Please vote for Ron Paul and keep him in first place. There's a poll on the right hand side of the link: http://2012iowacaucus.com...

* Ron Paul (33%, 1,757 Votes)
* Sarah Palin (27%, 1,463 Votes)
* Herman Cain (13%, 708 Votes)
* Mike Huckabee (8%, 417 Votes)
* Michele Bachmann (5%, 244 Votes)
* Donald Trump (3%, 156 Votes)
* Newt Gingrich (3%, 148 Votes)
* Tim Pawlenty (3%, 148 Votes)
* Mitt Romney (2%, 134 Votes)
* Other (2%, 110 Votes)
* Gary Johnson (1%, 88 Votes)

Total Voters: 5,373

These results are very surprising. Especially where Palin and Romney are ranked.

Scroll down and it's on the right, below the Opinion Forum box.

Poor Gary Johnson. Anybody who'd vote for him is voting for Ron Paul. He should probably quit and endorse him now.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

No, he's getting decent media exposure. Having two libertarians working together at the debates can only help. Hopefully, later in the election cycle, whichever one of them is lagging the furthest in the polls will drop out to make way for the candidate with the best shot at winning.

Good point. Both stay in the race to give maximum libertarian speaking time, then the trailing one (Johnson) quits just before the first elections.

That person (lagger) has to be Johnson. Paul's got a sweet resume, proven commitment, and the most dedicated following of any modern day politician. His 2012 election facebook page is only a few thousand behind Obama's, which says something.

I've really got my fingers crossed for him. We need him in office so badly. I thought at first that a lot of the libs would like him because of his social policies which are far more "liberal" than obama's, but then i realized how most of them would probably say that he doesn't give a sh*t about people who can't afford health care, public education, etc. Sigh... Is there any hope? Now with Obama doubtlessly touting the Osama ordeal...

What I do not understand, though, is the voting inconsistency in polls. Maybe because different polls are geared toward different audiences but in some polls Paul does abysmally, in some he wins by a landslide. Trump won a CNN poll, and I think Herman Cain won one as hell. Not sure what that all means.

I've yet to see a poll that Ron Paul has lost. You got any sources to these polls that RP lost?
