SURPRISE SURPRISE - New CNN Poll Shows Obama Tied With Romney And Ron Paul In November Showdowns, Gingrich & Santorum Trail Behind

Despite the headline, this is not a surprise to anyone but establishment GOP insiders.  This is the third poll in recent months showing Ron Paul competing favorably against Obama in a general election.  Dr. Paul might not be able to win the Republican nomination, but he and Romney are the only 2 candidates with any chance against Obama.  Moreover, when you consider that Romney is a Bush-Obama clone (both love bailouts, war, cronyism, Wall Street and the Federal Reserve), it becomes abundantly clear that Ron Paul is the only choice for fundamental change.

Perhaps that is why in New Hampshire last week, nearly half of ALL young voters voted for Dr. Paul.

Full details on the brand new CNN poll are below, plus a few Ron Paul stories you might not have seen.

Washington – Mitt Romney is all tied up with President Barack Obama in a likely general election matchup, with the president showing signs of weakness on the economy and Romney seen as out of touch with ordinary Americans, according to a new national survey.

And a CNN/ORC International Poll released Monday also indicates that Rep. Ron Paul of Texas is also even with Obama in another possible showdown this November. The survey also suggests the Republican advantage on voter enthusiasm is eroding, which could be crucial in a close contest.

According to the survey, if the November election were held today and Romney were the Republican presidential nominee, 48% say they'd vote for the former Massachusetts governor, with 47% supporting the president. Romney's one point margin is well within the poll's sampling error.

The poll also indicates Paul statistically tied with Obama, with the president at 48% and the longtime congressman at 46%. But according to the poll, the president is doing better against two other Republican presidential candidates. If Rick Santorum were the GOP nominee, Obama would hold a 51%-45% advantage over the former senator from Pennsylvania. And if Newt Gingrich faced off against the president, Obama would lead the former House speaker 52%-43%.

Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul tonight received the endorsement of South Carolina state Sen. Tom Davis, a state lawmaker popular with tea party activists.

Speaking at a rally in Myrtle Beach, Davis praised Paul’s “drastic and radical” efforts to reign in government spending.

“There is only one candidate that is talking about this problem to the degree, at the scale, and with the scope that it needs to be talked about,” Davis said. “You can’t nibble around the edges anymore.”

Hey DB,

Glad you're posting on this story. The fact is, anti-Obama voters DO have a choice. Republican voters need to understand that in the upcoming primaries. If you want to beat Obama, you can vote for Paul or Romney. And if you want real change from Obama's policies, then you have to vote Paul.

I'm honestly amazed at these polls, but them's the facts. I love it.

Dr. P.

First of all I'm sorry that your comment (with the youtube link) went into a holding pattern and had to be approved by me before it was posted. I am incredibly upset about the new CAPTCHA system on the site. The words are difficult to decipher, they come up on a second page (instead of on the first page when you are leaving the comment), and now, just recently, comments have to be approved by me (if they contain a link) before showing up on the site.

It is a horrible system, and I apologize. I have been complaining about it to squarespace for weeks now, and still nothing has been done. I just fired off another angry email to squarespace asking them to fix the situation.

I agree. In fact, I think Ron Paul would do better against Obama than Romney because of the passion of his supporters. They are fired up to hit the voting booths and cast their ticket for Ron Paul. Romney supporters, not so much.

I just hope like hell that Ron Paul wins the republican nomination, somehow. If it came down to Romney versus Obama, I'll either vote Obama (and I guess be hoping he gets body-snatched by benevolent aliens) or the communists. Basically it doesn't really matter and I could just as well stay home except that I have this weird compulsion to do my civic duty sometimes.

The message that progressives/liberals/non-evil conservatives need to get is that it doesn't MATTER if you think RP is a loon on some issues (I do), but that he is the ONLY ONE who is not going to take us one step (or several) to a theocratic police state... which I am sad to say DOES trump things like funding research in science and technology, or abortion rights and even racism at this point. Everyone needs to drop their pet "distraction issue" and look at things like "indefinite detention/killing of american citizens", the loss of free speech, the loss of due process and right to fair trials, etc.

Good to see you ETM. I have similar thoughts. I still don't know for whom I would pull the lever if it's romney vs. obama. And regarding the distraction issues, Paul might be a closet homophobe, but I don't believe he's racist. It would also be nice to end the wars, drug war, police state, TSA, etc.

"February 4, 2012 Nevada (caucus) projected 1st"

* * * *

"[2/28] Michigan (primary) 1st"

Nevada and Michigan are two states leading the nation in pain inflicted by the financial crisis, i.e., by Wall Street graft. Las Vegas has led the nation in foreclosures for something like 60 consecutive months, while the deterioration in Michigan is epic. Plenty of seasoned businesspeople from Michigan tell me business climate is the worst they've ever seen and freely concede the entire economy is in a depression.

You have to be a pollyanna, an Obama fan, or someone who believes CNBC is real to think the economic climate will get better before the November elections, which promise to be epic.

This is yet another reason I think a third-party ticket might work to Paul's advantage, with the Republican primaries functioning as no more than a mechanism to kill off the MSM's anti-Paul Republican presidential candidate du jour one by one.

Cheyenne, This time it may just work. We know the rnc Aint Gona Let it Happen...... So, the American People will be left with the only other way to pull this off.

We have nothing to lose, and we have "Everything to Lose", if we dont try it this time........We cant take 4 years more of Baby Boots Bush.......................

Right on, Dar. And there are untold millions of people--neighbors who seem to have it together--who have nothing to lose now. The air in America wafts with desperation now, even in suburban strips malls and country clubs and law firm offices.

More and more people now are trusting their own senses and turning off (or cursing) their TV's. This is Ron Paul's wheel house; it is huge and it is growing, and MSM efforts to beat it back are becoming transparently ludicrous.

Cornered animals are dangerous, unpredictable. The cornered American middle class is worse yet, a house of sawdust lusting silently for a flame.
