*Ron Paul - No chance? Yet Paul is polling dead even with McCain from last election.Submitted by FromFreedomToFascism on Tue, 09/20/2011 - 15:26
I'm tired of reading the "he can't win, he just doesn't have the support" arguments. I'm sure as are the rest of you. Well, this should shut many up for sure.
Have any of you looked at the national polls? Notice anything? These sites that call Paul a "distraction" and say he's not important can't get around the official polls.
In the latest Gallup poll, Paul has the support of Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum, and Huntsman COMBINED. That's right, ALL of them together equal Paul's support. So before you can say Paul is "nothing", let's face the facts. Why are Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum, and Huntsman on the stage? If Paul is "nothing", then these people are REALLY NOTHING, and have "no support" at all.
Like it or not, Paul is polling better than Romney did the last election, and dead even with McCain at this exact time last election cycle. So...Paul is polling identical numbers as the republican nominee last election...but has no chance? He has more support than all of these other candidates...yet they are still viable?
I think it's time we shove the facts in their face, and let them explain. Did McCain have no chance at all? No...wait...he kind of won the primaries, polling between 11-15% in September 2007.
So...that Ron Paul guy looks pretty good now doesn't he?
Remember, we were 1% in last in these same polls in 07. Now we're 3rd, tied with McCain from last cycle. WE CAN DO THIS.
