Just what Ron Paul needs - Latest PollsSubmitted by champion26 on Fri, 12/30/2011 - 23:45
The latest polls showing Mitt Romney gaining steam are exactly what the Paul campaign needs right now.
Many of you ask why? Perception. Romney is now perceived as the one who will win Iowa. If this view holds going into the caucus, then when Romney loses to Paul, it WILL be considered as an upset. It will hurt Romney going into New Hampshire and it will help boost Paul's momentum in that same state.
The polls significantly underestimate Paul's organization, his Independent and Democrat support, and his young persons support. All these factors, as well as many others, will lead to many more supporters to attend the caucus than expected, as well as the fact that the solid organization on caucus night will bring many undecided voters over to our camp. I'm expecting a big victory.
That latest CNN poll where Romney lead Paul 25-22 is one of the best things i've heard. I never knew that Paul polled so highly among REPUBLICANS ONLY. That Ron Paul is only 3 points behind Romney is SIGNIFICANT because our strength is not with Republicans, it is with Independents and Democrats. Among these groups, Ron Paul dominates Romney in support.
So guys, consider Romney's gains in the polls as a good thing, because when Paul wins, it will help him far more than if he won when he was considered the front runner going into the caucus.
