TFD Opinions: Republican Presidential Nomination Odds August 21

10. Tim Pawlenty 0% (-6)- T-Paw dropped out of the race, good riddance.

9. Newt Gingrich 1% (0)- No changes for Newt except his critical trip to Hawaii to shore up his support for the Hawaii primary.

8. Rick Santorum 2% (0)- Rick Santorum, like gay marriage, can say he's a real contender but that doesn't make it true. Third tier candidate is what it is.
