New Poll: Ron Paul at 13% in New Hampshire

Public Policy Polling just released the exciting results of their latest 2012 poll in New Hampshire:

Mitt Romney continues to look like an overwhelming early favorite for the 2012 New Hampshire primary but the most surprising thing about our newest set of numbers there may be that Ron Paul’s in third place, outpolling Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin (albeit by small margins.)

Romney leads the way with 31% to 14% for Newt Gingrich, 13% for Paul, 12% for Huckabee, 9% for Palin, 3% for Tim Pawlenty, and 1% for Mitch Daniels.


Ron Paul’s numbers challenge the general assumptions about his support a little bit. With voters who identify themselves as Tea Partiers he’s in fifth place with only 9%. With voters who don’t identify themselves as such he’s in second place with 15%. His son, Rand Paul, has been to some extent the poster child for the Tea Party on the national level but that’s not equating to support from that quarter for his dad. Paul’s numbers also suggest some appeal to the anti-Palin wing of the party. With GOP primary voters who consider a Palin endorsement to be a negative he’s running almost even, getting 23% to Romney’s 25%. But he polls at only 6% with people for whom Palin support is a plus.

    YOU-TUBE “Run Mitt Run” this is a video of Good ole Mitt saying NO to someone in a wheel chair and who is IN PAIN by saying he can’t have medical marijuana, stick to the synthetic!!! The best part of the clip is that after the question he turns around and RUNS from a man in a wheel chair and the audience CALLS HIS @$$ out

    So keep running Mitt on that bridge to no where!!!!!

    Constitutionally, legislatively, and morally, Ron Paul has no equal. His 22 year voting record speaks for itself.
    Mr. Paul has not survived in politics for 22 years and maintain the ethics and morality he has by being anything other than stellar.
    If You refute the above comment, then I please invite You to listen to him speak about key issues. It is amazing how well he comes across because he doesn’t have to remember lies like other politicians. He understands what is happening in the world and knows how to apply the basic principles of liberty to achieve the real change that America so desperately deserves.
    American to American we are all on the same team. So I present Mr. Ron Paul as my Candidate for 2011 and invite anybody to meaningfully and respectfully debate why he is not the best for American and its people in 2012.
    Ron Paul = A real change, not for special interest, but for America’s Interests!
    Thank You for Your time
    Ron Paul 2012

    Mitt Romney ran on a pro-choice platform in his early career and when asked about it later, lied. Why would anyone vote for a known liar?

    A Revolutionary Idea: Ron Paul & Dennis Kucinich officially drop party affiliations and announce that they are running as independents for the presidency in 2012 as President and Vice President respectively, Paul-Kucinich 2012.

    Before you constructively criticize, I submit this is the only hope at a true chance to have a sane foreign policy, sound money, and a path to beat the Obama re-election machine.

    Canadians would love to see Ron Paul for Pres. of the US. We are sick of our Prime Ministers taking their leads from prohibitionists and warmongers in the White House. If our leaders are going to be lapdogs anyway, then let it be on Ron Paul’s lap.

    Another freedom lover from Canada! Ron Paul for President.

  • I sure hope Ron Paul will run for President in 2012. I hope you will get the momentum going this Fall. I will support you and vote for you no matter what.

    “Romney leads the way with 31%” These early straw polls are useless.

  • @JustHearSay


    I think that Dr. Paul will probably run. I think that right now he is concentrating on being re-elected to his Congressional seat. I hope that after the November elections he will make his announcement be it yea or nay.

  • FreedomLover

    When will Ron Paul make his announcement if he is even RUNNING in 2012?!!?
    We need to get momentum going NOW. If he announces NOW he is running it would favor him LARGELY.
