Ron Paul And YouTube Duke It Out…July 17, 2007
…for the top spot on technorati’s search:
I could have sworn that yesterday Paul was ahead. Anyway, it’s been like this for weeks. I don’t think I’ve seen Ron Paul lower than #4 on this list. With all the buzz he’s been getting on the internet, however, it doesn’t seem to effect actual poll numbers. From a recent USAT/Gallup poll:
Giuliani has the support of 30% of “Republicans and Republican leaners,” vs. 28% a month ago; Thompson comes in with 20%, vs. 19% in June; McCain has 16%, vs. 18% a month earlier.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney remains in fourth, at 9% vs. 7% in June.
The current numbers for the rest of the Republicans included in the survey: Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, 6%; former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, 2%; Rep. Duncan Hunter, 2%; Rep. Tom Tancredo, 2%; Sen. Sam Brownback, 1%; Sen. Chuck Hagel, 1%; former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, 1%. Neither former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore nor Rep. Ron Paul registered any support.
No support? Yesterday, I saw that Paul was ahead of all the the other GOP candidates in campaign contributions from members of the armed services.
What the heck is going on?
