And it's sweet to see in these after-debate-polls, that Ron Paul is kicking some major butt. In one poll, he's at 92%, another 57%, CNN took one down after he reached (I think) 78%...et cetera...
Were those online polls? His supporters usually flood with responses to get him up there. If he were getting that much support in the real world he would have won in 2008.
The more popular he gets, the more he's going to have to stand by things that are very unpopular among many voters. The media will hit him very hard.
The winner of the night – who was also the winner of the first Republican debate – was Ron Paul. At least a few times, some of the candidates referenced Dr. Paul in their answers, and sounded their best when they used similar rhetoric as the Congressman from Texas.
Congressman Ron Paul may not have been flashy, but his answers had substance, he never contradicted himself, nor did he say anything that might have scared away an entire demographic of voters. This couldn't be said about Herman Cain who acknowledged that he would be uncomfortable appointing a Muslim to his cabinet for fear that they might be the kind of Muslims that want to kill us.
