proving costly, it looks like the election could go either way. Newt Gingrich is the current leader, with Jeb Bush in second (if he runs). Trump might run. Palin might run. Giuliani might even run. Who will win?

TRUMP "I'M RUNNING"

HT_trump_ml_150616.gif.c8747901d8116d363e01c20df3874476.gif

The Governor of New York announced his bid on Saturday, saying

"President Obama, who wasn't even born in this country, thinks he can control our freedoms bigly. I won't let Lyin' Obama do this, that's L-Y-E-N Obama!"

 

 

In related news, Sarah Palin announced on Tuesday that she would seek the nomination of the Republican Party for President.

To make things interesting, I'm playing as Gary "What is Aleppo?" Johnson. Can the Libertarians win support, and potentially decide the election.

This doesn't include the two candidates who are the only two who have neither confirmed or declined a run, Governor Chris Christie, and Representative Paul Ryan. Christie seems the most popular, he has grown more popular as Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich's popularity has declined following their peak.

 

Hypothetical internal polling, Republican Party 5th December

Gingrich: 13%

Christie: 12.8%

Bush: 9.9%

Ryan: 6.8

 

 

(I went back and edited the scenario to update the polling for the 5th December start because I doubt that Jeb would be as popular on his third attempt at the presidency.)

January 2nd.

 

One day remains till the Iowa caucuses. The general election is within <.1%. All the polls say Christie wins Iowa, but he's missed his chance to get on the ballot. Could Bush take it, with all the momentum around him?

No.

There was no doubt who the winner would be. Rick Santorum won 22% of the vote, almost 10% ahead of nearest rival Jon Huntsman. Here is the delegate count:

Santorum: 6 - 22%

Huntsman: 4 - 13.4%

Bush: 3 - 12.3%

Bachmann: 2 - 8.7%

Gingrich: 2 - 6.9%

Paul: 2 - 6.7%

Cain: 2 - 6.6%

Palin: 2 - 6.4%

Perry: 2 - 6.2%

Giuliani: 2 - 5.5

Trump: 1 - 5.4%

New Hampshire:

Chris Christie has only been in the race for two weeks, but he scored a victory in New Hampshire tonight, garnering 4 delegates and 17% of the vote. Governor Palin of Alaska got 2 delegates and 12%, narrowly ahead of Jeb Bush, who got around 11.5% of the total vote and two delegates. The shock of the evening was the fact that neither Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani or Trump got above the 10% threshold for delegates.
