Skip to comments.WSJ poll: Can Ron Paul win the GOP presidential nomination? (86.7% yes, 13.3% no)
Posted on 05/14/2011 8:43:02 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
The Texas congressman announced on "Good Morning America" that he is launching an official campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. As the founding father of a libertarian movement that paved the way for the tea party, Mr. Paul thinks his odds have improved since his last campaign in 2008. He said people are finally agreeing with much of what Ive been saying for 30 years. The time is right.
What do you think? Could Ron Paul be the nominee?

He “can” but he won’t.
I see paulbots already swarmed this poll.
Ron Paul is not going to win the Republican nomination and he will never, ever be President.
hell I’ll take him over obama. I disagree with him strongly in regards to Israel but I think we should be bringing our soldiers home and focusing on securing our southern border and developing our own energy supplies. He seems like the type to push for the defanging the EPA and he’s bussiness friendly
Hell let the rest of the world burn this country has wasted trillions and haven’t gotten a fraction of our investment back. We need to rebuild and strengthen within our own shores then we can start projecting power again.
I suppose in the most theoretical way, anyone could win the nomination on any given day, whoever Paul will not win.
You disagree with him then spend dozens of words agreeing with him. So which is it?
My thought too.
This is the guy who said he would not have ordered the hit on OBL? That’s what I thought.
Ron Paul would get annihilated in a general election against Obama.
However, he would make a fine Sec of Treasury or Fed Chairman.
I said I disagreed to him in regards to Israel and I’ll add in other aspects of our defense policy. I didn’t say I disagreed with him in other areas. In terms of economic policy I think he’s head and shoulders above every president we’ve had since Ronald Reagan. Without a strong economic policy our defense policy won’t mean jack since we won’t have the funds to pay soldiers much less develop new weapon platforms or to fuel carriers to counter China.
I am not a PaulBot, but if Obama can win in 2008 anything is possible.
I suppose he can.....if he can get all the RATs to vote in the GOP primaries and then the election.
The longer he clings to the spotlight, the longer a lot of his really outstanding and valid ideas will be tainted with the stink of kookiness.
Where’s the “Not this crap again guy” picture?
” hell Ill take him over obama. “ =============
You betcha! AND ON ANY DAY! Alas, though, he might be too tough on communists and people just don’t have the stomach for much of that. /s
He sounds entirely cranky toward anyone who messes with the Constitution, or who supports messing with it. As for the blocks and blocks of entities and institutions in DC which circumvent the Constittution, he’s cranky about that too.
No champion yet! Keep hoping and probably will never now right up to the primaries.
No champion yet! Keep hoping and probably will never know right up to the primaries.
Ron Paul has about as much chance of becoming potus as Pat Paulsen.
