New poll: 58% Favorability - Ron Paul For President
In a new poll conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, matching up presidential candidates Barack Obama and Ron Paul, 45% of one thousand likely voters across America said they would vote Ron Paul for President.
58% of those surveyed have a favorable view of Ron Paul, while just 36% have an unfavorable view. Compare this to Mitt Romney (50% favorable, 45% unfavorable) and Barack Obama (51% favorable, 48% unfavorable). Ron Paul is viewed in a favorable light by significantly more people than Obama or Romney.
The “likely voters” were asked the following question: “Suppose in this year’s Presidential Election you had a choice between Republican Ron Paul and Democrat Barack Obama. If the election were held today would you vote for Republican Ron Paul or Democrat Barack Obama?” The results are:
45% Ron Paul and 47% Barack Obama. (+/-3%)

While many people presume that the Republican Nominee is Romney, the Ron Paul Republicans and Ron Paul Delegates to the Republican National Convention know that this is not true. Romney is trailing further behind in the polls inspite of his campaign spending. Paul has defeated or tied Barack Obama in the past, including the last poll on May 8th. Since then, Paul has been left out of the polling. This poll was commissioned by supporters of Ron Paul and the results show that Ron Paul can beat Obama because, even tho they are statistically tied, Ron Paul has a significantly higher “favorability,” 58% - 51% nationwide.
