Ron Paul could beat Obama?

According to an August 18th Gallup poll of registered voters, a head-to-head between Ron Paul and Obama gives Paul 45% and Obama 47%. (By the way, "don't knows" usually break for the challenger).

Wow.

Elites would never let Paul become President. If lack of financial support, media discrediting, or pinning a scandal on him failed to do the trick, somebody would put a bullet in his head.

    All Republican candidates get similar percentages against Obama, so it's not really about the person.

    These are the kinds of poll results one gets when people are truly pissed about the state of things.

    Most people who will actually turn out to vote don't even know who Ron Paul is. They couldn't pick Rick Perry out of a line-up. While they might find Mitt familiar when shown his pic, they'd not be able to state his name.

    Yeah, it's not about the person, it's about Barry, the Edsel.

  3. You guys are right, but Obama is not the least popular. Palin--who is certianly known--only gets 33% against Obama.

  4. I'm keeping a running tally of the electability statistics at:

    PS: An interesting thing happened right after I announced that site on a neocon-dominated forum. Ron Paul's Intrade measure of electability shot up from around 80% to 110% almost immediately. The market is thin enough that someone with a moderate amount of money to throw away can discredit the Intrade ratios.
