Ron Paul Ad (New) – Rick Santorum: A Record of Betrayal


I’ve been waiting for the Paul camp to really go after Santorum, and it’s finally happened via this very effective and truthful ad.

Ron Paul Surging In New Hampshire


The New Hampshire primary is fast approaching – its on the 10th – and Ron Paul is experiencing positive news; his campaign is surging in New Hampshire, at least according to a Washington Times/JZ Analytics Poll taken on Wednesday. While Romney sits quite comfortably ahead, polling at 38%, Paul holds 24% to Santorum’s 11 and Gingrich’s 9.

Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton had this to say:
“On the heels of his close third place finish at the Iowa Caucus, Ron Paul is polling a strong second place in New Hampshire. From here on out, it is a two-man race between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney given that one of the tickets out of Iowa was a dead-end due to Rick Santorum’s glaring lack of viability,”

Personally, I expect a Romney win, a Paul second, and Santorum third. I expect Santorum’s campaign will begin to really lose its steam – his issues will now be brought to light and he’ll experience harsh criticisms for the first time – but I’m not sure if this drop will happen before or after New Hampshire. Santorum’s numbers have risen in New Hampshire, but I expected them to be slightly higher after his performance in Iowa. In fact, when I looked at the Washington Time’s article I was quite suprised Santorum was sitting only at 11.

One thing is certain though; a two man race between Romney and Paul is likely in the makings, and I wonder what would result. The candidates are staring into the face of of a GOP electorate that is continuing to catapult candidate after candidate to top tier status and is wary of Romney.

The following image shows the full results:
