GOP Websites

My latest review of GOP candidate websites in preparation for Thursday's Ushanka GOP Rankings Report.

Very little has changed since my last report.

Jeb has added an Issues tab at his site.  I was wondering if he would get to that before dropping out.   Except for his promise to repeal ObamaCare, his Issues are more noise than promises. 

Rubio has declared October "Policy Month."  I saw no changes to his Issues page other than this announcement.  Rubio's site has been in the top three since I started these reviews - up there with Paul and Huckabee for comprehensive positions on many issues.  I rated Rubio's site slightly higher in this review - a rating he should have had back in July.

For similar reasons I knocked Santorum's site down a notch.  He didn't have any changes since my last review, but his page is weaker than I originally gave him credit for.

Four of the fourteen GOP candidates - 29% - 
do not have Issues tabs on their websites.  

If you want to know where Cruz, Fiorina, Kasich or Pataki stand, you will have to dig through Google, YouTube and elsewhere to get your questions answered.  Is it not safe to assume, based on their vacuous websites, that a Cruz, Fiorina, Kasich or Pataki presidency will be a poorly managed mess that will put your interests in policy positions at the bottom of their list of priorities?

Of course, any of them would still be better than a Democrat. 

The latest tally:
