Last month when we put out our tracking poll the Ron Paul people came after us for not including him. They e-mailed us, they called us, they left a comment on our blog saying he was the 'only real Republican.'
So we added him and he received strong support...from no one. He managed the support of 3% of respondents.
He did win one North Carolina poll last week though. Under the Dome reports that his supporters flooded the Wake County Young Republicans Christmas party and managed to deliver him a victory in their straw poll with the support of 53% of those present.
So we know they can put banners on highway overpasses, put up a lot of signs, and turn out in force for a straw poll.
But as of yet that stuff hasn't done much to move him forward in the broader polls.
