Poll: Ron Paul Even With Obama In Hypothetical 2012 Presidential Election Race

April 19, 2010 by  

Poll: Ron Paul even with Obama in hypothetical 2012 presidential election raceAlthough he garnered just 10 percent of the vote in the presidential primary in 2008, Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) may give Barack Obama a run for his money if the two are matched up in the 2012 presidential election race, a Rasmussen Reports poll has found.

In the hypothetical election, a total of 42 percent of respondents said they would cast their vote for Obama, compared to 41 percent who indicated that they would support the Libertarian congressman.

While Obama earned nearly 80 percent of the Democratic vote, Paul—an outspoken critic of his own party’s leadership and direction—received just 66 percent of the GOP votes, according to Newsmax. However, respondents who were not affiliated with either party overwhelmingly supported the Texas representative, handing him a 47 percent to 28 percent edge over the president.

Many political pundits believe that Paul’s resurgence into the national spotlight is, in part, due to the Tea Party movement, which continues to gain momentum. The news source reports that nearly one-fourth of voters consider themselves supporters of the conservative group’s ideals.
