Ron Paul Polls Second In New Hampshire
September 22, 2011 by Bob Livingston
Representative Ron Paul has gained 6 percentage points since June and is now in second place in a poll of New Hampshire voters, turning on its ear the mainstream media’s hopeful prediction of a two-man race between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.
According to the Suffolk University/7News (WHDH-TV) poll, Romney, who has a home in the Granite State, is polling at 41 percent. But Paul came in a 14 percent, followed by Jon Huntsman at 10 percent and Perry at 8 percent. The other candidates trail Sarah Palin — who isn’t even an announced candidate – who polled at 6 percent.
Ron Paul is the only candidate who will do the things necessary to turn our country around, and a strong showing in the first two contests — Iowa and New Hampshire — will turn the campaign on its head. All the other candidates will maintain the status quo and ensure the collapse of U.S. economy.
Trying to take advantage of his new-found momentum, the Paul campaign announced a $1 million ad buy over the next few weeks. It will run nationally on Fox News during tonight’s debate.
