LAKE JACKSON, Texas – Today, 2012 GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul again took first place in a straw poll at a major conservative gathering. The Republican Leadership Conference held in New Orleans was the setting for Congressman Paul’s latest victory, winning with 40 percent of the vote over the rest of the Republican field.
“This win is just the latest indicator of how the majority of American opinion is turning in Ron Paul’s direction,” said Jesse Benton, Paul campaign chairman. “Listening to all the other speakers and candidates, you hear them saying the things that Dr. Paul has been saying for years, and they are saying it because they know that’s what Americans are looking for right now.
Why does he continue to run as a Republican when he KNOWS hsi own party despises him and will always marginalize him?

A poll by Rasmussen or any of the other polling companies is far more accurate than these straw polls.

As for Ron Paul, It's unlikely he will win. I'm not saying that because I don't like him, it's just been proven in the past that whenever someone runs (that's for the people) they ALWAYS lose...

Care to substantiate your claims? Otherwise it just looks like a sad attempt to associate Ron Paul with the radical left.
