Ron Paul Hits Double Digits in Latest CNN Poll

"Removing Trump's name from the list and allocating his voters to their second choice gives Huckabee 21 percent and Romney 19 percent - essentially unchanged from January. In a Trump-less field, Gingrich gets 15 percent, up from 10 percent in January, and Paul goes from 7 percent to 11 percent. Palin is the big loser, dropping from 19 percent in a no-Trump round in January to just 13 percent now," adds Holland.

Can Republicans Win without us? That is the question.

And if the answer is NO, they can't. Factually, can't win without us, then we have REAL POWER.

We have the POWER to stay home.

Answering this question as scientifically as possible is both powerful, an dangerous to us and our movement.

I suspect the answer is they can win without us. I suspect that they sense this, so does the media.

Now let me speak about our ideological opposites, the progressives. They too are in the same position that we libertarian-conservatives, strongly passionate, well reasoned, but ultimately, numerically weak in numbers.

We need to find a way to come together on the issues we agree on and support where we can.

Is this to say Trump is the

Is this to say Trump is the major candidate? Tell me it isn't...

7% or 8%? Which is it?

From CNN:

"Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who also ran for the Republican nomination in the last presidential election, is at eight percent..."

And in the same article it says:

(Without Trump)"Paul goes from 7 percent to 11 percent"

So which is it, 7 or 8? If you're going to make up statistics, or bias them by only calling voters with land-lines, at least TRY and use the same lie. At least in the same article!

Freedom Wins!

two different things

The 7% is what Paul was at in January. The poll states that without Trump, Paul went from 7% in January to 11% in March. The 8% is what Paul is at today in the same poll if it included Trump.

phone calls

I always here about these polls they have conducted. Can I ask you guys a question? Has anyone ever received a call from cnn, fox, or msnbc? or any poll conductor? Because I haven't.

Spin...spin...spin!!!

Yippeeeee....more spin-doctoring.

A Bogus Poll !

From the link:
"The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey was conducted March 18-20, with 1,012 people questioned by telephone."

If we held a poll here and 1,012 responded, I'm sure Ron Paul would score over 90% !

The point is the poll is made up of hand picked flunkies.

beesting

Unless I'm mistaken...

...phone polling only polls people with land lines. At least that was the case during the 2008 election. I think it's already been established that Ron Paul's demographic is much more concentrated with tech savy people who have cell phones, instead of land lines.

i see this is as great news

Starting out in double digits polling before he even announces his candidacy. I dont think ron ever hit double digits in a nationwide poll before the primaries last year.

CNN Facts

Yes I know that's an oxymoron. Can we really believe any poll from MSM?

Thanx,

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

What Ron Paul voter

would support Donald Trump...ever? You're telling me 4% of people would be peeled off of RP's campaign if Trump ran! This is a joke right?

its opposite

The poll stated, if trump wasn't running, then those Trump supporters would vote for RP... not the other way around.

Thats a good point

When RP wins, he will have gained a lot of supporters from all the other candidates. These new supporters will not be part of the diehard legions of RP supporters. Rather they will be superficial voters that think what RP says, sounds good. However we need them too. Actually, we need 3-4 superficial supporters for every intellectual supporter that is already on board. Bring on the Fluff!

yeah, that don't sound very

yeah, that don't sound very realistic.

Voters Are Desperate for Non-Politicians

Voters are desperate for famous people who aren't politicians. They want a governator, or other actor (Reagan) or celebrity (astronaut, singer, doctor, businessman) to elect. They aren't looking very deeply into it. It's just a way to say, "I don't want what I've got."

That's why Obama did so well, he was an unknown who was made famous by the media in time to win.

In this respect, Rand may have the edge over Ron. Ron's fame has already helped Rand get enough fame he can't be ignored. Most voters vote very superficially, and the tallest candidate usually wins.

What we need, really, is control of Congress.

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

When CNN takes a poll, who is

When CNN takes a poll, who is their target participants? Almost every talk show, that I've tuned into, offhandedly dismisses Ron Paul as a serious contender. I know this is a deliberate manipulation of the GOP field of candidates so therefore I can only wonder on the veracity of their reported polls. Even Trump is on The View citing the CNN poll as favorable toward himself as running. He's going for celebrity status. Everything that is gone amuck with the world-wide perception of US can be reflected in this man....OUCH! BTW listening to these vapid women discuss world affairs and internal politics on the world stage is painful and a mockery to any informed citizen with an IQ above 90. Whoopi, it seems, has regular difficulty discussing or tolerating policy and politics outside the realm of her own racism.

I wouldn't take a CNN poll too

seriously. They are well known as propagandists and liars.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

TRUE

but a propagandist in RP's corner can't be too terrible.
