Poll Reveals Ron Paul is Neck-and-Neck With Obama for 2012 Election

 

Recent polling continues to show that Ron Paul is neck-and-neck with Barack Obama for the 2012 election. Paul scores 46 percent to Obama´s 49 percent revealing a statistical tie with the poll´s 4 percent margin of error.

Against rivals Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, President Obama takes the lead. Obama scores 12 percentage points above Gingrich and 8 points above Santorum. Mitt Romney is the only other candidate besides Paul who statistically ties Obama.

“The survey also demonstrates Ron Paul’s competitive edge against the sitting President in a general election since Paul is the candidate capable of gaining support from independents and disenfranchised Democrats," declared Paul´s Campaign manager.

The only way Obama gets back in is if he uses the same strategy used by G.W. Bush and his puppeteers. Chad comeback?

Obama will be reelected. Not because he´s so good, but because his republican opponents are so worthless. With the exception of Ron Paul. The last ruler of the Persian empire was a mulatto, the last president of the American empire will be the current mulatto president. Guys, you´re doomed. Prepare for something like Yugoslavia´s wars of dissolution. No more abundance and easy living, no more faked "we´re all the same", no more wimpiness. The time has come to separate the goats from the sheep. Judgement day is coming.

You´re full of crap if you think this skewed poll has any relationship to reality. Paul isn´t winning primaries. Poll that.

we need more socialism like we need two assholes you stupid jackass. why on earth would the country that at our LEAST socialistic, was the shinning beacon of the world with the most saught after healthcare and highest purchasing power in our money, and now having seen us turn slowly more socialistic and watch our economy take a dump and our healthcare system become a joke, want MORE socialism? are you even paying attention to whats going on or do you just believe what your idiot liberal news stations tell you? i mean honestly. and as far as Ron Paul not winning primaries, well it doesn´t matter, cause at my count, we already proved that we can win nearly every delegate there is and we know our people will show up to their state conventions and to the national convention. the other guys have no such supporters. they dont´ stand a chance and i can´t f´ing wait for you dipshits to finally see what real Americanism looks like for once. obama, sanctorum, romney, gingrich, all chicken hawks, all turncoats, all lobbyists loving sellouts to the american way. Ron Paul is the only one who cares about you and you repay him and his cause for liberty by asking the government for more toilet paper and a free clamping arm to help you wipe with. im done paying for your tp and so are all the other struggling people. rpftw.

  Socialism isn´t the problem  
 
corporatism is.
And Ron Paul doesn´t give a fuck about people. In his laissez faire system there will be no healthcare to those with thin wallets. Without money in such a system you´re nothing.

That´s a "wonderful" liberty to have.

america had the worlds most saught after medical system in the world before government intervention. doctors gave away free care because they weren´t bogged down with red tape and malpractice suits, and charged the least amount because people paid for their care out of pocked instead of using insurance for the silliest of things, because when the insurance companies pay, doctors are going to charge the most that they can, especially after dealing with all the crap that they do. you cant dispute history, america was once reviled for it´s healtcare, and that was when there was LESS government intervention.

  Out of their pockets?  
 
Capitalists aren´t in to give anything for free unless they can use it to sell their businesses.

Insurance companies are in it for the profits too and do not give a damn whether people have healthcare or not. They´re in it for the Wealthcare.

When once? There are other countries which do have private healthcare and insurance companies but they are regulated so that that the insurance companies cannot even ask about so called "pre-existing" conditions, it´s illegal.

Laissez faire wouldn´t even care whether kids get to school, in fact, it would be great for businesses who could with less government put children back to work.

Laissez faire doesn´t fucking care. It´s indifferent to the suffering of the people.

  Medicare  
 
is much more efficient than the private sector, which isn´t strange because it isn´t there to fill the pockets of shareholders.

My own government buys in large quantities of medicine to get the prices down, of course USA does not do this because they ran errands for the corporations instead.

It´s also a lifestyle thing, Americans need to start eating better and exercising more. If they would do that then billions and billions of dollars could be saved.

Fact: The healthcare system in Europe is much more efficient.

--------------------------

It seems you were a bit frustrated on Valentine´s day. It actually has been confirmed that Ron Paul won at least 11 states.

Remember, the mainstream media was just guessing as to the delegate count. That´s why their delegate counts were so incongruent from station to station. They did nothing more than guesstimate.

As it can so easily be seen, their guesses were far off the mark. When the actual delegate count was tallied, Paul had actually won at least 11 states.

So what you wrote was absolutely not "confirmed 100% accurate".

Actually the very person you are railing against did the exact opposite of what you accuse his ideology of doing.

Dr. Ron Paul actually donated his time and money to helping numerous different minorities and single women who could not afford their own medical care.

If you would like more information, here is a testimonial of black man and his family who was refused fair treatment and harassed at a southern hospital. Only then did a "greedy" laissez faire capitalist named Dr. Ron Paul step in and treat the harassed man and his family for free:

  Sigh...  
 
It doesn´t matter who Ron Paul is, it matters which kind of society he supports.

He has said that there is no right for healthcare, for food or housing.
He´s a property worshiper at first, like almost all wallet people, capitalists are.
