Ron Paul Polls Strongest Against Obama

Texas Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul polls strongest against US President Barack Obama in a head-to-head matchup of the current crop of Republican hopefuls.

The NBC-Marist survey, conducted between November 27-29, shows Paul ties with Obama, 42-42.

Current front runner Newt Gingrich loses to the president 47-37;

Mitt Romney, who until recently was leading most polls, is also defeated, 46-39.

The survey shows that Paul has support outside of the GOP, which any Republican will need to score a victory in November next year. The political perspectives of those polled was almost evenly distributed, with 36-percent claiming Democrat, 35-percent Independent, and 28-percent Republican party affiliation.

Ron Paul leads Obama 42 to 35 percent among independent voters and attracts 15 percent of Iowa’s Democrats.

Paul also leads Obama by 14 percentage points among voters under 45 years of age.

Additionally, 70-percent did not support or consider themselves to be members of the Tea Party, where Paul finds his strongest following.

Out of the 2,879 registered voters surveyed, 54-percent plan to vote in the general election.
