He is certainly making an impression!

Wonder what this may or may not mean in the primary. People keep comparing Dean's defeat after looking good with internet support to the way the pre-primaries are going now.

And of course 3M ain't hay.

This is fake. The total has been compromised. Its one spammer who has donated a dollar 3 and a half million times.

As long as Paul doesn't let out a big glassy eyed WWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, I think he'll be okay.

According to the AP it is 3.8 million and still flowing in like the Amazon river.

Total in the first 36 days of the 4th quarter, is at 6.78 million and I suspect by morning it will be over 7 million as the monies are tallied. This is one heck of a wealthy spam bot. I believe this is a one day GOP record if I am not mistaken.

Remember remember the fifth of November.

quick update from just an hour ago. I thought he would hit 7 million by morning, but his campaign has already hit that amount and heading to 7.25 million by midnight tonight.

Ron Paul is the hot candidate right now. Young America LOVES him ~ and they are, after all, our future leaders. Maybe we should be listening to them....

The graph shows they raised over $4 million for the day. And a blog post on Ron Paul's official site, posted at about 10pm, says they raised over $3.8 million from more than 35,000 donations. That's an average of more than $100 per donation.

The support for Ron Paul is real -- not just a bunch of hackers who spam online polls as the mainstream media would have you believe.

I do not like Paul, in some ways I think he could be even worse then Romney/Thompson/Mcain/Giuliani

People like Paul because they think its cool to like someone who isnt mainstream and he voted against the war(which is a plus), if they knew half of the things he stood for or didnt stand for they wouldnt vote for him
