GOP Presidential Candidates: 'Intelligent, Crazy, Impressive, Scary, Principled Nuts'

After six rounds of asking influential Republicans to describe their various candidates in one word, our Patch-Huffington Post survey creates some pictures of the candidates.

A little more than four months ago, our Patches in Iowa began working on a project with Huffington Post and our Patch bretheren in other early voting states.

Since then -- since back when Michele Bachmann was atop the GOP heap -- we've asked influential local Republicans to describe, in one word, various candidates.

Each word cloud you see here includes answers for a particular candidate. The bigger the word, the more often it was offered. 

We'd like to know what you think. Describe the candidates in one word in the comments section below.

Ron Paul's comments seem less than flattering.
