Fox News: Ron Paul #2 in New Hampshire Straw Poll behind Romney

I can't believe it, but Fox News just ran a segment on the New Hampshire straw poll (sat 5:00est). Mitt Romney led the straw poll in New Hampshire w/ 35% of the vote. Much to my suprise, THEY ADMITTED (Fox News) that OUR Dr. Ron Paul took 2nd w/ 11% over Sarah Palin,Michelle Bachman etc...Does anyone have the capture?

Romney 35%

What the hell is wrong with NH?

Been a while since I made a comment...

But I'm soooooo looking forward to the debates. Watching the atmosphere change as an articulate as ever Dr. Paul teaches them what's up. I think as much as they tried to co-opt the Tea Party movement, the real motivation comes from the grass roots which can't be ignored anymore. I think they will show Dr. Paul much more respect on stage this time around. I can't wait.

we forget

that ron paul and hillary clinton actually won the n.h. primaries when comparing the exit polls in hand counted precincts to that of machine counted. mclame and osama won because the machine counted had the most delegates in those precincts. www.blackboxvoting.org

i know that rombot has some popularity in those states, but i can't see that the FREESTATE PROJECT folks have that much of a discrepency in NH. i think the early fish are starting to smell, is what i think.

Excellent Analysis SteveMT

Ron Paul Must Run As A Republican. It Gives Him The Best Chance To Win..

Hopefully, Ron Paul Decides To Make A Run, Otherwise There Is No One Else On The Horizon Representing The Freedom Movement That Can Beat Barack Obama..

If Ron Paul Doesn't Run We Are Finished As A Republic..

It May Be Too Late Already..

The Event Is In The Hand Of God..

Let Us With A Fervent Heart, Go Inside Ourselves And Pray That The Lord Guides Our Souls And That He Sends Us The Answer To Our Prayers..

The Hill: RP takes 2nd in NH straw poll!

Ron Paul takes second place in New Hampshire straw poll
By Brent Budowsky - 01/23/11 06:17 PM ET


First, the clear front-runner for the Republican nomination is Romney. By comparison, Sarah Palin for president in 2012 is largely a fiction of cable television with too much time to fill and not enough real news to fill it. The big news on the Republican side is the great advantage now held by Romney.

Second and equally interesting, the strong showing by Ron Paul emphasizes a point I have been making for many months, that Paul could make a powerful showing if he runs for the Republican nomination.

Paul, whose visibility and stature will rise as he assumes a subcommittee chairmanship with jurisdiction over the Federal Reserve Board, has a large contingent of very loyal supporters and significant fundraising capability, and his strengths would play well in a Republican primary or caucus system.


Watch out for McCain!

If Romney stumbles, as I believe he will before New Hampshire, don't be surprised if John McCain is "drafted" to enter the race to "stop Ron Paul."

This is one of the many reasons I urged you to help me stop McCain in Arizona in both the GOP primary and (with the late Dave Nolan) in the general election.

McCain permanently blew his

McCain permanently blew his own chances up last time. He was like a roasted moose served up by Sarah Palin.

Agree. McCain has already been eaten and digested by the system.

The Repubs are still trying to justify his choice of Palin, still trying to ram her down our throats. She is a quitter, resigning a governorship for no apparent reason.

2012 is the year of Ron Paul.

Time to remind the world about this poll...

"Rasmussen "Shock Poll" w/ Dr. Paul video interview: Ron Paul 41% Obama 42% in 2012!"

Yes, this poll should be kept

Yes, this poll should be kept in memory all the time.

"Air is the very substance of our freedom, the substance of superhuman joy....aerial joy is freedom."--Gaston Bachelard--

Ron Paul 2012!

Ron Paul 2012!

Romney, another empty suit.

Seriously, the guy is 100% dependent on his scripted notes. A total bafoon without them.
Yet somehow he becomes intelligent whenever he "authors" an article that is released to the msm.

You would think after the Romney's Whisperer debate moment, that he would be out of public life. Amazing.

If Romney Gets The Nod From The GOP Obama Will Win A

Second Term..You Can Count On That..

We Must See To It That Ron Paul Wins...There Is No Tomorrow Folks.


Yes "Emalvini" I agree that if Romney gets nominated...

That Obama will win a second term.

I'll help see to that by voting 3rd party or writing in Ron Paul.

But in Washington State, write-ins are not counted in the general election, so more likely it would be the Constitution or Libertarian Party candidate for me.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

It would appear that all

It would appear that all predictions may be accurate. Mitt Romney is the (s)elected one. Much effort seems to be used to discredit Palin's chances. Ron Paul, as usual is being patronized to:

1) cover the overt manipulation to overlook Paul and surge forward with the Romney ticket;

2) to placate the Ron Paul supporters that Paul IS being polled even with an 11% showing

The GOP needs the tea partiers and RP supporters to put their man (Romney) in...
Would RP stand a better chance running on coalition ticket????

