is right behind Newt Gingrich by one percent in a new Iowa poll of Republican caucus goers.
Ron Paulers have been saying for weeks they believe their candidate of choice is going to win Iowa and it appears they were not overexagerating, according to the latest that puts them neck in neck with Gingrich leading with 22–21.
The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, shows Gingrich way down with tea partiers, and a huge jump in Paul’s numbers and popularity, according to the Daily Caller.
“There are a lot of parallels between Paul’s strength in Iowa and Barack Obama’s in 2008 — he’s doing well with new voters, young voters, and non-Republican voters,” said PPP explaining the findings of its poll.
Ron Paul (R-TX), is one popular GOP candidate for the Republican presidential nomination to those who've done their homework. But for those who have not done their due diligence, he may seem like a long shot.
Many individuals dismiss Ron Paul because they make shallow comments like, "He's too old, his wife isn't pretty enough to be in the White House, he's too radical." While making those cheap slams I wonder if any of them have done their homework on Ron Paul? Do they even know what he stands for? Do they know the plans he has to rescue this country?
Sunday it was announced that Ron Paul took down former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in an online straw poll for students of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
Ron Paul has won numerous offline and online straw polls throughout his campaign that have been written off, speculated for cheating and blacked out by the mainstream media, which is exactly why those who are not of the r3VOLution may have no idea of his popularity.
The army of support Ron Paul garners is so astounding that polls where he has taken it home in a big way have been accused of being hacked or not secure.
Contrary to mainstream polls, at Drake, Ron Paul took first place with 35 percent of the votes. Mitt Romney came in second with 25 percent of the votes and Newt Gingrich won third place with 10 percent of the votes.
Ron Paul doesn't give a flying rip about overpaid, frivolous spending government bureaucrats. He's all about limited government, so of course he could care less about them keeping their jobs because Ron Paul cares about the people---We the people...
That truth was obvious Tuesday night in New Hampshire as the Texas Representative talked about his plan to cut $1 trillion his first year in office as the president of the United States, according to Boston.com.
Speaking to a crowd of around 500 individuals at a town hall meeting in Peterborough, Paul said, “Some would be laid off, but economically there’s a big difference between a bureaucrat who hinders productivity than people in the workforce who actually produce goods and services."
Dr. Paul got down and dirty with his one-of-a-kind foreign policy message when he said, "Stop the drones. Stop the bombing. Bring our troops home."
Perhaps one of the many messages the good doctor sends out that brings him young college-aged students to his side waving signs, having a good time in the r3VOLution, tweeting and networking endlessly on Facebook and Digg is the one he reiterated in The Granite State. He said that he believes those under 25 should have the choice to opt out of Social Security.
How does he plan to keep the current retirees funded, you ask? Simple! He will do what he's been saying for years, "Mind our own business and cut overseas spending."
Paul made his usual slam dunk when discussing how American's can live within their means, by saying that folks would learn to be more careful if they knew government wouldn't be there, “If we didn’t have bailouts, dependency on government, welfare for the rich, food stamps for the poor.”
So what do you think about Ron Paul's message? Do you think he is way out of the ballpark, or do you think he has a sound plan to get the U.S. back flying like a strong eagle?
~*~ Due to the media black-out,intentionally shines a bright light on GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul. Some individuals call it unbalanced journalism, she calls it liberty of the press--"marching for 'We the people'--maximum freedom, minimum government.
darrylwalter Prediction - Ron Paul wins in Iowa and New Hampshire and GOP totally freaks out.
Bry_Dis88 I wish I was in New Hampshire to go to a Ron Paul town hall meeting. That would be a good Christmas present.
