I want to make people aware of what I hear about Ron Paul on 'the streets'.
I have a pretty active social life and talk to a lot of people so I get an overall view of it and thought I'd share. I know it may be different in
your State but this is what I notice in mine.
1) A lot of people think "Ron Paul just can't win". I hear that a LOT from people. It's been said over and over and over since the beginning of the
campaign. WHO says the Media doesn't influence people?
2) Republicans like him, but think he's not 'electable'.
3) Independents here take him seriously and like his views. I think he'll get a lot of Independent votes here.
4) I only see TWO kinds of bumper sticker on cars here. Obama and Ron Paul. I've NEVER seen any other in the last 4 years other than ONE Kucinich one.
And right next to it they had a Ron Paul sticker.
5) "Progressives", Hollywood types, actors and 'movie industry types' don't like him, they like Obama. Union types, teachers, public workers....like
On average though I hear a lot of ...'He can't win...I mean I like the guy....he's awesome...he just won't win"
That about sums up the overall sentiment. If you say something enough then you make it true. Sort of a self fulfilling prophecy. Which is why it irks
My take is that Ron needs to start showing better than average numbers in primaries or this feeling/sentiment is just going to get worse. Kinda the
reality of the situation. The average voter isn't aware of delegates or straw polls, that's for politically savvy people these days.
That's at least my opinion.
