Poll: Ron Paul bests Obama

Poll: Ron Paul bests Obama for the first time nationally

The State Column | Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Fans of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will rejoice upon hearing the following news: Congressman Paul (R-TX) has defeated President Barack Obama in a Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll of general election voters released Monday. This is the first time that Mr. Paul has defeated Mr. Obama nationally. Mr. Paul garnered 43 percent of the votes among general election voters and Mr. Obama pulled 41 percent of the votes.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney also bested Mr. Obama. The Bain Capital co-founder earned 45 percent of the votes and the former Illinois senator brought in 43 percent of the votes. This is the first time since December 2011 that Mr. Romney has led Mr. Obama in a Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll.

While Mr. Paul and Mr. Romney are now favored over Mr. Obama in a general election, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich trail the president. Mr. Santorum lost to Mr. Obama by 2 percentage points and Mr. Gingrich fell to the president by 10 percentage points.

As Mr. Paul deals with the growing number of voices who believe that he is in collusion with Mr. Romney, this poll is an indication that the former Air Force surgeon may be a Republican front-runner.While Mr. Paul trails the Pennsylvania Republican and the Michigan native in the upcoming elections in Michigan and Arizona, the Texas congressman’s victory over Mr. Obama adds to his electability. The Rasmussen Reports poll, which included Republicans, Democrats and Independents, suggests that Mr. Paul appeals to a wide range of voters.

Regardless of the outcomes of the upcoming elections, Mr. Paul has vowed to stay in the race until the Republican convention in August. Mr. Paul’s ability to defeat Obama nationally, however, may convince more voters to support him in the primaries and caucuses.

Rasmussen Reports interviewed 1,500 likely general election voters. The poll is reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Ron Paul Is The Only One Who Will Defeat B. Obama

Click to Watch

Dear ConradP,

According to a just released Rasmussen poll, I lead Barack Obama in a head-to-head match-up.

More and more Americans realize my message of liberty, sound money, and free markets runs in clear contrast to Barack Obama’s economy-wrecking, Constitution-shredding policies.

This poll also shows that fake conservatives Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich would be defeated in a general election because voters are fed up with politicians who sell out their principles for party loyalty.

The Republican Party can’t nominate a candidate who will spend the entire fall campaign apologizing for their Big Government record if we want to defeat Barack Obama.

But in order to get this message out to the voters in the ten states that vote on Super Tuesday, I need your help right away.

Please make your most generous contribution to help my campaign fund our critical Get-Out-The Vote efforts for Super Tuesday, so my campaign can receive as many of the 400 delegates at stake that day as possible.

My consistent, conservative message is exactly what voters who want to replace Barack Obama are yearning for.

As each new flavor-of-the-week of the week emerges, voters take a close inspection of their record and discover that they are nothing more than establishment, status quo candidates.

Rick Santorum rose after Iowa and then immediately nose-dived because voters realized he voted to raise the debt ceiling five times, doubled the size of the Department of Education, supported the budget-busting Medicare Part D entitlement, and helped kill a National Right to Work law.

This is not the record of a conservative and will make him unelectable in a campaign against Barack Obama.

I have never voted for unbalanced budget or to raise the debt ceiling.

And every vote I cast is in accordance with the Constitution.

No one will ever accuse me of changing my positions or selling out my principles in backroom deals because I caved in to pressure to “be a team player.”

None of my opponents can make this claim, they will all lose to Barack Obama if nominated. I am the candidate who can take him on and Restore Prosperity to America Now.

The stakes of this election are just too high to settle for another Big Government nominee who will spend the entire campaign backtracking on their record.

So please, click here to make your most generous contribution and help fund my campaign’s Super Tuesday Push.   Make sure we have every resource available to finish strong on March 6 and acquire every delegate possible.

I hope I can continue to count on your support.

For Liberty,


Ron Paul

P.S.  Super Tuesday is just eight days away!

A new poll just released shows that I am the candidate who can take on and defeat Barack Obama.

Over 400 delegates are at stake in the ten states where voters go to the polls on March 6, and I need your support right away.

Simpson Calls Us Greedy??? Think again Big Al

Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming,

Co-Chair of Obama’s deficit commission,

calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation

as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana…

I think she is a little pissed off!

She certainly tells it like it is!

”Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight..

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk  pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission is proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5.   I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6.   I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again.Why? Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the
American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt. To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” on your incompetence.


Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU.

1.   How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2.   At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3.   How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4.         What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators
called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.
