TRENDING: Conservative leader discounts Paul win
(CNN) - The president of the Family Research Council characterized Rep. Ron Paul's weekend win in the Values Voter Summit straw poll as "an outlier."
Tony Perkins, who heads the social conservative group, said the Republican presidential candidate influenced the results by busing supporters to the event, proving his 37% support is not reflective of social conservative backing nationally.
Rep. Ron Paul raised more than $1 million this week for his presidential campaign through another “moneybomb,’’ as he calls them—a technique pioneered by Paul supporters that uses Internet appeals to gin up thousands of small contributions on a single day.
This one, to mark Constitution Day on Sept. 17, raised about $1.4 million.
It was the fifth “moneybomb” of the 2012 cycle for the Texas congressman; the largest haul, of $1.8 million, came on Aug. 20 and marked the candidate’s 76th birthday.

Rep. Ron Paul knows he's not the most silver-tongued in the field of 2012 presidential candidates, something that's been painfully obvious during the recent gantlet of televised debates. "At times I've been criticized for my lack of ability to give public speeches and all these other things," he said at an August campaign stop in New Hampshire. "But I'll tell you what, where I get my energy is from the people like you who are energized because of the very valuable message. I've never backed off on the message."

One of the biggest fears the progressive, liberal, socialist establishment has is that the general public will catch a glimpse of presidential candidate Ron Paul and his message.

So much for that predicted epidemic of "Texan fatigue."
Gov. Rick Perry leads by double digits in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, according to one poll due today. But that's not the most surprising news.
