Ron Paul 43%, Obama 41%

For the first time ever, Ron Paul leads Barack Obama in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. In the latest Rasmussen poll, Paul earns 43% of the vote, while the current president attracts support from 41%.

Ten percent (10%) would vote for some other option, a figure that includes 17% of Republicans. Ron Paul leads by 13 among men and trails by eight among women. Paul also picks up 15% of the vote from self-identified liberals.

    I don’t understand why the media ignores Ron Paul so much. Oh wait I know. Their afraid he is going to expose the truth. Just remember…you don’t have to be president to make a change. Go Ron Paul.

    The only way to prevent voter fraud is to get a receipt.

    When I invest into a product — buying a steak at the supermarket per say — they give me a receipt for my investment (shows the item code# and the date and time of my investment (purchasing in good faith, upon accountability by vendor, that I received the right product))!

    Elections MUST be held to at least the same standard, as buying a steak — when people invest into their Right To Vote, give them a VALID receipt for their investment!

    If States can issue millions of Lottery Tickets weekly, that cannot be forged — why not be FORCED to do the same during the rare elections?!

    Without a RECEIPT, what government assurance do you have that your VOTE actually COUNTED…?!

    Dr. Ron Paul has consistently and stubbornly fought battle after battle pushing the ideas that this country was founded and built upon. And as he has done since his arrival in DC, he continues to pick up the pages that are ripped out of the Constitution and tossed in the trash.

    He dusts them off, neatly places them in his folder, and continues to insist that they are the law of the land. And they are—America’s self-interests must determined by rational debate and adherence to our founding principles.

    Mr. Paul is the only candidate that will be seen as a genuine, authentic and bona fide option, when placed aside Mr. Obama.

    Messrs. Santorum, Gingrich and Romney will blend right in…perpetuating the blindness of Blind Sheep.

    Whether or not Ron Paul wins the nomination, we can still put him in the White House, by appointing Ron Paul supporters to the Electoral College, a process I explain in a video:

    Dr. Paul must run as an independent if the GOP does not nominate him, which they will not. I am over 60. It seems that at every Presidential election, I’ve had to decide whom to vote against…Spam 1 or Spam 2. This is the democracy we belligerently try to impose on the world?

    We need to examine the state of our country and decide if the status quo offered by Obama and Romney is what America needs (seems impossible that the American electorate could consider Santorum – that is a horror that I cannot comprehend).

    I sincerely believe that Dr. Paul is our last hope. Even he may not be able to salvage much out of our accumulated mess, given Congress and a malleable, generally uninformed electorate. Still, why not give straight-talking, reason, fiscal responsibility, and peace an opportunity? We’ve enjoyed the opposite for 50+ years.

    Highly rated. What do you think? Thumb up 12 Thumb down 2

    I believe the most people now still don’t know about Ron Paul due to the media ignoring and tarnishing Ron Paul. What Ron needs is to make a real team ahead of every other candidates, to indicate that Ron Paul means business with strong leadership. Also, if the GOP nomination won’t approve RP, RP should announce to run as either the third party or indepent. RP will win since he is only one got all the main issues correct according to the best interest of America. Those rivals will only run this great country derailing onto bankrupcy track. Pray to the awaken of the most people.
