Skip to comments.Accept No Substitutes? [Just who are Ron Paul Supporters?]

Analysis of the GOP Bloggers Straw Poll
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Ron Paul supporters like nobody less than Giuliani for whom most observers called that debate based on his response to Pauls blowback comments, even as the Ronbots contended that the very same exchange proved Ron Paul the obvious winner.
Unlike supporters of the realistic (and popular, arguably faddish and maybe unrealistic) candidates, Ron Paul supporters apparently would not vote for any other GOP candidate in the Republican primary though intriguingly, a minority would consider Tancredo.
I submit this as fair evidence that Ron Pauls online base of support is not drawn from actual Republican party primary voters. Activists for every other candidate have their fallbacks, nemeses and frenemies, but no other group is so far outside the mainstream as the activists for Ron Paul.
Maybe Ron Paul is the GOP vanguard. More likely, his support measures something besides the current Republican mood.

The gops rosie
His supporters are DUmmies, Buchananites and 9/11 “Truthers”.
His supporters do tend to be people who have read the Constitution a time or two and are quite displeased over the two Big Spender parties.
I need to read more about RP, but I like what I have heard. He has read the Constitution, he does not want the USA to be “world police,” he does not believe Americans should only have a choice between Dumb and Dumber (Spendocrats vs Spendpublicans).
Mostly Libertarian drug addicts.
Totally strange man. Far out. Woooooeeeeeoooooo.
Interesting....yeah, I suppose that’s how it goes for them.
They were big spenders before the war also...or were you not paying attention?
Sounds as though the country is in real trouble bigtime.
It would be nice if we did not have to take on the role as "world police", but I do not trust the UN, EU, China, or the former USSR in that role. If we don't do it, you know someone else will.
You should do more research—try Pat Buchanan, but more so, try the John Birch Society..if that appeals to your tastes, you should dump the Republican Party forever...But don’t just leave in name only, just leave, and don’t be a RINO.
He's a real moron.Believes that the US military should be guarding our border instead of the Korean,German,and Iraqi borders.
The entrenched establishment fears Ron Paul, and that should make the people think...
Based upon Paul’s previous attempt at the Presidency, I’d not worry about him being much of a force in this election.
In 1998 he managed to get some 431,000 votes or about 0.47% of the vote as the Libertarian presidential candidate. I doubt he’ll cause much of a ripple among the GOP primary voters once all is said and done. He gets a lot of internet play but he doesn’t have the money nor the organization to deal will a hard fought GOP primary campaign, imo.
Check out his rankings on YT. His supporters over there seem to think that Dr. Paul hates the U.S. as much as they do...so of course, they are supporting his campaign.
Nobody fears Ron Paul.
Probably those who are looking for someone who has more to offer than policies that have the support of 30% of voters.
Ron Paul is a clown. Just observe for youselves.
