Ron Paul wins CPAC straw poll

My main man Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll yesterday. Of course, the MSM and even Fox News is dismissing it, but it should be noted that he throttled everyone, including previous 3 time winner Mitt Romney 31-22. No one else polled above single digits. If RP can continue to build his organization, he may be able to win the Iowa caucuses in 2012. This would give him huge momentum going into New Hampshire, whose "Live Free or Die" residents voted for another septuagenarian, John McCain, twice. If he wins those first two contests he might be able to overcome a Mike Huckabee win in South Carolina for a showdown in what is likely to be the biggest Super Tuesday ever, with 20-25 states participating.

Ron Paul is a prolific money raiser, able to drop money-bombs that pull in millions in a 24 hour span. He can be appeal to the youth vote every bit as well as Barry Obama, who's youth movement will likely leave him in droves. If he can do an end run around Fox News and talk radio and get enough Tea Party folk going his way, he's got a real shot. He's got two years to get it done. Do work son!
