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.

“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.

That was before his meltdown on CNN.

Stay tuned. The Ron Paul ship just hit an iceberg.

I tried to warn yas...those newsletters of his are nothing nice, and they're hanging over his head like an anvil. Anyone with a lick of sense knew that they'd become an issue the moment he became a serious contender. Well he's a contender now, and now the dogs are loose. We'll see now how he handles it. I don't think it's going to go the way he planned.

When you've explained the same thing for 20 fricken years, wouldn't you get a little pissed off, too?

I watched the interview and didn't see a meltdown but then again I'm not part of the National Enquirer crowd.

Stay tuned for liberty and freedom.

First, he didn't come close to melting down, he was cool as ice and walked away professionally. Those newsletters are working in his favor. People do their own research and see how baseless the claims are that he wrote them.

I wish more people brought the newsletters up. This has been great. People are losing credibility left and right trying to support some claim that Ron Paul, the least racist candidate in decades, is somehow a racist.

Follow your own link, that site shows him tied with Romney in Iowa and way behind in New Hampshire.

He didn't really meltdown, but he did get obviously frustrated and take off his mic to end an interview.

When you are doing better in the polls you get media attention including that which is uncomfortable or that is covering topic you've been asking about before, get used to it. Punting didn't paint him in a very good light at all.

People in Iowa are anti-newsatainment (ala CNN). They see Paul as being tired of politically correct bulls**t and they secretly agree with some of the content of the newsletters. They just won't tell you that publicly because it might cause drama, problems in their career, and they'd also be tired of the endless bulls**t they'd receive. This will help Paul among people who are certified Jackass Identification Specialists, something Iowa is chock full of. That Republican Iowa citizen who called Newt an f'in a'hole is further proof of that.

Political correctness is a dying dinosaur, a relic of the 90's and the early 00's when we had a good economy and the time and luxury to drone on about it.
