A New York Times Iowa primary projection, using figures collated from all the latest poll results and surveys, shows that Ron Paul is the clear favorite to win the crucial first Republican primary set to take place in just 13 days time.


NYTimes Poll: Ron Paul #1 in Iowa with 52%! - YouTube

“These forecasts are formulated from an average of recent surveys, with adjustments made to account for a polling firm’s accuracy, freshness of a poll and each candidate’s momentum,” reports the NY Times, noting that the method “improves accuracy” of the result.

The current figures show Ron Paul’s chance of winning the Iowa primary at 49 per cent, with Romney in second at 27 per cent and Gingrich in third at 15.5 per cent.

I am nervous. Knowing the GOP establishment, I know they won't sit on their hands and let Paul walk away with a win. This will be over when it's over. Before then, anything can happen. Let's continue to work like crazy to get the message out.

They're constantly trying but the other candidates have nothing on Ron Paul. CNN however, has been constantly trying to portray him as anti-Israel. That's their only play and it's going to backfire on them.

Of course Iowa won't matter anymore and the hoopla will be about second and third place.

Don't underestimate the power of a hate ad, even if they are fully lies.

John McCain came in 4th place in Iowa 2008. It means very little.

Now that the establishment has given up on the other Repubs, They'll shift their support back to Obama. That's why MSM is now playing the race card. CNN desperately doesn't want Ron Paul in there. Their bosses in Israel know that Ron Paul won't give them any military support. When Ron Paul is elected President, The U.S. won't be taking orders from Israel anymore.

It's good to see some real figures at last! In the NY Times yet!

But I'm getting quite nervous about how far "they" will go in the attempts to discredit Dr Paul.

These are high stakes indeed and its looking to get very nasty... soon.
