    NBC/Marist Poll: Ron Paul Best Chance to Beat Obama - informationliberation

    The RCP poll(s) which is pretty accurate with it's averaging system, has the following data...

    Obama OVER Romney at a +1.5 spread

    Obama OVER Gingrich at a +6.9 spread

    Obama OVER Paul at a +7.7 spread

    So far all the Major Managed News Media(MMNM) hype has Gingrich as the frontrunner in the primary. But, the NBC/Marist poll shows Ron Paul polling as the #1 contender to take out Obama. The RCP poll...

    RealClearPolitics - President Obama vs. Republican Candidates

    ...shows president Obama as holding the office as POTUS... but barely(too close to call) in a heated contest with Mitt Romney. Both Gingrich(the front runner in the primary so far) & Paul in 3rd place are well down & out of the margin of error for taking out president Obama.
    Unless the polls are completely rigged the info presented above does not compute??? I mean it's contradicting itself. Do U agree???

    Say what you want about Obama, but Ron Paul is nuts. I think he has a realistic take on foreign policy, but everything else that man says is crazy. He wants to get rid of the EPA and the Department of Education. He expects students to pay their way through college out of pocket, which, of course, is impossible. That alone makes him nuts.

    The reason tuition is so high is the federal subsidy. It's like the housing bubble. Eventually it implodes. Get a clue. But Ron Paul's foreign policy is rainbows and unicorns.
    You have it completely backwards.

    :lol:

    Wow. Why am I not surprised that you even manage to get Paul's flaws the wrong way around. His stance on foreign affairs is bordering on dangerously stupid.

    I am not against revamping the department, but to get rid of it entirely is just crazy. As far as America's interest goes, maybe his isolationist mentality is un-American, but it is realistic. More realistic than any of the other candidates.

    LOL ... I love watching status quo Ds and Rs fretting over Ron Paul. He's opposed to both the welfare state and the warfare state.

    When people from opposite sides agree that someone else is crazy, generally that person really is crazy.

    Sorry to break it to you: Ron Paul will never get nominated. And Ron Paul is crazy.

    coming from you ....

    Anyway. He exposes the hypocrisy and power-mongering of both major parties. I expect him to get called much worse than 'crazy' over the next year or so.
