    Ron Paul is no flavor of the month.

    Asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” about Saturday’s Des Moines Register poll showing him surging into second place in Iowa, the Texas congressman and GOP presidential hopeful said the survey reflects that his positions on economic and foreign policy issues have been “striking a chord with the people."

    “Of course it is very encouraging because we’re getting pretty close to it being within the margin of error,” Paul said. “So, I think we continue to do what we’re doing. We’ve had the flavors of the month up and down so far in this campaign. I’d like to think of myself as the flavor of the decade.”

    The Des Moines Register poll showed former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) taking first in Iowa with 25 percent of likely Republican caucus goers. Paul took second with 18 percent, and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (R) came in third with 16 percent.

    In the newspaper’s October poll, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain (R) and Romney were in a dead heat for first place with 23 and 22 percent, respectively. Paul took third with 12 percent, and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) placed fourth with 8 percent.

    I hope Paul changes the Party, the US could use some conservatives, the Neocons and Progressives have destroyed this country with debt.

    That's what I did... forgot to wash... you see... from what I heard since that fateful day was that he spends a great deal of time sitting on his hands with his thumb up his ass....Wish I would've known that back then.

    They sure have. I think he is helping to change the party. Many wont admit that but i think it is happening. He's the conscience of the Republican Party.

    Oh, that much is obvious. Watching the other candidates parroting many of Paul's positions makes that abundantly clear. It's thoroughgoing bullshit, of course, but they clearly understand that his views are gaining traction with the electorate.

    Well the Neocons have been lying to voters for years pretending to be Conservatives. Ron Paul's just trying to bring the Republican Party back to its Conservative roots. I truly respect the man.
