PEOPLE WHO COULD CONCEIVABLY POLL TOP-3 IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY IF THEY ANNOUNCED TODAY

Serious but creative answers, please. Let's go a level deeper than "a gun holding another gun"
  1. Mitt Romney
    Boring but obvious. Don't we miss him, comparatively?
  2. Michael Jordan
    Think it out. Prickly Billionaire with a conservative personality he's mentioned over the years? No less qualified than half the candidates.
  3. Ross Perot
    What if he came back and just became analogous to Bernie Sanders but with credit?
  4. Mayor Michael Bloomberg
    Why not? He's be a voice of moderate reason and New York billionaires are polling well there
  5. Colin Powell
    "I can fix these wars."
  6. Sarah Palin
    The stuff she would be saying is similar to what Trump and Carson are saying.

  7. Arnold! A slight constitutional amendment ... And he's in!

  8. Another Bush
    Maybe a distant cousin? One good speech and he's in.

  9. Jesse Ventura
    Pro: As crazy as Trump and Carson, has the executive branch experience they lack. Con: sued American Sniper. So maybe run as an independent?

  10. Glenn Beck
    Classic American rags to riches backstory. Turned his whole life around. Media connections, large enough base. Strong opinions and tons of experience with debate.

  11. Chuck Norris
    he's already bought and paid for by the NRA, and he really is a neocon

  12. Rudy Guliani
    Conservatives believe he saved NYC. What would stop him from saving the rest of the country?

  13. Dean Cain
    Our generation's Reagan? He has a bachelor's in history from Princeton and a right-leaning Twitter feed.
