Ron had more Kansan(?) donate to him than Perry and Romney combined! He basically received 30% of the donations in Kansas. (not financially speaking, but in number of donors) Not to mention out raising Romney (no big bankers in Kansas ey?)
If this is not a sign that Ron is the people's choice and a people's president, than I dont know what is!

I decided to break the link, however, because of this

"Paul has devoted followers in many states," Bob Beatty, political science professor at Washburn University, said of the Texas congressman. "That doesn't mean he wins the election
But the numbers speak for themselves!

Thread title should say donors not donations.

Wow. This is very surprising. Kansas is the state that has brought us such notable freak shows like Sam Brownback and John Brown.

Indeed, fixed.

On a related note:


ROMNEY = 66% of contributors gave $2500 max contribution
PERRY = 80% of contributors gave $2500 max contribution
PAUL = 12% of contributors gave $2500 max contribution

ROMNEY = 17% of contributors gave < $1000
PERRY = 9% of contributors gave < $1000
PAUL = 73% of contributors gave < $1000

Kansan here! This is really cool for me. I have been spreading the word of Ron Paul to my friends. Three of them are now also voting for Paul! I think he is popular here.

That's awesome! Glad to see my peeps are coming around.

Kansan here too.. I was one of those donations!

I also want to add - and I invite my Kansas brethren (and sistren :) ) to weigh in - that Kansans are a very laid-back sort. I think that also applies to other plains states. Outside of the Tea Party rallies a few years ago we aren't activist types. The culture around here is also that because Kansas almost always votes GOP for the president and that our primary/caucus is late enough that things are virtually decided already, people don't get too excited over candidates. So I think the report in the OP is fairly significant and I hope it translates to more votes in the March 10 caucus.

I have been meaning to get a picture of some Ron Paul stickers a guy keeps putting up on Pitt State's campus. I see them every day and I am always like "that's awesome"... their location is perfect, I am sure every student that leaves the main parking lot gets to see them.
