Ron Paul polling within 1% of first place in Iowa

According to "The Hill", Ron Paul is polling within 1 point of Gingrich.

Gingrich - 22%
Ron Paul - 21%
Romney - 16%

Supporters are planning another big money bomb on Friday December 16th. Ron Paul bulletin boards are buzzing with pledges to double and triple normal donation amounts.

The money bombs are buying massive amounts of media in Iowa and New Hampshire to air his compelling campaign ads.

None of the other candidates have campaign ground troops that can compare with Ron Paul's.

Don't be surprised when Ron Paul wins Iowa.

Actually he's 1% of first place, not second, in that poll. There are two other Iowa polls out since yesterday. One has Paul in third. The other has him in second.

Ron Paul should lower expectations as much as he possibly can. Whether you win or lose in the media is always measured by expectations of how well the candidate does versus how well he/she was expected to do.


I don't think RP can lower expectations since a lot of what happens is done by individual supporters who blog, sign wave, attend meet-ups, and donate over and over again to money bombs.

Regardless, it sure is a lot of fun seeing him do so well against progressives like Newt and Romney.

We need a political insider for the New World Order in the White House.

We need a tried and true Bilderberger and Council on Foreign Relations member leading our nations people further into perpetual debt slavery to global banks.

Vote for Newt.

(newts can be so more than poison excreting salamanders)


Thanks Paul for catching my error. I fixed it.

HFFT, you'd be surprised. Several of the pundits on the weekend political shows said Paul could well win Iowa. Those are not expectations you want. You want to downplay possible success then claim victory when you exceed expectations.
