The Republican Field Is Shrinking Rapidly


I know how easy it is to lose track of things. So just for the record, we’re now down to seven real candidates on the Republican side of things:

  • Cruz
  • Rubio
  • Bush
  • Trump
  • Carson
  • Christie
  • Kasich

This doesn’t count the three dead-enders who haven’t officially quit yet: Jim Gilmore, Rick Santorum, and Carly Fiorina. By my figuring, New Hampshire should kill off Bush and Carson and get us down to five real candidates. Maybe even Kasich and Christie, too. For all practical purposes, by next Wednesday we might finally be down to our long-fabled three-man race.
