Poll: 93% have favorable view of Ron Paul

Date published: May 24, 2012

He hasn't won a single state primary or caucus, yet Ron Paul soldiers on in the 2012 GOP presidential race. The most recent results from our Political.com poll indicate that an overwhelming 93% of respondents have a favorable opinion of Ron Paul, which transcends party affiliation. Paul has been the U.S. Representative for Texas's 14th congressional district, which includes Galveston, since 1997, and a three-time candidate for President of the United States: as a Libertarian in 2008 and as a Republican in 2008 and currently in 2012.

He is an outspoken critic of American foreign and monetary policies, including the military–industrial complex and the Federal Reserve, and is known for his libertarian-leaning views, often differing from his own party on certain issues. 82% of voters say they are very familiar with Paul’s position on key issues, while 17% said they were somewhat familiar with them.

The mainstream media continue to discount Ron Paul as a factor in the race for the 2012 Republican nomination, even though he and his supporters could become contenders when the convention meets in August. Based on our poll results, 93% of voters (comprised of high percentages of Democrats, Republicans and Independents) believe he is qualified to serve as the next president. Additionally, 79% think he made the right decision to join the race for the Republican nomination.

Hasn't won a single state?

Ron Paul with his supporters won already the very first state Iowa big time!

So far 14 delegates out of 28 and it is still not the final number.

Imagine what a crushing momentum the Ron Paul campaign would have from the very beginning of this GOP candidate (s)election process if the establishment and media would not succeed deceiving public with the never certified and most probably rigged straw poll, their "Santorum rochade" etc. and this smashing victory (so far 14 to 1) would be widely known to public back in January...

What concerns me

What concerns me is the report put out by the Missouri Information Analysis Center in February, 2009. In it, it lists the people and things that might be Militia related (read suspected terrorists). In this report, supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr, along with being pro-life, not liking the Federal Reserve, and owning a Gadsden Flag (among others) can indicate the government is watching. Military operations are being conducted in Tampa? The president now wants to quell discourse and assembly through executive order using the secret service? To all those Ron Paul supporters going to Tampa, be prepared.

My mother and uncle (her

My mother and uncle (her older brother) were recently discussing some local charlatan’s crooked political tenure when, after their discussion stopped, my mother said she was voting for Ron Paul, as she was disgusted with these crooks. My uncle concurred! I knew my mother liked Ron, but the noticeable part was my uncle’s admission. People just hate dishonest and devious crooks, and Ron, with his candor and rectitude, brings an honest statesman to the forefront.

I am 68 and i support Ron

I am 68 and i support Ron Paul. I happen to think personal freedom and liberty is still a good idea.protecting our borders but non-intervention.Do we really need to keep and support bases in 130+ countries? As long as America takes care of these countries through U.S. taxpayer dollars they are not going to complain.I have read Ron Paul's END THE FED, LIES THE GOVERNMENT TOLD YOU Myth, Power and Deception in American History and A NATION of SHEEP by Judge Andrew P.Napolitano.The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin who is this book said,"If America is to survive as a free nation,her citizens must become far more politically educated than they are at present.There have been so many books THE ROOTS of OBAMA'S RAGE,DREAMS FROM MY FATHER, AUDACITY of DECEIT, AUDACITY OF HOPE, CORE of CORRUPTION, THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT,and i just finished Philip Dru by Colonel Edward Mandell House. It has been estimated at only one hundred out of every million in America have read this book.My 90 old mother is one of those old people being put down yet she has also read these books and reads whistleblower publications because she feels it is her duty as an American to be informed. She has read the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of confederation,COMMON SENSE by Thomas Paine as well many quotes from our founders and many famous speeches. Why at 90 with vision in only one eye? Because of the following statement by Thomas Jefferson." If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be...if we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed." To me, my mom is a true patriot.

I am 175 & I support Ron Paul.

For much the same reasons you state, my family & I support Doctor Ron Paul on his quest... A possible quest!

They have stolen this election...

