Paul attracts more support from Democrats than Republicans

Clinton 42% Giuliani 39% Ron Paul 8%

From Rasmussen:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found Hillary Clinton leading Rudy Giuliani by three percentage points in a four-way race that includes Ron Paul running as a Libertarian candidate and Ralph Nader representing the Green Party. The poll shows Clinton earning 42% of the vote while Giuliani attracts 39%. Ron Paul is the choice for 8%, Ralph Nader is preferred by 4% and 7% are not sure (see crosstabs).

The inclusion of two minor-party candidates has little impact on the gap between Clinton and Giuliani. Recent Rasmussen Reports polling shows Clinton leading Giuliani by an average of four percentage points in a two-way race. The gender gap is huge—Clinton leads by nineteen points among women while Giuliani leads by seventeen among men.

Perhaps because of his position on the War in Iraq, Paul attracts more support from Democrats than Republicans. He also earns 14% of the vote from unaffiliated voters. Paul is currently seeking the Republican Presidential Nomination and is running sixth behind Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Fred Thompson, and Mike Huckabee.

I said long ago, he sounds like a Democrat and he should be running as a Democrat.

Asa side note here and a Hat Tip tip Ragnar Danneskjold, the mischievous little imp, we see that some of Ron Paul's donations have had to be returned because they were made from overseas with stolen credit cards.

The presidential campaign of Texas Rep. Ron Paul received donations from overseas thieves using stolen credit cards, reports CBS station KTVT in Dallas/Fort Worth.

What exactly is it about Ron Paul that draws White Supremicists (Stormfront-scroll down to the advertisement for Paul as President), 9/11 Truthers, (Alex Jones)and now credit card thieves from over seas?

Kooks beget kooks.

Don't forget the trouble Paul is having in his own state!

Ragnar is right, the entertainment value is priceless.
