Washington D.C. (PRWEB) June 10, 2007
An online analyst at USAElectionPolls.com observes that Ron Paul, a Republican presidential candidate, is continuing to grow in popularity.
Despite languishing near the bottom of the presidential polls with 1%, Ron Paul has become an Internet phenom. As a favorite of the youthful 18-29 year olds, he has become a household name for those that frequent the popular Web 2.0 websites such as YouTube, MySpace, and Digg.
"Ron Paul's online support just continues to grow and there is no signs of letting up. If anything, it will grow beyond our expectations," says David Terr of USAElectionPolls.com. The web site ran a poll on their website and found roughly 33% of their visitors responding to the poll learned about Ron Paul within the last 2 months.
"That is a 50% growth rate over the past two months. If you extrapolate that over the next 6 months, his familiarity online would grow by another 350%. Websites have already began to censor Ron Paul comments on their forums because the supporters have drowned out the voices of the supporters of the other candidates. Imagine 10 times that," says Terr.
There has been little evidence to suggest that Paul's popularity has improved because of the internet but USAElectionPolls.com warns that it is only a matter of time.
