A new OFF-line pole at polster.com places each of the Republican candidates as follows:
Gov. Mitt Romney (31%)
Sen. Fred Thompson (15%),
former Speaker Newt Gingrich (10%),
Sen. John McCain (9%)
Rudy Giuliani (8%)
Let's see 31+15+10+9+8 = 73. 73%!!! is that right, let's check. It's right. This means that 27% of likely Republican voters responded something else in this poll. Could it be that they will vote for Ron Paul. It would seem likely. Ron Paul provides a real alternative from politics as usual. Given Ron Paul's popularity with unlikely Republican voters, Ron Paul may just take Iowa.
