Zogby’s Director of Communications and polling analyst Fritz Wenzel says that Congressman Ron Paul is the strongest of the Republican frontrunners to go up against Hillary Clinton, underlining the fact that the rest of the field are just ringers as the establishment prepares to install Clinton and prolong the Bush-Clinton power monopoly.
“Among Democrats, yes, he would be a much stronger candidate than any of the other three (Romney, Giuliani, Thompson)” Wenzel told the Alex Jones Show yesterday.
A new Zogby poll commissioned by Jones Productions found Ron Paul the GOP winner in a blind poll that included Democrats, Republicans and Independents nationwide. “He is anti-war and the majority of Democrats are anti-war, he has some other ideas and policies and stances on issues more attractive to Democrats, particularly conservative Democrats,” said Wenzel.
“Even among independents, he is far and away a more attractive candidate,” he added.
As we have highlighted before, Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who will not seek to lead the U.S. into a military confrontation with Iran, something that leading Democrats Obama, Clinton and Edwards have all vowed to keep “on the table.”
Ron Paul voted against the war in Iraq and the Patriot Act, both of which were supported by Hillary Clinton.
Every other Republican candidate besides Ron Paul stands no chance of coming out on top if they go up against Hillary Clinton for the 2008 presidency.
Wenzel agreed that Ron Paul’s momentum is something that outstrips all the other candidates and gives him a real chance of performing well.
“He’s right on schedule,” Wenzel said. “He’s making all the right moves, going in the right direction…at a time when other candidates are not moving.”
Wenzel based his analysis on recent nationwide polls that show Ron Paul could win in New Hampshire and find his support intensifying with room to gain.
“Here’s why his timing is almost perfect. He’s moving up…but it’s not so early that he’s going to get a big backlash,” Wenzel added.
“6 weeks to 8 weeks out before an election is about the time if you’re going to make a big move from the back to the front– that’s when you want to make it,” he concluded.
