“According to Technorati, which measures blog search traffic, Ron Paul was the single most searched term after YouTube last week. Go figure.
From the San Francisco Chronicle:
“The presence of the obscure Republican congressman from Texas on a list that includes terms such as “Sopranos,” “Paris Hilton” and “iPhone” is a sign of the online buzz building up around the longshot Republican presidential hopeful — even as mainstream political pundits have written him off.”
That paper points out that Rep. Ron Paul is more popular on Facebook than Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. He’s got more friends on MySpace than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. His MeetUp groups, with 11,924 members in 279 cities, are the biggest in the Republican field. And his official YouTube videos, including clips of his three debate appearances, have been viewed nearly 1.1 million times — more than those of any other candidate, Republican or Democrat, except Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.
According to the website Ron Paul 2008, Congressman Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one of his congressional colleagues to say, “Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another colleague observed, “There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few.”
After Ron Paul’s odds to win the 2008 US Presidential race were slashed from 200/1 to 100/1 and even further from 100/1 to 15/1 in just a two week period (one of the biggest slashing of odds in online gambling history based on Gambling911.com observations), Paul continues to sit pretty at 15 to 1 odds.”
