Election 2012: Barack Obama 42%, Ron Paul 41%

This new poll out today again shows Ron Paul is electable. The Republican party needs to regain their credibility;. the shrinking party needs to take advantage of Paul’s growing support- which is particularly high among young people. Paul can bring back many of the people who have left the Republican party over frustration of the GOP’s hypocrisy in supporting big government.

I would love to see a debate between Dr. Paul and Mr. Obama!


Election 2012: Barack Obama 42%, Ron Paul 41%




Pit maverick Republican Congressman Ron Paul against President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election match-up, and the race is – virtually dead even.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely voters finds Obama with 42% support and Paul with 41% of the vote. Eleven percent (11%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

Ask the Political Class, though, and it’s a blowout. While 58% of Mainstream voters favor Paul, 95% of the Political Class vote for Obama.

But Republican voters also have decidedly mixed feelings about Paul, who has been an outspoken critic of the party establishment.

Obama earns 79% support from Democrats, but Paul gets just 66% of GOP votes. Voters not affiliated with either major party give Paul a 47% to 28% edge over the president.
