Ron Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll at CPAC -- Again


www.foxnews.com

For the second year in a row, Ron Paul won the presidential straw poll earning 30 percent of the vote.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a 2008 GOP candidate who is expected to run again, came in second place with 23 percent of the vote. Romney won the previous three presidential straw polls before Paul snapped his streak last year.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin got 3 percent.

I take this with a grain of salt. Apparently Romney was winning it a lot and couldn't even manage to win the republican nomination.

That said, it does give Ron Paul some press and attention which is as important as anything in winning an election.

Of mention, Mrs. Palin got a whopping 3%, only one-tenth of Ron Paul.

Tell you friends and family, this man is the best choice. Lower taxes, end wars, end the police state, end the fed!

I hope Ron Paul runs..
It may be harder than some think for them to stop the momentum he has garnished over the last few years..
As you say, very few change their good opinion of him..

Ohh, Palin 3 % ?? Who are those fools that voted? Her family and friends.?

Ron Paul will never win the Republican nomination for president. On first amendment and foreign policy issues he isn’t compatible with Republicans.
Plus no guy against the Fed will ever get close to the white house.

Before I started making the thread, the other one wasn't up. It took me a few minutes to gather the links. Oh well, I'm glad he's getting the attention here!

Yeah, not sure who gave Palin the votes. It seems like Romney is the republican most likely to win.

I hope Ron Paul at least gets to be seen at all of the debates unlike last election.

He may not win, but he's got my vote!

Nowadays politics is a bussiness, parties are companies..
If the Repuplican party sees their only chance of gaining power back is to field Ron Paul, then like any bussiness decision, they will run with it..

Is there really anyone else that stands a chance against Obama?
Paul even had the largest support from the black community and military..
His opinions are reflecting those of the people, infact he was saying them before the people realised what they wanted..

So, Ron Paul won the straw poll again, Does that mean he will quit again? SP's are as meaningless as.....well, as anything. Anyone favored this early on is doomed to fail...just look at historical SPs for reference.

Putting that aside, RP is the conservitives best hope for 2012.

funny how the CPAC is always the most important conservative straw poll right up until Ron Paul wins. I think a fox news poll had the same result, Ron Paul won and the fox news anchor said that their poll was meaningless.

If you like Ron Paul, you better hope he isn’t sincere about the fed. Because if he is and gets close to the white house, I fear for his safety
Of course he might change his ideas on the fed

Man, the same rubbish..
He didn't QUIT..He actually stayed in the campaign even after it was clear McCain had won..

On March 4, 2008, John McCain earned enough pledged delegates to become the Republican presumptive nominee, but Ron Paul decided to continue his run.[12]

en.wikipedia.org...

But I guess it's good (although dirty) politics to call him a quitter..

You can revise history to your favor; yet, the truth remains in the public domain.

Well if true and you ARE an American, you better hope there are 100 more just like Ron Paul to follow after him..
If not, the Fed and the rest of the corrupt financial, political and military system currently in place will do what NO enemy could ever do, destroy America!!

You gotta hand it to the Ron Paul supporters. They are organized. That's what you see here. I witnessed this first hand as a delegate to my state's convention in 2008. They are loud, energetic and insistent and will use any means necessary to forward the Ron Paul agenda. They are also the most impolite group of people I have ever encountered. It;s their way or the highway. They are not in the least "civil."

But Ron Paul's views are in teh left wing of the Republican Party and, frankly, I don;t know why he or his supporters bothers. If they want to run as Libertarians, by all means go run. But here's the bottom line(s).

1. Ron Paul will NOT get the Republican nomination, period.
2. Ron Paul will NEVER be elected President, period.

Here's what Ron Paul CAN do. By running as a thord party candidate he can ensure that Obama gets a second term. Bush 2 got his second term because of Ralph Nader siphoning votes away from Al Gore. Ron Paul can do the same thing.

Bit of a rant there with little facts..
I'm not even in the US..

But then it seems you are all for Obama and the "Change we can believe in"
Good luck with that..

Ron Paul Calls it Quits in Presidential Race




According to a statement made by Paul on his website, he will not be seeking an independent or third party entrance into the White House - which seemed largely impossible any way with his abysmally low polling numbers. He acknowledges that the Republican nomination has become impossibly out of reach, and has therefore stated that he will "focus on his constituents" at home.


www.associatedcontent.com...

Acknowledged that the nomination was an impossibility....how else is one to interpret that other than to believe that he quit? In the face of defeat he conceded...pure definition of a quitter. Winners never quit, despite the preconceived outcome. Again, spin your spin; however, the truth prevails despite your ignorant definition of "quit". BTW, how do you define quit? is quitting forced? Or is it a personal choice? I'm merely curious.

LMAO..Yeah right..
If there's 100 voters and the other guy already has 51 votes then I'd be a quitter if I pulled out..

I gotcha..
