Election 2012

The Rise of Ron Paul

Ron Paul has caught Gingrich in New Hampshire.

The poll of polls puts them now only 0.7 percent apart, basically a tie for second. The two most recent polls show Paul edging ahead. In a very independent and libertarian state, where independents can vote in the GOP primary, this could get interesting if Paul gets a boost from Iowa. Against Obama, Paul is now the second strongest candidate in the poll of polls, after Romney.

Maybe the racist newsletters are resonating with Republican voters. I wonder if Romney will claim he published racist newsletters in order to get a bump with the radical libertarian wing of the party.
