“Shock” CNN Poll: Ron Paul Has Best Chance Of Beating Obama

Our November 2010 forecast that Texas Congressman was frontrunner amongst GOP in hypothetical run off against Obama borne out by new survey

Our November 2010 prediction that only Ron Paul amongst the roster of likely Republican candidates had a realistic chance of beating Barack Obama in 2012 has been borne out by what the media are describing as a “shock CNN poll” that shows the Texas Congressman leading his GOP rivals in a hypothetical run off against Obama.

In an article that appeared on this website six months ago entitled Ron Paul Can Beat Obama In 2012, we wrote that the cult of personality that propelled Barack Obama to success in 2008 had well and truly faded, but that establishment neo-con figures like Romney, Gingrich and Palin were equally unpopular.

“Indeed, the only saving grace for Obama is the fact that the Republican candidates he is likely to face in 2012, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Newt Gingrich, have all lost popularity at a similar pace to the President. If Obama were to run against any of these individuals, he would probably still win, such is American’s increasing disdain for the two party monopoly,” we wrote.

“Democrats who voted for Obama in 2008 will only be motivated to do so again if Republicans put forward a compromised candidate who can easily be characterized as George W. Bush 2.0. If Ron Paul runs against Obama, huge numbers of Democrats will take a back seat, and some may even switch allegiances, such is the profound sense of betrayal many liberals now feel towards Barry’s completely unfulfilled promises of hope and change.”

That forecast has been now borne out by a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll that was conducted over the weekend.

“Who does best against Obama? Paul. The congressman from Texas, who also ran as a libertarian candidate for president in 1988 and who is well liked by many in the tea party movement, trails the president by only seven points (52 to 45 percent) in a hypothetical general election showdown. Huckabee trails by eight points, with Romney down 11 points to Obama,” reports CNN.

The results of the poll arrive on the back of last night’s first GOP presidential debate in South Carolina, during which Ron Paul again performed outstandingly amidst a field largely comprised of chicken hawk, torture-loving establishment dupes who have little grasp of what made America strong and prosperous in the first place.

The biggest challenge for Ron Paul will not be defeating Obama. Given the opportunity, the kind of roller coaster momentum the Texas Congressman can build through his energetic supporter base can easily overturn a 7 point deficit and overwhelm Obama. A more difficult stumbling block will be attainting the Republican nomination in the first place, because the establishment media will once again heavily promote establishment neo-con candidates like Gingrich, Palin and Romney while denigrating and sidelining Ron Paul.

Another obstacle is the fact that almost all of the Republican candidates have mimicked Paul’s populist rhetoric and his stand point on issues like the federal reserve, Obamacare, and getting government out of people’s business. But they are wolves in sheep’s clothing and just like Obama’s promises of transparency and hope evaporated almost instantaneously, neo-cons like Romney, Gingrich and Palin, and the rest of the field on display last night will do nothing to affect real change.

Take James Pawlenty for example, someone the media lavished with praise after last night’s debate despite the fact that he advocated Barack Obama’s disastrous cap and trade program. He is another RINO – Republican In Name Only, a big government socialist posing as a conservative, as are most of the candidates that will be running against Paul.

The corporate media also heaped praise on another insider posing as a populist, Herman Cain, who is the former Chairman and Member of the Board of Directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Cain has publicly opposed efforts to audit the Federal Reserve. The “conservative media” declared Cain the winner of last night’s debate, yet he is another elitist shill posing as a grass roots populist.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
