We all know that Ron Paul placed second in the Republican primary in NH. What many do not know is that he also placed second in the Democratic primary behind Obama. The New Hampshire Secretary of State published the full results of the primary, including write-ins, and Ron Paul also won the #2 spot in the Democratic Primary. Obama, of course, is the runaway winner for the Democratic primary.





To be sure, sitting President Barack Obama bested Paul with a 49,480 to 2,273 tally, but that Ron Paul placed so highly in rank tells us a few things. First, nearly twenty-three hundred New Hampshire voters got out and drove to a polling station, knowing they were going to cast a write-in vote, knowing that it was in a primary where no delegates could be assigned to write-in votes, but as a straight protest vote.






Second, Ron Paul is the second most popular candidate among Democrat voters in NH. This will be crucially important when the general election rolls around. Ron Paul already won 50% of the Independent vote in the Republican primary. The ability to build consensus and pull in Independent and other-party voters is essential to achieve a victory in the general election. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama are all alumni of the #2 spot in their respective New Hampshire primaries.

Hence, why I say that Ron Paul should run as an independant if the GOP doesn't nominate him.

Honestly, if they did nominate him, I honestly see him beating Obama. He has very strong bi-partisan support.

Ron Paul will be the next Potus.

He is bulletproof.

Mitt Romney, his only threat, will fall after a certain scandal is revealed in the coming months, causing his voters to desert him.

If I have to guess, it will be one of his former female employees accusing him of sexual misconduct in the past.

But Ron Paul has a better way of winning the presidency if he runs under the GOP. He gets the vote of the Republican as well as the independents. If he runs as independent, those loyal to GOP might vote to the GOP candidate and not Ron Paul.
