Ron Paul is making his move.

This is from the politico.


Ron Paul closes 2012 gap in Iowa, according to poll

For all the evidence of a national Newt Gingrich surge, there's a strong argument to be made that much -- if not all -- of that momentum depends on the former House speaker winning Iowa. And PPP serves up a set of numbers there today that shows Gingrich is in a close contest with several opponents, Ron Paul chief among them:

There has been some major movement in the Republican Presidential race in Iowa over the last week, with what was a 9 point lead for Newt Gingrich now all the way down to a single point. Gingrich is at 22% to 21% for Paul with Mitt Romney at 16%, Michele Bachmann at 11%, Rick Perry at 9%, Rick Santorum at 8%, Jon Huntsman at 5%, and Gary Johnson at 1%.

Gingrich has dropped 5 points in the last week and he's also seen a significant decline in his favorability numbers. Last week he was at +31 (62/31) and he's now dropped 19 points to +12 (52/40). The attacks on him appear to be taking a heavy toll- his support with Tea Party voters has declined from 35% to 24%.

Re: Ron Paul is making his move.

Ron Paul looks better the more you listen and think about him. Gingrich is a nasty person, and the more he is in the limelight, the worse he looks .


At some point, you have to have some faith in the ability of Americans to get things right and steady the ship. We might be among the biggest screwups that the world has ever seen, but there seems to be something about Americans that make us come together when things seem the darkest.


One common thread among Americans looking to get us back on track, is the need to sever the link between money and politics. Our system is totally corrupted by the interests of big money, to the extent of legal bribery. If this doesn't end, there is no hope. The second ailment is the influence of the MIC and the zionists on foreign policy, which again goes back to money and bribery.


Gingrich will sink America. People need to understand the guy and what he is really about. I talked to a friend today already that was thinking Gingrich was the salvation of America, and at least got her to promise to do some research about him. I guess it has been long enough for Gingrich that people seem to think he is not the same guy that left politics in shame.
