Ron Paul looking good
I poked around the Web a bit today and did this post on how Ron Paul is doing for the Register's Horserace'08 blog. There's finally an independent public poll on Ron Paul's congressional primary race, and it shows Ron leading 63-30. Interestingly, he has a bigger lead among minorities than among whites. So it looks as if he'll be back on the presidential trail after March 4. Since he has a few pledged delegates, I expect him to stay in it until the convention, seek a speaking slot there, and make a good show at the convention. That would be a nice capstone to what is still looking like the most impressive pro-freedom mass movement in my lifetime. We'll see what the long-term impact is -- if all that enthusiasm can be channeled into something that helps to loosen up American society, or at least its political system, and eventually maybe its government.
