Rasmussen Polls for Ron Paul 3rd Party Run
Ron Paul Ties Obama @ 42% in Head to Head Match-up: May 2012 Poll
LAKE JACKSON, Texas, Mar 22, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul polls better against President Barack Obama
in a head-to-head matchup than establishment-choice moderate Mitt Romney, according to a recent survey conducted by Public Policy Polling.
The poll found that Obama defeats Romney by 4 percentage points (48-44) and Newt Gingrich by 8 percent (50-42). While Santorum also joins Paul being
within striking distance of the President by 3 points (48-45 and 46-43 respectively), Paul brings Obama a noticeable 2 percentage points further away
from the 50 percent a candidate seeks to win on election day. Considering the +/- 3.3-percentage point margin of error, Paul in this poll is
statistically tied for the presidency.

Funny, I can't find a report on the official Rasmussen site showing Obama tying Paul in a matchup.
I went to the inforwars.com article and it cited the link below as it's source.
And the above link does not provide any other source to prove credibility of the claim it makes.
I also went to the Marketwatch.com article and did not see any source cited. What I did find at the bottom is this, "Authorized and paid for by Ron
Paul 2012 PCC Inc. www.RonPaul2012.com".
If someone can find a legit Rasmussen report, please show me.
Anyways, I don't think the OP has to worry too much. Alex Jones is full of bull-hockey. Interesting how everything he blabbers about has a way of
inducing anxiety and panic. I'd wager he probably makes a fortune of off his fearmongering. Fear is a powerful motivator. This is common knowledge.
