Can anyone at the Gazette explain why Ron Paul isn't listed. He has been outpolling Bachman, Huntsman and Gingrich thoughout the whole campaign, and lately even outpolling Perry.

Ron Paul has been added. He was inadvertently omitted from the list. (Gazette online staff)

Thank You ...he seems to be the only candidate with a firm grip on the reality of the nation's economic situation, and certainly the only one with brains enough to foster a solution.

I've always said Obama is an empty suit...well a few of those guys above Paul's name qualify as well. (Bachmann is a no brainer- literally and figuratively.)

Sadly, Ron Paul does not have a chance of being elected.
