Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
USAElectionPolls.com has been tracking the 2008 presidential election with an archive of polls dating back to as early as November 2004.
Ron Paul is a phenom with a huge dedicated following, but according to the polls at USAElectionPolls.com, does not register in the double digits in any of the Super Tuesday states.
Ron Paul is currently polling the strongest in Tennessee with 9 percent since Fred Thompson dropped out of the race. After that is California and New Jersey, states he is polling about 7 percent, and Oklahoma with 6 percent.
There are a flurry of states that the Texas congressman polls about 4-5 percent and even polls as low as 1 percent in Utah and Connecticut.
This does not bode well for Ron Paul as he goes forward. The mainstream media has already branded him as an outsider with little or no chance of winning the nomination and despite the fact that he is able to out raise his GOP competitors, without much support at the polls, it is tough to see how Ron Paul can brand himself as more than just an asterisk.
According to demographic breakdown of the polls at USAElectionPolls.com when they are available, 18-29 year olds in many states are supporting Ron Paul in the 15-20 percent range. But the candidate fails to win over the older voters as he registers around 2-3 percent among them.
"Younger voters only make up about 15-17 percent of the voting pool in any given election," says USAElectionPolls.com. USAElectionPolls.com continues to point out that younger voters are essential in getting volunteers for the campaigns, help with fundraising, having an Internet presence, all of which Ron Paul has been successful at. But very rarely have they swung an election when a candidate considers them as his base.
Ron Paul has been a staunch supporter of fiscal responsibility and it is stated by independent monitoring organizations that Ron Paul is the only conservative whose plan would really cut the budget and with the crumbling economy, Ron Paul's message has never been more truthful.
USAElectionPolls.com is the nation's most visited polling archive on the Internet with over 700,000 unique monthly visitors, according to Quantcast.com.
