So much for Ron Paul being unelectable huh?
He's in a tie with Obama for 2012, even though 1/3rd of Republicans don't support him, and many don't know enough about him. What is very telling though is that independents prefer Ron 2 to 1. We all know independents are what win elections. THIS WAS THE BEST NEWS IVE HEARD ALL WEEK! What do you guys think of the shifting of tides in our political environment?
Rasmussen has been much more accurate than other polls . Why do leftists hate it so much?
lawrence- you are a moron. This isnt a straw poll......
Slightly - I never said he is going to win, but for him to be in a dead heat with Obama says that he isn't unelectable as the MSM would have you believe.
justgood- Ron Paul has never done well in Rasmussen polling. It is not an internet poll, it is a scientific poll of likely voters. That is why this is more exciting than Ron Paul winning another internet or straw poll. We all know he wins those. I realize media will do their best to discredit him, but what if the people aren't buying it in the same way Kentucky Residents aren't buying the establishment candidate over Ron's son, Rand.

Dr. Ron Paul is VERY electable and the Ron Paul Revolution is gaining more and more support each and every day.
The corporate media networks in the United States, however, will try to marginalize and blackball him even further, just as they did in 2008.
Ron Paul is the only man who truly cares about this country, and people need to rid themselves of their ignorance and choose Dr. Ron Paul, a man of consistent principle integrity, honesty, and the only candidate who has respect for our Constitution.
....or Americans can re-elect a member of the neo-conservative death cult, someone like John McCain or Barack Obama, frauds that will be bought and sold time and time again.Source(s): Dr. Ron Paul 2012! Ron Paul Revolution! Legalize the Constitution! http://www.campaignforliberty.org/

He remains unelectable for now. Supporters were sure he was gonna win in 2008 too. I see the same enthusiasm. Time and time again Ron Paul supporters dominated internet sites and remained confident despite ever more negative odds against the guy. I really don't understand what you're so happy about. Did he win an election? Get a nomination? End the media stereotype? Get the GOP to adopt any libertarian stance? Nope. This is just another day where Ron Paul is irrelevant when most Americans seriously consider politics
As long as the US remains what it is and allowed political discourse stays firmly locked within boundaries the establishment has set, not through formal laws that could be fought, but through media monopolies and decades of propaganda and indoctrination Ron Paul doesn't have a chance in hell to win the nomination of either corporate party, let alone the White House.
When it's time to vote the majority of the few Americans who still exercise that right are believers in the system, hence real outsiders have a disadvantage
The media could easily built Ron Paul and present him as electable, they choose not to. They do it for someone like Sarah Palin, why not Paul? Through all her nonsense and open ridiculization Palin is still presented as a legitimate politician and even presidential candidate. Why???
Even corporate outlets who invite Paul occasionally or often and seem sympathetic always make it clear his ideas are too far out when it 'really matters'. They only put him on and treat him nice to try to recuperate some of his supporters into the system.
The voting public follows. If all Americans who were old enough voted outsiders would have a better shot I think
I don't see a reason to be happy. I think realistically one or two can happen. Gop nominates incompetent neocon and Obama despite being disliked at that point wins the election anyway as the 'lesser evil' or the neocons are back in charge. They own both sides and of those Americans that vote, again that aren't many, a lot still buy into the duopoly
What good is that poll?

Lot's of people. He even stated it himself in interviews at the same time as he states that he's acquainted with the Presidency is an extremely huge longshot, yet he 'needs to bypass the communicate'. Yeah, bypass it in a loopy course. Ron Paul is an total racist and is very almost the nuttiest candidate available in any celebration. i'd vote for Obama earlier Dr. Demento - Ron Paul. Paul thinks maximum folk of blacks are criminals - stated it in his own newsletters over and throughout back. Paul thinks Bush did 9/11 as an interior pastime. Waaaaaayyyy nutty. Paul thinks united statesa. deserved to be attacked on 9/11. stated it himself many, many situations. Paul claims to be a strict constitutionalist, yet does not understand the basics of the way it extremely works. Paul might want to generate conflict all around the globe by bringing back US troops from each and every overseas places base. we provide countless protection and stability in the international. Paul thinks united statesa. must have not in any respect fought the Germans in WWII. Paul thinks Iran must be allowed to construct nukes and they don't threaten everybody. Paul thinks meth, marijuana, cocaine, heroin and LSD might want to all be completely legal because the structure says so. What a lunatic. Paul is very almost as insane as they arrive. he's racist and scary in such countless different methods too.

I think that is great but the mainstream media will never allow Ron Paul ( a non-establishment candidate) to get an even break. They will crucify him, just look at how fox treated him after the debates. The morons that vote with their feet will follow along with whatever mainstream media tells them.

The question is, why are there still so many retards supporting Obama?
Ron Paul would get 100% if the American people knew even an inkling about where the Obama presidency is taking them.

The best thing for us to do now is to try and make the public aware of how our government has been tarnished by oil, money, greed, ect. An old friend of mine was discussing political beliefs with me last week. She said that bush was a better pres than obama. I made her watch a documentary called 911 in plane sight. now she thinks bush is a terrorist. it's a great documentary about the evils of oil and greed in our country.

The pro-Establishment and pro-corporatist media will not give him air time and will engage in black propaganda disinformation campaigns if he ever becomes seriously popular.
He would make for the best POTUS though. No question about that.
Most Americans are idiots who think he's a wacko because the media tells them to think that.

That's great news! I wonder what kind of smear campaign both sides are going to try on him come election time? This time, I think it just might backfire.

Yes, it's just like the time Ross Perot and Bob Dole were CREAMING Bill Clinton in the Rasmussen poll.
