Despite the best efforts of the Republican establishment and the douchebags on Fox News, Ron Paul continues to gain momentum. It is becoming clear to many people that the three extemists in the GOP primaries will never be able to attract the young, poor, moderates, or anti-interventionists in a general election. The only candidate that appeals to a wide enough number of voters and is telling the American people the truth is RON PAUL. Contribute today. Volunteer today. Tell someone about Ron Paul today.

Paul leads Obama in national poll
In a poll result that is likely to get little coverage in the Conservative Establishment media, presidential candidate Ron Paul now leads President Obama in a hypothetical matchup of 2012 presidential hopefulls. Congressman Paul bests President Obama 43 to 41 percent in this Rasmussen Reports poll released on Monday morning. Mitt Romney also leads the President by two percentage points in this poll. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich trail the President by two and ten points respectively. President Obama’s overall approval rating has dropped to forty-five percent in this poll.
This is the first time Congressman Paul has lead President Obama in a Rasmussen Reports national poll.
There is a large gender gap revealed in this poll. Dr. Paul does much better with men against President Obama than he does with women. Paul leads Obama by thirteen points among men, but trails Obama by eight points among women, which is the greatest gender gap for any of the candidates. This is not surprising as Congressman Paul has shown an uncanny ability to attract Millennial male voters who are inspired by his freedom-centered message.
Congressman Paul is regarded as a Millennial generation champion, and an avenger for the middle class. Younger and less affluent voters are most likely to be affected by a deteriorating economy and a massive national debt. Congressman Paul’s serious economic reform plan appeals to people who believe it is necessary to make dramatic changes now in order to create the potential for a prosperous future.
Congressman Paul has jumped to the lead in this poll despite a concerted attack from political pundits on conservative television, blogs, and talk radio. Erick Erickson, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, and Bill O’Reilly have been particularly dismissive of or hostile to Congressman Paul. Paul’s surge in this poll despite these coordinated Conservative Establishment attacks may be further evidence that their popularity is diminishing as Paul’s star is rising. There is a new energy in the conservative movement.
