Congressman Ron Paul has once again been proven a top tier presidential candidate in a new aggregate survey combining poll results from over twelve different mainstream sources.
The comprehensive survey, compiled by Real Clear Politics, reveals that Paul is second only to Mitt Romney when directly pitted against Obama.
The RCP survey draws results from polls carried out by Quinnipiac, Rasmussen Reports, Democracy Corps (D), Associated Press, Time, PPP, NBC News, Wall Street Journal, CNN, Washington Post, Reuters and Gallup.
Paul scores an average of 41.6% to Obama’s 47.6%, with only Romney bettering that 6% difference.
The results of the survey were as follows:
1. Obama vs. Romney: 46.0 (D) 44.3 (R) – Obama +1.7
2. Obama vs. Paul: 47.6 (D) 41.6 (R) – Obama +6
