...contributions don't add up... Ron Paul's Latest 'Money Bomb' - Interviews - Your World with Cavuto - Fox News I realize that there are a LOT of big government repub constituency advocates, but there is also a 'fair' amount of small government repubs among the GOP constituency. I would think that Ron's ballot support numbers are certainly higher than the 8% shown on the Gallup poll link below... Election 2012 Polling and News, Republican Presidential Candidates, Obama, Interactive Polling Data Even if they were not the Gallup poll has the 'Grinch' in 2nd place with a ballot support of only 7%! Even as speaker of the house Newt Gingrich was never popular with the constituency & much the less today. The Gallup poll even has Michele Bachmann ahead of Ron Paul despite her ballot support of only 5%. Bachmann WAS a strong candidate in the opening round but a series of stupefying bungled fiasco's have all but retired her campaign out to pasture... Tea Party Love Boat Going Down: Bachmann and Pearce Have Last Dance on Sinking Ship in Arizona « SpeakEasy I would say that Mitt Romney leading at 30% ballot support followed by Herman Cain at 15% to 20% & climbing(Gallup says 18% & I agree with that), followed by Ron Paul at about 17% for the top three GOP candidates. Rick Perry is rapidly following Michele Bachmann into obscurity, & his Gallup poll ballot support rating of 15% seems ridiculously high to me. The different polls seem all over the map... RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - 2012 Republican Presidential Nomination ...but this latest Gallup poll seems to be entertaining the Twilight Zone, unless I am reading it wrong. I mean according to these 'scientific' polls the plus & error margin must be around 10 to 15 percent!!! What's your take on these polls accuracy???
