- Rick Perry: He just has to improve his debating skills and figure out how to reconcile his immigration views with the base (not easily done).
- Herman Cain: I do not know that he can improve his image with women quickly enough.
- Newt Gingrich: Throughout his long career, has a habit of shooting himself and others in the foot and I sometimes get the impression that Gingrich, like George W. Bush before him, thinks conservatism is what he says it is and not what it actually is.
- Jon Huntsman: I still find it shocking that the guy running as the liberal in the race, or at least the media accepted moderate, came up withe boldest, most conservative economic plan. His deficit reduction plan alone makes all the others look weak.
