    In media internationally Ron Paul is the biggest name and he gets most publicity, I’ll say he is the biggest name after Obama internationally.And on the internet everyone seems to support him.
    But do he have a strong campaign supporting him, that can for instance pick up the phone and call old people without internet access?
    Most old people are brainwashed by fox and corporate-media, so they wiev Paul negatively.

    So have you talked to seen or being called by any Ron Paul supporters that wants you to vote for him IRL? (IRL=in real life)?
    Are his campaigners/supporters so convincing that you changed to Paul?

    Ron Paul is a sideshow and a second tier candidate

    Yes. He has a very organized campain. Where he lacks is in funding. The establishment can literally print as much money as they need to while Ron Paul recieves no corporate funding.

    He has a very strong grassroots campain that is working well, the mainstream media ignores him though. Two hours at the gym this morning and FOX flat out ignored him. Talked about everyone but him.

    Its Ron Paul vs established power, but almost anyone that knows who he is is supporting him.

    has between 20-25% support from the Republicans. That's pretty much it.

    It’s not ‘brainwashing,’ it’s common sense. Goes for young and middle-aged people, too.

    Paul is a joke, he is not now nor has he ever been a serious presidential candidate, and he’s wholly unqualified to be president.

    RW fears Paul because Paul polls in a dead heat in the GE with Obama and Paul would actually end the wars and balance the budget.

    It's so sad, I like you Avatar but when it comes to Paul you say some stupid shit... Even if you give Paul that 25% it's more than everyone esle running but Mitt, who only pulls about 30-35%.....
