That's unprecedented. I was just reading a Time article the other day that gave him a 1 in 2,000 chance.

It's still a long shot for him to win the GOP nomination but I'm confident that if he does he will win the general election as well.

I have argued in the past for various reasons that Ron Paul has a good chance of winning in 2012. These latest poll numbers affirm even further what I have stated in previous threads.

Does this poll really matter? Obama will win reelection, and I believe by the end of his second term, American economy should be in significantly better condition.

This is a good news, I like Ron Paul a lot. If David Duke were to run, well then that is another story. But essentially David Duke and Ron Paul believe in the same things, Duke just addresses the racial point of view behind it.

Ron Paul is anti-racist and argued that Libertarian ideals are not even compatible with racism. David Duke and Ron Paul definitely do not believe in the same things.

Yes, actually. I remember 3 months ago, Geo made a comment that Ron Paul was ahead of Romney 31% to 22%. Now he is behind 14% to 24%. By any semi-objective view of it, that is not moving in the right direction.

That was a straw poll, which is entirely different and gives Paul an edge.

Ron Paul has won all the straw polls but was losing all the national polls by quite a bit. Now he is top 3 in the national polls and remains #1 in straw polls which is remarkable.

Ron Paul has not plummetted one bit, he has only been making leaps and bounds.

Actually, if we look the trend of multiple reports, Paul isn't really changing much (he was at 7.5% back in March and April, and is at 8.7% now), while Gingrich has plumetted and Bachman has surged.

I keep forgetting that Gingrich hasn't dropped out yet.

He likely won't, not yet at least. It is still so early that these numbers don't really mean a thing (I wonder what all elected presidents numbers were 15 months before the election of their 1st term, but I'm too lazy to research it).
