Ignored by the media and dismissed by the Republican Party in general, liberty-minded Congressman Ron Paul leaped into third place today in the Gallup Presidential Nomination preference poll. Paul jumped over Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party darling/lunatic, relegating her to fourth-place in the current poll. Here's how the numbers shake out today.Rick Perry, Texas Governor: 29% Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts Governor: 17% Ron Paul, Texas Congressman: 13% Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Congresswoman: 10%
That's right. Ron Paul jumped into third place...and the media continues to ignore his candidacy. I can't explain it as anything other than outright bias against the man and his ideas.
