The Hill: No Longer Impossible That Ron Paul Will Get GOP Nomination

Ron Paul

Long considered an outcast, Republican Ron Paul is said to be shaping the GOP along with his son Rand (Kentucky Senator). 

Juan Williams offered this assessment Monday morning regarding the Ron Paul campaign:

If you have not been paying attention, it is time to look around and realize that we are living in the political age of Rep. Ron Paul.

A CNN/Opinion Research poll released late last week shows Paul faring the best against President Obama of any potential Republican candidate. He trails the president by only 7 points, 52-45 percent, in a head-to-head matchup. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee trails by 8 points, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney down 11 points to Obama.

In February, Paul won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Action Conference for the second straight year.

Williams added:

The Tea Party, which drove the GOP to claim a majority of the House in the mid-term elections, grew largely out of the ashes of his 2008 presidential campaign, which emphasized limited government and a return to constitutional principles. Since then, the Tea Party has bullied the Republican leadership in the House to force budget cuts at the risk of shutting down the government and collectively become the most persistent critic of the Obama presidency on financial regulatory reform and health care.  The roots of all of this are in the libertarian mind of Rep. Paul.

Congressman Paul is widely regarded by the online gambling sector for his strong stance against prohibition.
