This was passed as URGENT by Patriots---to give information on Election 2012......... (Sounds good).

In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
Time to face the facts. What the GOP fears most is what America needs most.
Neither Santorum nor Gingrich can win the Nomination for one simple reason. Neither of them can collect enough delegates to win the Nomination.

Neither man can be the nominee because neither one was able to get on enough states' ballots to make a difference. (564 delegates that Newt can't win ), Same with Santorum (over 700 delegates he can't win ). And the media as well as the GOP is praying to god that the American people continue to remain ignorant of this fact for as long as possible while they try to come up with a strategy that will bury Ron Paul before Romney is forced to face him on stage alone and the commentators are no longer able to marginalize Paul by giving all the questions to everyone but him.
Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are the only two candidates that made it on the ballot in every state. Romney will not beat Obama, he's too similar except he will raise taxes on anyone making 40k a year or less in favor of giving himself lower taxes. Independents are going to run to Obama if Romney is the alternative.
It is a two man race between Ron Paul and Romney for the nomination.
It is also a two man race between Ron Paul and Obama for the White House.
It's time Conservatives and people with any functioning brain cells in their heads started backing the only real candidate that will beat Obama and save America. And whether you like it or not, that candidate is, by default, Ron Paul.
The facts can't be twisted to point in any other direction. The Delegates decide who gets the nomination and you can't get delegates if you aren't on the ballots. It doesn't matter how much money gets pumped into your campaign by special interest groups. The facts are the facts.
Fact : Gingrich and Santorum cannot win the nomination no matter how much they get in " popular " votes.
Fact : Romney will fail epically against Obama in a general election.
Fact : Ron Paul will decimate Obama on his Foreign Policy stance alone. Add in his Economic and Defense policies ( All 3 of which were policies Obama ran on in 2008 and abandoned once he got in the White House so no one would be stupid enough to believe he's going to follow them in his second term ) and you have an un-beatable candidate in the general election who the bulk of the American people will vote for when they finally get a chance to see the man unfiltered and unbiased by the media.
America is broke and the average American is tired of hearing about another war on the horizon and seeing more dead soldiers coming home in coffins for no reason...all the while the freedoms they are dying to " protect " are being stripped away from us by our own government...one by one.
Obama has ‘0’ chance of beating Paul and Washington knows it. The GOP knows it. The corporations that own Washington know it too so they instruct the media outlets they own to hide it from you.
But now you know. Gingrich and Santorum are mathematically incapable of winning the Nomination and Romney can't beat Obama in the general election.
Ron Paul is the only choice we have. It's just nice that, for once, he's the RIGHT choice and not just the " lesser of two evils ". Stay in, Don't give in or up. Be diligent to take pictures and record the elections and exit polls if GOP wants it all in private, do what you can to secure the votes and post at watchthevote 2012 on facebook"


This poll is excellent! Apologies in advance as my comments may be a little more in the “general” department rather than relating to this specific post but I can't find a general area.

I would like to thank Daily Paul mainly for two reasons. Firstly our media (Australian) is actually worse than yours - believe it or not?! They have so called “experts” in US politics tell us that there are only TWO candidates - Romney and Gingrich and that's just the begining. Not that I like him very much but they don’t even mention Santorum either. I am trying to educate them and let them know that they are embarrassing themselves and that the general public knows more than the MSM and their so called "experts" but it will take time.

Secondly, from Australia it gets disheartening when all you ever here is Romney wins. If not for the Daily Paul that’s all I’d probably know but I know that I can come here and read what’s really going on and be informed that Paul is in second and has a very good chance at winning delegates.

It’s plain as day that Romney is almost the very definition of a bankster and surely would be the Anti Christ to the OWS? plus he would have signed the NDAA. Gingrich is loathsome man that wants to colonise the moon and is asking for another 9/11 because America “needs” it. Santorum wants to bomb more countries than Obama and says utterly stupid things like “why don’t gay people just stop being gay”. All of them (except Paul) would continue their bloodthirsty warmongering.

I know I don’t need to preach to the converted but Ron Paul sticks out like dog’s balls as by far the best candidate and, with Paul as an option, how on earth can ANYBODY vote for ANY other candidates! I did say it above but how can somebody vote for somebody who says that America needs another 9/11??!! Please get Ron Paul into the White House and spread some liberty down this way. We don’t have a Ron Paul down here.

