Takes strong second in New Hampshire, reports Revolution PAC
MANCHESTER, NH – January 10, 2012 – U.S. Rep. Ron Paul tripled his 2008 finish Tuesday, capturing a strong second in the New Hampshire Primary, reports Revolution PAC. Exit polls showed voters prioritizing moral character and true conservative positions, as well as independent-leaning voters, selected Rep. Paul over his rivals.
“As Rep. Paul stated in his victory speech tonight,” noted Revolution PAC Chair Gary Franchi, “his campaign is about presenting a real challenge to the status quo. He continues to show a strong and necessary crossover appeal with independents and disaffected democrats. We congratulate Congressman Paul on his outstanding success in New Hampshire.”
Rep. Paul stood at 23 percent of the vote with more than 90 percent of precincts reporting.
As candidates prepare for the South Carolina Primary January 21, polls continue to show that only Paul and Mitt Romney can prevail over incumbent Barack Obama. In a head-to-head matchup with Obama, independent voters prefer Paul, a CBS News poll suggested on Monday. A total of 47 percent of independent voters said they would choose Ron Paul compared to 45 percent of independent voters choosing Romney against Obama.
Reinforcing what is shaping up as a two-man race, Paul and Romney are the only Republican candidates who have successfully secured positions on the primary ballots of every state, reported South Carolina’s The State newspaper Tuesday.
