This is a subject about which we need to keep updated, but it’s difficult to find all the information in one convenient place — although Salon posted this back in Frbruary: Evolution and the GOP’s 2016 candidates: A complete guide .
Wikipedia has an article on the Republican Party presidential candidates, 2016. It lists them all (so far), but it doesn’t give their positions on evolution and creationism. Some of them are already known to us.
Those who are definitely creationists are Ben Carson, Ted Cruz (almost definitely), Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio (probably), and Rick Santorum.
Those whose views we don’t yet know are Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Rand Paul, and Donald Trump.
John Kasich and Scott Walker have not yet declared their candidacy, and we’re not certain of their views either. But see Scott Walker Is a Creationist.
So your Curmudgeon is asking for help. If you know anything about the candidates’ views on evolution, and you can provide an authoritative link to your source of information, please let us know. There’s no need to bother with their views about climate change, same-sex marriage, immigration, or Obamacare. We’re pretty sure we already know.
