Congressman Ron Paul is leading by a significant margin in Iowa, according to preliminary results of a new TeleResearch poll.
Revolution PAC, the Super PAC formed to support presidential candidate Ron Paul, has received early data from the commissioned Iowa poll. The TeleResearch survey is the first to incorporate disaffected Democrats and Independents who will not vote to reelect Obama and will instead crossover to participate in the Iowa Republican Caucus, as well as likely Republican caucus-goers.
Survey sample size is approximately 2,900, with almost 700 likely Republican caucus-goers. Indiana’s TeleResearch Corp., which has been polling voters for more than 18 years, reports that the margin of error is less than 3%.
Iowa, New Hampshire and California are 3 very different regions. You never hear mainstream media report much on his significant wins in California and the reason for this is simple. California is the largest electoral prize in our land. Any candidate that can win California in a primary has to be considered electable because its amount of delegates could make up for many other states' defeats. So, if mainstream media ever admits that from all the California straw polls conducted, Ron Paul could win this huge electoral prize, it would not take a rocket scientist to figure out that he is very electable, indeed. Any candidate that could garner a win in California and Texas would have a significant amount of delegates to lodge a good ol' fashioned challenge on the floor of the national convention even if these were the only 2 states won.
Not only does popularity in California during a Republican primary matter, but it presents Obama with a very scary thought that possibly Ron Paul could have what it takes to be the first significant Republican threat since Ronald Reagan to win California in the general election. Then when you add into account his home state of Texas, the second largest prize in the land, we can see why this Congressman from Texas is being ignored by mainstream media talking heads on both the left and the right perspective.
