    In light of now having already raised almost $17 million this quarter with half a month to go and with a massive amount of volunteers I find these thoughts by Jim Ostrowski to be very, very interesting:

    I guess you haven't been paying much attention to the polls lately. The latest poll in South Carolina shows Ron Paul up to 11% now.

    According to Real Clear Politics, Paul is at an overall 6.3 percent in South Carolina. In Iowa he is at 5.7, New Hampshire 7.0, Michigan 4.5, Nevada 5.0, Florida 4.0, and he does not even show up in California or New Jersey. Nationally Ron Paul is at an average 4.5%. Is that good? For a candidate like Ron Paul, yes. Will he win? No. Even if by some wonderful miracle he won the RNC nomination, he would still lose the national race. Why? Too many Americans have been brainwashed into the big government way of thinking. They look to government to solve their problems and to give them hope. Someone like Ron Paul who says government is not the answer is not going to get their votes.

    Remember that most of these polls, when asking about GOP candidates, only ask registered GOP voters. They are not polling the independent voters, the third-party voters, the democrat voters or the no party affiliation voters. Ron Pauls support base is much wider than just the registered GOP voters!

    Plus lots of Paul's younger fans don't take traditional polls administered through land lines.

    "The base of the Republican Party and the base of the Democratic Party are pretty small compared to the number of people who are disgruntled".
