Pollster John Zogby: “Ron Paul: He’s going to do better than anyone expects. Look to Paul to climb into the double-digits in Iowa. Why? He’s different, he stands out. He’s against the war and he has the one in four Republicans who oppose the war all to himself. Libertarianism is hot, especially among free-market Republicans and 20-somethings. And he’s an appealing sort of father figure. He’s his own brand. All he needs to do is beat a couple of big names in Iowa, then New Hampshire is friendlier territory. After all, the state motto is “Live Free or Die.”">Pollster John Zogby: “Ron Paul: He’s going to do better than anyone expects. Look to Paul to climb into the double-digits in Iowa. Why?

Read the rest on Ron’s can’t-win opponents. Here’s the translation: at the very least, Ron Paul will be a major figure at a brokered convention, and could win the nomination before that.

John, make that: will win. (Thanks to Murray Sabrin.)
