Gawd, that Ron Paul is soooooooo unelectable.
Libertarians should rejoice and enjoy this bit of news.
The truth is, the dialogue in this country should be between libertarians and conservatives. And social liberals should be marginalized to the backwoods. Social liberalism — ‘er progressivism, ‘er Liberals, ‘er Democrats — in this country should be the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan – a once influential group from long ago that now, in the proper light of day, appears as it truly is — a laughable group of chowderheads who never had anything important to say.
Other interesting tidbits from this Gallup poll….Rick Perry is new to the scene, he’s dealt with some rough waters, and he’s tied up at 47 with Obama, which is about the same as Romney’s 48-46 lead on the President. Mind-boggling: 46% of registered voters still think Obama should be reelected.
In Rasmussen’s Presidential Approval Index Obama matches his lowest approval index rating of -24. That is 20% strongly approve and 44% strongly disapprove.
His overall approval puts him at 44% approve and 55% disapprove. Gallup’s job approval has Obama at 40% approve and 53% disapprove.
Therefore, on Gallup Obama has 53% who disapprove, but Perry or Romney still only manage to get 47% and 48%, respectively. Of course there are the radical neo-socialists of MSNBC and their ilk who will verbally express disapproval but will still vote for Zero.
