Rep. Ron Paul

LOS ANGELES, CA - In a month-long, nationwide poll of 1.6 million American voters, Ron Paul (R-TX) has achieved a dramatic lead among all presidential candidates in the running in both political parties.

The poll, conducted by the Truth In Voting Academy, was taken between May 25, and June 25, of this year. Only one question was asked of the voters: "Who do you most want to be the next President of the United States?"

Rep. Paul came in first with 90% out of all 1.6 million polled.

'No One Else' came in second with 5%, and 'Other' came in third with 3%.

'Captain 9/11', also known as Rudy Giuliani (R-WTC) came in a very distant fourth with only 2%.

When asked about his dismal poll results, Captain 9/11 said, "I was there on 9/11, were you? 9/11. Mayor during 9/11. I thought I've heard some crazy notions but not like this. War on Terror. I stood on the rubble. On 9/11. I was there. Are you willing to take back this polling data? The terrorists want to kill us. 9/11. Homeland Security. On 9/11. September 11, 2001. Security. Mayor on 9/11. 9/11. On 9/11. I was there. Were you? War on Terror. On September the eleventh…"

The margin of error for this poll is 2%.
