White House 2012 December Power Ranking of the Republican Presidential Candidates

Bookmark and Share   With just 30 days to go before the Iowa Caucuses, and as Newt Gingrich becomes the latest candidate to move in to position for frontrunner status, White House 2012 has issued its monthly power ranking of the candidates and for the 10th month in a row, Mitt Romney holds on to the number 1 slot.

The White House 2012 monthly ranking is based on the collective opinions of the staff of White House.  Each contributor has ranked the candidates in the order which they believe they will ultimately placewhen the nomination process is finished.   It is not a prediction of where they will place in Iowa or any other state.  It is an assumption of who will ultimately win the nomination.

This month, with the absence of Herman Cain, White House 2012 has seen most all the remaining candidates move up a slot.  The exceptions to this are Michele Bachmann and Gary Johnson who move up two slots, and Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman who find themselves ranked exactly where they were last month.  The same goes for Mitt Romney who has yet to lose his top position in White House 2012’s monthly ranking.  Former Louisiana Governor and Democrat Buddy Roemer has  reentered the White House 2012 ranking for the first time since May, when he came in 20th place.

It is important to note that Newt came closer to replacing Mitt in the number one spot than anyone has in previous months, so even the combined opinions of the White House 2012 staff see the race tightening up.
