Ranking the Top 10 Republican Presidential Candidates

From a Washington Post analysis by Aaron Blake headlined “The top 10 Republican presidential candidate for 2024, ranked”:

Say what you will about Donald Trump and his continued domination of the Republican Party; his candidacy apparently isn’t scaring away ambitious Republicans.

The past week built toward a GOP primary field that might be 10 or so candidates deep. Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis officially entered the race. Former vice president Mike Pence and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum signaled that they are preparing campaigns. And, last week, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu placed the odds of his running at a weirdly specific number: 61 percent.
