14. Teabaggers are there for the off season show, they don't have any weight in the nomination process


Dole
Bush
McCain
Romney


The Republican Party always nominates someone from their center who satisfies the establishment.

While the Democrats have a truly wide open process the Republican nomination process includes a large number of reserved delegates for state party allocation and their winner take all primaries give a huge advantage to those with money. All of the Evangelical/Tea Party candidates (Huckabee, etc ) in the past have ended up with no money and few delegates after the first three primaries.
