How do you account for the stunning lack of interest in Romney, Perry, and Gingrich, even as opinion surveys show major support for these three candidates? It appears that their "support" is mainly due to voter desire to find an alternative to Barack Obama, and that the corporate-owned media have these shallow "supporters" convinced that Ron Paul can't win. If this is the case, then Google Trends is a far more reliable measure of Ron Paul's popularity than the opinion polls could ever be.
Just ask yourself, when was the last time you heard an average voter say that he's voting for Romney, Gingrich, or Perry because he thinks that person will be good for the country? Chances are, you never have. That would explain why so few people seek information about them on the Internet.
To secure the nomination, Ron Paul has only one further need. People who say, "I like Ron Paul, but..." should get off their "buts" and place their votes where their hearts are.
