Iowa Blitz: Ron Paul Goes for Newt’s Throat
November 6, 2011
Ron Paul’s campaign bought airtime in the important caucus state of Iowa in order inform caucus participants about Newt Gingrich’s record not only as a flip-flopper, but a seasoned insider pushing the establishment’s big government agenda of carbon taxes and endless war.
A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll in Iowa puts Gingrich at 33 percent with a double-digit lead over his rivals, including Ron Paul.
The television advertisement campaign by the Paul campaign will undoubtedly chip away at this margin as Iowans discover Gingrich’s duplicitous nature.
The Republican Iowa Caucus follows the Ames Straw poll which begins the process of shaping up who the nominee will be. In August, Michele Bachmann beat Ron Paul by less than one percent to take the Ames Straw poll.
Ron Paul has won a number of polls since, indicating his considerable support among Republicans.
He won a Values Voter Summit straw poll in October and a California Republican Party straw poll in September. On October 22, he took 53 percent of the votes to win an Ohio GOP poll. In early November, he won an Iowa straw poll at the National Federation of Republican Assemblies in Des Moines, Iowa with 82 percent of the votes, according to his campaign.
Bachmann scored dismally in the recent Iowa poll – she came in at 8 percent.
Let’s get this ad out far and wide and counter the establishment media effort to push the globalist Newt as the representative of the American people.
