Sen. Rand Paul Sweeps Polls, Fares Best With Independents Against Hillary Clinton

2 Jun 2015 | Washington, DC

GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) swept the competition in recent polls, which also indicates he is the best Republican candidate to go head to head against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

In fact, independent voters — often the votes that swing an election one way or the other — overwhelmingly prefer Paul over Clinton, according to a previous Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. “Unlike the other Republicans, Mr. Paul significantly outpolled Mrs. Clinton among independent voters, by 45%-37%, reported The Wall Street Journal.

Not only are polls indicating independents overwhelmingly support Paul, but so do several national surveys comparing him to fellow GOP candidates in key states.

An ABC/Washington Post Poll has Paul tied for first place in the Republican primary with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is not yet an official candidate but is expected to announce later this summer.

Paul is tied for second with fellow GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson for the Iowa caucus in a Bloomberg/Des Moines Register Poll.

Paul is faring well in New Hampshire, where the top Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton has spent much of her time campaigning.

Bloomberg Politics/Saint Anselm New Hampshire Poll has Paul in first place for the New Hampshire primary.

“A recent PPP Poll showed Sen. Paul is in first place in the New Hampshire Republican Primary and performs best against Hillary compared to all other candidates,” touted Paul’s campaign in an email to supporters.

Not only is Paul in first place in New Hampshire, but he is also in first in the state of Washington.

Independent voters also have Paul leading Clinton in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa and Pennsylvania.

That's not how the GOP currently operates though. Among potential candidates who actually have some potential of being nominated, it's hard not to envision this being another Bush vs. Clinton scenario.

That's right, Wulgar. While Rand Paul offers a great exercise in mock policy debate, or de-mock-racy, he doesn't exactly fit the profile for GOP nominee. Seems Hillary has the show pretty much locked up already.

Call him "Slim Chance", but he hasn't yet left town.

Looks like Perry is making a more renegade pivot - just withdrew his support for the TPP. Hillary recently shot a public accusation of 'voter discrimination' at him:

I don't care much about the issues; leadership is more about selflessness, compassion and desire to help.  Tough talk is typically dumb talk.  Unless in a small room where you can personally back it up.
