Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas known for his libertarian views, ran for president in 2008 but was never a serious contender for the GOP nomination.
The announcement of Paul's win, a surprise victory unlikely to have a major impact on the 2012 presidential contest, drew a volley of loud boos from the CPAC audience.

Expect Ron Paul to win every unscientific poll, every online poll, and raise ungodly amounts of campaign cash. Then when the adults actually vote he ends up with 1% or 2 % just like in 2008.

The smear campaign against Ron Paul is going to kick into HIGH GEAR.
He'll be named everything in the book. They will try to destroy him on Fox News.
Someone should tell Eurisko that Sarah Palin got only 7 percent!

Ron Paul is currently the only man living regardless of age that I would vote for

The Republicans will ignore Ron Paul as usual. I think Ron Paul should run as a third party candidate if he really wants a chance. Independent or even a new party yet to be named. If the American people want to send the political machine in Washington a message we should all get behind a third party.
