None of the other mooks are worth considering. Ron Paul will get my vote regardless.
Ron Paul is getting attention because he is the first politician in many generations who is not chock full of impacted fecal matter. After the unimaginable hubris and incompetence of the current administration, people are finally ready for a change.
No one else will get my vote, either, even if I have to write in Dr. Paul's name on the ballot. I honestly don't believe the country can handle four more years of a president like Bush (or Cinton, or Obama, or Guliani, or McCain, or... pretty much anyone who is not Ron Paul, including Fred Thompson).
Ron Paul has raised more money than every other Rep candidate except Rudy and Mitt Cheezeball. So I love hearing he has not chance. If he does not get the nomination and runs as an independent I will vote for him again.
I can see the commercial media now. Nothing to see hear folks, Ron Paul has no chance, carry on.... Nothing to see here...."
Ron Paul in Iowa
Just made my donation. Does anyone have any info as to where Dr. Paul is in the polls, and if he is picking up any numbers?
They only appear to be tracking the top four, or reporting the top four.
Fred Thompson is on top or Rudi by 3% as of the 3rd of this month. There should be a new one released today or tomorrow.
I don't really care much about polls, especially at this point. Name recognition is the biggest hurdle for Ron. The fact that he's getting so much support from individuals, relative to the number of people that even know who he is, shows that he has the best chances of all the GOP candidates. At some point, there will be more people that know who Ron is than don't, and at that point he will have more supporters than the other goons and the so-called scientific polls will reflect that. After that, its game over...because it seems like most of Ron's criticism comes from people that let the polls decide for them anyway.
Edit: This is not true:
5. Ron Paul
Perhaps you were talking about this quarter?
Paul has more cash in hand than MCcain which is pretty big news. He did not raise more than MCcain.
Can we merge this thread with the Mega-thread please?
How about merge it to /dev/null?
And I even donated to the Paul campaign.
McCain's bout broke.
That one was closed.
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
One reason I like Dr. Paul.

There are other positions of his that I like, but for me this is important.
He needs to go on the Colbert Report a few more times to get the Colbert Bump.
Well polls might not mean anything, but this still isn't good news for Ron Paul:
"Giuliani has the support of 30% of "Republicans and Republican leaners," vs. 28% a month ago; Thompson comes in with 20%, vs. 19% in June; McCain has 16%, vs. 18% a month earlier.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney remains in fourth, at 9% vs. 7% in June.
The current numbers for the rest of the Republicans included in the survey: Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, 6%; former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, 2%; Rep. Duncan Hunter, 2%; Rep. Tom Tancredo, 2%; Sen. Sam Brownback, 1%; Sen. Chuck Hagel, 1%; former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, 1%. Neither former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore nor Rep. Ron Paul registered any support."
How is that possible?
I have doubts about the veracity of the poll. Look at the sample size.
Rasmussen has always had a rep for being uncanny in accuracy. I know what you mean though, you wouldn't think so by the numbers but they sure have been spot on in the past.
Republicans like big government.
Here is a good comparison of the candidates, DOCTOR NO, THE 3 MUSKETEERS & THE 7 DWARFS:
The portion of the article about Ron Paul and Fred Thompson I quote, as the balance of the candidates seem to be unpopular here at THR:
By this you only show your ignorance of statistics, just like a few weeks ago, when you tried to make the same argument. Did you even click on the link I provided, explaining the nature of sampling, with a calculator that would show what sample sizes would provide specific confidence levels?
You could perhaps question the randomness of the sample, but the sample size is sufficient.
I think the "randomness" of the sample is in question. Many folks today do not use a land line, and those that do use caller ID to screen calls.
This is a sample of those that sit home on the weekend and answer.
Hardly a representative sample of the population.
The evidence is in Dr. Pauls significant increase in donations, and McCains loss of support. Romney has just used 6 million of his own money to prop up his campaign. I can't understand Rudys numbers, other than people know the name but nothing about him.
Separate names with a comma.