Just like Ron Paul said,

Just like Ron Paul said, "steady growth while the other candidates go up and down (and might stay down)..."

"The true Patriot will repeal the Patriot Act..." - Ron Paul.

Yes, but after the vote fr--errr 'Santorum Surge' it's now:

Santorum: 36.6%
Romney: 36.4%
Gingrich: 17%
Cain: 11%
Perry: 9%
Huntsman: 4%
Paul: 3%

Silly libertarians, politics is for crooks!

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

Stay the course

Stay the course. At this rate, a 5-percentage point jump since January (one month), Ron will overtake Romney in less than 2 months. And even less if Romney continues to drop.

If RP keeps coming in 4th, 3rd and 2nd place but he’s number one in national polls this is going to get pretty hard for them to explain. That’s why the longer Ron stays in the race as a GOP candidate the more of their corruption will be exposed.

Not reflecting in tonight's caucuses

I'd say it's "strange" or "an anomaly" but I think most of us are pretty suspicious of the process itself

All voters

This poll is all voters, not likely voters. The likely voter screen tends to filter out a lot of our supporters.

I'm sure

Kill, Kill, Kill, Ricky is not to happy. And Newton swallowed a whole buffet when he read this. Hoping Rick comes in 4th tonight. How he is leading in MN., prior to tonight is beyond me.


It kinda came out of nowhere

And again gives some legitimacy to the idea that the whole process is orchestrated to make it more interesting than headlines like "Romney kicks the crap out of everyone, Again." Which reminds me. Romney is doing so well but I'll be damned if I have come across any Republicans who like him. Not one. I know quite a few who like Santorum for his supposedly strong religious convictions and pro-life stance and his scrappiness. I can understand that and at least respect that they are choosing a candidate that expresses their views. But not one for Romney. So either they are lying because they are embarrassed or again, this whole thing is orchestrated.

POLL: Ron Paul moves into 2nd place...

The numbers you are using are Republicans only

When including Independents (and Republicans) and increasing the numbers polled from 405 to 530, the results looked like this:

Romney - 28%
PAUL - 22%
Gingrich - 16%
Santorum - 16%


Finally, people might be waking up

People have been getting caught up in the two-party mindset for so long instead of listening to and supporting someone who makes sense!

Yippie! Yappie! and

Yippie! Yappie! and Yahooie!!!!!! :)

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

RP Surging 5 points in 7 days

Ron Paul Surging 5 points in 7 days!
Ron Paul is up 5 points since January. Romney loses 29 points since January. Ron Paul is in 2nd place and within 8 point striking distance of front man Romney.

Perception! We have within us the ideas to change the world's ideas.


I like these numbers too, but this poll was taken with a majority of dems.

The Democrats

Are included in the poll for questions not pertaining to the Republican presidential choice. Democrats are included in the polling for questions like if they think the country is heading in the right direction, whether they approve or disapprove of Obama, who would they vote for in the general election, etc.

When it comes to who you would choose for the Republican nomination, only Republicans and Independents were asked.

The poll cited above are the results from Republican ONLY (405).

However, they also released the results of what the numbers look like when they include Republicans AND Independents (530). Those results look even better and are more realistic (because they also include independents):

Romney - 28%
PAUL - 22%
Gingrich - 16%
Santorum - 16%

That's for Republican voters...

If you include independents the figures are:

Romney: 28%
Paul: 22%
Gingrich: 16%
Santorum: 16%

What this told me

was that these results give some legitimacy to the claims of voter fraud especially in Iowa and Nevada. The guy with no wins is polling in 2nd, 9 points behind the front runner? Road Apples!!! I believe he took Iowa and possibly crushed Nevada. I'm not a conspiracy guy but if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's not a chicken. The GOP is desperate and if this keeps up, they will become the Whigs. We are new blood and young blood and they need both badly yet they continue to fight us tooth and nail. This is just stupidity.



Wow, this looks legit

This is an amazing poll result. Best news we have had in weeks.

Look at this... on

Look at this... on RealClearPolitics.com

They list Paul last in the Results column. E-mail 'em guys, tell them to stop with the subtle tricks and bullshit.



That's because he is in 4th place in the average of polls.

That's not how they list the

That's not how they list the results, and if so it's not consistent.