From Ron Paul! Not Just Ron Paul but the American people have had their election stolen. The GOP has totally cast the will of the people aside in an effort to force a bankster corrupt puppet who will lose on the people. This is an outrage and It makes me wonder why people haven't taken to the streets yet. The man gets 2,000, 4,000 10,000 people at rallies, you have polls like this and then they tell you Mitt Romney is winning. This does not add up at all. But we all know why. They are stealing the election from the people. You see how the GOP talks about the people of this country, they say the inmates have taken over the asylum. They consider us to be mentally ill sub humans that have no business in their system. We are animals to the, we are rats.

The should be a massive Ron Paul protest scheduled in the streets in DC and everyone who can should bring their guns and there permits to carry them. To show them who they are dealing. Because they don't you all will do it. They think you all will just cower in a corner and be abused, opressed and walked on like a door mat. Then they will take your guns away and force you to pay off the banksters party bill.

Ron Paul Won Probably every fucking State

It so obvious, I mean everywhere, even all over the world, people love this guy, and online he dominates, but when it comes to these caucuses, for some reason(FRAUD), he gets second place, third. This GOP is like a huge beautiful mansion, but insides it's rotten, and ready to collapse, it's really imploding now, they just can't hide it anymore

Good assesment

They are like whited sepulchres, full of dead men's bones!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Don't forget

Don't forget about the unusual phenomena which occurs every time votes are read out loud and publicly recorded, which goes something like..

"Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul,Mitt Romney Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul"

Also don't forget about the crowd comparison.. the "electable" Mitt Romney pulls like 200 people at campaign events (GASP!).. while "crazy old Ron" easily gets 5-10 thousand. It seems the only instance Romney is the winner is when the lights are turned off and the votes are "counted" by machine or in a discrete location. Of course when a recount is requested the ballots were conveniently discarded. I usually don't buy into conspiracy theories, but something isn't adding up.

Yeah, like that one Jewish

Yeah, like that one Jewish precinct, I think it was Nevada, where they had to read the votes aloud and they were all Ron Paul supporters. Everywhere else in the state he lost???? hmmnnnn curious.

You forgot the most important part

Ron Paul wins all the delegate slots...Speaks volumes about what is actually happening with the straw polls.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

in TX this tuesday and CA June 5 - cameras

...we need to put hidden security cameras on at least some voting places to count the traffic and make a count of RP voters. If this is legal.

And no, so far the votes do not ad up at all.

Ron Paul ... forever.

The cameras aren't at all bad idea

Even if you have camera just outside the polling station pointed on the door to the polling place.
I have a possible improvement suggestion for this - if the Ron Paul voters will spread word and then ALL wear say Ron Paul t-shirt, badge or whatever visually recognizable Ron Paul stuff then you can quite easily count them at home after the poll on the video and compare the number with the poll results.
If Ron Paul gets then counted substantially less votes than the number of people wearing RP stuff on your video, you can spread the word, get them make affidavits and get busted the election riggers. (Nobody sane would expect a Romney voter to wear RP stuff going to polling station.)
Alternatively the RP voters can of course come to the camera and just say "I just voted for Ron Paul" or whatever simmilar.
Picture is worth of thousand words, and especially in the age of TV being substituted by Youtube and like the motion picture can be worth of saving world from the hands of fraudsters who want it destroyed using their puppet politicians.

I would call this operation like "Small brother to bust the big one". ;)
What you need is one camera and one person at every polling station. (which of course can be helped with other RP supporter for a while when is his turn to cast the vote.) and get the RP supporters agree to be recorded for the moment after they made the history or alt least wear some RP stuff.

What is really needed is

What is really needed is people collecting Name, address and signature out side each precinct polling place of all who have just voted for Ron Paul. Then when they report 100 votes for Paul and there are 200 signatures it can be taken to court to prove fraud.

The precinct voting records will show those people voted and the signed list will show how they voted and the voters can be called to testify to the same.

Mighty mountains in grandeur stand, but tiny raindrops turn them to sand! Noah, I think I just felt a raindrop!!

Here Here !! Every F ING State !!

Nice to see sum people are still Lucid .

It's not fraud, it's stupidity

It may seem like he should be winning but we still have a ton of work to do. Just because we frequent pro-Paul sites and get a biased view doesn't mean the masses of sheep out there will vote for him.

There are over 300 million people in this country. How many Paul bumper stickers do you see? Just because his supporters are more active doesn't mean the sleepy sheep are going to get off their asses and vote. that's why we have to keep fighting.

