As his numbers continue to improve, Ron Paul presents challenge to Obama, other GOP candidates

(NaturalNews) President Barack Obama’s campaign has dismissed his candidacy as a Tea Party fringe, much the same way as his fellow Republican presidential contenders have, but that’s par for the course. Ron Paul knows he has always been an underdog.

But new polling data is showing Paul in a close race with Obama and other leading GOP contenders. Is it an anomaly? No, it’s not and it shows clearly how Paul’s message is increasingly resonating with a larger percentage of the American people, making him much less the underdog now than during any of his previous presidential bids.

According to Gallup, Paul is statistically tied with Obama, with the president leading slightly 47-45 percent. Paul out polls Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann (she’s behind Obama 48-44 percent), and just under former Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney (he leads Obama 48-46 percent) and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (who splits with the president 47-47 percent).

Not bad for a “fringe” candidate who has been virtually ignored by Big Media. And while other Republican presidential
contenders Romney and Perry generally poll better, Paul continues to do well.

    It would be interesting to know who still supports Obama after all his has done to Americans and their freedom. Not since FDR has there been such a socialist in the Whitehouse. There will always be some who never see the big picture.
