Default Iowa Poll: Only Ron Paul Can Beat Obama

A new poll out of Iowa suggests that the only GOP candidate to stand a chance of beating Obama one on one in 2012 is Congressman Ron Paul.

The NBC News/Marist Poll places Paul in third place with 17%, just 1% behind Mitt Romney, and well within the margin of error of second place.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich tops the poll with 26%.

Over the past few weeks Paul has consistently polled within the top three in Iowa and New Hampshire, and the latest numbers show he is closing in on the top spot.

Yet the most interesting facet of this latest survey is how the Congressman matches up in a hypothetical head to head with Obama.

The poll finds that the incumbent President betters all GOP competitors except for Ron Paul.

42% of registered voters in Iowa support Ron Paul and 42% back Obama, with 16 percent undecided.

In match ups with Romney and Gingrich, Obama comes out on top by 7 and 10 percentage points respectively, with 15 and 16% respectively undecided.

Paul appeals to those who actually go to primaries. These people are all 40+.

How many people under 40 do you think will vote for Paul?

It will be much less for under 30.

For 25 and under, almost nonexistent.

Are you serious? Did you mistaken Ron Paul as the other favor of the week?

Did you see any of the Paul's rally? Probably not.

If you had, you see most of them from all category. Many of them much younger than 40s.

Paul isn't a flavor of the week. He's more like a bitter aftertaste.

His support is across all ages, types and gender. No area of support is nonexistent for him.

Yet you have not taken a bite.

Are you like a 3 year old, that hates it before they try it?

He has the young vote more than the old vote.
Where have you been?

The last 2 days have been excellent for Dr. Paul and the young vote.
Trumps bashing of Paul and supporting Newt, has boosted Dr. Paul's numbers even more than the media wants you to know.

why do you care? How about telling us what Obama has done to deserve another 4 years and what his plans are for our future? Attacking the Republicans and attacking our choice, regardles of who it is shows you really don't have too much positive to say about the Democrats. oh, that's right you are a Paul supporter...!!!!
