Ron Paul's stealth support
So what accounts for the fact that Ron Paul's presidential candidacy attracts tons of online support but makes barely a blip in opinion polls? Someone's actually gone to the trouble to investigate.
The site USA Election Polls serves up all manner of polling analysis to political junkies, and has concluded that much of Paul's support comes from the 18-29 age cohort. Pollsters have a notoriously tough time getting younger people to take part in their surveys, and the phenomenon has been made worse in recent years because pollsters call only landlines, while many young people are all-cell-all-the-time.
Savvy wealth-builders of all ages might see Ron Paul in person next month at the Agora Financial Investment Symposium in Vancouver; he's among the invited guest speakers. Check out the full lineup and sign up while a few slots remain open!
