Rand Paul does the best in this survey of registered voters compared to the other Republican candidates.

Go to page 12 to see the results. http://newscms.nbcnews.com/sites/newscms/files/141617_december_nbc-wsj_poll.pdf

Also MSNBC reported on these results as seen on this video. Go to 2:42 to see the discussion of Republican candidates including Romney and Bush. While the democrats are discussed beforehand.

Ron did better than the GOP field in the General too. The BSM made it a point in 2011 to demonstrate that fact before launching into destroy-Paul mode.

Ron did better than all the GOP candidates, except was roughly equal to Romney. However the tactics used against Ron will not work against Rand because Rand identified these weaknesses ahead of time and made adjustments.

Wow that was a marathon survey, imagine having the patience to sit through all of those questions. I wonder if there was any reward involved.

Rand is not, will not, and can not be marginalized the same way they did Ron. MSM can ignore him all they want, but since 08 to now people are starting to see that MSM is not, will not and can not be your only source.

Here is what I see. The following numbers are the gaps in the percentages. These are the gaps the candidates must close and no candidate other than Scott Walker has such a small gap like Rand Paul does.

Below is a group of establishment tools that most voters are not interested in.

Mitt Romney ......................... 27
Jeb Bush .............................. 26
Chris Christie ........................ 26
Mike Huckabee ..................... 28
Rick Perry ............................ 33
Ted Cruz .............................. 27

Here we have a group of candidates that haven't yet pissed off the public enough to make them the hated choices.

Rand Paul ............................. 17
Marco Rubio .......................... 23
Scott Walker .......................... 17

I am not concerned with Romney or Bush or Christie because the voters don't want those candidates, they are leary of them.

Many pundits agree, Walker could be the biggest threat. But I am from Wisconsin and know Walker and I doubt he will run. I do not think he will sell out enough to be accepted by the establishment.

ITs not a lil suspicious that Paul Ryan is completely off the radar at this point?

Ryan just got appointed to the Chair of the Ways & Means Committee.

Him running for prez = giving up chairman seats in HR. Not tooo likely, unless the Randslide becomes completely real as Iowa comes up...

Then he just happens to announce to be low-key then like someone posted, every other establishment candidate drops out and backs him seeing he has a clean face record, some name recognition and will actually give Rand a real run for his money.
