More Proof Of Victory! Recent Poll Data: Paul Vs. Obama Compared To Romney Vs. Obama

First, I apologize for the jumbled presentation. I've included links to the actual site so you can have easier viewing.

I removed the "RCP Average" because I wanted to focus on the polls taken since April 1, 2012.
I am very curious why so many Obama vs. Romney polls use Registered Voters while more recent Paul vs. Obama polls use Likely Voters.
It's also interesting how few polls have actually been included on Real Clear Politics showing a Paul vs. Obama matchup.
Have fun comparing the average results of the two matchups since April started. Hmmm...I wonder why there aren't more Paul vs. Obama polls being done...

Does anyone think that the type of polling was intentional?

Would polling only likely voters rather than all registered voters potentially lower Paul's numbers? It seems that more elderly voters would probably be polled in that case.
