Ron Paul in Third Place Behind Ghouliani and the Huckster

AOL News' Election '08 showcases two online election polls on its page - one on the Democratic presidential contenders and the other on the GOP candidates. It also shows the polls' results for each candidate from both camps, including the vote totals for each poll.

Here's the GOP poll:

Who would you like to see win the Republican presidential nomination?
Rudy Giuliani 23%
Mike Huckabee 19%
Ron Paul 16%
Fred Thompson 15%
John McCain 10%
Mitt Romney 9%
Other 6%
Tom Tancredo 1%
Duncan Hunter 1%
Total Votes: 84,818
Note on Poll Results

Here's the Democratic poll:

Who would you like to see win the Democratic presidential nomination?
Hillary Clinton 23%
Barack Obama 20%
John Edwards 15%
Other 13%
Joe Biden 11%
Bill Richardson 8%
Dennis Kucinich 6%
Chris Dodd 2%
Mike Gravel 2%
Total Votes: 81,171
Note on Poll Results

The GOP poll shows that Ron is in third place behind Ghouliani and the Huckster. Considering the Republican straw polls normally show Ron at 2 percent nationally (aside from the fact that those polls are rigged, simply because the respondents to those polls are Neo-Con supporting Republicans), it's going to be interesting to see how the political hacks will try to spin the results of this latest poll.

While I'm not a Kucinich fan (considering he's a socialist on so many of the domestic policies), he takes a cue from Paul on the war and the War on Terrorism issues. His Ron Paul-esque rhetoric does earn him a few gold stars from me (despite the fact his positions on the domestic issues are quite terrible as far as I'm concerned). The fact that he has garnered 6 percent of the vote in the Democratic camp shows that the Neo-Cons in the Democratic Party are just equally as dangerous as the Neo-Cons in the GOP.

(Hat tip goes to Lew for mentioning this poll in the first place.)
