    Ron Paul Wins Texas GOP Poll

    Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex), a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, won a poll of 882 ďhighly activeĒ Republican voters in Texas. Paul won the poll with 22 percent of the Republican vote. Texas Governor Rick Perry grabbed second with 17 percent of the Republican vote, while pizza magnate Herman Cain took third with 14 percent of the vote. Paulís official campaign website and Facebook page reported on the poll first. Within a day of the poll being posted on Paulís website, the article had over 6,000 shares on Facebook.

    The poll was conducted by the Azimuth Research Group and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 points. Participants were polled between May 29th and June 3rd, 2011.

    Paul also beat out New Gingrich, who grabbed 11 percent of the Republican vote. Other Republican candidates, including Gary Johnson, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum finished with less than 10 percent of the Republican vote. Paul, who beat out fellow Texan, Gov. Perry, in the Azimuth poll, also leads Perry in a recent (New Hampshire) Public Policy Polling poll with 9 percent of the Republican vote. Perry grabbed 7 percent of the Republican vote in the Public Policy Polling poll.

    Paulís first place finish in the Azimuth poll isnít the first time that the Texas Congressman has grabbed a top three finish. At the end of May, Paul took second in a CNN/WMUR poll of Republican primary voters in New Hampshire. In this poll, Paul grabbed 9 percent of the Republican vote, while former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney took first with 32 percent of the Republican vote. In June, Paul won a straw poll at the Republican Leadership Conference with 612 votes. Jon Huntsman, the former Governor of Utah, took second in the RLC straw poll with 382 votes.

    Texas is a key state in the 2012 presidential race for Paul and the other Republican candidates, because Texas has 34 electoral votes, which is the 2nd most of any state.

    Other indications of support for Paul include a strong 2nd quarter of campaign fundraising. Last week, Paul reported that his campaign raised more than $4 million during the 2nd quarter. While Paul hasnít released an official figure, many estimates put Paulís 2nd quarter haul somewhere between $4.5 and $5 million. Although Romney raised $18.25 million during the second quarter, most of Paulís 2nd quarter cash came from online contributions and grassroots support. Paulís unofficial 2nd quarter figure places him well ahead of his other major competitors, including Pawlenty, Cain, Huntsman and Bachmann.

    The Azimuth Research Group has provided an analysis of its Texas GOP poll to explain its methodology.

    You know why Paul has not run for a Senate seat in the last 20 years?? He knows that he would lose and does not want to give up his House seat. Running for President....what a joke. Plus, I could care less what some dip-shit poll has to say cause I could enough idiots to vote the way I wanted them to.

    Ahem: I believe you meant, what MULTIPLE independent polls have to say.

    Because, as noted in the article, it's not just the recent Azimuth poll that reports Paul is beating Perry amongst active GOP voters.

    HERE's your front-runner. :D

    I meant what I said about polls. If Paul is so popular in Texas, why has he not run for higher office. Like I said, he knows, he would lose and all the jibber jabber about polls is not going to change that fact one iota.

    He is running for higher office, in Texas. He's running for President of the United States, of which Texas is certainly a part.

    And he's garnering the largest single share of Texas GOP active voters, in so doing. :)

    I'd vote for Bill the Cat before Dr. Nutz. And my vote wouldn't be a wasted one, unlike a Paulbot's vote.

    Ack!! in 2012

    Once again he will lasso 1 to 2% of the vote like a modern day Larouche.
    There is a lion eating this country and you are off chasing a friggen rabbit!
