New Hampshire packed in 19...

...potential candidates for president at its First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit in New Hampshire this weekend. And two more couldn't make it! That makes -- let's see -- 21 candidates running for the Republican nomination in 2016.

While it might just be easier to list all of the Republicans not running for president, here are the 21 candidates with their current percentage chance of winning, according to PredictWise. Did anyone "move the needle" this weekend?

Jeb Bush, 31.6 percent
Scott Walker, 18.1
Marco Rubio, 17.4
Rand Paul, 8.0

Less than five percent chance:

Ted Cruz
Mike Huckabee
Ben Carson

Less than two percent chance:

Rick Perry
Chris Christie

Less than one percent chance:

Bobby Jindal
John Kasich
Rick Santorum

Didn't make the list:

Donald Trump 
George Pataki
Carly Fiorina
John Bolton
Bob Ehrlich
Jim Gilmore
Lindsey Graham
Peter King
Dennis Michael Lynch

P. S. No matter who wins the nomination the generic Democratic candidate is favored over the Republican, 57.3 to 42.7.
