GOP candidate Ron Paul latest news shows that in a Matt Drudge (Drudge Report) initiated poll of which GOP presidential hopeful won the debate in Iowa, the leader with 45% of the vote was, Ron Paul.
Dr. Paul, an East Texas Doctor and congressman, has quietly stepped into the Howard Dean and Ross Perot slot of the upcoming election, and signs of his support seem to be growing based on the latest numbers cited on CNN today.
ABC News and NBC both have reported that Dr. Paul, an OB/GYN, has Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Green Party and Independents among his base of support. He also appeals to conservative voters opposed to abortion, the UN, the I.R.S. and U.S. Military interventions in foreign countries.
Paul supporters say his views on abortion are his own personal feelings, and he prefers to leave the decisions of legislation up to each individual state and its constituents.
Recently the AP reported and wrote “The enthusiasm has boosted his national profile but hasn’t translated into widespread voter support in the polls.”
His longevity remains to be seen, but there can be no denying his run for the presidency is gaining in momentum and interest from voters.
