Unfortunately he is at 5% in another poll today. What gives?


If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

The poll you cited used a

The poll you cited used a sample of Republican magazine subscribers so it's bound to be a different result. Not to mention the inclusion of other undeclared candidates in the poll like Chris Christie.

Aesop Fabled...

Tortoise and the Hare reminds me of this struggle.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

check out the "party

check out the "party preference" section. ron paul is highest among indy voters, 1% above romney (WTF?), yet bachman (probably his biggest competition right now) is almost EXCLUSIVELY depending on GOP support. ron paul has a more balanced support, if he can pick up a few more GOP voters he's in great shape!

The neocons

are the most resistant to his ideas because they can't get past the fact that he doesn't pledge his undying love for Israel.

A typical conversation will go something like--

"RP is an isolationist!"
"You mean non-interventionist"
"But he's still a racist!"
"Austin NAACP yadda yadda*
"Oh...but he's a *gasp* TRUTHER!"
"*shows video where he says he isn't"
"Israel can defend itself *cue long explanation of ME situation*"

Israelis and Jews can literally do no wrong in the eyes of these people...unless they happen to vote Democrat or criticize Bush. However, they're usually willing to listen when you explain that their buddy Rick Perry is a snake oil salesman.

On a personal note, I'm having a lot of luck with center and right leaning Dems, who make up the majority of my state. I live near some pretty big name colleges so spreading the word there can have a HUGE effect.

I think this is more important than converting GOP members because they'll vote for any (R) that gets the nomination, they just don't want to see Obama get a second term. and with more Dems coming to Dr. Paul's table, the Obama vote will dwindle even further.

A signature used to be here!

we have to get the nomination

we have to get the nomination first. And to do that, we have to convert Republicans

Look for areas we're weak in this poll.

Ron Paul polls higher than any other candidate with the group who rates the likelihood of their voting between 7 and 9 out of 10. He polls in a tie for 4th with those who are definitely 10/10 voting in the caucus.

There is still a little too much apathy in our movement. People who would definitely vote for Ron Paul are not the most likely people to vote.

We need to shift a lot of our focus from winning over people we'll never win over and on to getting out the vote. The more people that caucus in Iowa, the better Ron Paul will do.

I disagree ...

Those are young voters. Those are the ones that are not going to vote if RP is not in contention in the polls leading up to the Hawkeye Cawkeye.

Paul is counting on them. If he is in the hunt and he runs a good campaign. Those beautiful young people are going to be his ace in the hole.

Obama did exactly this in 2008 and Paul is adopting the same strategy.

This is going to be so neat to see if we are successful.

"Obama did exactly this in

"Obama did exactly this in 2008 and Paul is adopting the same strategy."

That's irritating that you say this, this was Ron Paul's strategy in '08 and Obamas high paid crew saw how powerful the revolution was and adapted the name "change" shortly thereafter. Obama stole ron pauls thunder but instead of speaking with substance like ron, Obama spoke with vagueness.

I did not mean it in that way.

But in the market place of ideas, there are winners and losers.

BO had an advantage in 2008, not in substance but in symbolism.

You will have to grant me that one.

This is fantastic news!

Dr. Paul is poised perfectly to take the lead. More in-depth research of Bachman and Romney will show more people that they lack substance. I keep praying my fellow Americans start to think for themselves again, it has been a lost art for many over the last 30 years.

Must see video - 15% is the tipping point

We need to hit 15% - it's the magic number:

Terrific result partly

Terrific result partly because Perry, Palin and Giuliani are in this poll. Need them to jump in the race, few of their supporters would vote RP anyway. They dilute Romney and others.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

It looks like Paul and Bachman ...

got virtually all of Trump's and the Huckster's voters.

This is good news for South Carolina as well as Iowa.

This is going to be a three person race after New Hampshire.

And Paul is going to be one of those three.

Great news!!!!

Very Close!

Romney's support looks pretty soft, and Bauchman has foot-in-mouth disease and won't hold-up at those figures.

We are very close here!


"foot-in-mouth disease."


I just saw this, and was going to post it if no one had!!! SOOOO

AWESOME!!!!! :) I met Carol yesterday and took a picture with both Dr. Paul and her. I thought to myself, what a kind, genuine family it will be in the White House! :)



My GF and I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Paul and his wife Carol in May in Las Vegas. You can not get much more genuine then those two. Ron Paul is a man of the people and Ron Paul is Potus!

great showing

Look at Ron killing it with the independents! Lets shore up those 22% that are in the "probably going to vote" into the "definite" for Dr Paul.

He's also in 1st place among

He's also in 1st place among independents! That alone should be reason enough to consider Ron Paul over Bachman.

I'm just waiting for...

Bachmann's wave of support to fizzle out. She has been making some horrific statements. Paul's support is always consistently growing and never declines. Once you support Ron Paul you don't go back.

yes, she can do the Donald

yes, she can do the Donald Trump fade.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

Our man is running for the White House, not retiring.
