Santorum Out, Ron Paul In

Will Republicans finally start showing Ron Paul some love?
The latest Rasmussen poll on 12 April shows that in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup, President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied at 45%. Texas Congressman Ron Paul holds a one-point edge over the president, 44% to 43%. Yes, that's right. Ron Paul is now the candidate most likely to defeat Barack Obama. This trend is likely to get worse for Mitt Romney once Obama unleashes his attack ads because Romney has very little record to fight back with. Romney spoke in favor of the bank bailouts, so he can't challenge Obama on that issue. Romney was pro-abortion in the past, so he can't challenge Obama on that. Romney's tax plan actually increases the deficit, so he can't challenge Obama on that. ObamaCare was modeled on Romney's government-mandated healthcare in Massachusetts so he can't challenge Obama on that either. Romney was for the assault weapons ban, the economic stimulus that didn't work, and the global warming issue, so trying to take on Obama on those won't work either. The one reason Romney has been successful against the other Republican candidates is his fundraising (he is backed by Goldman Sachs and the other big banks). But so is Obama, and Obama has even more money. Therefore, Romney won't be able to outspend him. However, if Ron Paul is the GOP nominee, he can without a doubt take on Obama on all these issues and more because his record is so rock-solid and consistent.
