*7) Which 2008 Republican presidential candidate do you think is most likely to win the Republican nomination. So, this is not your favorite candidate, it’s the candidate you think will come out on top.

* In the initial email, John Cox and Ron Paul were accidentally left off as choices on the list of candidates most likely to win the nomination. However, another email was quickly sent out letting everyone on the list know that both men were possible choices and telling them that it was perfectly acceptable for the handful of people who had already sent in responses to revise them to include Paul or Cox as their choice for #7.
