Ron gets 26% saying he would make a good president amongst independents. And Ron Paul is in third with 20% on the question 'who would make a good president', amongst ALL voters!

Across the United States, 23 per cent of respondents think former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney would make a good president, followed by Texas Governor Rick Perry with 21 per cent, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul with 20 per cent.

How can they pretend he isn't competitive?!?

Great poll. We're definitely moving up. I would love to see this poll given some fair coverage by the MSM. We'll see if that happens.......

Gaining 6 points among all voters....Great news.

Gaining 11 points among GOP voters..... HUGE! Gives me great hope.

This is a post Tea Party Debate poll, correct?

Pre Tea Party Debate Poll

From the link in the OP


Methodology: From September 1 to September 2, 2011, Angus Reid Public Opinion conducted an online survey among 1,787 randomly selected American adults who are Springboard America panelists. The margin of error—which measures sampling variability—is +/- 2.3%. The results have been statistically weighted according to the most current education, age, gender and region data to ensure samples representative of the entire adult population of the United States. Discrepancies in or between totals are due to rounding.

Is RCP accepting this ill?

I hope this poll is legit as that's the best Paul has ever polled period, which of course makes me wonder if it's legitimate.

edit- ah an online poll kind of like Zogby.

It isn't 'who would you vote for amongst these' it was 'who would be a good president'. I assume you might think two or three of them would make a good president, but only be able to vote for one, but maybe I'm reading it wrong.

Hadn't picked up on the online part, but if they only poll once a year, who would be signing up?

The respondents could choose more than one as a "good president" in this poll. It also polled everybody, including Dems, Republicans, Independents, etc. So I would guess that for most of these candidates, most of their support came from Republicans, whereas for Ron, it may have been close to an even split with Republicans and Independents.
