they credit his activism and his support, but they still stress that he badly needs $$ and more TV exposure.

A July 22 Rasmussen poll showed that Paul, when placed in a head-to-head battle with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, won 34 percent of the vote to Clinton's 49 percent. These numbers would be less than cheerful if Paul were a well-funded candidate who had received coverage by the mainstream press, but he is anything but. If Paul, a virtual unknown with just enough money to run a shoestring campaign, can garnish 34 percent of the vote against the Diva of the Democrats, imagine what he could do with money, media and manpower.

For the Paul campaign, this poll shows that 34 percent of the people have responded to their grassroots message of freedom. It shows that Paul, without money or major media coverage, is able to convince a third of those polled to vote for him. That is an accomplishment.

Compare such results to Romney, a candidate with money, media and formidable political machine. When Romney is placed head to head with Clinton, he receives 40 percent of the vote, just 6 points ahead of Paul. If Paul had Romney's money and media, the country could be looking at a replay of the election of 1980.


In case anyone is interested the Rasmussen poll referenced in that article is here:

Very nice, though I noticed an error:

"Folks supporting recent Iowa Straw Poll winner Mike Huckabee asked me why Huckabee should bow out for Tancredo."

Otherwise, a good read.
