This poll is for non Ron Paul supporter Republicans. I know that Ron Paul supporters like to vote enmasse in every poll, so I have made the poll public. We know who most of the Ron Paul regulars are. Good for you for your support, but the purpose of this poll is to gauge rather or not establishment Republicans (for lack of a better term) can get behind him.

If your choice is Obama or Paul, who will you pull the lever for? (Keep in mind that I think Fox News and other rightwing news outlets will probably all but endorse Obama if Ron Paul gets the nomination.)

Just the possibility that Fox News might endorse Obama if it's between Obama and Paul, should be incentive for any Republican to vote for Paul. We all know what Obama's track record is.

Fair enough poll, I just take umbrage at you calling Republicans who aren't supporting Ron Paul as "regular".

I am a "regular" Republican, as well.

Fox (and a lot of other "conservatives") are going to be put in a very tough spot if Ron Paul actually wins the nomination. For all of the talk about Obama being evil incarnate, the truth is he does the establishment's bidding much more reliably than Paul would. Some very rich and powerful interests would much rather see Obama than Paul in the White House.

Three, sorry about that. I truly am not trying to be biased in my wording here. I'm just trying to capture the "non Ron Paul" Republican vote here.

Perhaps he means "non-libertarian" Republicans, lol.
I can't vote on this poll, however, I think that the bias against Obama is so great, they will vote for a toaster versus Obama.

I love a lot of Ron Paul's ideas. Unfortunately, I cannot support him with his views on what we should do about countries like Iran.
