Rasmussen 2012 Poll – Ron Paul 38%; Barack Obama 39%
Today, Rasmussen reports that in a hypothetical 2012 match-up, Ron Paul would receive 38% of the vote versus 39% for Barack Obama:
Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul earns 38% of the vote to President Obama’s 39% in the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters. Fourteen percent (14%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) remain undecided.
Also of interest in the report:
Paul, whose long run afoul of the GOP establishment with his libertarian policy prescriptions, picks up 61% of the Republican vote, while 78% of Democrats fall in behind the president. Voters not affiliated with either of the major political parties prefer the longtime congressman by 10 points – 43% to 33%.
Of course, anyone who has researched the voting records and principles of Ron Paul and Barack Obama understands there really is no comparison between the two. After all:
- Ron Paul is actually anti-war and would end the Iraq War; Obama has hardly changed a thing in Iraq.
- Ron Paul would bring all U.S. troops home; Obama has started and expanded new endless wars in Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Libya.
- Ron Paul voted against the PATRIOT Act (Obama, on the other hand…)
- Ron Paul predicted the 2008 financial collapse. (“The only candidate who predicted the economic crisis is the only one who can get us out of it.”)
- Ron Paul has voted against every unbalanced budget.
- Ron Paul would legalize marijuana; Obama is currently attacking medical marijuana dispensaries.
These are just several of the facts that demonstrate Ron Paul is a far superior choice to Barack Obama. What others can you think of?
