Ron Paul, Mounting a Charge

(via WSJ)

While 8% is not exactly a dominating figure, it is much more than Paul had several months ago. Paul has been gaining popularity, primarily through grassroots and on-line support. He has raised $10.5 million and has established himself as more than just a fringe candidate. While unlikely that he will seriously challenge for the Republican primary, it is encouraging to see this surge.

Another take-away from the chart is the impressive lead that Mitt Romney holds over all other candidates. With this lead in NH, and a slight lead still in Iowa, Romney is in a very good spot.
