GOP Rankings Report - Jan 1

Here is the latest rankings report.

Here is the criteria for the report.

Here is the last report.

The only news since the last report is both Graham and Pataki have dropped out of the race.

The only policy score changes belong to Fiorina, who has finally added an Issues Tab to her website.  She gets a score of "1" (out of 3) in the tax and abortion categories within the Domestic Policy tally.  I also reset all to "3" in the category of attacks - RNC vs. DNC.  There hasn't been anything in that area since the last debate.

The candidates' scores of conservatism, with a max possible of three:

Website Reviews:

Fiorina's new Issues Tab is quite impressive with videos, direct statements, some promises, and links to articles.   Definitely in the top 4 now with Rubio, Huckabee and Paul.  Unlike Rubio, Huckabee and Paul, we had to wait 6 months for Fiorina to share her positions on the issues on her website - probably one of the most basic tasks of a politician.

Fair question: Will a President Fiorina take 6 months to make common sense decisions that would take you or I five minutes to make?

With Pataki out and Fiorina finally stepping up, Kasich and Cruz are the only holdouts now without Issues tabs on their websites. Presidential candidates who portray themselves as leaders and who want your support, but who do not list their positions on the important issues.

Here are the current website review scores (Max = 3):
