January 2, 2012- Republican Congressman Ron Paul of Texas argued his electability against Barack Obama on Sunday. Paul has seen his popularity amongst Iowa Republicans jump over the last three to four weeks. He said he was electable saying, “Texans have elected me on 12 occasions.” Adding, “I am the most electable of all the Republican candidates.”
Paul is locked in a heated battle with the ex-Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, as the two start the 2012 campaign. The Iowa caucuses are just one day away and the two are neck and neck at the polls.
Paul is getting support from those that feel the rights of the state supersede those of the federal government. He campaigns against abortion which makes him popular amongst Christian conservatives who are a large base of the party.
Paul’s popularity remains strong even though he has been attacked by the mainstream media of late. He was seen Sunday on national television being interviewed after spending the New Year’s celebrations with his family and friends in Texas.
Paul said in an interview on Sunday he feels many Americans support his non-interventionist policy on foreign relations.
Paul’s strength in Iowa should propel him to one of the top two candidates the Republicans have going forward. His grass roots support has taken hold in Iowa, is increasing in New Hampshire and has shown significant signs of catching on in South Carolina.
