Bob Dole is the strong frontrunner after the Junior Tuesday Primaries, coming out ahead in eight states and making his nomination as the Republican Party’s presidential candidate appear quite secure. Pat Buchanan, meanwhile, seems stuck in a 30% voter approval margin; more than half of voters from Tuesday’s exit polls expressed that they felt Buchanan’s views were too extreme. Pacifica Radio’s National Affairs Correspondent Larry Bensky proposes that Buchanan will remain in the race for the Republican nomination so that he may further build upon his conservative political movement. It is possible that Buchanan may opt to run as a third party candidate if his bid for the Republican slot is unsuccessful. Steve Forbes may also stay in the running simply to push his economic plans into the Republican platform; if successful he stands to reap significant financial benefits.
