Good News, Bad News for Rand Paul in New 2016 Poll...

Neocon Jennifer Rubin says (WaPo) that a new poll shows that "Rand Paul is taking on water."

The conclusion of  the Kentucky Courier Journal is that the poll results are a mixed bag for Rand:
First, the good news for Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul: he is gaining on former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in a hypothetical 2016 presidential match-up.

Now, the bad news: Paul is behind some other contenders in support among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents and his standing in the tea-party wing of the Republican Party has eroded considerably.

Those are a couple of takeaways from a new Marist Poll released Thursday.


  1. This says to me that there might be room for his libertarian-lite themes with the general public but not with the insane and bloodthirsty "kill an Arab Christian for Israel" Republican base.

  2. Just from my Facebook experiences, liberals and Democrats would cheer if Cliven Bundy and his family were slaughtered by federal agents just like the Republicans cheer when thousands of Arab civilians living in a concentration camp are killed by Israelis. These people are not in the market for freedom. They are in the market for someone to slaughter their perceived enemies. We are an impediment to their desires.
