Will Ron Paul Be The Last Candidate Standing In The GOP Presidential Field?
Paul seems to be the candidate on the move in both states as support for the other major candidates in the field has resembled a roller coaster ride. He's running near the top of the field in Iowa according to the latest poll, and he's jumped to a second place showing in New Hampshire behind the heavy favorite, Mitt Romney, who served as governor of the neighboring state of Massachusetts. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich seems to have become the latest flavor of the month among the GOP field as he soars in national polls, but I don't expect that ride to last much longer.
I still haven't made up my mind which candidate I will support, but if I were to base it on trust and principle at this point, Ron Paul would be a clear favorite. There is also no other candidate in the field who would upset the political establishment more than Paul, which adds to his attractiveness in my opinion. The pure evil political manipulator, Karl Rove, has tried his best to marginalize Paul and his supporters, but Rove has never been a friend of people who believe in true Republican Party principles. Not surprisingly, Rove thinks Romney is the candidate the party should be backing. Romney hasn't held a political position yet in his career he wasn't willing to flip flop on. When a guy wants to argue about what his real first name is, he's got more than a credibility problem.
