Rasmussen: Obama 41% v. Ron Paul 37%

Ron Paul has decisively broken into the top bracket as a serious contender against President Obama. The polling firm Rasmussen writes:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Paul picking up 37% of the vote, while the president earns 41%. The Texas congressman joins Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, and Rick Perry as candidates within hailing distance of the president at this time.
Romney, Bachmann and Perry? Why can't Dr. Paul beat out that crew?

(Thanks 2 Kurt Davis)


  1. 'Why can't Dr. Paul beat out that crew?'

    Never underestimate the power of stupidity in large numbers.

  2. Why can't Dr. Paul beat out that crew?

    Because the majority of the American People *Still* want to have their cake and eat it too and they don't mind forcing others pay for it.

    A nation of vipers in The culture of death.

  3. It is interesting to note that Obama does better against *all* other Republicans than Dr. Paul; Obama's support is effectively minimized if he runs against Ron Paul. And equally interesting is that the gap between Paul and Obama is the second smallest - only Romney (whom people assume is "the candidate) does better. Not bad for a "fringe" candidate with "no chance" to win the primary...

  4. I love DP, but this is meaningless. The same poll shows Gingrich trailing I'llBombYa only 41-38.

    All it shows is the lemming mentality of the voting boobs in making political choices. They don't think. They simply follow the leader.

  5. Paul has the best chance of securing anti war independent votes. He's the only candidate who's serious about ending the wars, which makes him worth electing in my book.

    Most of the supposed "anti war" leftists will show their true colors by rating domestic wealth redistribution boondoggles above the lives of foreign civilians.

    We libertarians need to expose these frauds. I'm going to be personally calling out any anti-war left wingers who vote for Obama again, and I think it's our duty to shame them as much as we can if they once again vote for that monster.

  6. What do you expect from democrats?

    Democracy produces a society of infantile parasites so there is NO WAY someone like Ron Paul could win. The poll is bogus and I suspect that if a REAL election was held between them, the parasites-class would win at least 65%.

    Freedom AND Democracy never was and never will be.

  7. 'Why can't Dr. Paul beat out that crew?'

    Because Americans love slavery over liberty and freedom.

    Before anyone like Ron Paul is ever elected to national office, Americans will have to learn to hate slavery to government. And that is going to take a very long time

  8. @ Captain Anarchy,

    You should know by know that there is only one true "ideal" that leftists have. It is not eliminating racism, sexism or any other kind of intolerance. It is not fighting for peace or civil rights. They never gave a genuine crap about war or violations of civil rights the likes of which we see now with the TSA or the patriot act. They don't give a crap that the war on drugs victimized mostly blacks and other non-whites.

    Leftists, at the end of the day, want one and only one thing: economic egalitarianism. At the end of the day, as long as there are rich people; as long as there are taxes to collect, as long as there is economic inequality, everything else is merely a front for the underlying motivation of economic equality. That's why EVERYTHING boils down to regulating and taxing the successful and productive.
    Most feminists are really socialists. Most anti-racism fighters are really socialists. Most environmentalists are melons (green on the outside, red on the inside). All of these causes are linked to leftist ideology about economics because economic egalitarianism is the ONLY thing that they really care about in the end. We "can't" achieve all of these liberal side-ideals without destroying what's left of the free market; without regulating and taxing more than is already being done.

    And that is precisely why, despite the fact that libertarians share a number of ideals with liberals, liberals nevertheless hate them as much, if not MORE so than they hate conservatives. Because libertarians are a much bigger threat to economic equality (of outcome) than conservatives who still believe in government regulations and taxes.

    Leftism is economics. The rest is just red herring.

  9. Well said, Tony. Well said.

  10. If you look at the breakdown only Romney polled better than Paul against Obama. Perry and Bachmann didn't poll as well as Paul did. They didn't choose to write it that way, though.
