Ron Paul is Republican front runner

Ron Paul’s support is surging, putting him solidly in position as a Republican front runner. Yesterday Paul took second in the Ames Straw poll in Iowa, only 152 votes short of Michelle Bachman (who is from Iowa).

28.55% (4823 votes) – Michele Bachmann
27.65% (4671 votes) – Ron Paul
13.58% (2293 votes) – Tim Pawlenty
9.81% (1657 votes) – Rick Santorum
8.62% (1456 votes) – Herman Cain
4.25% (718 votes) – Rick Perry (write-in)
3.36% (567 votes) – Mitt Romney
2.28% (385 votes) – Newt Gingrich
0.41% (69 votes) – Jon Huntsman
0.21% (35 votes) – Thaddeus McCotter

This is a dramatic shift from 2007 when Paul took 5th at the Iowa straw pool. Ron Paul has been taking 1st or second in all major straw polls this year. Earlier this year Paul took 2nd in the New Hampshire straw poll, first at the conservative CPAC straw poll, first at the RLC, the Louisiana leadership straw poll.
