Despite an utter lack of fair coverage in the mainstream media, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul continues to hold his own in the race for the GOP primary. In fact, Paul may be doing even better than some are aware. According to a survey conducted by Real Clear Politics, Ron Paul is the only other GOP presidential contender besides frontrunner Mitt Romney to have a chance at defeating President Obama in a 2012 presidential race.
The survey is significant as it uses data acquired from polls conducted by Quinnipiac, Rasmussen Reports, Democracy Corps, Associated Press, Time, PPP, NBC News, Wall Street Journal, CNN, Washington Post, Reuters, and Gallup.
On average, Paul scores 41.5 percent support compared to Obama’s 47.6 percent.
The results of the survey break down as follows:
1. Obama vs. Romney: 46.0 (D) 44.3 (R) – Obama +1.7
2. Obama vs. Paul: 47.6 (D) 41.6 (R) – Obama +6
3. Obama vs. Cain: 48.6 (D) 41.2 (R) – Obama +7.4
4. Obama vs. Huntsman: 45.7 (D) 37.0 (R) – Obama +8.7
5. Obama vs. Perry: 49.6 (D) 40.4 (R) – Obama +9.3
6. Obama vs. Gingrich: 48.7 (D) 38.0 (R) – Obama +10.7
7. Obama vs. Bachmann: 51.8 (D) 37.6 (R) – Obama +14.2
A May 2011 CNN poll revealed that Ron Paul had the best chance among Republicans to defeat President Obama in 2012. Following that poll, Sam Mohammadi of The Excavator wrote:
If Paul and Obama were to face-off in a televised debate it is clear who would win: Paul. Obama has no integrity and no ideas of his own. He is a mere puppet, a whore, a cheater. If Obama didn’t have the treasonous banks on Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, the Madison Avenue propaganda machine, the military-industrial complex and the shadow government behind him then he would be a nobody.
