Ron Paul at 1% in the most libertarian state in the nation

Posted by chip91 on August 17, 2007

by Eric Dondero at the Libertarian Republican

California is often cited as the most libertarian state in the nation. There are more Libertarian Party members in California than over 10 other states combined. The California Republican Party itself, is heavily populated by self-described “libertarians” more so than any other single state. Thus, it is surprising to learn that Ron Paul continues to receive very low poll numbers in the Golden State, especially after his 7 months of campaigning, including numerous visits to California. Coming off his mediocre 5th place, 9% showing in Iowa last weekend, this cannot be welcome news for the Ron Paul campaign and Paul supporters.

From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

Rudy Giuliani holds a solid lead in the Republican presidential race in California while Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson are making gains and John McCain is in free-fall, according to a new Field Poll.

The nonpartisan public opinion survey shows the former New York mayor to be the choice of 35 percent… Former Massachusetts Gov. Romney placed second with 14 percent; followed by 13 percent for Thompson… and McCain, the senator from Arizona, at 9 percent.

Rounding out the field are Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, 3 percent; Rep. Duncan Hunter of Alpine, 2 percent; and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas and former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, all at 1 percent. Tommy Thompson dropped out of the race on Sunday.

*Note – Dondero is a former Senior Aide for US Congressman Ron Paul, 1997-2003.
