Paul Holding Strong Leading Into First Primary

Paul Holding Strong Leading Into First Primary

The mainstream media continue to express surprise that the Ron Paul campaign stands firm as today’s first-in-the-Nation primary gets underway.

The final University of New Hampshire survey before the contest put Mitt Romney in a position of favor among voters in the State, leading with 41 percent. The second place spot is taken by Paul, with 17 percent, followed by Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman who are tied for third with 11 percent.

Another poll from Suffolk University/7 News illustrates a smaller gap between the leaders with Romney polling at 35 percent and Paul at 20 percent.

An article published in The Washington Times on Monday points out that Paul’s popularity is shaping up to be a major force to be reckoned with within a fractured Republican establishment, and that the devotion of the candidate’s “never-say-die” supporters should not be marginalized.  In his work, the author, William Kelly, offers one main reason for Paul’s popularity, “freedom is popular.”

Paul’s son, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), said Monday that he believes his father has a remote chance of pulling an upset in New Hampshire today if there is a large showing of independent voters, according to POLITICO.
