1 Bernie Sanders Democratic 26-Dec "I don't want to do it unless I can do it well," he told The Associated Press. "I don't want to do it unless we can win this thing." 3
2 Jim Webb Democratic 20-Nov "I have decided to launch an Exploratory Committee to examine whether I should run for President in 2016" 4
3 Martin O'Malley Democratic 8-Jan "I am very seriously thinking about it, is what I would say," O'Malley said.

4 Joe Biden Democratic 9-Dec "Honest to God, I haven't made up my mind" 3

10 Rick Perry Republican 19-Jan “I think most people think we’re probably going to run, but we’ll announce our intentions in May or June,” Mr. Perry, 64, said. “I haven’t tried to be coy at all. I’ve been very forthright with my intentions to do the preparatory work that’s required, and we’ve done that.” 4
11 Rick Santorum Republican 19-Jan Santorum is still “several months away” from deciding on a second presidential run, however, and has yet to lay the groundwork for a campaign. “We’re just trying to get a sense of where we are,” he said. 3
12 Rand Paul Republican 9-Jan “If the ideas are resonating — if the ideas look like they have a chance – then it’s much more likely that I’ll make a go of this. If it looks like we’re at 1 percent, we’re not in the top tier, and it’s just going to be a quixotic sort of run, then I think it’s not something I want to do just for educational purposes. I would do it to be in to win. And that’s a decision we’re going to have to make later in the spring.” 3
13 Mike Huckabee Republican 26-Jan "Most of the people would say, 'Well I sure hope you're running,' and I would tell them well, I think you may get your wish." 4

16 Bobby Jindal Republican 5-Jan "I think the more choices for the voters, the better," he said. "I've never decided to get in or not get into a race based on who else is running.";"If I decide to run," he said, "it's going to be based on whether I think I've got something unique to offer." 3
17 Scott Walker Republican 16-Dec Walker says Bush’s action “doesn’t affect me one way or another.” Walker says whether he decides to run for president will be “based upon me, my family and my state and what I may or may not be able to do for my country not based on anyone else who may or may not be in the race.” 3
18 Ben Carson Republican 18-Jan “I am certainly thinking about it and putting together some infrastructure and listening carefully as I travel around the country,” 4
19 Marco Rubio Republican 7-Jan “I believe that if I decide to run for president, we have a path to be a very competitive candidate, and ultimately to win,” Rubio said. 3
20 Ted Cruz Republican 30-Oct “But if we run another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole or a John McCain or Mitt Romney, we will end up with the same result which is millions of people will stay home on Election Day … and if we run another candidate like that, Hillary Clinton will be the next president,” 3
21 John Kasich Republican 25-Jan I have not taken any options off the table. There's plenty of time for me to decide. And you know what? Ohio is a microcosm of America. And when you're doing things in a state like this where things are getting better, people are more hopeful, that's an important message to take around the country, whether I run or not. 3
22 Paul Ryan Republican 12-Jan "I have decided that I am not going to run for president in 2016" 1
23 Carly Fiorina Republican 15-Jan “Well, I haven’t made that decision yet, but what I can tell you is that I’m very seriously considering running,” “Because I think we need different experience, different perspective and a different voice,” she said. 3

26 Rob Portman Republican 2-Dec "I don't think I can run for president and be an effective senator at the same time," Portman said. "While I appreciate the encouragement I have received from many to run for president, my focus will remain on Ohio and running for re-election to the Senate in 2016." 1
27 Lindsey Graham Republican 29-Jan "I’m going to take a look at the presidential primary on the Republican side. We’ll have an organization up and running today," Graham told Fox News. "This organization will allow people to donate money and their time and resources to see if there is a pathway forward for me." 4
