This is about how we figured it would go, reading the link, it looks like he is doing better than these two numbers show.

I just hope he doesn't have his father's SUICIDAL FOREIGN POLICY Ideas.

Nice lead and I’m trying to think who was the lady governor who stuck out her neck and endorsed Paul when alot of traditional republicans and even elitist conservatives were supporting the other guy. Seems we always hear when she endorses someone that loses but not so much when she endorses someone that wins. Just sayin’.

Are Rasmussen’s polls pretty accurate or do they tend to skew Republican? As a native Kentuckian, I really want Paul to win.

My thoughts exactly. Are they really going to try to paint a 9 point lead as modest then bury the R in phony absentee ballots to miraculously pull it out for the Dem?

Yeah, that could happen.

The Liberals accuse him of being a Republican operative because he doesn’t skew polls to their benefit.

In bad years for Republicns you have the right claiming he’s gone over to the dark side to keep the liberals off his back or that he’s incompetant.

Relity is he’s a very good polster that has results that closely mirror actual election returns. Rss is one of the few good ones.

All polls actually over-sample democrats to various extent. I think, it's partially due to dems’ advantage in formal registrations.

Did some dig up the late Calvin Coolidge and run him in an non-existent presidential election in 1933? Quite a feat there.

That is the old man’s policy... Unfortunately... usually the Nut doesn’t fall far from the tree.
And BUSH II ran on PREEMPTION, which I still believe is the best.

Bush ran on THAT in 2004.

He ran on getting us OUT of all of Clinton’s world Policing in 2000.

There is no “next” war coming.

The poet is right.

Not with a bang, but with a whimper.

Because this empire cannot sustain it’s funding much longer.

What “war” is it that you imagine is coming that we cannot avoid?

Do you really?

You think we are going to war?

You think this is a military problem?

You are mistaken. Gravely so.

From Rand’s site:

“I believe that when we must fight, we declare war as the Constitution mandates and we fight to win.”

Sounds like he would have voted against the war in Afghanistan after 9-11 and the war in Iraq. It’s one thing to generally believe we should get a declaration of war, quite another to be a hard head and refuse to fight when necessary because he can’t get his way.

I suspect Rand is a nutter like his Dad. We should never have nominated a Paul for a Senate seat. What’s done is done though, and yes, I’d certainly vote for Rand over the Democrat.

There IS no war in Iraq or Afghanistan. Those are military police actions. And we are not fighting those to win either. Bush called the Muslims he walked behind and kissed the rings of, the Religion of Peace.
