A week ago we presented here a comparison between two lists of probable 2016 Presidential candidates and our Israel Factor list of desirable 2016 candidates. The idea was simple: both The Fix and Prez16 have lists of "candidates with the best chances" and we have our own list of candidates that our Factor panel members think are "the best for Israel". As we concluded from looking at the first two lists:
If you add chances to our "good for Israel" rankings, you get the sense that Clinton is the best potential candidate among Democrats and Christie the best candidate among Republicans.
Our previous list, though, was somewhat short of being complete. We based it on The Fix's list of Republican candidates and the Prez16 list of Democratic candidates. Since both have now completed their own rankings of the other party (respectively), it's only natural for us to revisit the lists and present them in full. So what you see here is the following: Republican prospective candidates by The Fix and Prez16 compared to our top Republicans – and Democratic prospective candidates by The Fix and Prez16 compared to our top Democrats (there are a few comments after the tables):
