Paul Beats Palin

Ron Paul (11%) beat Sarah Palin (7%) in a presidential straw poll of Republican Party committee members in New Hampshire today. Dr. Paul came in second to full-time candidate Mitt “Bob Dole” Romney (35%) and also defeated another active candidate Tim Pawlenty (8%).

This result is impressive because, (1) Ron Paul is busy fighting the Fed, not campaigning; (2) it is not a poll of grass roots activists but party regulars; and (3) it means Ron Paul was the leading tea party candidate ranged against the country club GOP man—and likely loser against the neo-centrist Obama—Mitt Romney.