Continually citing fraud does NOT help bring more people to support Ron Paul. It undermines the work we have to do and also turns people off.

I agree

I agree. I live in GA and not one person at my job has a Newt or Santorum bumper sticker, but most voted for Newt and a lot also voted for Santorum. I get a lot of 'we like Paul but he can't win' or 'I like Paul on everything but foreign policy' from them. We still have to work hard to get the message out. But that's not to say I don't think fraud is going on in the caucus states. That's without a doubt. However, I feel in the larger primary states the sheeple vote based on name recognition.

It's a good mixture.

It's a good mixture.

"The economy's not a class you can master in college. To think otherwise is the pretense of knowledge."

well, heck,

this is an online poll. Big deal. Ron Paul ALWAYS kills online polls, and always has, too.

Harris Interactive...

...which is on the list of the National Council of Pollsters (unlike Rasmussen) is a totally on-line polling company. They do take appropriate measures to balance the demographics.

Ron Paul was doing extremely well in February on Harris - RP won among 6 demographics against Romney, and won over Obama among independents. That Feb poll was not publicized at all in MSM. Nada. In March the results were almost as good. I got to this source only via ONE press article, in Examiner, and studied the original results - because Harris MIS-reported its own results, as typically did all other pollsters in 2012 cf, False headlines.

The 2012 is a year of the NWO polling - there was nothing like this in 2008 - when I followed the under-dog candidate Obama (Hillary was the establishment then in 2008 and Clintons obviously are the gray powers behind the Obama administration).

Everything about the polls this year has been false or falsified, except some results like Harris. Harris did not do anything in May or April - you can ask why. It was a monthly report.

Ron Paul ... forever.

You are right

Online poll respondents are younger and more engaged.... Ron's base. Older and less well informed voters who still pick up their phones to strangers calling and answering polls are less likely to vote for Ron Paul. So should we as a country follow the people who are engaged in the process and have done their research and say that Ron Paul should be the nominee, or people who simply watch TV and let TV tell them how to vote? If you are here and still undecided, think about this a bit more. The time of mobsters running our political process, spending our money with no regard for our needs, and sending our people overseas to die for no reason other than their own financial gain is nearing an end, and Ron Paul is carrying the flag out front.

The Oldsters Wondering In The Wilderness Like The Children

of Israel. Most of oldsters died off and never allowed into the promised land because their hearts still longed for Egypt, and their task masters having never adjusted to the freedom God was willing to prepare for them.

There are those that are so conditioned or institutionalized that when give them a chance to fend for themselves, they are unable to make the adjustment to the outside world. Freedom is hard to those that have had the state provide their necessities for them.

The Fox News, Bill O'Reilly, Shaun Hannity couch potato conservatives living in their 50's, sixties, seventies and eighties are the worst to convert to the ideas of liberty, The spent too many years allowing the MSM feed them their daily fix of the left, right paradigm. Many of them are dependent of the government (social security) to make it in this life. The public schools may prepare you for a factory job, but what we need are better ways to prepare oneself for life without the dependency of the state food trough..

As a 63 year old 'oldster'

I take exception to that. I voted Ron Paul in 2008 and in the primaries this year. If he is on the ballot in November (and I hope he is) I will vote for him then also. My daughter who is 30 voted McCain in 2008 and Santorum in this years primary. She thinks Ron Paul is an idiot who wants to do away with money.
Perhaps you should concentrate on the older young people and start realising that there are a LOT of 'oldsters' that support Ron Paul. Don't stereotype people, we are all individuals!

we are

..on the same elder boat.

I am quite sure Ron Paul has voting supporters of all ages, and was strong among mature adults 30-60 in various polls I followed.

Ron Paul ... forever.

Note that telephone polls are

Note that telephone polls are biased the other way. They can't call cellphones, while a significant portion of the "millennials" don't have landlines and use cellphones exclusively.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Fix the typo

Hard to ignore a major typo in the first paragraph:

"and a three-time candidate for President of the United States: as a Libertarian in 2008 and as a Republican in 2008 and currently in 2012."

The first date should be 1988. Fix this, and improve the credibility of the entire article.

Diebold fraud
