Even when Paul was shown to be in the lead in another poll, I never felt complacent and that is still true now. In their frantic attempts to find the anti-Paul candidate, every RINO might be flocking to Romney. At this point, anything can happen, so guess we will have to wait and see.

That said NH is coming up and that will most likely go to Romney, then there are only how many states left, hmmmmm. Come on folks no ones run for the nomination is going to end at Iowa, at least none of the top three, (Romney/Paul/Newt), the rest are already road kill and I have no idea why on earth they are even wasting airtime and money that the others could use to get their message out. Anyway, calm down, there is still a long race ahead, no matter how Iowa turns out for your candidate.
Well holy crap, I agree with Casper AGAIN!

A message to all Ron Paul supporters: the GOP hates you and all that you stand for. I hope Ron Paul runs as a third party candidate, as a message to the GOP establishment.

Ron Paul is not going to run as a third party candidate. It would end his son's political career.

The US Constitution is the foundation for our liberties and the protection of them from a large centralized government. Ron Paul is the only candidate consistently upholding his oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution.

I don't hold men as idols......no idol worship. Just giving the only honest man in the 2012 race his due credit and support.

" Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." ~ Ronald Reagan

I see no other candidate in 2012 fighting to pass that liberty on to the following generations. That is the reality.

The rest of the GOP field is far behind, with Rick Santorum and Rick Perry at ten percent, Michele Bachmann at six percent, and Jon Huntsman at four percent.
Results for both Romney and Paul are the highest they have yet reached in Rasmussen polling. But Scott Rasmussen notes a significant difference between supporters of Romney and supporters of Paul. "Romney leads, with Gingrich in second, among those who consider themselves Republicans," Rasmussen writes. "Paul has a wide lead among non-Republicans who are likely to participate in the caucus."
Poll respondents also say they believe Romney has the best chance of defeating President Obama next year. "Romney is now seen as the strongest candidate against President Obama by 35% of Iowa caucus-goers," Rasmussen writes. "Paul is seen as the weakest candidate by 26%, Bachmann by 21%."

So this one poll, in the face of 3 or 4 other ones, is to be believed and supported by you because it tells you the reality that you and the rest of the GOP establishment loving neocons want to believe? If Ron only had one poll showing him at the top the anti-Paul hystericals on here and in the media wouldn't hold back discrediting it. So since Ron Paul is the RCP Daily average leader in Iowa due to numerous polls showing him firmly in the lead, the neocon establishment is going to ignore them and pump this single poll up as the "truth."