I heard this on the radio

last night. I'm starting to get that feeling again and I love it! I'm ready to campaign for the Dr. Paul revolution.

IMO, this just illustrates

IMO, this just illustrates that the neo-cons are still firmly in charge and that few of them have changed their attitudes. Further, it tells me that Obama is looking at another 4 years (if an election were held today). Obama has no mathematically certain competition yet.

Good news, bad news

It does illustrate the broad-based popularity Dr. Paul enjoys.

I do agree with you, regarding the neo-cons. Of course they are in control of the GOP and its so-called Conservative Movement. That isn't going to change in the next electoral cycle. It may never change.

Voters Google Ron Paul

It's so much fun that when voters google Ron Paul, they'll get so many popular parades and rallys on YouTube, they'll think he's a rock star. I'll bet there aren't very many YouTubes of Romney rallies and that they pale in comparison.

It's too bad Romney is so tall and handsome, because it may win votes, even though he seems so empty.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Romney is a "say anything"

Romney is a "say anything" phony and not much worse than Obama. And Obama, suddenly he's pretending to be the pal of big business, which is only marginally better than what he was last month... What will he be in two years? The man is a chameleon, which could be good enough to confuse voters into giving him 2012.

Everybody in the mainstream is smitten with haircuts. Hence the obsession with Palin. Obama is essentially a haircut/empty suit too IMO. I read "Audacity of Hope" the same time I read "The Revolution" and the difference is incredible. I mean I KNEW that they would be dramatically different in worldview, but someone like Dr. Paul is a student of government and human action and presented a technical thesis on societal cooperation. Obama wrote giving his wife chocolate ice cream kisses and how he likes to knock a back a few while watching basketball.

How many jobs could this guy get hired for with his technical knowledge or managerial experience, etc., previous to being a senator/president? There was a great moment in a recent Jim Rodgers interview where they were discussing the economy and the interviewer asks "Do you think President Obama understands this?" and Jim laughed and said "Obama doesn't know anything. He was a community organizer."

OK - Pause on this and let it detonate in your mind, because you have to forget about the D vs. R rhetoric that this issue had (e.g., community organizing is a noble pursuit etc). The main point is that the POTUS was not required to have any technical or experiential knowledge in things such as how an economy functions, the role of money, foreign policy, the constitution, rule of law on and on.

The fact that anyone can hold up Obama or McCain or Romney or Palin or George Bush next to the knowledge base Dr. Paul has and not overwhelmingly agree that Dr. Paul is order-of-magnitude more qualified is, IMO, a demonstration of wholesale insanity. Maybe from all of our choices over the past decade plus, maybe - just maybe - Bill Clinton would not seem embarrassingly ignorant in comparison.

So anyways, I guess this was a long way to say that I agree with your sentiment :-)

When I think of Liberty and pulling the nation out of its downward spiral I just put on my magic undies and think of Romney.

Romney being Mormon is the only part of him that I don't dislike. I think all religions are crazy anyway, but Mitt is pure liar and has the constitution of a jellyfish. He seems compelled to keep running for president until he figures people will just give up and vote for him out of sympathy.

'Mormon' isn't the first word I think of when I think of Mitt...

...But it IS one consonant away from it.

hard to believe it is only 11%...anyways we have work to do.

The numbers can grow fast, if

The numbers can grow fast, if the authorities ability to generate "positive" news by racking up more debt and printing more money starts faltering. Lot's and lots of people seem to think we have now "turned the corner" economically, since their immediate daily worries about job losses, foreclosures and such are less acute than a year ago, and the news shills keep forgetting to include the massive debt ramp that has accompanied this modest stabilization, as well as how unsustainable it is.

Obama / Romney and their ilk, just may enjoy another election with a majority still under the illusion, but it is going to be a tight race. And when the foundation does crack, another wave of of those currently curious and on the sidelines about Ron, will switch side. While those of genuine statist leanings will drift further left, and away from the current corporatocracy.

It is becoming more and more obvious, to ever larger numbers, that the entire "great moderation" was nothing but a mirage built on a debt and inflation ramp. Just like every other artificial boom. And the more obvious that gets, the less running as a "moderate" (aka a status quo apologist) will be seen as a vote getting strategy.


this is the first time NH GOP has done a straw poll and voting was limited to party regulars. No a bad showing under the circumstances.
