Ron Paul: Top Tier and Quite Electable

After a recent Gallup poll put Ron Paul-- along with Bachmann, Perry, and Romney-- in a statistical tie with President Obama were the general election to be held today, there can be no more question that Ron Paul is certainly electable, and has as good a chance as any of the other GOP front runners at defeating President Obama.

In light of these new numbers, the Christian Science Monitor asks: Has Ron Paul become electable?

Look behind you Mitt Romney – has Ron Paul suddenly become electable?

That’s a conclusion one might draw from a new Gallup poll that pits Republican presidential candidates against President Obama in head-to-head matchups.

The GOP establishment’s view of Representative Paul, an anti-foreign-intervention pro-gold-standard libertarian, is that he’s a sideshow, and not an amusing one. He is dismissed as someone with a committed core of supporters but little appeal to Republican voters as a whole or the country at large.

Yet in the Gallup survey, among registered voters Paul trails Mr. Obama by only two points – 45 percent to 47 percent. That’s within the poll’s margin of error.
