Though the seating arrangements and even the number of questions addressed to "second tier" presidential candidates were designed to "showcase" so-called major candidates, the Ron Paul (R-Tex) Internet poll surge continues.

The CNN poll gives him a decisive victory in last night's GOP debate.


The following CNN link is available for those who wish to vote:


Over at MSNBC, Ron Paul is winning as well, by wide margins.


At Vote.com, feedbacker Joe Osborne writes that Ron Paul is "in the lead at 77%."


Ron Paul, according to some supporters of the campaign, gave the most eloquent and convincing answer of any modern, televised debate when he identified President George Bush's pre-emptive war doctrine as the single most troubling moral issue faced by United States.

With Internet polls, showing Ron Paul convincingly ahead of the other presidential candidates in every debate, the mainstream media is going to have address the phenomenon sooner or later in a serious manner, these observers add. Otherwise the divide between Internet opinion and phone surveys will erode the credibility of professional polling firms - already damaged by "push polling" and other practices.

Norman, just curious why he has no chance?
Are you saying the game is rigged?

Most Internet polls are also VERY suspect as a source of real data. I usually pretty much ignore them because they violate so many basic rules of sound polling.

Actually I like him. I wonder if he is electable. Remember that Kerry was pretty obscure until about 30 minutes after the scream.

I watched Ron Paul, I think for the first time, on the Bill Maher show. Gotta admit that I was impressed with the guy. He come off as very sensible. I'm intrigued.

It wasn't Kerry who "screamed".
Paul is a isolationist loonie. He is living in a fantasy world where the only reason radical Islamofacists have a blood vow to convert or murder every 'non-believer' on the planet is because the 'West' is being 'mean' to them by standing up to them.

Ron Paul has some fanatical fans who flood every online poll with multiple responses. Its well known.
