A poll released Tuesday found that in head-to-head election match-ups between President Barack Obama and various Republican presidential candidates, Texas Rep. Ron Paul fared best among non-white voters.

Every legacy media and central planner’s worst nightmare is slowly coming true: as the broader field of GOP candidates is rapidly dropping like US secret drones blowing up nuclear power plants in Iran, due to general idiocy, incompetence, too much baggage-ness or general reverse American Idol syndrome where Americans get tired with any given “leader” only to vote them out of the primary the following week, the one clear winner is becoming Ron Paul, who according to Public Policy Polling has seen his support soar in the past week and is now neck and neck with presidential candidate du week, Newt Gingrich.

Every chair in the room was claimed 30 minutes before the candidate was scheduled to appear. Students stood along the walls and crowded into the back of the room. At least 50 couldn’t fit into the ballroom and sat in the hallway outside, just listening to the Republican presidential hopeful’s words…..
