CNN Poll: Ron Paul Most Popular Republican Amongst Non-Whites

While the establishment media continues to hype a 15-year-old story concerning decades old newsletters as part of a dirty tricks campaign to smear Ron Paul as a racist, the latest CNN poll shows that Paul has the most support from non-whites out of all the Republican candidates.

The latest CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday finds that Congressman Paul scores highest amongst minorities when matched up against Barack Obama in a hypothetical election head to head.

Paul scores 25% of the vote amongst non-whites, whereas Romney polls at 20% and Gingrich gets 15%.

Ron Paul is clearly the most popular GOP contender amongst non-whites out of the entire field, suggesting that the “racist” smear, which was heavily pushed back in 2008, has had very little impact whatsoever on the views of those who presumably would be the most likely to be offended by it.

Very good news. I have been

Very good news. I have been in some heated debates over Ron Paul' candidacy. It always brings me joy for my opponents to say they would vote for Ron over Obama.

The Daily Caller has picked up on this story

Poll: Ron Paul would fare best against Obama among non-white voters
By Steven Nelson, 12/22/2011

Simplest argument goes like this

Ron Paul has proven that he doesn't mind sharing a vision that goes against the mainstream, time and time again. EVERYBODY, liberals, neo-cons, you name it will agree on that one.

So, if he were a racist at all, he would be arguing for race inequality the whole time. He doesn't, which in his case means he isn't racist. Actually one cannot say the same thing of the other candidates.

Nicely explains why he has the black vote as well.

You make a great point.

Those who say RP is a racist must bear the burden of proof willingly. Otherwise, they are guilty of being intellectually dishonest.

The reason this is so is because calling RP a racist violates the law of non-contradiction. A thing cannot be that thing and not be that thing.

RP supporters must not allow themsleves to be tricked into defending him on this.

Let his accusers prove him guilty.

I was an "Anchor Baby"

My parents were here on expired student visas when they had me. I still support Ron Paul even though he is against birthright citizenship. I am a proud Filipino-American for Ron Paul.

Not completely

I believe he has said to close that for now until things get back to normal. If there isn't any entitlements to be had then people will immigrate to find work and better their lives. Not come here just to get a free ride.

Not to say that's what your parents did. Just saying he isn't against birthright citizenship, just it isn't a good idea at this point in time.

This poll was released on

This poll was released on Tuesday. CNN did their hit piece on Wednesday.

So many times,

I've thought that things were about to head downhill for us, but things just keep rolling on and moving up. I'll be a bit surprised if this actually grows legs with our minority populations. This would indeed be a sign that we are moving into a post-race America.

So many individuals who just happen to be

of a non-white race (or a mix thereof) have a pretty clear understanding of the difference between a remark that centers around race and a consistent record of policy on issues that actually matter, such as imbalance of incarceration ratios and equality of jobs in a free market, that they are not so easily swayed by a flippant remark.
I had it pointed out to me this morning that it isn't just that Ron gets more from the military than the others, but the military constitutes his top three donation categories. Many enlisted folks are non-white, so it all makes sense. Thinking people of all colors can come together for a Paul presidency, and it scares the bejabbers out of the powers in place.

This is exactly why the media can't run a hard court press on

this issue. The more they talk about, the more minorities hear about Ron Paul's ambition to de-criminalize drugs, and other social battlegrounds that enslave minorities in unproportional numbers. Who the heck else but Ron Paul even dares tread around these issues?

I am an immigrant

I am an naturalized citizen. I am Hispanic. I will vote for Ron Paul.

to funny

It will be way to late in the day when the MSM outlets realizes they have something they cannot control. the more they try to discredit Paul, the better he looks. This is what makes a leader!

Ron Paul 2012!


for this very nice find - gives me considerable hope we can pull this baby off!

Now I still think we may have "peaked" too early and Iowa isn't more than a pyrrhic victory. That said, here's hoping we can win Iowa! A lovely (belated) Xmas gift that'd be!

I met a black man in the subway yesterday...

in NY. He noticed my Ron Paul button and said that he supported him too. He is a member of the Veterans for Ron Paul group. Don't believe everything (actually anything!) the mainstream media tells you about blacks and Ron Paul. There are more out there that support him than they think. And that's what scares them!



Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

That is great news

let's hope Dr. Paul message continues to spread and be understood by all.

Thank you! This makes all the other threads/storys ridiculous.

This shows how silly and upset over nothing everyone is getting about this racist nonsense. Anyone who listens to Dr. Paul realizes he is talking about Liberty for all people, equally.


It's good to see people making up their own minds and not letting the MSM tell them what to think.

Blowback alert!

Yet another idiotic corporate media attack on Ron Paul has backfired big time.

My theory is that what is happening is that minorities are hearing the MSM harp about the alleged newsletters, then they are Googling Ron Paul and finding out what he really stands for... reading about the causes he has spent his entire life fighting for... and then they are realizing he is stronger on civil rights than all of the other GOP candidates and Barack Obama put together.

Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy. -Ron Paul 7/10/03



its not going to work, when the people see who owns the media

The problem with America is simple, we allow the Banks to give us Christ!!!! You need to stop being thin skin. Because there is no Hero when it comes to your Idea! More so in the world of the public arena here in America, and the Banks know that, but they can produce one for ya, they can establish a superhuman in the realm of their Ethics and so forth,
Stop freaking out on some report from the media, if you are freaking out, well its because you are sick in the mind still, and they know that!!! I dont care who you are or what race, they are going to tell you who is clean and who is not, they the Banks are GOD and they'll give you Christ!!!

This should be sent to

This should be sent to drudge.

Because his actions speak louder than words

And his platform will liberate and save the lives of millions of non-whites.

Their crap ain't sticking.

People are wise to their game.
