    I honestly don't know much about him other than he's South Carolina's U.S. Senator, he's a Tea Party favorite and he pisses Democrats off..

    What's the feeling out there?

    He is usually pretty good. Is he in or is this just speculation?

    I just wanted to get a general feel from others..

    I've heard him speak several times now and I'm always impressed with what he has to say.
    There must be some dirt on him but I've heard very little on that...

    You know, I like him very much, too, but he just doesn't have the charisma to go up against the teleprompter reader.....ya know...just sayin. We have to have a candidate with some force, strength, experience and great communication skills. I like Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and others for that but they don't have it all. Donald Trump has the fire, but not very sure on his record. He might be a RINO. :eusa_whistle:

    well, to a Tea Partier, Ebenezer Scrooge was a patriot....so DeMint would be almost a centrist.
