image for Ron Paul Will Surprise and Win in an Avalanche
The people's choice

WASHINGTON (FMLiveWire) -- Ron Paul will win the US presidency and surprise everyone say the more perceptive political commentators.

He is increasingly well positioned than the flagging campaigns of his pro-war Republican opponents.

With his on-line donation surges, Ron Paul has far more campaign money than other GOP candidates as he gains more and more traction.

Paul has huge popular support and an ocean swell of contributions.

His media-created opponents are going broke as their funders reach contribution limits, while Paul's more than 125,000 donors could raise 20 million dollars this quarter, with more to come.

In sharp contrast both John McCain and Mike Huckabee are relatively impoverished and lack popular support.

Ron Paul's momentum has given Rudy Giuliani such a massive headache he recently had to enter a hospital, as more and more scandal surfaces about his activities during 911 and with his mistress.

Romney is bankrolling his campaign himself and looks like he is wasting his wealth. At some point he will need to cut his losses.

Ron Paul is winning huge support even from Democratic voters due to his opposition to the war in Iraq, as well as his defense of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and civil liberties, all in the face of George Bush's unpopular and repressive police state measures.

Paul's populist support is national, and he addresses national security with his policy on secure borders. Paul's desire to abolish the Federal Reserve, get the USA out of debt, end budget deficits and return to the gold standard are also striking a chord.

Pollster John Zogby says that Ron Paul "is going to do better than anyone expects." He believes Paul will climb into the double-digits in Iowa.

"He's different, he stands out," Zogby states. "He's against the war and he has the one in four Republicans who oppose the war all to himself. Libertarianism is hot, especially among free-market Republicans and 20-somethings. And he's an appealing sort of father figure. He's his own brand. All he needs to do is beat a couple of big names in Iowa, then New Hampshire is friendlier territory. After all, the state motto is "Live Free or Die!"
