Ron Paul in the University of Iowa Poll

August 9, 2007

   This is what I’m talking about.  He has incredibly avid supporters, but his base is to small.  I know this is just Iowa voters, and it included all candidates and parties, but this sort of lackluster performance is not going to draw attention to himself.  Maybe the message is unacceptabe.  I think more likely his organization is just incredibly incompentent and his message isn’t being received by the voters.  It’s unfortunate, because him in the race is better than him out of the race, and if he performs like this in the straw poll in Iowa this weekend he is in a world of hurt.
