Ron Paul’s favorable status is better than frontrunners Perry and Romney.


Ron Paul is viewed favorably by 37%, which is higher than Perry’s 33% and slightly less than Romney’s 39%, but Romney is viewed unfavorably by 41% and Perry by 36%, while Paul is viewed unfavorably by 36%.  This means that Ron Paul is +1% with 27% undecided, Perry is -3% with 31% undecided and Romey is -2% with 20% undecided.

In an Associated Press-GfK telephone survey of the general population, 37 percent of the respondents said they have a positive view of the libertarian-leaning representative from Texas, while 36 percent said they did not.

Perry, the Texas governor, and Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, invoked similar favorable/unfavorable ratings that also fell within the poll’s 4.1 percent margin of error. Romney was viewed favorably by 39 percent of Americans, and Perry was viewed favorably by 33 percent.

Another 41 percent said they viewed Romney unfavorably, and 36 percent viewed Perry unfavorably.


Neil Cavuto tells Ron Paul that he’s a genius, that he loves having him on, calls him a “rock star” and says he’d make a great co-anchor.  This a welcomed changed from the hostile treatement he received from many Fox News people in 2007 and 2008.
